Everyone is just starting to recover from the excitement of flying the Ultra-Micro ParkZone Sukhoi and now here comes another new airplane, the Ultra-Micro P-51! The P-51 has a number of things in common with the Sukhoi but it is not designed to be a 3D aerobatic model. It does have a full 4-function radio control system incorporating the DSM2 AR6400 6-channel receiver. ParkZone is offering the new airplane in both an RTF and a BNF version. Both are complete, including everything required to fly the model (except the transmitter in the case of the BNF version). The P-51 is aerobatic in the classic sense but it is designed for intermediate pilots who have had some experience with aileron-equipped airplanes. I think we all should get ready for ultra micro warbird combat down at the school gymnasium.
Matt Andren came by to show us the new P-51 and talk about the features it offers sport-scale warbird flyers. Take a look at our video in which we outline all the interesting points this surprising and brand new model brings to the enthusiasts of the smallest RC models.
