This is the E-flite P-51D Mustang 280 Bind-N-Fly Basic Electric Airplane. Few fighters can match the history and performance of the North American P-51D Mustang, and the E-flite P-51D Mustang 280 captures the spirit and realism of this classic warbird in a fun, compact Bind-N-Fly package. Manufactured from durable, smoothly-molded foam material, the P-51D Mustang 280 comes out of the box completely painted with detailed markings of George Preddy’s famous “Cripes A’ Mighty 3rd”. The fit and finish of this nimble, electric, 4-channel warbird has been painstakingly engineered, maintaining a true to scale outline to achieve formidable flight performance that can be flown at a small field or park.

The beauty of this E-flite replica is that you can enjoy a great warbird experience in no time at all. All that’s left to do is bolt the wing to the fuselage, connect the included 3S Li-Po battery, bind to your favorite DSM2®/DSMX® compatible transmitter and fly. When you’re done for the day, mount the airplane on the included static display stand and proudly show off the airplane at your home or office.

Excellent plane, very maneuverable, the engine is powerful, allowing you to achieve good speed to perform stunts despite the presence of wind. Appearance is very good and realistic.

I've got over a hundred flights on this P-51... everything still works perfectly.... only broke the APC 6/4 prop once.... had to replace the prop shaft adapter once ($4).... bend it straight a few times (landing it on grass, sometimes the prop catches.... what a phenomenal performer... the most aerodymanic design of all the warbirds... its fast and maneuvers like a dream... as acrobatic as a stunt plane if you want to fly like that... easy to hand launch and can be landed relatively slowly because it's so light.... the wings can handle the G's of any loop or roll... unbelievable... the engine and my 3 batteries are still performing at 100%....
