Great Build Greg.
I'm curious about your experience with the MPI Arming Shunt on a 10s lipo pack. I love the idea of these arming shunts as they are a great safety item protecting both the operator and the lipo. They're constructed with 40amp sermos connectors which don't seem robust enough for a 10s powersupply. Are you concerned about this? What has your experience been on this issue? (MPI if you're listening how about coming to market with a 100amp arming shunt?)
What a beautiful plane, thanks Greg

I flew all summer using the MPI Arming Switch and didn't have a problem with it. They are rated for about 45amps continuous and 90-100amps peak which is about what the P-51 draws. It will also be in the upcoming NEAT Fair 2007 video from SKS.

The 10s LiPo supply does cause a respectable spark when inserting the plug into the MPI Arming Switch so look for a solution in Issue 2 of AMP'D. It is called, "Arming the Big Boys".
