Description

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).

Speed Build Mini Mustang

Hello fellow RC fliers and possibly drivers. I'm here as a brand new builder. Seems my prostate cancer has taken out the flying side, so till it removes me mortally I guess I'll build and tune. Although this is my first Fixed wing build, first foam project etc. I've got a 450 TREX and a 500 TREX and several smaller helis which I built and set up as well as my cars. So the RC part I'm very familiar with and now that I am sitting here with a little care and a lot of help from Josh Bixler looking at a P51D Mustang minus the top turtledecks just yet, the lines are amazing considering the material for the airframe. The plane has exceeded my expectations and the only drawback is that being a Canadian, shipping pretty well doubles the cost and the exchange rate doesn't help. Almost 50 Canadian dollars for an 18 dollar plane. Ouch. Other than that minor detail, I'd like to thank Heath for His wonderful packing, and Chad Kapper for having an Idea about RCFLITE. Thanks guys you make the palliative life, an enjoyable one. Kris

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!
