Default worldmodels p51, Irvine .72 engine

What problems will i run into putting a .72 size Irvine into my 40 sized P51-- The plane needs weight in the nose to balance it correctly so im putting a big 2 stroke in it-- and planning on using a 4 blade prop-- using the conversion chart that was posted on this site. Will be breaking engine in next week-- if anyone has any suggestions or recommendations id appreciate it. Thanks

Holy moly. An Irvine .72. I have an MDS .48 and it goes like a bat out of hell. I had no problems with needing weight in the nose, it balanced with nothing extra. Fun flying model, have fun!

Well, I had a G90 in mine and I installed a 61fx in his, Both with Pitss mufflers. Run it sideways and a little tail weight. Also glass up the corners of the firewall. I flew mine without incident for over a year until a battery failed but it was a smoooooooth plane
