The Master Series Mustang is a classic warbird that provides as much satisfaction in building as it does flying it! Utilizing Master Series build techniques and designed by John Overstreet, the build experience for this aircraft is absolutely remarkable. The FT Master Series Mustang is a very scale representation of one of the most iconic warbirds. The kit comes with two different canopy options so you can build it as the D model with a bubble canopy or a B model with a razorback canopy. The Mustang is capable of standard aerobatics and high energy flight that any experienced 4 channel pilot would enjoy. 

This aircraft uses the Flite Test Power Pack C with a traditional 4 channel setup and has a wide performance envelope that intermediate and advanced pilots will love!  This is a fantastic next chapter for anyone looking to advance from our classic Mustang kits to a more scale and sophisticated design!

Best Master Series Plane Yet!!!

My son and I have built numerous of the Master Series Planes: first, the Corsair, then the Razorback, the Spitfire, and the P-38, and now the Mustang. All planes fly incredibly well due, in part, to the fact that they are much lighter than foam planes of the same size. However, the Mustang is definitely our favorite. It is a true pleasure to build and flies exceptionally well. Just the battery hatch alone is such a smart design (you nailed it, John). Here's a flight video I took with my 10-year old son "on the sticks":

We use the Flite Test C Pack and a 4S 2200 mAh battery. We love the plane so much that we have already begun to build a second one. The Razorback is a close second; we also have another one of these on the way. The Corsair is probably the easiest to fly given its big wings and short fuselage, but it's definitely less speedy. The P-38 is in a category of its own; very easy hand launches, probably the best looking plane in the sky, but a little "too lame" for my son... Long story short, the Master Series is simply amazing.

I understand that this review is suspiciously positive. Therefore, I want to stress that I have no affiliation with Flite Test, paid full price for all the kits mentioned in this review, and was never approached by anyone from Flite Test or AMain Hobbies to write this review.

Have to say...it is amazing to create such a realistic looking place out of simple foam-core! And its crazy light weight and well powered with the recommended power pack. Please follow the directions with regards to aligning the centerlines and as a double check measure the wing tips to the centerline when doing the final gluing the wings to the fuselage, to make sure its all balanced and aligned on left and right sides. That would be good info on the video! Thanks for an amazing plane...and such great fun to fly! Cheers!

Awesome airplane to build, from start to finish it was great. Mr. Overstreets way of explaining things it right on and precise. If I can build this with no glue all over the place anyone can.

The flying experience was awesome, I wish it some how came with landing gear but this is fine by me the way it is. I only have about 5 months stick time total so I'm a newbie and not very competent at flying like Josh and the others fly but I do ok. This is a very nice flying park plane

I chose to make the "B" model as I have always liked the look of the early Mustangs. It went together pretty good for my first foam board model. I painted it in a British desert camo scheme. I will post a picture in the forum when I finally get the decals I ordered ( or maybe I will just paint them on). I thought the finished model looked pretty good, but it is huge compared to the Corsair which I build next. I think the Corsair will fly great, I hope the Mustang is as good, it is really big.I like the build techniques of both the Mustang and the Corsair, but between them I think the Corsair is a more difficult build.

Nice plane. Pay attention to fitment. Some cuts instructed in video weren't needed on my build and I had to glue it back on. Had a cervo that wasn't centered and I had to cut back into the intake to get to that cervo. My fault for not making sure before I closed up and completed the build. Battery compartment is a pita but the plane is beautiful and flies so scale. 4s battery doesn't fly as fast as I thought but this plane is so fun and smooth.
