    This Mighty Mini Mustang takes you into a whole new realm with its ability to be flown in smaller environments now!  You get all the fun and excitement of a large mustang, but now the convenience of a mini size area for your experience!

    The P-51 is definitely one of the most iconic airplanes of all time and this one sheet foam board airplane kit is a great way to experience the great flight characteristics of this icon. Using 4 channels, and the power of a 2204 size brushless motor which can often be found on mini racing quads, the Mini Mustang has more than enough power for endless vertical climb, and most basic aerobatic maneuvers such as knife edge. With it's wide flight envelope, this little Mustang can fly slow enough to be easily flown at a decent sized park. 

    This includes the airframe only (no electronics).

    1. Such a cool little plane!

      I'm super excited to maiden this little guy in the next few weeks. I built it in the evenings over the last week or two while I've been trying to get better flying 4-channel with my tiny trainer. If you follow along with the build video, this plane is very straightforward to assemble. My only complaint is that the way the new brown-paper foam is cut by the laser results in the foam melting back from the cut line considerably. On the hatch and the turtle deck ribs, this resulted in them being effectively too small to create a nice radius for the poster paper. Instead I got a distinct crease along both sides where the ribs meet the base of the hatch. I tried to pre-bend the paper for nearly 20 minutes before gluing it, but I couldn't seem to avoid the creases. Otherwise, my plane looks nearly perfect. It looks so good I'm nearly gun-shy to fly it! on 12th Mar 2017

    2. Amazing, amazing, amazing!

      I am a beginner/intermediate pilot and this plane is extremely impressive and fun. Its very durable and powerful I've put into plea and many other obstacles and with slight aesthetic repairs, it was up and flying again.it is powerful enough to be a tow airplane or to carry a small FPV set up. Definitely suggest this for a second plane for begginers who want to start to work with a slightly more advanced plane. on 24th Oct 2016

    4. great looking plane and really fun to fly

      i built my mighty mini mustang speedbuild-kit 2 months ago and it was a very nice build. everything worked great and the tight fit of all the electronics and battery was to be expected.
      the maidenflight was perfect, very little trimming and it looks stunning in the air! sadly, i lost the plane in a big cornfield - no locator or beeper, unfortunately. learned my lesson, the next one wont get lost this way.
      i'll certainly build another one and will finish it off with a nice paintjob this time. and not lose it!

    5. Mighty Mustang

      Kit came with the paper peeling. It took 10 days to get the plane replaced have not have a chance to build it for I just received it today on 6th Oct 2016

    6. Great plane, lots of fun, easy to setup!

      This Mini Mustang was my first FT design and I have built it from speed build kit. I used ESC and motor I already had from mini multi-rotor + micro servos + 800mAh 3S 30C battery. Center of gravity was spot on but even if not there is plenty of room to move the battery. During the first flight almost no trimming was needed. Flies like on rails, easy to control not touchy. When Graupner will start selling FT speed build kits in Europe I certainly will by another one.
      The only modifications I will do in my second build of this model is carbon fiber strips in the wing tips. They started to peal off quite quickly right from the stress point where double sided construction ends at the servo install line and goes on as a single layer of foam board till the end of the wing. Also i will reinforce bottom wall under the battery space because after after few hard landings battery started to push the wall out.

    7. Possible improvements.

      I bought this kit about six or seven months ago and just now got around to putting it together. All in all it was enjoyable and looks great but I was highly irritated with the poster board covering that forms the top. It's too rigid!! Mine was rigid to the point that no matter how careful I was or how much I babied it it still creased and wrinkled. When I realized it was going to wrinkle I slowly formed it around a 2" wooden dowel and even that caused it to wrinkle. What Josh uses in the video looked to be much much more pliable than the stuff I got.

      Secondly, the hole in the former that holds on the top cover shouldn't be there. Mine, for whatever reason, didn't line up with the holes on the fuselage of the plane. When I went to put the skewer through it ended up putting a secondary hole in that former pretty much destroying it because there were now two skewer holes in that tiny piece of foam. It would be better if there were no hole so that the builder could make their own with a skewer and assuring everything lines up.

    8. Good overall build

      This plane is a good overall build, but the power pack F doesn't fit into the firewall provided. Other than that it flies great! on 6th Aug 2016
