This is one big foam Warbird! Being Plug N Fly it is a fast build model packed with enough features and scale detail to make this one bird you will be proud to own.
Made from EPO foam, this model is practical despite it's size, a one peice removable wing makes for easy transport, even the tail can be un-screwed if desired. The pre-fitted servo's and electric retracts are all pre-labelled making field assembly fast and simple. It uses the kind of 4s packs that are becoming very common now on large foamie's, chances are, you already have a few in your flightbox. The Pre-Fitted motor has plenty of power for those scale Warbird aerobatics or just straffing your flying field!
Scale detail is just superb, as are the pre-applied decals, features include pre-installed electric retracts/tailwheel, there is the very scale 4 bladed prop & spinner, navigation lights, adjustable radiator outlet, drop tanks, moulded exhaust stubs and guns. The flaps keep the landing speed right down, this model has no nasty Warbird tip stall tendencies, it just floats in like a trainer. If you have ever fancied owning a Warbird but were put off by all the stories you have heard about them being "difficult" to fly, this is the model for you!

I bought this over a year ago and only recently had the space to fly it so just finished putting it together. I replaced the retracts and ESC as recomended in the forums and added oleo legs to soften the landings. With a 4000mA 4S lipo I couldnt balance it at the published COG of 110mm then I learned the CORRECT COG is 140mm. Maidened it last weekend and all went well with just a couple of notches of trim. Flys smoothly and easy to land. Tends to nose over when taxiing on grass (even with full up elevator) due to the position of the undercarriage but otherwise a nice looking and scale flying model.Took ownership of this big bird recently and very impressed although haven't flown yet. Fairly easy to assemble, it says 95pcnt of the work is done for you but what they don't say is they have left you the most fiddly bits to finish it off. Connecting the tailwheel to the rudder was no easy task and requires tiny fingers and patience! but nonetheless it is a fantastic looking warbird others have said is relatively easy to fly, just waiting for a nice day to try it!purchased this plane begining jan 2013 found out the esc would not work sent it back to hobbyking they received it on 15th jan it is now the 30th jan still have no esc , borrowed a esc off my friend with hopes of flying this model, only to find the elevator servo would not work at all plus one aileron servo was useless the retracts worked three times then one of them stopped working at all so i have to send all these items back and wait for replacements judging by how long it takes to get things sorted i may be lucky to fly this plane by summer (I DONT THINK SO ) TOTALLY dissgusted i will just put the plane in cupboard and totally forget about it as it is rubbish the customer service leaves much to be desired WILL NOT BE BUYING ANYTHING ELSE OFF HOBBYKING EVER AGAIN AND WILL PASS ON MY EXPERIENCE TO MY FELLOW FLYERS IN MY CLUBgot my 1st flight today and it fly's very smooth it looks well and fly's well no bad points only the grafits could be better, the p51 will fly very slow for scale looking it sounds good as well 1 of my mates has now got one and 2 moor lads at the club are going to order, lipo im useing 4s 5000mh 35c from hk and it's fine, very happy for the price.only 4 crowns for the graffits but the aircraft 10 out of 10.
Huge p51,Havnt flown it yet but looks good. Good support in to wing/tail. Retracts are weak though. Takes a few hours to put together and I recommend hinging all the control surfaces.esc not connected to the engine,that was a bitch..afterwards found engine ran backwards,had to go in again..forget the instructoins,they are useless. still canot figure out the tail wheel connection.got some cable,but here again no instructions..not a good job of putting on decals. .canopy not glued to cockpit.hope to fly it soon..not for a beginnerThe esc had never been conected to the engine.that was a bitch to fix.The instructions are a joke.the plasic canopy was not fastioned to the cockpit.other than that,it is ok.Bonjour , je vais vous commendez un P-51D Shangri La 1600mm EPO w / lectrique se rtracte, Volets, Lights (PNF) (DE Warehouse) si vous voulez bien regard si le manuel du mode d'emploi est bien dedantGreat model, I have put strobes in the gun barrels.
After flying it regularly for 12 months with only one spill.
I've put a sound system in it as it has so much room in that huge fuse.
As a result I'm now upgrading the motor to pull the extra weight.
This model is so versatile & a pleasure to fly.where can i buy a fuselage? also need propeller replacments and nose cone, please let me know where i can buy these replacement parts, even if its not from hobby king
