  1. Ferocious Frankie flies famously...

    Posted by Herb, West End Wings Prez., Effort, PA on 12th Oct 2014

    Build took no time at all, everything was complete in the kit as expected. I just maiden-ed it today with 5 flights (off dormant grass even!) in 5-10 mph winds. No bad handling whatsoever. The trick to negotiating grass strips is to give it a little push and keep it rolling during takeoff so it won't flip, then to relax the elevator after it leaves the ground. CG'ed fine with the 2S 1000mah recommended packs and easily flies for 5+min. The prop is plenty tough too. Sadly, there were no 800mm axis fighters to play with but, I'm working on getting some club members to step up...ha ha.
    Thanks for selling a great product at a fair price Motion RC.


  2. FMS - Another well built Warbird

    Posted by Patrick Kelly on 28th May 2014

    Just received my new 800mm Ferocious Frankie on Friday. Motion RC is the best and had it on my door step in California in four days!! This is why I only buy from Motion RC!!!
    I'm a big FMS fan and have a couple of 1400 P51's in my hanger, however I've been flying at a smaller field near my house and wanted a park flyer. The plane arrived as usual, double boxed and no issues from Motion RC. Plane went together really well and fast... Unfortunately, it's been very windy here since Saturday and I haven't been able to maiden her yet. The more it sits on my work table, the more I'm tinkering with the settings!!! It will probably fly itself by the time I get a chance to maiden her.....

    Thanks again Motion RC for your superior service.

    Semper Fi


  3. Very good quality with good looks.

    Posted by Scott R. on 26th Apr 2014

    This is the first foamy I have purchased, it went together with no surprises, I haven't had a chance to fly it yet. Very nice plane for the money. Great customer service as well, MotionRC is happy to help if you have any questions, MotionRC is the best in the business.


  4. Great looking, well built plane.

    Posted by Jeremy Holaday on 15th Jan 2014

    Plane looks great and well constructed. Haven't had a chance to fly it waiting for some C.F. rods, but can't wait. Motionrc was great, packaged nice and really fast free shipping and that means a lot when you see the outrageous shipping prices the other site want to ship a foam plane. Plan on ordering many more planes from them. Thanks


  5. New flyer

    Posted by Mike on 19th Oct 2013

    Ive only been flying planes for a month and a half now, and I baught the 800mm p-51, I fly it all the time and although it's not a starter plane, It flys so well that i can fly inverted all around the field, and do barrel rolls, I do break alot of props because im new at this, but when i break a prop I just snap off the oppisite blade, clean up the stubs and fly it 2 bladed, lol.. works great, so all you guys that break props like me!! all ya have to do is make the broken 4 blade into a 2 blade, and it flys just perfect, saves money that way, besides that, the 2 blades last longer!! great plane though I love it


  6. best ever

    Posted by john a freeman on 9th Oct 2013

    i changed my mind at the last minute and got ferocious frankie (p-51) it is one of the best built airplanes i have ever had no flaws it flies great but i have to point the nose more to the right because when i take off it wants to turn left radically . i had a p-51 from horizon and i put landing gear on it and i had to do the same thing with it ( point more to the right)) and it worked great . i still want to get the corsair though


  7. Great FMS 800 Bird

    Posted by Danny D on 5th Oct 2013

    The build is pretty straight forward. I found the CG to be balancing as tail heavy when at 65mm, but when in the air it was actually a little nose heavy which worked out fine. This is my 3rd plane after the Champ and Parkzone UM T-28 and it was manageable as long as you don't get too crazy on manuevers. Flying it scale is perfect with rolls, loops, circuits, etc...

    Not too fast when using a 2S 1300, 1000, and 850mah lipos. Had to adjust the battery placement to get the CG. Ended up braking two props already but this was my fault due to lack of airspeed when flying and launching. Keep the power about 50% for cruise and 75% for hand launching/tight bank turns.

    Motion RC is an awesome place to shop and the customer support is 5 stars.

    Give them a try!!


  8. Great Plane Great Flyer Great Company

    Posted by Unknown on 13th Sep 2013

    This plane came double baxed and freaky fast , to borrow a line. The plane went together very easily and the finish was really great. I was a little sceptical of a 2 cell plane being very powerful but I had always wanted a P51 Mustang. The price was icing on the cake. This plane has enough power to keep most flyers entertained. Flys very well and is easy to do most aerobatics with. i really can not say any bad things about this plane. I cannot say enough good thing about Motionrc. These guys are the real deal!! I have bought over 11 planes from them and all have arrived in great shape and all parts in the box. And delivery is always super fast. Thanks guys for such a great place to do business.


  9. Love this plane!

    Posted by Dan on 8th Jul 2013

    First off, everything I've heard about Motion RC is pretty much spot on. I sent a question to them via their website, and it got lost in the ether somehow. I then posted the same question at RCGroups on Motions page, and got an immediate reply, along with sincere concern that I didn't get an answer directly from them. Outstanding customer service!

    My flying experience is right at a year, and I'm self taught. After 100's of crashes with a little Parkzone UM Mustang, I finally "go it" and added and an UM Mossy Mosquito and the AS3X Spitfire. From there I moved up to a 650mm 2S brushless Messerschmitt Bf-109 and the same scale Eflight Zero 300. I can fly all of the above all day long and bring them home in one piece. Adding an 800mm warbird was my next logical step up to a bigger plane.

    I'm very pleased with this P-51. I'm flying it with the recommended 1000 maH battery, and get about 5-6 minutes out of them. I tried the CG at 65mm per the manual, and found it a touch tail heavy. Put a half dollar and a penny in the nose (51 cents. Get it?) which moved CG to 60mm, and she flies perfectly now. I have my low rates set at 75% DR, 30% expo for ailerons, 80/25 for elevator, and 80/20 for rudder. I also dialed in a 35% rudder mix to the ailerons.

