Powered Up UM J-3

So I love the UM J-3 but unless it dead calm outside you cant fly it. Now most pilots would just say "Fly indoors" but I have nowhere to do that so I wanted some more power so I can fly outside when I want. So I ripped out the stock motor and gearbox, and I mean ripped out. I think parkzone went a little too much on the glue. I dropped in a UM P-51 motor and gearbox along with the P-51 prop. I have to wait for the foam safe glue to dry (forever) so I can check the COG. As of right now I am going to leave the faux motor off to help with the weight.
