Nice on Shoebox, It does make a more realistic sound than the normal electric whine. have you flown it yet with that 4blader fitted. ? Cheers

Cheers for that fly boy3, im glad you like it. i havent flown her just yet as im waiting to get perfect weather AND when ive got time to do it, ( working shifts). But when i do, i will be posting the maiden flight here for you to see. The 4 blade prop is version 8, i found a site on a american furom in which they show you how to do this, giving the p51 more thrust.

Hi Shoebox, sounds good. How much weight did it add?

Thank you Frank, i do have some photos of my installation. I did decide to install my speakers in the wings instead of the fuselarge. I wanted to hide them the best way i could. The whole installation didnt take that long to be honest, the main job was the wiring and were to put it all. ill have some photos for you later on, cheers.

I hope you mean with the extra weight the total weight is 3200 grams wink, i.e. 1150 grams more than standard.
