The North American P-51 Mustang was, without a doubt, one of the most famous World War II P-51 fighter aircraft. As a symbol of Allied air power, this single seater aircraft was fitted with the legendary Merlin engine- giving it unmatched range and airspeed. Protecting bombers on extended missions, these aircraft were a welcomed sight for the bomber crews.
Arrows has faithfully replicated the P-51- from riveted panels, machine guns, engine exhaust pipes and retractable landing gear. Arrows also spent great engineering effort with the airframe, the glue-less construction makes getting the aircraft ready for flight an extremely simple process, while the 40A ESC, 3536 850kV power system gives the P-51 incredible performance. Ready for any scale maneuvers, the Arrows P51 is your key to becoming the ace at your field!
This is a beautifully done P-51D Mustang that flies as well as it looks. It was designed around a 2200 3S battery that fits perfectly in the nose of the plane and balances out perfectly with the battery slid all the way in. When you put the canopy down it will actually secure the battery from possibly sliding back and throwing off your CG of while in flight. A 4S battery won’t fit unless you want to remove a fair bit of foam, which I may very well look at doing. As with other Arrows’ RC planes, it is very well built and easy to put together. I liked the detail and the quality of the craftsmanship that went into this plane, as with the other Arrows' RC planes that I have. Even the drop tanks are detailed out! I experienced no unusual fight tendencies and was quite impressed with its slow speed characteristics with the flaps dropped. I do wish it had a bit more power, as I found its speed adequate, but not impressive, as I was running a 2200 3S 80C battery in it. Nonetheless, a beautiful plane to do flybys with and is basically just as good looking on the ground as it is in the air. Arrows makes great quality flying planes for the money and this is my third Arrows in my fleet of 55+ planes. They’re just plane fun!
Hooked it up with the AR630 AS3X/SAFE 6 channel. Flys great! If you go with this receiver, you will need to have forward programming for all the bennies. It flys very smooth once you get used to it. It is touchy without the internal help.. All in all, very cool plane!
This is a beautiful rendition of a classic P-51D Mustang. The detail is wonderful, along with the paint and preinstalled decals. I have over 55 foamy RC planes in my hanger and not one of them is of better quality than the Arrows (I also have their Bigfoot and Viper). Even if you didn’t fly Detroit Miss, it would make a great display aircraft! It’s just a gorgeous looking plane! Very easy to put together and all parts went together very solidly. It is designed specifically to accommodate a 2200 3S battery and balances out perfectly with this battery slipped all the way forward. The plane flies very nicely and exhibited no adverse flight characteristics. I installed an Admiral gyro receiver in mine and it flew great. Just a very solid aircraft in construction, build, and in the air. I personally thought it could us a bit more power than what a 2200 3S can provide. Would love to run it on a 4S, but there just isn’t enough room to fit a 4S in the battery compartment (I tried). Nonetheless, a beautiful RC aircraft to add to your collection!
Very detailed, Almost as much a pleasure to fly as it is to look at. It was a little quirky at takeoff,but that was probably me getting used to a new transmitter. Great investment!
Waiting to hear back from Hobby Zone to see if they will take care of me on this defective plane, will update review after I hear from them.
Hobbyzone: We sent a return label to swap the plane out.