    This plane tracks very well, and will do nice laps at 50% throttle. I don't understand the comments about it tip stalling, I see no tendency for it to tip stall at all. Of course, you have to feed in up elevator with ailerons, but I have to do that on every plane I own, it's how planes fly. It is a little underpowered, and will barely pull a loop at full throttle. Might do better on high rates, haven't tried yet. It does land hot, you have to stay on the throttle all the way down to the ground, or it'll drop like a brick. Getting a good landing flair is tricky.

    I belly land in short grass, so I removed the gear, but left the drop tanks on for skids. I reinforced the tanks and bottom of the radiator with clear tape, and it works pretty well, no damage at all with 10 flights on it. The prop is tougher than I thought it would be, I bought extras when I got the plane, but am still flying on the one that it came with.

    Fit, finish and detail are nice, but have room for improvement. There are lots of bubbles under the decals, the paint lines are not too crisp, and why is there no dash decal for the scale pilot to look at? Also, the clevis' that come with the plane are super cheap. They are flimsy as can be, and I didn't trust them at all. I have some spares from both the Zero and Bf-109 that I used instead, they are much better quality. The prop is super cool looking, and I love the spinner! It's nice to be able to remove the prop without having to pull off a glued on foam spinner, that all of my other planes have.

    I would definitely recommend this plane. It's certainly not for a beginner, but if you are a warbird fan like I am, it's a sweet plane and the free shipping is a deal closer.


  10. Frankie is tempermental

    Posted by Unknown on 4th Jun 2013

    Stock setup with Motion's recommended battery. I had to get the CG pefectly level before having any success hand launching it. Otherwise she will nose dive or torque roll into the ground immediately. I only take off and land over tall grass because my runway isn't wide or long enough so drop tanks and wheels are removed. If you go anything less than half throttle on turns she will tip stall. Flying at 1/2 to 3/4 throttle is really relaxing. Any faster then I'd recommend dual rates to take a little throw off the ailerons and elevator. All in all this P-51 is very durable and a fun plane to fly. I'd recommend this to anyone who has flown like models or larger warbirds. For sure not for beginners.


  11. Twitchy birdie

    Posted by Daedalus on 5th Apr 2013

    A bit of background: I regularly fly the Parkzone UM Spitfire, Eflite Zero 300, and the Parkzone Corsair. I'm new to the game (four months flying time), so take my comments with that in mind. I balanced the plane as I mentioned in my earlier review, and during the maiden outing, it flew really well. I found that I really had to keep the speed up to keep it in the air - especially on the turns. Through my own stupidity, and cockiness, I ploughed it into the ground on the fourth or fifth flight. Nothing that a little epoxy couldn't fix! She's not so pretty anymore, but I took her out at lunch today, and, while hand launching requires a good, firm throw (otherwise there seemed to be a magic attraction to the ground), she flew and tracked well. I may have overdone the nose weight a bit, as it seemed a little nose heavy. I found the landing at speed quite nerve wracking, but she came home in one piece. Nice plane, and very responsive, but it seems like it could use a little more power to make it more forgiving in the turns.


  12. What a great little plane

    Posted by Sc4dr on 27th Mar 2013

    I've had a chance to fly this pocket sized p-51, on several occasions now. The more I fly it the more I like it! It flies well with or without the gear, but I prefer to belly land fixed gear war birds. With the scale 4 bladed prop, you need to land with the drop tanks on, and strengthening them with epoxy, or ca is almost a must. You might be able to land in tall grass with the gear, and tanks off.

    For those interested in converting to a double blade prop, for safer belly landings. I tested a 7x6 2 blade apc electric prop, using a 3s 1000mah 40c battery, and it was pulling around 24 static amps, which will fall just inside the safe zone during flight. You can trim the nose cone to fit the blade cleaner, but I chose to just tighten the spinner as much as it would go, pinching the larger bladed prop. This method isn't as pretty, but will work.

    Fit, and finish is top notch, like all the other FMS line of planes. The instruction manual is well written in plain english, and all the parts for the model were there, and packed well. This version of the p-51 has always been one of my favorites, and looks great displayed hanging, or just sitting on your desk, or bench. Nice detail!!!

    In the air, it looks and flies like a bigger plane. When slowed down, it gives you the impression of a tip stall in a turn, but holds the line well. This characteristic makes it feel more like the real thing, without it getting scary on you. Power is just right for this platform, and the pitch of the 4 bladed propeller is like no other I have heard. Coming out of a dive, during "strafing runs", the plane can be heard echoing off buildings, trees etc. and almost makes you want to dive for cover!!!

    So once again, the guys at Motion RC have delivered a super fun, pocket sized warbird to my door in less than 3 days. Highly recommend!


  13. Build only

    Posted by Daedalus, on 24th Mar 2013

    MotionRC delivered my plane in record time (thanks folks). It went together very simply and easily. Needed significant nose weight (8 quarters and hot glue) to balance with the recommended batteries. Control surfaces aligned nicely and set up was simple. The prop assembly was tough to open for initial assembly, and when I put it together it tended to rub on the cowl unless I loosened it a hair. The gear plates run on the ground while moving, so they need to be adjusted before use. Not a big deal to me as I will likely be belly landin it. Instructions were clear and laid out well. Nice to have all the critical information that sometimes you have to dig for. Nice looking plane. Too bad it's yellow, as I will have a harder time hiding it from my spouse.....

    I'll update this review after maiden which I hope will be this week.
