  1. Strega rocks.

    Posted by Bob Reed on 12th Dec 2014

    This plane is the best. Easy to fly, stable, looks awesome flying by. easy to land, and exciting when you go full throtle. Look foreward to getting the Voodoo plane next year. For the price I paid ,I think it would be hard to beat.


  2. To much fun to race with the club memebers

    Posted by Jon on 4th Dec 2014

    Several of us in the club have the variations of the series, VooDoo, Strega, Corsair, and Critical Mass. we race them and have a ton of fun! I have Strega, it is a blast, flies really really good, lands slow with full flaps. Wheel landings are AWESOME! GREAT out of the box, and fast!


  3. Best plane in its class

    Posted by djdarryl on 4th Nov 2014

    I love this plane the power and size is perfect , I thought I would have trouble landing because it's solid and low wingspan , but it lands better than my 1400mm fms Pete 2nd . I would recommend this to any advance pilot who thinks foamy have no power and are not stable . You be the judge . Thank you motion rc your service is # 1 so far above the rest of hobby shops I also buy from . Djdarryl.


  4. Fast and Fun

    Posted by Skip on 21st Oct 2014

    My Strega Mustang clocked at 102mph at 4600' at about 65 degrees with low dew point and humidity on Sunday 10-19-14. Wing is glued on and bolted....No issues...flawless


  5. Awesome Plane!!

    Posted by Jameson Clark on 13th Oct 2014

    This thing flies great! The upgrade to a 2 blade 11x12 is a MUST! Clocked mine at 89 mph on the 4 blade and 109 mph on the 2 blade. Extremely stable flight, only slight downfall is landings are tougher than most warbirds I've flown. Other than that, couldn't ask for a better sport plane!


  6. FMS's Strega flies great

    Posted by Steve on 10th Oct 2014

    Nice wide speed envelope. It will keep up with glow powered 46 sized war birds, yet slow down and fly slow at low power settings without a violent tip stall. I still can't believe that the performance is this high with a 4 bladed prop.

    The 2500 mah 4C Admirals that Motion RC sells are great. I get about 6 minutes per flight with about 45% capacity remaining in the battery at the end of the flight.

    Greasing the landing is a little tricky, as it is with all of the P51's I've ever flown. The full scale P51 also has a real narrow speed range over the fence prior to landing. A little too fast and you will bounce down the runway (hard on the landing gear), a little to slow and you stall usually on the right main gear. Wheel landing tail up is best with almost all tail dragger war birds. Rolls are axial and the air frame is stable in every axis.

    Excellent flying plane and the Motion RC guys are great guys to buy it from.


  7. Nice Foam plane!

    Posted by Unknown on 26th Aug 2014

    I'm a balsa n plywood fan.. but this one is acceptable. .Right out of the box it flew easily ... except for lots of down elevator trim on first flight..evergthing else was great. Speed is fair with stock setup .maybe 80 mph. Keep to the nose heavy side... and land on the mains.
    Enjoy.. it looks great in the air!


  8. what an awesome plane!!

    Posted by Morey Benton on 7th Aug 2014

    Just got mine yesterday, and it only took a couple of hours to put it all together. Fit and finish is simply superb. Couldn't wait, so i maidened it today, and was surprised at how well behaved it is for such a speedy plane. Fly it slow or fast, its rock solid and stable. SA others have said, it indeed turns like its on rails. I couldn't be happier!!


  9. Great right out of the box

    Posted by clark thom on 4th Aug 2014

    You can just tell when you open the box this plane will be a great build with all the reinforcements and quick easy instructions. i maidened it yesterday and all i can say is wow. Fast smooth it flies like it is on rails. i started with a 2200mah (3.5minutes) then tried the (2)2450mah 4-5minutes and finally tried a 3300mah (5+ min). they all fit very tight but didn't seem to affect the flight dynamics to much. that faint wistle sound is awesome.


  10. great fast flyer

    Posted by john on 22nd Jul 2014

    easy to assemble and balance.....a real blast to fly and easy to land.


  11. Flies just like the real Mustang

    Posted by Tim on 9th Jul 2014

    A lot of bang for the buck. Flaps, retracts, 70 amp esc to run 4s all for $199!

    Caution: takeoff and landing can be a handful just like the full size Mustang.

    Takeoff: if you quickly cob in the power you better be ready to feed in lots of right rudder. If you are slow to do so you may find yourself off to the weeds stage left.

    Landing: don't quit flying it until it arrives at your feet. Carry a little power all the way to touchdown. Then keep the tail up until it drops on its own. If you drop the tail at speed the wing will blank out airflow across the rudder and again you are heading to the weeds.

    Once you master the takeoff and landing techniques you will be rewarded with a excellent flying and great looking plane.

    I have seen the real one many times at Reno and the model looks just like it in the air.


  12. great plane from motion r c

    Posted by fred from florida on 27th Jun 2014

    Had to get second plane after my dumb act of showing 1st off to buddy's, gave everyone a trill with vertical ability and flew into clouds never to be seen again by any bystanders or myself again.
    $200.00 error I will NOT do again.


  13. Strega Air Racer.

    Posted by Robbie Holman on 25th Jun 2014

    I've flown this model enough that I have worn out the first set of wheels. No problems, A lot of plane for the money.


  14. STREGA PRO RENO AIR RACER. AWESOME PLANE

    Posted by fly&drive R/C on facebook on 13th Jun 2014

    The strega is one amazing model, first off the detail is stunning, ease of assembly, retracts were cycled 2 times before first flight and functioned perfectly.
    After the pre-flight, I took it to the field and it quickly became my favorite new plane
    18 flights and zero issues, retracts are STONG and dependable, flight characteristics. Are excellent, fun, fun plane to fly.
    I highly recomend this plane
    Check out the critical mass plane also from roc hobby and motion rc, , yet another outstanding plane
    and I'm fussy
    Happy landings pilots


  15. Best Ever

    Posted by Kevin Ivey on 30th May 2014

    This is a very nice plane!!! Handles great and has a great presence in the air. I am always getting onlookers when I start to taxi this one out!!! And it is FAST!
