Hobby King Mini P-51D Mustang Parkflyer Plug-n-Fly
The HobbyKing Brushless P-51D Mustang comes ready to fly. All you need to include is your own radio, receiver and battery. Everything else is included. This is a mini version of a normal P-51D Mustang, Identical from the features but smaller in size. The P51D comes 99% pre-built and all you need to do is screw in main wing, plug in the battery & RX and you will be ready to fly in no time.
Will this fly with a 2S battery/7.4 volt? Or will I def need 3S? I only have a 2S and it spins up with decent propulsion but dont want to crash first time.
Also what is the little hatch for on the underside? I had the battery in there but thought the CG would be too back?
You can fly on 2s to start It will work then switch to 3s 1000mah you like it even more cg is very important,tail heavy you will crash,nose heavy will fly poorly but will fly.The battery should go under control panel after maybe some foam carving cg is 8 1/2 from tip of spinner .
Esse Aero P-51D ele Sai do chã*o ou pode ser jogado estilo Asa Zagi? Da para usar bateria de 2200 3s 25/ Esc de 50/Motor 2200KV?
Alguem do Brasil Ja comprou Chegou corretamente,pagou multa na alfandega?
AMigo, esse aviã*o deve ser lanç*ado pois mã*o possui trem de pouso, até* aterrissa no solo mas em terrenos macios (areia de praia ou gramado), possui um reforç*o para aguentar estas aterrisagens. Aviã*o muito gostoso de pilotar, rá*pido e á*gil nas manobras. O motor que vem nele está* bem dimensionado, a limitaç*ã*o na capacidade da bateria está* relacionado ao espaç*o onde ela será* instalada e o peso total do modelo para voô*.
Just came back from the maiden.
Flys like a beauty!
However, the supplied ESC cuts out after 2 or 3 minutes of full speed with a 3s1300 25/50c!
if you upgrade to higher Lipos one should consider a better ESC as well!
Actually, if you take the cg from the manual, it does not look right to me!
According to the manual it is just behind the leading edge (aprox. 1,5 cm)
This seems to be not right - can somebody verify this please. I would hate to find out by flying! *-)
Just don't use full throttle all the time and you should be fine. The extra 5C of the battery isn't going to make a big difference. If the ESC is going to fry, it probably will regardless of the C rating of the battery. Better thing to do is find a way to get more cooling airflow to the ESC.
I have a unused main wing, tail wing and 3 canopys I can give away, if you pay postage, but sending from Norway is quite expensive, approx. $ 60.00 I have to pack and weigh it first to get an exact price on postage.
Hi brains trust :) I have just been given this plane as a gift (1st flyer) and upon inspection it has a brushed motor (370)with gear set. Also 10A esc (assuming brushed also) and 2.4ghz tx/rx. Any info on what brushless motor to use as replacement much appreciated! also do the brushless versions still use the same "ge****t" housing that this brushed setup is mounted in? This unit came with 9.6v Ni-Mh 350mah battery so mustve been "old stock" from elsewhere. thanks for any info!
If you still care after 4 www.link
I would go with this motor. Lots of grunt to have fun and get you out of a sticky situation of need be. Prop as said on the motor page (7x4 to 7x6) or something similar. Probably good to get a 20 or even 30 amp brushless esc so it will last long. And last but not least a 3 cell lipo of maybe 1000 to 2200 mah and 20-30c discharge rate. This setup will give you a zippy plane that will pull off some awesome aerobatics and impress the neighbors. If it goes to fast put a smaller prop on and if you want more speed get the 1200kv version and a larger prop.
First off I love this plane. I upgraded my ESC to a 15A and am running the Turnigy 30-40C 3c 1000mah lipo. Balance is perfect and flight times are 6 to 8 minutes long.Very precise and fast flying. This is my first bottom wing plane and it is awesome!! 18 flights and zero crashes. This thing fly's slow just as well as it does fast.
The Canopy has flown off twice. Thought i fixed the issue but it flew off again today and unfortunately I never could find it. Anyone know of a replacement? Was going to see what some local hobby shops would have on hand that would work tomorrow.
LukeDuke this is a common problem. Firstly how does it fly?? Once in the air can you trim roll out?? If so it is no prop change will help. When you launch try running motor to speed before you launch. This will reduce the initial torque. I hope this helps
It's a pity you cant get it working for so many days :(
As far as i remember this plane has the following ESC:
HobbyKing 10A ESC 1A UBEC
Search it on HK, go to the Files tab and get the manual from there. The manual is actually the same for a big range of ESC as they operate basically the same.
Btw, if it didn't not work when you switched wires, try just switching other combinations. As the motor does not really care about their order.
thanks for all your help. i tried all possible wire combos. the manual you mentioned has different tone patterns then mine. so i bought a new one from my local hobby store. its too bad hobby king service is offline. thanks again
hi gleb it was the motor and i have replaced it. hopefully be flying this weekend. thanks for everything.
9 thumbs up!
BEWARE This setup draws 11 amps at full throttle and HK have only installed a 10 amp ESC. In the specs it says 20 amp ESC but it is wrong. Most people use the specs to order their gear and HK is consistently getting it wrong. Shame on you HK
The model itself is absolutely gorgeous. I will be changing the ESC obviously as I dont want a pile of foam after my first flight.

i bought this plane over a year ago. it was different kind of set (it had brushed motor), but the plane was pretty much the same. i must say this is an excelent plane, it is stable, it flyes well and it is fast enough. it is perfect for your fist motor plane. and ow that is upgraded with brushless motor it is eaven better. it is a must buy for all mustang lovers.

the only problem i had was spiner. it is made from foam and after a few flights foam cracked and coused strong vibrations. i would recomend to change the spiner with plactic one.

A great looking mustang. And lets face it, everyone likes the mustang. This little plane is made from EPS and has been around for a while but it still fly's great and is fun to keep in the back of the car for a lunch-time buzz. It's not the strongest little plane but handles belly landings just fine!
