Default new moter for park p51

I have a Park Zone P-51.I don't like the lack of power to weight it has as stock.What kind of moter, esc, and battery set up would geve me more of what I want? the ket comes with a speed 480 moter a 9 cell li. other than that I don't know much about the tec stuf of this kit. I'm more into the gas then the epower. Any help would be nice.

Default RE: new moter for park p51

i have tried out many mods on this plane,a motor swap causes problems because the standard motor has lines on its shaft to grip the pinion,a new motor will not thus the pinion spins on the shaft,thread lock does not help,the best mod we did was to get a new battery pack made up,we got a 10 cell pack made using the same size cells,it makes a big difference,prop changes just cause problems with mounting as the prop drives off a hex on the shaft so the only thing that fits are gws slo-fly props-not a lot of good!if you do change to 10 cells you will need a 5 gram weight at the tail to counteract the extra pack weight,good luck.
