Nice looking plane, but won't win any races

I have about 10 flights on the FMS P-51B 57" Snoot's Sniper. The plane looks terrific, and I've received many compliments at the flying field. It's very unique, with it being the silver -B model with the Malcolm hood. Haven't seen another one like this. Everything functions well, and it was a pretty straight-forward build. I'm a little disappointed with the performance of the plane, though. I'm not looking for a screaming rocket plane, but for such a large plane flying on 4-cell power, I would have expected a little better performance. I would classify this plane as "slow". Other guys with smaller 4 cell planes are blowing my doors off. Build: Everything was as it should be, and the instructions were plain and simple. One very nice thing about this kit is all of the hardware were in their own bags and labeled. That made assembly very simple. It also provided extra hardware, so that's very cool. The wing, horizontal and vertical stabs went together with no problems. They easily screwed in to the fuse. The wing went together easily with no problem, and the wires and spars fit snuggly. There is some gluing (exhaust stacks, wing guns, antennae mast and wing/fuse joints). The provided glue worked well. The prop and spinner go together with screws and look great. The space in the fuselage is pretty tight. There are a lot of wires in there, and once the receiver, battery, and wires are where they have to be, the canopy is a tight fit, as the cockpit presses everything down. It's a tight fit to find a good place for the receiver. Be sure the wires are tucked down as low as they can go, so you're not binding anything. Mechanical: Retracts and servos work well. Very nice that this plane has scale retracts and gear doors on all three landing gear. The sequenced gear doors are nice, and the gear retracts and extends nice and slow (scale looking). The tail wheel looks a little cheap, but the main gear is nice looking. The main gear are toeing to the left, so I need to figure out how to adjust that. It makes the plane "crab" on the taxi strip to go straight. I'm flying a 4S 3000 battery, and it fits perfectly. There is room for a larger battery, if you're so inclined. I'm getting about 5 minutes of high power flight, with some juice to spare. Also, the foam seems pretty soft to me. I made some dents in it justing holding it. It seems a lot softer than other brands of RC planes. Flying: The plane comes off the ground very easily without flaps. In fact, I almost have to try to keep it on the ground a little longer to get a scale takeoff, so it doesn't just hop into the air. It needed A LOT of aileron trim and quite a bit of nose down trim. But, once trimmed out, it flies very straight and stable. The flaps aren't needed for landing, either. In fact, it lands much more easily without the flaps. The flaps just tend to make it float. Ground handling has been tricky. It wants to "squirrel" all over the taxiway and runway. You need to taxi it slowly and get the tail wheel off the ground as soon as you can when taking off, then fly it straight with the rudder until you get airborne. As mentioned, I'm not one to complain about a plane's speed, but this plane seems slow to me. I have a few of the 1200mm E-Flite planes, and I would estimate that this plane is slower than those. There was an insert in the manual that warned not use a 5S or bigger battery, so I guess that's all you'll get from this plane, unless you upgrade the power system (I may do that). It flies nice and smooth, but the plane is very light, even with the battery, so it feels like it tends to "float" in turns. Loops take a lot of work to keep straight, but it rolls well and is stable in level flight. Overall, if your goal is to get a nice looking plane that's unique, big and has all of the features at a reasonable price, this is a good plane to purchase. The scheme, paint and decals are very nice, and the -B model with the Malcolm hood is very unique. But, it won't win any speed records, unless you do some upgrading. Enjoy!
