I'm in the process of a run-up test on the P-51B G&C 4250-540 motor to check it & the prop, for balance & performance. The P-51D BBD has the same 540 motor. I have the numbers posted on the test I did on the BBD "FMS V7.5 P-51 BBD: The 540 Power Plant!" if you want to check it out.

Here are a couple of quick pics I just shot showing both batteries in the P-51B.

I have 3 5s 4000s without a home and an 85 amp esc, plus a 50 dollar credit at BH.

Now I just need the plane to be in stock.

I really like the new planes FMS is churning out!

Keep in mind, those numbers were in conjunction with the 1mm prop mod.

I got mine from Raymond at RC Castle. The shipping came out to $68 since I also ordered some other parts along with it. TBH, rc castle is about $5 more total if you were to order the P-51B from instead of Philip. I prefer to order from philip, but sadly he was already out of stock of the DD.

The 1mm zip tie prop mod which increases the blade pitch to 10 +-. I covered all the info on my "FMS V7.5 P-51 BBD: Dyno Tuning the Prop!" pg.

I just finished the same mod on the P-51B, but I'm not ready to post that page yet.

I think he sold out of the DD within hours of posting it!
