    A standard Dubro spinner fits the plane perfectly. Can't remember the size offhand. I gave up on my Guillows P51, as it was one of my first builds, and a tank! I may make a lighter/better wing someday, and get back on it.

    My Guillows Cessna 150 is a really nice flyer, but not at first. I had the incidences a bit off, causing the right wing to lift up. Next, the rudder was a bit off, causing it to tailslide to the left, which is actually worse than if it had been off the other way. Topping it all off, I did not have right thrust. It was an almost unflyable sidewinder. Corrected the probelms and its beautiful. Tiny little misalignments kill these little planes. The Park 250 would be a bit large too. I had a similar sized motor when I first got mine flying well, but the torque made launch difficult. Switched to a motor the size of a Park 180 and it is much better.

    Sounds doable for the Cherokee as long as it's light. I've always used 3cell since my planes are tanks. My sheeted Guillows Cessna 150 actually flys well at 6oz! but it needs the 3s power.

    I thought about getting the 2gm outrunners from HC, but the problem I've had is that I always end up needing more noseweight, since I like scale stuff. I've done a few builds where I used 10gm motors, trying to keep things light, and needed noseweight anyways. In that case, may as well just use a larger motor. The 2gm jobbie would be good for designs like the Ember and Vapor. Things like miniature Slow Sticks, where the boom and tail are very light.

    The lightest I ever got was using a 10gm outrunner with a TBird6 in the nose of my 20" Guillows Storch, with no additional ballast needed.

    The Park180 is a good motor, and definitely more powerful than the similar sized low dollar motors. I didn't want to spend the extra money, but when testing it I realized that you get what you pay for. I have one in my Dumas 17" Peashooter, that uses around 1/2 throttle or less to fly. I'm convinced the 180 would fly a pretty large plane, for its tiny size.
