Default Mini P-51D from Horizon/Parkzone

Check it out, now for something to dogfight with.

I just wish it was a razorback version.

SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been waiting on this. Thanks for listening HH.

Now just make it in a BNF version so I don't have to buy another stupid radio

Edit: Never mind, I had a senior moment. They do have it in a BNF WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

This time, I will wait till my lhs has one in stock and patronize them.

I am so going to be on this band wagon. Just hope it is in stock before the snow flies. (It looks like it will land in snow)

x2

Now I can buy one of these instead of a second Sukhoi and not feel bad about having two of the same plane. Between being rusty at 4-channel and having a little trouble trimming it out I've dinged it up pretty bad. I'm assuming this will fly similarly to the Sukhoi. Too cool.

From the looks of the vid, it is more powerful than the Sukhoi.

Much easier to fly than the Sukhoi. That's why we're doing an RTF version with the Vapor transmitter.

Sweet. I can't wait to get one.
And kudos on making it a 4 channel. Very smart indeed

Hey David,

Is Parkzone going to bring the Minium Christen Eagle over the pond someday? It would be a sweet plane and hopefully more affordable if sold by Parkzone. Thanks in advance for the P-51.

Looks like I'll have to order now. Does it come without the transmitter like the Sukhoi? Thanks Ron

You can get it for $99 BNF or $129 RTF
I will be getting the BNF of course

I felt bad last time when I ordered mine, because right after I got it, I went to the local hobby show to get some carbon fiber rod for another project and they had them and I could have gotten it with out paying for shipping.
I will make sure I ask them to hold one for me though.

Sorry, no. Our relationship with Kyosho ended quite a while ago.

David,
But you could do a similar bi-plane, right?

I would also like to thank you for being present on these forums.

David,

Since I have several PZ airplanes, I have as many chargers - but I only need one or two. In that regard, what's the chance of your offering the airplane sans charger (for your loyal, repeat customers)?

It would only take about $5.00 off the price and the LHS would not go for it.

Gene, between the Cessnas and now the new line I have or had at least 5 chargers. I gutted 2 to get the battery block and made adapters for my accucel-6 and triton jr.

Thinking about it, I have been a fairly solid supporter of these products.

Gerald, the only things that are really selling at my LHS are these little planes and the MCX. I told the manager about the P-51 today and he got as excited as he was able to. H feigures he can move them. I may have to have him order me one.

I will have my LHS order me one as well. But then again, everytime I ask them to order me a new plane that is coming out, they just say, their corp office will send them when they come in. It is Hobby Works.

Just keep in mind that not everyone that flies a PZ plane will want the MCX. So the chargers really need to come with it.
But just for argument, what about Going green? I'm just as mad at Traxxas for not offering the new Brushless micro E-Revo as an ARR, That's all I need is another radio sitting on my shelf and on RCU ads

My LHS is a branch of the LHS in Redding ca, ie small. I ask, they order, we wait. Being out on the edge of the world has it's problems.

Sorry, I don't at all understand how you came to those two conclusions....

because, when it is offered as part of a kit it takes on a lesser value. Maybe $10 less if your lucky, but the biggest issue is that the LHS will not buy it

I don't really care if it only brings the price down by a few dollars, I feel the same way about having another charger. I'll probably go buy there 4 port charger at some point, and then start hucking all the single cell chargers that I'm accumulating, or maybe save 1 for traveling.... A version with nothing but the plane and the battery would be great in my mind.

Another thing that I'd like to see, is a pin connector on the two linear servos on the board, so if they fry you could easily replace them. Those boards are way to small to solder on, and if one 10 dollar linear servo goes, you pretty much have a ruined board, unless your have incredible soldering skills, or perhaps if your clever you can strip the existing wires coming off the board, and tie new ones in. Nevertheless, it would deffiently in my mind make the product have less throw away parts. Probably another pipe dream! Anyhow, can't wait to add this bird to my collection

I have a paper airplane P-51 sheet that I may resize to the PZ Mustang, and make a simple razorback add on for grins....

What would blow my mind is if they would put combat modules in them.
