Default Mustang P51 with YS FZ115-WS

Are there any threads regarding the build of a 40 size Mustang match with the new YS FZ115-WS, I seen a couple of videos of the world models 40 size mustang match with the old YS110 but nothing with the new engine, any help will be greatly appreciated.

What are you looking for as far as info? I race many different planes with YS engines. How much nitro and what prop you plan to run on a 40 size mustang? What mustang kit or ARF you plan to run?

most 40 size mustangs of the last ten years are big planes. most over 540 square inch on wing.
Bob if want to do this let me know and i can help you. a Wm mustang and a YS115 War Bird Special will take the plane to 160 mph on 50% nitro. the engine likes this nitro also but not required.

Thanks, I am very interested. I was planning to use this Twist 150 ARF I just scored, but a smaller and faster plane is more interesting in many ways. My background is in high power turbo 4cylinder sports cars, so anything with "too much" gets my attention. I'll be reaching out to you.

Have you flown RC planes before?
"Too much" can get you in trouble real quick if you are a "noob".
Just like sports cars, you don't learn overnight, so get informed.

Other than that: it is amazing what these .40 sized planes do on a YS 110 or 115....so go for it! They are fast, way faster than you would expect! If it scares you, it is just fast enough.

Rudeboy, that is great advice and thanks! I have been flying for a while, I've just been out of the game since about 2007. Hold my beer and watch this.... ��

Negative. I've only run os 25,46,60. Those were a combat wing, a trainer and an ugly stick. I've setup an MDS 2.18 in a Dave Patrick 330 with a Perry pump and carb, that was fun, but that's where I left off when I had to put the planes up in 2007 without ever flying it and did not survive the hiatus.

Hello Airraptor, I dont have a good plane for a YS115 yet, but I am shopping for the engine anyway. As far as the OP, sure dunno. I have a new Twist 150 that I will be putting together next, not sure what engine will go in it, either a FS120 Surpass II (not really as strong as I'd like I am worried) or my trusty MDS 2.18 pumped setup out of the old Dave Patrick 330L. I already have both of these engines. I wouldnt mind picking up a Mustang, but I am not sure what to go with. Got any recommendations for ARF?

I know Dave Sullivan a long time race winner is selling a Race ready world models mustang with servos engine all race ready. just bind and fly. If you don't know Dave he is a top notch build for many guys in the RC community. I will send you a PM with his number if interested.
