    P-51C at ~70% scale as ultralight?

    Thank you Kevin. I was thinking I would swap in Ultracruiser wings, maybe redo just the fuselage skins in lighter aluminum like the ultracruiser, and with a 30lb 2 stroke engine (ZDZ500), I think I'd be okay, but it's a lot of work/changes

    Hi People, Newbie here, thanks for letting me join. I'm very interested in this thread, as I am currently planning a project nearly identical. I have purchased the plans for a Hummel Ultracruiser, and am planning to modify the fuselage to look more conventional, similar to a P51D but probably...
