Default New Park Zone P-51D Mustang

Here comes another cool plane from Park Zone. The P-51D Mustang. I know Park Zone planes are not perfect RC models but for the price they are tonnes of fun that you can afford. I just got into RC flying last September and Park Zone is the reason for it. Not sure if I will get in line to purchase a P-51 but it sure looks like a worthwhile plan. Ailerons and elevator control add another flying experience. Cannot wait to see the first review.

Thats actually AWSOME. I think it will be another hit just like the striker. And yes while it may not be perfect the stryker comes pritty darn close so i expect no less in this airplane. Nice find, I will consider adding it to my fleet since for the price its definatly a good deal.

Nice plane. Does it have the pilot like in the pic? My only complaint is it comes with no landing gear, which means you can only land in grass.

Took a look at the other thread on the new P1-D. Those folks are all debating the issues of RTF and 27MHZ transmitters. I got into this hobby late last summer because Park Zone has some non-toy RC aircraft that were affordable alternatives to diving in and trying to piece a plane and radio system together. I have a Slo-V and bought my son a Stryker. Both planes have been in trees and smacked the ground a couple of times. I just ordered the parts to make a Stryker and plan to use my Slo-V TX. It works with the new receiver just fine. So I will have less than $250 into the hobby and own a Slo-v and Stryker. I keep looking at making the jump to a 72 MHz system but just can not justify the added expense.

The P-51 is controlled by ailerons and elevator. Seems like a new challenge. Still looking forward to the first real review and figuring out if my old Slo-V TX will work here. I bet it will.

I too wish there was a landing-gear! Anyway,looks really good...but I think I'll wait a few months for reviews and see what kind of a reaction this beauty gets...it may be cheap...but not free!
