Out of the gate, the 1941 prototype of the P-51 was impressive. However, trials revealed that the super-sleek machine needed the right tweaks to become a true thoroughbred. The magic formula was realized with the P-51D Mustang because it had the performance, weapons and range to outperform any challenger of the day. After WWII, thousands of the P-51D aircraft remained in service with numerous countries around the globe—some till as late as 1980. The E-flite P-51D Mustang 1.2m model captures the legendary U.S. Army Air Core fighter at its peak when it was with the 334th Fighter Squadron and features the kind of performance, detail and flying quality that’s sure to impress.
Even standing still, the realistic four-blade propeller, outline and cockpit detail highlight the laser-focused attention given to pull off a popular subject like the Mustang. Each scale flap section features the precision of independent servo operation while the retractable main landing gear features reliable electric operation that looks smooth. Construction with Z-Foam™ material keeps the overall weight low and delivers level of airframe durability that’s ideal for everyday flying. But the exclusive feature that makes this definitive aircraft the choice for having a great flying warbird experience is AS3X technology. That’s because the compact Spektrum™AR636A DSMX receiver installed features an AS3X/SAFE system specially tuned to give you rock-solid flight performance similar to the experience you’d have with an expertly set up model many more times its size. Whether you’re an intermediate or advanced pilot, the P-51D Mustang 1.2m will help you enjoy what flying a legendary thoroughbred is all about.
Technology that Makes Flight More Satisfying
The advanced AS3X (Artificial Stabilization – 3-aXis) system built into the Spektrum™ 6-channel AR636A receiver is what helps give this model an incredibly solid look in the air and feel to you at the controls. As a result, your workload to fly smoothly is significantly reduced, making a warbird like this Mustang the best flying experience possible.
The installed main landing gear feature reliable electric retraction with covers over the steel struts and outer gear doors that enhance the scale appearance.
A light wing loading, plus operational flaps, gives this warbird a significantly greater flight envelope with the ability to takeoff in shorter distances and land more slowly.
15-Size Brushless Power System
The power system features a 15-size outrunner with 850Kv and a 40-amp ESC that when combined with your 2200mAh 3S 25C Li-Po battery delivers outstanding thrust.
Construction with durable Z-Foam™ material offers the ability to replicate complex detail with greater accuracy while providing a lightweight airframe that’s easy to maintain.

Eflight p51 D Mustang
Another awesome plane by Horizon. I have now purchased one of the finest planes in my collection. Been flying rc planes 30 some years now and bnf is the best technology ever for rc! This is my first 6 channel plane,programmed the remote per the manual,and the maiden flight was flawless! Buy one and enjoy the experience of a beautiful warbird that fly’s like it’s on rails !! Put in 4 cell 2200 and ya it’s fast too !
This is my first Warbird
This is my first Warbird plane and I can tell you it flies great, it was so easy to assemble and control in the air. Motion RC you guys come through all the time and your customer service is above and beyond what is to be expected from an RC company. I am in the process of putting landing and Nav lights on the plane. I really enjoy this plane. I plan on getting my next Warbird from you guys. Thank you.
So far so good it fly's like a dream.....
Impressive bird! SAFE makes it a nice step up from trainer or UMX
To me, eflite is the great equalizer. While warbirds have traditionally been reserved for only the most experienced pilots, eflite has crafted such an amazing flyer, that anyone with solid 4-channel experience could find a way to fly this, especially with SAFE. I'm sure it still has it's warbird 'tendencies', but keeping up decent speed, there is nothing this bird can't do. The attention to detail on this plane is unbelievable. Everything is done with such high quality, and for me not having a ton of time to make mods and swap out parts, this is exactly what I needed. Flies great right out of the box, no trim needed. I just used the recommended 3s 2200 mah battery, installed everything to manufacturer spec, CG lined up perfectly, and off we went! I will note... This plane is not for beginners. But if you have 4-channel experience to the point you don't even have to think about what you're doing in the air with a smaller/slower plane, this could be a perfect step up for you.
