65 in (1651 mm)
Wing Area: 734 inē (47.4 dmē)
Weight: 8-10 lb (3629-4540 g)
Fuselage Length: 56.6 in (1438 mm)
Engine Required: 2-stroke .61-.90 cu in or 4-stroke .91-1.20 cu in

As with most of my planes, "If it can't go straight up, it ain't got enough power" is my basic rule of thumb.
I have the H9 P-47 with a 66" wing that I used a Power 110 on 9S with a CC 110 amp esc and it balanced out with no additional weight to balance. If your Mustang has a forward hatch to give access to the forward tank area behind the firewall then you are in good shape to do the conversion-----your power paks must be up in the forward tank area to get a good CG without adding weight. A power 60 or equivalent on a 6S pak would be minimal power.
