    Great Planes P-51 Mustang Sport Scale

    What do you guys think of this plane....it looks like a sport type plane with out a lot of scale details....maybe a new 'knockaround' plane?

    RE: Great Planes P-51 Mustang Sport Scale

    Your assessment is basically correct. It is a sport plane dressed like a P51. Has enough scale realism to tell what it is but not enough to make it a "warbird". I had one a couple of years ago with an OS 61FX. It flew great.

    RE: Great Planes P-51 Mustang Sport Scale

    They are great planes. They use the Ultra Sport wing design and they are a good flying plane. Looks like a Mustang from a distance, but not alot of detail as it comes out of the box. You can't miss. Good Luck, Dave
    If the screw ain\'t loose then things ain\'t normal.

    RE: Great Planes P-51 Mustang Sport Scale

    I built one about 20 years ago when they first came out and still have it in flying shape today. I enjoyed the build and it is a great flying plane. It flys like my Ultra Sport 40. They have the same wing design.

    RE: Great Planes P-51 Mustang Sport Scale

    Just about done with mine....terrible covering - keep wrinkling and when heated just makes a big bubble of hot air....it takes many pin *****s to get all the air out. Plane balanced right on the money w/ OS.46AX! Hope to test fly this weekend.

    RE: Great Planes P-51 Mustang Sport Scale

    Two successful test flights on the 'Tang today....used both high and low rates - and low rates are just fine A bit rough on take-off until you get the tail wheel off (it is very touchy). Very stable flying bird!

    RE: Great Planes P-51 Mustang Sport Scale

    Besides scale looks, I know that the Hangar 9 P-51 Mustang 40 Sport is designed to fly somewhat like a "sport" airplane but does it have more "warbird" qualities, if any, from the Great Planes Sport Mustang or are the two Mustangs basically the same ?
    Do they both share that Mustang look from the outside but are just a sport airplane on the inside ?

    RE: Great Planes P-51 Mustang Sport Scale

    The H9 is a bit more scale (especially the nose area) than the GP as you can see from the two pictures above.

    RE: Great Planes P-51 Mustang Sport Scale

    Besides the scale looks, I'm wondering if the H9 40 Mustang handles more like a "warbird" or has that "warbird" feel from the GP 40 Mustang? Or is the H9 40 Mustang another sport airplane in the P-51 disguise like that of the GP model?

    RE: Great Planes P-51 Mustang Sport Scale

    I personally feel the H9 flys like a Mustang should, but perhaps it is the fact that the gear is up and I can push 104 MPH with it. It handles some maneuvers like a sport model (like spins) and on low rates can do some excellent victory rolls (very warbird like). The GP 'Tang on the other hand, has a smaller engine, and flies rock solid also - but watch spins - mine will take 2-3 full rotations to stop spinning - very full scale like!

    Perhaps it is in the hands of the pilot, but the pluses of the H9 outscore the GP by a little in the flying department. In static both are stand - off or WAY-OFF if you are a scale fan.

    Landings go to the H9 due to slower smooth landing attributes (flaps while not needed, are the way to go!).

    RE: Great Planes P-51 Mustang Sport Scale

    Hello tailskid

    I wonder if not given you any problems with the engine reversed, I have an asp. S52aII mounted on mine and after the first flight to the air, not if the engine is not really the position.

    any help would be appreciated

    Greetings.

    Many of my planes have inverted engines and have not given me any problems. Really a mustang should have the engine inverted!
