This is the maiden flight of my new E-Flite P-51 Mustang BNF Basic WWII Warbird RC Plane with AS3X Technology. I have a complete unboxing and review with the maiden coming as well, but simply could not wait to share this video footage with you all.
This is my first park flyer sized P-51 in this E-Flite Mustang and it is the first plane I have every owned that comes complete with flaps and retracts, which was a bit intimidating to say the least.
The video is packed full of scale low passes much like I have tried to do with my Parkzone P-51 Mustang RC Plane videos along with some loops and rolls. This plane much like my Parkzone Ultra Micro P-51, is nicely detailed overall and looks so scale in the air! Not only that, the AS3X technology make it very stable in the air even in fairly swirly wind! That helps keep you from crashing your plane and we all know none of us like to crash our planes….at least those of us that are sane.
This updated E-flite Parkflyer version of the P-51D Mustang is so much fun to fly that I am happy to show you how this WW2 RC airplane flies! Horizon Hobby and E-flite did an amazing job with this RC plane. I am still in awe of how well it flies and how good it looks. It was modeled after the “Dallas Doll” North American P-51 Mustang and this one certainly looks the part.
For those of you who are curious as to what remote control or radio I used for this flight. It is my new DX6. It makes flying my newest World War Two P-51 a breeze. The radio set-up was super easy using the owners manual too.
If you are on the fence about buying this like I was, jump off and get your piece of World War II history today.
In addition, here is what Horizon Hobby has to say about this plane:
“The North American P-51D Mustang used during WWII was a game changer. Its abilities gave pilots a formidable advantage and the inspiration to go beyond mission objectives in addition to fulfilling their “Ace” potential. The new E-flite® P-51D Mustang is an electric-powered model that brings the ultimate warbird experience to your local park. Electric retracts and functional flaps are already installed so you can experience a well-equipped warbird right away. Every angle of the airframe is saturated with extensive detail that’s built upon the most accurate outline possible. Lightweight Z-Foam™ construction is combined with composite reinforcement so that flight performance is as forgiving as it is thrilling. Besides its authentic color scheme, the bounty of features included on this Mustang allow this thoroughbred outrun all others. That’s because every feature has been hand-selected by Horizon Hobby experts whose ultimate priority is to deliver a great flying warbird.”
