P51D Mustang Radio Controlled

posted in: Builds, Radio Controlled | 0

This is a Cambrian P51D Mustang which is I don’t think is available anymore

I built this several years ago and it was my first proper build, it turned out much better than I expected.   The first flight was very good,  I got one of our clubs more experienced pilots to take it up. It was powered by an Irvine 46 nitro engine and had plenty of powers

Second flight a complete write off.  I tried to take off in poor conditions and stalled it on takeoff with the usual result.  I hadn’t too much experience back then and these days I would have know better.

Anyway, I enjoyed building it and had 2 more after this one but ARTF kits. Sadly no Mustangs in my hanger now.

Below are some pictures of the build.
