It took about a month before i was able to get to fly the bird. The only complaint was the wires were too short. I bought some servo extensions. The bird came to me in record time with no problems. It flew perfect on the first flight with only a couple of kicks of rudder. I will continue to buy birds from them. I wish other airplane companies would use them for a example.
Okay, so I have essentially purchased three of these machines from MotionRC. My crashes (necessitating more purchases) where really through no fault (sort of) of Freewing. It has some real cool features; however, that also leads to trouble. Too much stuff to monkey with! The tail gear assembly - in it's entirety- is junk, this thing is a monster to handle on the ground. The tail wheel steering is loose and unreliable. The main gear doors are also unreliable. Also, baby will ground roll in a heart beat. Once trimmed out and in the air, you would swear it was a real P51. Very nice flying aircraft. Just beware, the servos are cheap, the mess of wiring is a hassle and the gear (all of them) are troublesome. If you mess up the horse shoe shaped metal bracket(s) on the main landing gear (a good design idea by the way), good luck. You cannot buy another one without buying a whole new plane! And I mean the WHOLE plane. They do not come with any other single component(s). As cool as this plane looks, and sometimes handles, I have actually had more fun and far less hassle with the Eflight P51. You plug it in and fly it, again and again. I will be ordering the new Eflight 1.2m from Motionrc as soon as they are out. Motion is the way to go, by the way!
I purchased the Freewing P-51 Mustang last year and I have to say I love this plane. It is absolutely gorgeous in the air and a real looker on the ground too. It is the one plane my significant other has commented on it's good looks. The power system in this version is good but I am jealous of the Old Crow version and the bump in performance it has. Here is a video of my Mustang with stock power I hope can give you an idea of it's scale looks and performance. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3LNDFSoH234
This is an absolutely gorgeous plane to fly. Easing the throttle will result in a very scale-like takeoff. If you are having problems like ken. adjust the tail wheel until it rolls straight, just give it a push and see what needs correcting. Also, use a lower rate, If your high rate is 100% on your rudder, put your mid rate at 80% and lows at 60%, then try them. Personally, I found that 80% on the elevator was perfect for me when controlling my 12ent. Don't blame the plane, your setup needs adjusting Grossman56
I really like my freewing p-51 mustang. She flies great and looks great.i give her four stars to the fact the tail wheel has too much play and it's difficult to keep her straight down the runway. Once I'm in the air she does very well, then when it's time to land I know soon as the tail wheel touches down she's going to pull hard either right or left. Will experiment on how to address this issue. Thanks motion rc you guys rock..!
this airplane is perfect flying in the air and very stable is only thing is retract system you can visit my channel at ( damlongsouk) .
The only thing I have trouble with is retract system even I put the new one in so I guess I have to fly with out gear up but still fun thanks again free wing.
Haven't had a chance to fly it yet, but it's a really cool looking plane and goes together very well. Anxious to get it in the air. Will let you know the results later.
Fly's great, had to come up with a solution for tail gear servo binding when gear is up. Don't plan on grass landing main gear seems to be the weak point, the wing is very thin where the main gear is mounted. First grass landing tore the right main gear out had to replace wing. Flight time a little shorter than advertised.
Go there instead?
