The most successful fighter of WWII, the P-51D Mustang still thrills thousands today in air shows and air races around the world. Now anyone with a DSM2™ aircraft system can experience Mustang thrills on a smaller scale with this fully-aerobatic, brushless-powered Bind-N-Fly™ reproduction from ParkZone. And getting it airborne is about as simple as it gets. Just attach the wing and tail, charge the battery, bind the receiver to your full range DSM2 transmitter and you’re flying.
Victory rolls, Cuban-8s, Immelmans—ParkZone’s P-51D can do them all thanks to its powerful 480 brushless outrunner motor and semi-symmetrical airfoil. The paint scheme and decals are an authentic reproduction of the actual markings from “Gun Fighter,” a P-51D that regularly flies in airshows around the country. You even have the option of adding a 4th rudder channel for extra maneuverability (requires an additional servo, sold separately).
The P-51 is the first plane I bought. Lots of people told me to get the Cub to learn on. No thanks. I wanted something with some juice, and after reading many reviews about this plane (even the ones that said "not for rookies") I went to my local hobby store and bought one.
I logged about 15 minutes on the stores simulator before buying it.
Knowing nothing about these planes or any RC plane for that matter I got it home, out of the box, and put together easier that a piece of furniture from Ikea. The instructions were very easy to follow, and as I bought the RTF version it came already bound.
Now for the fun part! I got it out to the field, plugged everything in and set her up. I trimmed it by eye, throttle foreword, and tossed her into the sky!
For someone that has never flown an RC plane before I found it really easy to fly. In no time I was doing flips and rolls until I got too cocky and crashed it, but that was after a couple safe landings. Eventually I crashed it beyond the point of repair (again cockiness on my part) and purchased a new fuselage. Oh, parts are easy to get for this plane too! The new fuselage is on and I have had over 25 successful flights with this plane! I love it and am going to buy another warbird soon!
This is a fun little "grab-n-go" flyer and always is present regardless of which other plane I take to the field. Its power to weight ratio combined with its agility makes this plane a solid performer. Even my veteran flying friends were impressed with its performance. I'm getting 6 minute flights on the stock 1350mAh battery and 8 minutes using 1800mAh batteries. I haven't installed the supplied rudder linkage as this plane tracks plenty straight. The other big plus (for me) is that it is a belly lander, so no restrictions as to which field I choose to fly at.
Maiden flight of my P51 went as advertised, smooth, on rails, plenty of power, very pleased. I've very limited experience with ailerons (I have a Super Cub and the Parkzone Folke Wolf 190) but I found this easy to fly. Really stoked now with purchasing other Parkzone planes since my experience with these planes have been positive.
My very first plane out of 10 in my fleet now. I fly it fast and hard every time! Still love every flight. I've upgraded mine with a small tail wheel and Trojan landing gear in the wing. This plane makes a awesome realistic sound when in a top speed dive! Awesome!
I started flying around August of last year (though I had a little stick time on the horrible brushed J-3 cub that was one of Parkzone's first releases), and started off with the UM F4U, moved to the larger PKZ F4U, and then bought the P-51 after I decided I couldn't resist it any longer. Great plane!
This plane is superbly built and goes together easily. My first couple flights were rather hesitant and cautious, but I soon started to play around a little more with the P-51. It has lots of power, but not too much (it won't go full vertical, forcing you to "fly the wing, not the engine" sometimes.
The P-51 is well behaved on low rates and does maneuvers very smoothly, but high rates allow this plane to really shine. It will easily do rolls, loops, Immelmans, and a couple of other things I haven't learned the names of yet.
This plane is a ton of fun to do flybys with. I'll bring it in on a low pass at about 5-8 feet off the ground, and go full throttle as it gets close. Nothing like watching a Mustang (even if its a little downsized) scream by.
Overall, I'd wholeheartedly recommend this plane to anyone looking for an affordable warbird that flies amazingly well.
This is in my opinion one of the best of ParkZones planes.
This plane is easy to fly and repair.
It is simply a big bang for the buck.
I own three of these. "Mustangs"
My son and I own several of ParkZones BNF planes which are all good.
The Super Cub, T-28 Trojan and the Mustang are all excellent planes.
The optional rudder on the mustang is a feature that I really like but the plane flies great without making this mod.
The mustang is the easiest plane I have ever had to repair and parts are reasonable.
The looks of a P-51 in the air is hard to beat and pilots of all ages seem to appreciate the classic lines.
Unfortunately, most P-51 models have been somewhat difficult to fly for less experienced pilots? Until now.
The Parkzone P-51BL is a plane anyone with some aileron experience can fly with ease and many pilots with only aileron sim time have been able to fly this beauty with comparative ease. ? like it?rails? similar praise come from pilots everywhere. The plane has absolutely no bad habits.
I've been flying mine for over a year now and couldn't agree more with the consensus that this is one great plane.
The P-51BL comes in 3 versions: The RTF, BNF and airframe only pkg. versions, and amongst those versions, one offers the option most pilots are looking for in this segment. Options like: Take it out and fly, after charging the battery, with the RTF, bind it to a Spektrum DSM 2 Tx with the BNF, or build it ?way? the airframe pkg.
Regardless of which version a pilot may choose, he ends up with an easy plane to assemble, modify and repair.
Want a bit more? While the RTF & BNF versions have plenty to offer out of the box, many pilots add the rudder feature, landing gears, even retracts and flaps, up the ESC to a higher capacity unit and add performance props, and/or a larger motor and battery to increase performance and versatility.
A great feature: Parkzone?ged ?am can be repaired with many different adhesives including; hot glue, epoxy or Gorilla Glue and be back in the air with a minimum of down time.
Parts availability is excellent from Hobbyzone as is the advice and support from Parkzone?tributor
If you?oking for even more input: The RC forum P-51 threads, cover everything from the most basic to the most advanced questions pilots have about this plane.
In the final analysis: If you?oking for a plane that is high on performance and fun, low on cost and maintenance that will also satisfy your appetite for one of the world?atest warbirds, you?st found it in the Parkzone P-51BL.
I own and fly many ParkZone planes. This is my go to plane when the wind is kicking up. I know this plane will handle just about any weather. It flies like it's on rails. Scale looks and great aerobatics for a really good price. Plenty of power, it literally leaps out of your hand. I haven't found a better war bird in this size anywhere. I flew the old one (Ferocious Frankie) and liked it, this one I love.
If you've been considering this plane but haven't pulled the trigger yet, stop hesitating. You won't be disappointed. Assembly is very quick and simple. It looks beautiful on your workbench and in the air, and it flies like a dream. Buy extra batteries. You'll be glad you did.
It's not a hot rod, but it's not a trainer either. She's quick but forgiving and, best of all, durable. Hand launching is as easy as pie. Full throttle, toss, smile, repeat.
Loops, rolls, and likes being inverted for low passes.
Love the foam. Incredibly rigid for the weight and easy to fix.
Buy one. Now. Do it!
I wish it had a little more power and wing load capacity. It can fly well with a few foam repairs. After that, you will want replacement foam. No Wheels! So I added landing gear off a PKZ BF109. It works okay, but I wouldn’t recommend it. I wish I didn’t have to Jerry Rig such a well flying war plane.
This is a nice plane. I've added gear and flaps to mine. It needs to come stock with landing gear.
