I decided to modify the 1100 mm P-51D from 3S to handle 4S batteries. The mod was pretty simple as mods go. I exchanged the 30a ESC for a 60a ESC from Hobby King. There are a series of pictures below to show this easy mod. It took about 90 minutes, not including touch up paint drying time. I can now fit a 4S 4000 mah battery. Result - a much better performing airplane.

I saw the beautiful job that Karltrek did on his FW190 last weekend at RSA in Cupertino. I knew I had to add the flaps to my FW190. After looking at the construction of the wing, I decided to try to make split flaps. I used 1/16 " sheet styrene and 1/4 " round styrene tubes. It was actually pretty easy to do. Slicing the wing foam was probably the hardest part. I used small sections of 9/32" brass tube to act as hinges. As the plane is not super scale anyway, I think it came out ok.
