FMS have really refined the classic P-51 Mustang with their latest 1400mm series edition.

The P51 flies like its on rails and with its new scale propeller and upgraded motor it feels like the supercharger has been given a big boost!

Its available in 3 Stunning colour schemes that look great in the pits and superb in the air. Low flybys and barrel rolls will definitely give you and the spectators a grin from ear to ear as will hitting the flaps and retracts switch as you bring the Mustang in for a graceful landing.

Even more scale detailing adorns the model for a truly awesome looking modeller than any scale builder would be proud of.

Roger Palmer - 16th May 2016

Mine arrived the next day as promised. Easy to build and what a delight to fly! No handling vices yet has a good turn of speed. Rock steady in a fast and low pass, it really inspires confidence. The landings, full flap with a bit of power are an absolute delight and the ground handling is excellent.

Does it have a sound module with two speakers fitted? Thanks Hans

I fancy having this for display only. Do you have seconds, manufacturing rejections that look perfect but don't actually fly at a lower price ? This would look great as a display piece !!!

I'm afraid not, sorry Mark
