The Parkzone Ultra Micro P-51D is based on a Realistic 334th Fighter
Squadron trim scheme with 4-bladed prop running off a 8.5mm brushed motor. It
uses a DSM2/DSMX receiver with Artificial Stabilization 3 aXis (AS3X, giving you
smooth flight performance and yet full control authority over your plane.
Wingspan: 16.2 in.
Overall Length: 14.1 in
Flying Weight: 1.5 oz (43 g)
CG: 1.38 in (35mm) behind the leading edge at wing root
Recommended Battery: 3.7Votes 1S 150-180 milliampere hour LiPo
Feature: The AS3X turns on when throttle is raised and handles
turbulence, moderate winds well, allowing you to perform aerobatics
DM Flight Log Settings: Added RUD DR0 - safety throttle cut, value -110
Added ELE 70%, 100%, EXPO 15% (Elev D/R, flip switch for loop)
AIL Scale Page 1 65%, Page 2 100%, EXPO 15% (Aile D/R, flip switch for dive rolls)
MIX THR -> ELE, 3 point curve 0,-8,-16 to pitch up a little on full THR for
hand launch or gears
Take-off normal, switch ELEV DR 1 to loop, switch AILE DR1 to Roll
We love how this plane flies, how it performs the loops and
aileron rolls, the
way a P-51 will do. Once airborne, it is very easy to fly even with gusty
wind conditions. With a 150 mAh battery, we were able to stay in the air
with just over half throttle.
History: The P-51 Mustang was an American long-range, single-seat
fighter-bomber used during World War II, the Korean War and other conflicts. It
was first flown operationally by the Royal Air Force as a
tactical-reconnaissance aircraft and fighter-bomber. The definitive version, the
P-51D, was powered by the Packard Rolls-Royce Merlin 60 series two-stage
two-speed supercharged engine, and armed with six .50 caliber M2 Browning

Pros: Easy to repair foam
(buy some Gorilla Glue), flies easily and really well, flyable at small parks.
Cons: Brush motors, foam creases easily (need to put a
layer of packing tape on the horizon stabilizer, wing tips, rudder before you
