PRODUCT OVERVIEW

The P-51D Mustang is world-renowned as quite possibly the most iconic fighter aircraft of all time! Its unique design resulted in it delivering some of the best performance among all fighter aircraft flown in WWII. "Detroit Miss" is a history-making P-51D Mustang that was flown by Urban "Ben" Drew, and in 1944 he became the first USAAF pilot to shoot down two jet-powered Messerschmitt Me 262 fighter aircraft with it. The E-flite UMX P-51D Mustang is an ultra-micro sized model of the famous aircraft that's a warbird version of the popular UMX P-51D Voodoo racer. It's equipped with expertly-tuned AS3X and optional-use SAFE Select technologies, is 2S and 3S battery compatible, and provides real-time battery voltage telemetry to compatible transmitters. Because of its ultra-micro size, the UMX P-51 can be flown in more places and smaller spaces including many yards, parks, and sports fields! The fixed landing gear with a steerable tailwheel makes it easy to taxi, takeoff from, and land on smooth surfaces, or you can leave the landing gear off for more speed and vertical performance with easy hand launches over and landings on grass. It's the most affordable, convenient, and easiest-to-fly replica of a P-51D Mustang yet!

Skill Level 2 - Some Experience Required

Skill Level 2 aircraft, like this one, are suitable for RC pilots who already have some experience and the skills to assemble and/or set up and fly similar class models. And although this is one of the easiest-to-fly P-51 models yet, it's not a suitable first-ever RC aircraft for new pilots or "next step after a trainer" model for low-time RC pilots. You should have the experience and skills necessary to successfully fly higher performance ultra-micro models like the various UMX Timber models, or larger models like the E-flite T-28 Trojan 1.1m, the Commander mPd 1.4m, Timber 1.5m models, or other similar class models before attempting to fly the UMX P-51D Mustang.


Gear Option

You can use the included fixed landing gear - with a steerable tailwheel mounted in the scale location - to taxi, take off from and land on smooth surfaces. Or you can leave the landing gear off for more speed and vertical performance when hand launching over and landing on grass.


Durable Design

Construction with advanced EPS material delivers a lightweight yet durable airframe that's also easily repairable with odorless/foam-safe CA, Foam 2 Foam, epoxy, and other foam-friendly adhesives. In the unfortunate event you damage any airframe parts or components and can't repair them, a full line of replacement/spare parts is readily available.


Fully Assembled

The UMX P-51D Mustang arrives 100% factory-assembled and ready to fly right out of the box! It's equipped with industry-leading Spektrum 2.4GHz technology that binds to your 5+ channel DSMX/DSM2 equipped transmitter so you can be flying within minutes of opening the box.


Exclusive Technology

This UMX P-51D Mustang features exclusive Spektrum AS3X and SAFE Select technologies. AS3X works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence to deliver a locked-in feel that makes it seem like you're flying a much larger airplane.


High Performance

This power system setup delivers similar performance to the original when flown with 2S 280-300mAh batteries (a suitable JST-RCY to JST-PH adapter, including SPMXCA327, may be required), or it's one of the fastest UMX models ever and has unlimited vertical performance when it's flown with 3S 300mAh batteries
