Home made P - 82 mustang
My club, Sacramento Area Modelers, has a group of about 25 people that get together every first Sunday of the month to pylon race Model Tech P-51D mustangs with same engine, prop, fuel etc. The P-51D is discontinued but my LHS, R/C Country, can still order lots from the manufacturer just for us in RTC form. I thought it would be fun to convert two of these models into a P-82. The P-51 kit comes with about 3 to 5 degrees incidence in the wing. My question is if we modify our P-51s by putting zero incidence on wing engine and horizontal stab ether by trimming the wing saddle or adding a shim to the horizontal stab for more speed, should I leave the factory incidence on my P-82? Also, what degree of right engine thrust, if any, do you recommend for a twin? I have some scale drawings of both planes and intend to lengthen the tail like the original P-82 for more one engine out stability. Any ideas, comments, appreciated. I already have all the stuff I need for the conversion (about 700 bucks worth).
