Kit is designed for Robart custom gear. If using other gear,
it must contact support for copies of ribs need to be hand cut
to mount standard retracts.
Spinner: ZINQ spinners will not fit this model due to their mounting.
The O.S. FF-320 should have plenty of power to fly the Giant P-51. The cylinder
will protrude through the sides of the cowl. The engine is only a couple of oz
heavier than a US 41 and shouldn't be a problem.
(The 5cyl. radial won't fit in cowl.)
The ST3250 will work okay in the giant 51 also. Don't expect super speed or
much vertical performance but will work fine for most maneuvers.
