It adds a slight increase in speed and climb from what I experienced with mine, but I prefer the MAS electric 10x8 the best so far... not a huge increase in speed but a nice pulling power.

Am a bit concerned with tip stalling though, since the ailerons are on the wingtips.

Have you tried this yet? Im interested also.

I noticed it has an 18 A esc, but the corsiar has a 30 A. Does the corsiar and mustang have the same motor?

Yes they have the sam motor. Prop is smaller on P-51. do not prop up the P-51 without up grading ESC.

It's a 10x7, ran it up in the garage and it'll have plenty of power on the park 480

Good Cheap Motor Servo ESC Combo

I got a Exceed Monsterpower 10 motor ($18) and Volanco 40a ESC ($23) from with some $3.50 TP 9g servos. Total cost shipped was $60. They also sell 3S2200 lipos for under $20 when their in stock.

Got the Air Frame Kit PKZ1870, motor mount PKZ1825, T-28D prop PKZ1012 and adapter PKZ1011 and Motor Mount from MyAtomic shipped for $78.

I did have to drill two holes in the motor mount and press the shaft to the other end with a brass hammer. I could of used the Monsterpower 10 prop adapter with some washer and save my self the hassle of pressing the shaft and saved $3.

Total cost so far is $138. I'm using a existing AR6100 Rx, 3S2200mah Lipo and Charger.

Using the T-28D Prop it pulled over 300w. If it wasn't so windy I'd be flying right now!

Hope this help someone...

For anyone with heavier p-51's who may be interested...

Tried Flaperons today (ended up being spoilerons i guess). At first i had them set to pop the ailerons down, which caused it to nose down a little and start dropping altitude, thought that was odd so i set them to pop up and it works beautiful! Comes in nice and slow and controlable, id guess it cut maybe a third off the landing length.

I know she lands fine in stock form, but im using 2200 25C battery which adds alot of weight, and the E-flite motor has almost no resistance to freewheeling.

Can someone explain why it worked better as spoilerons? it did slow it down alot, but also really seemed to float.

Motor Swap Report

I put my Gunfighter up this evening with the 480 Plus and DonsRC pentium 40 amp esc/MAS 10x8 prop on Flightmax 20c 1800. I wanted to get pics and video but two of my children went with me and it was too hectic. The plane flew great with LOTS of speed with the hammer down gettin low and fast. I thought my Corsair was fast with same motor and Stock Prop, but after the Stang it feels like more of a floater. Only prob I had with the Stang was the spinner vibrated too much. I confirmed this by taking the spinner off and running up the throttle. FLew great but made an aweful buzz. I will replace spinner with a better unit. I need to be more maticulous about balanceing my props too. It wont get flown again for a few months as I am going on a 4 month business trip soon, but when I return it will get the APC 9x9. Aside from the Stang, my 5yr old son and I were doing the buddy box thing with DX6i and DX5e on my BRushless/aileron HZ cub and when I was looking down at his transmitter to adjust his throttle setting he did a crazy dive and pitch up that broke the strut hooks and folded the wing. Put it straight into the ground. Minor scrapes and it will rise again eventually with some new parts.

Excellent!!!!!!! Great job Matt!!!

Since everyone's talking about prop changes and handling, I did some today. I took my Stang out with the Corsair prop and ran it on a Dualsky 2200map 25C lipo, and a Super Tigre 1500map 15C.

Definitely LOVE the 2200map 25C set up!!!! Lots of power, more speed, great verts, and longer fly time. Best set up yet. Still gotta hook up the watt meter and check the numbers. The 1500 was good but I still think the stock prop and battery are better in comparison. If the numbers are good, and in the "safe zone", I'm going to stick with the Corsasir prop and 2200 lipo. Although I haven't tried the 1500 with the stock prop. Hmmmmm.

Do you guys think the MAS 10x8 gives a better performance than the Corsair prop & 2200? I'll try it if it's going to be better. But if it's only marginal, it ain't gonna be worth the trip to the LHS.

Also did a video with each, but not sure if I'll post them. Just a bunch of loops, inverted flight, rolls, and probably the lowest pass I can do without a high speed belly landing (8 inches!! The prop tips were litterally 3" off the grass!! Scared the crap outta me, I didn't mean to get THAT low!!), from the cockpit view. Oh, I did buzz a dog on the field who tried jumping on me! Glad I use a Tx strap or the lil punk woulda knocked the Tx outta my hands. He ran out to see if he could catch my plane, so I buzzed him & forced him to duck and go running off the field. (How's that for a dogfight?!) LOL

All I can say is...... I LOVE THIS BIRD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Honestly Moonbeam, if it is a PITA for you to get one I wouldn't worry about it. The two props are close in performance IMHO, I just didn't like the way the stock spinner sat on the adapter and the lack of "purchase" of the nut on the threads of the T-28 adapter when I installed it. For some reason mine was only catching a few threads and I was not cool with that!

And 2200s are the only way to go... if you have them or are looking to buy batteries.
