The H-King P51 "Galloping Ghost" is the first in a new mini-series from H-King, the "Reno Aces", WW2 fighters dressed to impress at the air races. The P-51 "Galloping Ghost" with the included stock 3108-1070KV brushless motor offers a really quick model straight out of the box with speeds approaching 100mph when using the recommended 2200mah 4S lipo. However, if you are an experienced hand and are looking for 100+ mph speeds then there is the optional drop-in fit 3108-1170KV 'Pro' brushless motor. This will give your great-looking Reno Ace a really ballistic performance on the same prop, ESC, and 4S battery for those that can handle the extra rotational torque on launch.


The P-51 as a design has excellent flying qualities, but the H-King "Galloping Ghost" especially so. Its low drag design and generous wing section results in a model that really grooves and feels locked in at full power, but slow it down and it is a real pussycat too, and just as much fun. The stall is very benign, basically non-existent, the controls remain effective through the complete speed range, and aerobatics, it can do them all. Once you're done with your 6+min flight, fully flared landings are very easy to achieve and make belly landing the P-51 a pure joy.


The full-size "Galloping Ghost" started life being supplied to the Army Air Force during World War II. Once the war was finished it was offered to the public as surplus stock in 1946, being sold for just $3,500. The plane was re-registered as NX7911 and named "Galloping Ghost" and was entered for the popular races that were being held in the States just after the war. In only its second outing in the Kendall Trophy race in 1947, pilot Steve Beville recorded the fastest ever closed-course speed with 384.6mph (619km/h). The Galloping Ghost changed hands (and names) several times over the following years, and had a period of not flying from 1990 to 2009. In 2010 it was made ready to compete in the 2011 Reno Races and was to be flown by Jimmy Leeward. Unfortunately during the race, the aircraft suffered a catastrophic elevator failure which led to it crashing and killing its pilot and spectators. This was a truly tragic closing chapter of the history of the full-size "Galloping Ghost", and one we should always remember.


The H-King version of this classic racing Mustang comes "Plug N Fly" which means it has the motor, ESC, and servos pre-installed. The tough EPO foam is finished in the authentic silver color scheme of NX7911 "Galloping Ghost" with racing number 177. Assembly is very easy and straightforward with its one-piece wing and simple slot in horizontal stabilizer (no glue required). Other features are the substantially reinforced fuselage, plywood, and carbon are used to create a stiffened and strengthened fuselage, and motor box. Plastic skid plates are fitted to all the underside contact areas for protection when landing, and you are supplied with the option of both a clear, or a golden canopy to add the finishing touch to your Mustang.


So to summarize, the H-King P-51 "Galloping Ghost" is fast out of the box with the pre-installed motor (optional 'Pro' motor available for even more speed), it has fantastic flying qualities with good fast and slow speed handling, is strong, and quick to assemble. It is a great contender for use at fun, club pylon racing events with the strength and maneuverability to do "Bank and Yank" pylon turns. A great, fun airplane that is brilliant to fly, looks fantastic in the air, and will have you smiling from ear to ear the whole time you are flying it.

Just so so overall. There are better P51s out there.

Jun 07, 2022

It's ok, but I don't love it. There are better P51s out there, and better hand launching racers. They cost a bit more but (IMO) are worth the extra $$. I've one of the FMS P51 racers and that is a far superior plane. Will take the FMS one hands down any day over the HK version. Simple omissions like no battery straps are sorta annoying. Packaging is ok, not the best, though no damage on mine. Paint scheme and markings are blah. It flies well, and I think it flies better slow, but is not really very fast. Not a screaming racer. Not a fan of the $250 threshold for free shipping.
I do like the single screw for mounting the wing (clever) and the large battery compartment. (thanks for that). Real hinges were a good touch. Hand launching takes practice. I found that too much throttle produces too much torque and it will left roll on you.
Not a bad plane, but I would not recommend it.

A little disappointed

Feb 16, 2022

Received my order and was super excited to open the box. Aircraft was packed really well so I don’t know how the compression marks got on the fuse. Unpacked everything and there was no accessory bag with the wing screw and Velcro that’s suppose to come with the model. The foam dowels that hold the stab in place were laying in the bottom of the box. The push rods basically push into the horn hole with nothing to keep it from pulling out. Looking forward to flying the model, reviews are good. Perhaps when you’re getting ready to ship orders check and make sure all parts are in the box, that’s kind of what’s expected when you say everything is included. First order I’ve had any issues with. Could work on getting your shipping costs down.
