FMS 1700mm (67") P-51D Mustang Ferocious Frankie Receiver Ready (PNP) - FMS041YELLOW
The North American Aviation P-51 Mustang was an American long-range, single-seat fighter and fighter-bomber used during World War II, the Korean War and other conflicts. The Mustang was conceived, designed and built by North American Aviation (NAA) in response to a specification issued directly to NAA by the British Purchasing Commission.
The Mustang was originally designed to use the Allison V-1710 engine, which had limited high-altitude performance. It was first flown operationally by the Royal Air Force (RAF) as a tactical-reconnaissance aircraft and fighter-bomber (Mustang Mk I). The addition of the Rolls-Royce Merlin to the P-51B/C model transformed the Mustang's performance at altitudes above 15,000 ft, matching or bettering that of the Luftwaffe's fighters. The definitive version, the P-51D, was powered by the Packard V-1650-7, a license-built version of the Rolls-Royce Merlin 60 series two-stage two-speed supercharged engine, and armed with six .50 caliber (12.7 mm) M2 Browning machine guns.
The P-51 was also in service with Allied air forces in the North African, Mediterranean and Italian theaters, and saw limited service against the Japanese in the Pacific War. During World War II, Mustang pilots claimed 4,950 enemy aircraft shot down.
Despite the advent of jet fighters, the Mustang remained in service with some air forces until the early 1980s. After World War II and the Korean War, many Mustangs were converted for civilian use, especially air racing, and increasingly, preserved and flown as historic warbird aircraft at airshows.

P51 Mustang 1700 mm
This Mustang is a very nice looking and functioning rendition of a great warbird. The new sequencing gear doors and upgraded motor and props make this bird sing. I have two criticisms on this model. The first and minor one is that the cowl is glued in place, making the exhausts very hard to put in place. The second and most critical complInt is that the pilot and cockpits are from a 1450mm mustang and look rediculous. The pilot looks like a 10 year old and the cockpit floats in the canopy area. This really opens you up to scrutiny when you show up at your field with you nice looking aircraft. Too bad becuse it is a nice version of that warbird.

I love the video you guys did for the plane i gave it a thumbs up good job
I have never had such good Customer service from other other sellers. Most of the sellers want to sell as quick as possible. MOTIONRC is always there with great customer service no matter how many questions is asked of them. Thank you.
When I got the plane it had two bad flap servos.So I replaced the flap,ail. and elev. servos,with good servos $ 200. Then when I got to the time to run the motor the speed controller did not work.So had to buy a good one $ 120. Then found one of the retract door servos didn't work ,I took the doors off ,that fixed that problem.Now if the prop holds up it should fly nice.

Nice looking, but...
Great looking plane, great support from Motionrc. The manual and parts though leave a little to be desired. Use the manual as a guideline if you know what you are doing. Some parts of the manual are just wrong.
Nice airplane but some irritating build issues
Not flown yet, but done building ...... wow what a great looking model! Unlike the nearly flawless build of the recently released P-40B ...... Ferocious Frankie had some issues. 1. The pilot sits way too low in seat ..... looks like a kid driving a Caddy ...... peeled the dome and gave him a booster chair. Now looks like a teenager shoved into a machine and told to go and fight. 2. Battery bay ...... sigh.........in order to get the suggested 5000maH battery to the firewall for proper balance, much butchery of the foam was needed. The velcro strap turned out to be useless and I cut it out and made my own mechanism for securing the battery. (The P-40B tray system spoiled me). I always scratch my head when the recommended battery never fits ....... and it's more often than not, ....crazy....... also had to carve up the canopy foam so that the receiver and CC Pro BEC would fit in there. 3. When tightening screws on anything, I love to feel the end of tightening to know I have a solid connection. With too many FMS planes I've had no indication I went to far anmd the screw head keeps turning forever.....I hate that feeling ...... there is a screw on the bottom for connecting the vertical stabilizer that was exactly like this. Again, this isn't a new issue. 4. Control horn installation was slightly better than 1700mm Corsair. That being said, out of about 40 built planes, the Corsair and Frankie were ate the bottom 2 .... grab a couple beers and a list of your best couple hundred swear words when you get started with horns. 5. There was some slight factory damage of both flaps that was disappointing to see. 6. The cooling air cowl scoop servo was reversed from flaps .... had to replace it with opposite servo for correct operation. Overall, it turned out OK. Upgraded to Pitts KV360 motor and metal clevises on all rods. Should be a stunner in the air...
The plane looks great. I didn't fly it yet had a bad flap servo thay sent a replacement in a couple of days. I will buy more from motion rc
