    Need advice on the best set up for Ziroli P-51 Giant Mustang

    Being that I am new to RC Airplanes and building my first ever giant scale plane I need some professional, no BS, advice on what power setup(s) I should use to provide the best there is setup for this build.

    Below is a list of components that will be installed in the Ziroli P-51 Giant Mustang and the control unit to be used.

    1. Futaba T8FG Super with R6208 Receiver. Power requirements are, according to Futaba, is “Receiver
    battery, size and mAh rating dependent on aircraft and number of servos
    1700mAh NiMH Transmitter Battery.

    For servos I will be using the following:
    Savox SC-1257TG Super Speed Titanium Gear Digital Servo-savsc1257tg
    Speed(@4.8V sec/60): .09
    Torque(@4.8V oz-in): 111.1
    Speed(@6.0V sec/60): .07
    Torque(@6.0V oz-in): 138.9
    b. Savox SC-1256TG High Torque Titanium Gear Digital Servo-savsc1256tg
    Speed(@4.8V sec/60): .18
    Torque(@4.8V oz-in): 222.2
    Speed(@6.0V sec/60): .15
    Torque(@6.0V oz-in): 277.7

    3. The engine for this aircraft will be the OS GT-55 and according to the manufacturer the power requirements for it is as follows:
    The voltage of power source is 4.8~7.4V (rated). (Ni-Cd, Ni-H 4~6 cells, Li-Po, Li-Fe 2 cells)

    One thing for sure is that I want to order everything needed in one order. That also includes the switches, starters and it’s power pack, and anything else that would be required to complete this setup.

    Prefer A123 batteries with proper charger.

    Hard to say for sure. Have you tried calling Nick Ziroli and finding out what he uses in his model? That would be my suggestion to make sure you get the right parts.
