Power System for World Models P-51D (57 inch wing span) @ 6 lbs.


I am trying to see if anyone else might have used two power setups such as the:

1. HIMAX 3630-1500 in the HIMAX 3.3:1 ratio gearbox?

2. CEM600-2 with the 4.5:1 ratio planetary gearbox?

This is for a World Models P-51D 57 inch wing span P-51D Mustang that is anticipated to be a total of 6 lbs. fully flight ready.

Here's the WEB SITE:
Anyone has dealt with the above power setups?

Okay, I think that I have narrowed a good setup and that's the HIMAX 3630/1533 planetary gearbox (3.3:1 ratio) swinging the APC "E" 14 X 10 Prop. and using 14 -cells, GP-3300mAH, Ni-MH's

Here's the P-Calc evaluation.....

Any comments on the proposed power system?

Comments :

Very sporty but no 'instant' vertical climb like my hotliner's type climb.
Excellent agility thou at super heavy weight. Roll is axial, loop can be made at 3/4 WOT, loop can be quite large at WOT.
Very good /solid control in VERY slow speed.Take off or Landing just like STOL type plane.
Overall perf can be contributed by the designs itself, I had flown ic version years ago. IC version flown fast on a .40?.45 in straight line. Take off distance is apparently MUCH SHORTER than IC.
Will try use 6s2p or 7s with a higher pitched prop to improve vert. perf...
