About

About the model: This plane by today consider to be limited production model based on real replica World War 2 based P-51D Mustang the 'Ferocious Frankie' which today exist as airshow plane. Its made from EPO foam molded material which looks nicely detailed all over both fuselage and wings. Ideally a park flyer plane which flew great in the park and also at big club airfield. Among all my warbirds collection this model is my favorite go to scale plane to fly and show-off in the public due to its beautiful presence in the air. Overall its nicely priced within the budget and uses generic size 3s 2200mah li-po battery used on many of my models. However not an easy plane to fly even at Intermediate level but once you get hang of its its awesome plane to fly. Looks good in the hangar too as it turned lots of heads due to its 'scale' looks.
