P-51D: Props!


UPDATE 7/16/2012: Since this page was written 2 years ago, I have since updated the aluminum/spinner combo to a more scale 3 1/2"/89mm combo from AirBorne Models.

On some versions, and depending on the chosen supplier, you will get the stock 4-Blade/Spinner combo along with a 2-Blade/Spinner combo. There has been, and IMO, will continue to be an endless debate on motor/prop combination's with this plane. After watching all the pros & cons discussed, I have settle on 2, maybe 3 prop selections.

Of course the scale 4-Blade is a 'gimme. You can't beat the sound it makes flying by 'ya!

My new VarioPROP 4-Blade on the Mustang!

The detailed stock 4-Blade prop on the Mustang.

Note: The FMS 2-Blade/Spinner combo.....the spinner, due to it's thickness, won't fit the SK 42-50 650Kv shaft adapter. By that I mean the adapter shaft is to short to accept the spinner and the prop hub with enough threads to accept a nut. To solve this little ditty, I purchased Tower Hobbies 3 1/4" Nylon Spinner & Aluminum Backing plate. It fits nicely on both the 650 and the 580 with threads to spare.

Up-Date 5/15/2010: This is the method I use to paint the Prop Tips! I use Krylon OSHA Safety Yellow #1813.

UP-DATE 6/13/2010: I thought I would post some 2-Blade options that I have on hand.

UP-DATE 8/04/2010: I just finished detailing the 4-Blade Prop with Spec. Labels & Hamilton Standard logos. See the Decal section for details!

UP-DATE 9/19/2010: I fitted my new VarioProp 4-Blade 12C to the Mustang today. I also made an 40mm x 8mm adapter so I could fit the stock 2-Blade Spinner and backing plate to the SK 4250 650kv motor.
