Well we finally got our electrified TopFlite Giant Scale P-51d into the air and it was a great success with the 24" SoloProp 4 blader. The plane had more than enough power and the throttle never made it all the way to 50% in this first effort. A last minute air leak prevented us from retracting the gear which was too bad and caused the tail wheel collapse on the bouncy first landing.
Here is our setup
weight with lipos: 25 lbs.
2, ThunderPower 6s, 9000 mAh lipos in series producing 12s, 9000 mAh
SoloProp 24" 4 bladed scale prop (Carl Peter was very responsive to lots of questions and he coordinated with Tru-Turn to make it all come together)
Tru-Turn custom cut spinner (thanks Ric and Stephanie for your tireless effort to match this new prop to your spinner and make the mounting work safely!)
Here is a short video to prove its not a static prop:

and here is a long video of the maiden flight (it was shot in HD format and converted to MPEG2 so the download could take a minute)
Recharge after flight replaces 2300 mAh of the 9000 mAh capacity in the 12s setup
