  • How to Improve FMS 4 Blade pitch and overall plane speed

    Several people have asked about the 1mm blade prop pitch mod which will help improve the speed and climb capability of all the FMS 4 blade prop planes (P-51s, 3D planes, etc.). The mod involves putting small zip ties as shims under each blade. Here is a link to Sundancers thread on RC groups which shows how he did the mod.

      I've up-dated the info Mark has referenced on the FMS P-51 1mm shim mod. I've added additional info on the 3 FMS G&C 4250 motors including some additional prop tests I conducted in cooperation with Motion RC. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1897029

          I've done this mod on my FMS P-51 as well, it was well worth doing. I feel like it has transformed this plane!!!

            This mod is very effective! Easy to implement, reversible, and it works.
