Stewart S-51D

stewart-s51


First flown in March 1994. Designed by Jim D. Stewart, the Stewart S-51D is an all aluminum 2-place scale reproduction of the North American P-51D Mustang. The kit is prefabricated and held together with pop rivets for shipping. Flush aircraft rivets are installed by the builder. A fast build kit was available for US$89,000, ans the basic kit for US$64,000. The kit is included on the FAA 51 % rule list.

The aircraft features dual controls and is fully aerobatic. The S-51D utilizes liquid cooled engines ranging from 300 to 700 hp. The 91” diameter, constant speed four-blade Hartzell propeller is driven through spur gear reduction with a 0.469 (2.13:1) ratio. Using a 400 hp engine, the S-51D duplicates P- 51 performance, except for top speed.
