This superb looking P-51D is from our top quality Durafly range and has enough scale detail and features to keep any warbird enthusiast happy. The 1100mm range offers the RC pilot a practical size model that can be easily transported and uses the ever popular 2200mAh 3s Lipoly pack, yet at the same time, the model is large enough to have presence and is able to tackle most airfields, not to mention a little wind, making it very practical.
As well as looking fantastic, this Mustang is plug and fly, meaning very little assembly work is needed. The powerful outrunner motor, ESC, navigation lights, servoless electric retracts & servos are all pre-installed leaving you to glue on the tailfeathers and some scale detailing, bolt on the plug in wings and go flying!
We have flown this superb P-51 extensively during testing and it will not disappoint, there is plenty of power for those really scale warbird aerobatics and the airframe is viceless with no hint of a tip stall. The pre-installed flap servos have a nice, slow operation to help prevent ballooning and the flaps themselves allow the approach speed to get down to a crawl without a hint of wingrock. There is no doubt, this is one fantastic looking warbird and it flies as easily as a low wing trainer!
Hi ripen, 3548 with 900kv with two blade 11/7 and 50amp esc is perfect , 4cell, it rocks the sky... But reinforce the nose otherwise you will damage your battery... Drill the nose wall in both side and insert carbon rod 4-5 mm, it lasts long... Hope I m helpful...
Also check the mounting of the landing gear. Mine fell out on the maiden flight upon a light landing! They appeared to not be glued in adequately. I reglued with epoxy and they are now very solid. Cheers, Jay
i wouldnt start off with this plane i would get somthing like a supercup and learn on that and then when your ready just moved through different planes for example: i went from a supercub whcih is 3 channel and converted it to 4 channel and then i went to the mustang so i hoped that sorta helped a little.
Are the wheels well forward enough of the CoG, for taxying and slow roll. Other 'Branded' taildrgrs i own, have major trend to nose over. And, so, is CoG easy to attain with forward lipo position, and no added lead.
GRAHAM good call but this is fine. The wheels are almost froward of the leading edge due to the angle of them. Mind you most tail drag ers tend to nose over (more so on grass). So on landing you will need too apply up elevator. I hope this helps
Actually, HK promised a Non-Durafly P-38 a year ago (March 2012) even a "s*xtape" was filtratedto to youtube. But the project scrapped after due to its complexity. :-(
So back to the question. A twin warbird? Or civilian ? 8-b
the mustang is the most gorgeous WW2 plane of all I only don't like the funny colors A big bright yellow tail or blue nose or checker board front end etc There is one real mustang that existed called " KILLER" that was all grey and traditional black It looks AWESOME I hope HK will come out with that scale paint job soon Ill buy one for sure
a the all you people buying the P51D take the motor out and loctite all the mounting bolts..mine fell out
Ordered sunday night, arrived following friday to VIC from NSW. Very nice plane, all parts fit well and all electronics worked straight out of the box. Spinner was quite well balanced too which is good - motor also sounds nice and smooth. The kit also includes glue and a screwdriver as well as some spare bolts, screws, horns and clevis's - very nice, thank you!
Installed AR800 plus telemetry module in the generous internal space and this has allowed me to put the nav lights on a separate channel for turning them on and off during flight. Will maiden next weekend and report on flight characteristics then - but so far, 5 *'s HK, very nice plane.

recieved my p51 it is a very good scale plane built really good only problem i found so far is the flaps and aileron control arms could have been smaller lenght i had to screw coupling in a fair way a bit worried they might strip in flight.i am going to run stock setup with a turnigy transmiter and reciever.i can not wait for maiden flight just to windy here in tassie at moment.will post flight review when i can. i hope you will enjoy your p51 as much as i reckon i will.
Excellent flying scale model. Goes together easily and flys as is. I put a 40mm block of foam in the front of the battery compartment to bring battery back slightly for correct CG and to hold battery firmly.

I bought this with some reservations as I'm only a beginner / intermediate flyer. The plane assembly in a matter of minutes and off I went.
Maiden flight nearly scared the @@@ out of me. It went like a rocket and rolled like a beast. Handling was a little bit out (roll and nose heavy) but what a machine!!!!! I found the CG to be to far forward with 2200Mah batteries so added washers to the tail to correct.
