Ultra Micro P-51 RC BNF - Parkzone Airplane Review
The Mustang P-51 is perhaps one of the best known planes to have fought in any war. When jet fighters started to take the place of Mustangs in air battles many were decommissioned and sold to private collectors for non-military uses such as air racing. It is considered to one of the finest fighter aircrafts ever designed and many still fly in air shows today across the country. Being a fan of all things aviation I was pretty excited to get my hands on the Ultra Micro P-51 BNF from Parkzone.
Let me tell you that flying this plane will not disappoint any flying enthusiast. It is extremely acrobatic and can pull off any of the stunts you want to throw at it. You will be only limited by your imagination when you fly this plane. You'll be pulling hard inverted barrel rolls in imaginary dogfights as soon as you charge up the battery for this plane and sync your controller.
Be aware that this plane has been designed for the more advanced RC plane user as the controls won't as forgiving as some beginner RC planes on the market and it won't auto correct itself when you let go of the controls like most of the beginner planes will. What this plane will do is high speed stunts that will keep you on the edge of your seat while you're flying this aerobatic little plane. The great thing about this plane just like other micro planes is that you won't need very much room to fly it in. You'll be set if you have decent sized backyard and if you don't have a decent size backyard then going to any neighbourhood baseball diamond will give you plenty of room to put the Ultra Micro P-51 through its paces.
A word of caution for people that might be moving from a RC beginner plane to a more advanced RC plane is to make sure you start off slowly with this plane. Start with small tricks that are easy to recover from so you will be able to get use to the controls before moving onto harder stunts. With the addition of ailerons to the plane which a lot of beginner planes don't include it makes it a little bit harder to fly but also allows you to pull off all those cool tricks you want. The ailerons will vastly improve the trick capabilities of your RC plane but will also make it that much more complicated to control but allows for a lot more stunts to be performed. Just take it slow so you will be able to get a good handle on the basics of flying pulling out of sharp dives and steep climbs before you start on the barrel rolls and loops or you may see your new purchase smashed into the ground before you have a good chance to master the basics.
This is a great looking plane as it comes with very authentic decals and scale measurements based on actual Mustang P51s known as the "Gun Fighter" airplane which can still be seen flying and performing stunts in air shows across the country. The plane includes a fully proportional throttle, elevator, ailerons and rudder flap to make it possible to do any of the flying stunts you can think of. The steerable tail wheel also makes it easy to navigate this plane around any obstacles on the ground that might be in its way on landings and take offs.
The plane is controlled by the Spektrum 2.4GHz DSM2 AR6400 receiver which comes installed in the plane already and is a 6-channel ultra-micro receiver with built in servos, speed control and Parkzones X-port which allows for future expansions. This plane requires the Spektrum 2.4GHz DSM2 aircraft transmitter which is sold separately.
