Default E-Flite P-51 Mustang Parkflyer with Flaps and Retracts

So I recently bought the new E-Flite P-51 Mustang that is their first "Full-House" offering that comes with flaps and retracts.

Here is the maiden flight to share with you how nice it flies:

Nice job GB. What do you think about a 2 blade prop? I often worry about 4 blades hitting the ground

Happy flying may your crashes be limited and if they are not limited let them be cool.

Thank you sir! That shouldn't be an issue as this is not a belly lander, but some folks have tried a 2-blade prop with a little bit more speed. I believe they are using the Extra 300 prop. I personally like it how it is and normally keep my planes stock anyway.

After flying it again today is does feel a bit slow, but it is pretty relaxing to fly all things considered

My take-off was garbage on this flight, but my buddy John and I had a very fun day of flying. I love making video memories lol

Nice flight GB. I keep eying this one at the LHS and the new corsair. So many planes so little time.

Nice plane. Nice flying.

I had the little Gunfighters p51 and souped it up with a power up 15 .Was a screamer. Also have the big FMS 1450mm P51D

Now for 200.00 I have the Reno racer version from Roc Hobby(FMS)Mine is the Voodoo. 90-100 mph WTS has the Strega P51. They have a super corsair in the series. They come with flaps and retracts. If you want more speed, take a look.

I love the old Gunfighrer as well. I bought it off a friend for 30 bucks, best 30 dollars I ever spent. I too also have the FMS version and it is quickly becoming one of my favorites

Thank you That sounds like a lot of fun! I think once I have had this plane for a while I might add some more HP, but for now, I really like how it does what it does.

That sounds like a great deal to me! lol

This is some scale footage taken the other day crusing through the sky. This plane is exactly what RC Planes should be
