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.

Scale it is not

Sep 20, 2021

Thought it looked pretty good in pictures, but the huge lower radiator inlet ruins the scale look of the ghost. Overall though a pretty good model.

Prima Flieger

Sep 10, 2021

ich war sofort schockverliebt… er bietet nicht das geschwindigkeitspotenzial einer ef-xtra, auch nicht mit dem tuningmotor. für mich ist das geldschneiderei, das ich diesen motor zusätzlich kaufen mußte!!
trotzdem, sie hat ein tolles flugbild und durch den niedrigen strombedarf des motors kann man mit 2200mah durchaus bis zu 5 min. motorlaufzeit erreichen.
da sich unter der haube ein motorträger aus holz verbirgt, kann man sicherlich noch mit anderen motoren experimentieren…

stunning and fun to fly

Aug 26, 2021

Relatively new to this hobby but this is to me a belter - fast if you want it to be and easy to fly and keep in the sky. Only gripe is the cowl plastic is very thin and needs reinforcing on the base if..like me your belly landings are not always perfect skims.

Flies well, handles good

Aug 15, 2021

P51-GG flies very well, but is not very fast.
It has a lot of drag.
You need help with launce, We launch it with holding it by the airintake under the wing and one hand at the front of the wing.
If you launch as in the manual you have the risk that the canopy comes off.
The spinner is not very well balanced, it creates a lot of vibrations.

Good product

Aug 15, 2021

I received the aircraft within a matter of days which was great and the box was undamaged with all the parts securely taped in place. Paint finish is excellent and the added bonus of two Canopus is a good touch...I went with the gold as it really stands out.
I opted for the more powerful motor upgrade which should make the aircraft go unlimited vertical.
The only drawback would be lack of instructions as it only comes with a small A4 sheet of paper showing the cog and control services throws. May prove a little challenging for those who have no experience in PNP.
Overall a very pleasant looking model, easy to put together and I'm looking forward to flying it soon
