55" Wingspan Freewing P-51D High Performance (HP) Mustang with "Old Crow" WWII Color Scheme - Receiver Ready (PNP) - FW30121P
Colonel Clarence E. "Bud" Anderson is a WWII Triple Ace who flew his famed P-51 Mustang "Old Crow" while assigned to the 357th Fighter Group “Yoxford Boys", 8th Air Force, Leiston Field, United Kingdom. The 357th Fighter Group was credited with downing 609 1/2 enemy aircraft in only 15 months, a pace no other fighter group equaled. Naming his aircraft "Old Crow" for his sharp eyesight, Colonel Anderson was the leading Ace of the 363rd Fighter Squadron with 16.25 victories over 116 missions, and was never shot down. After the War, he led McDonnell Aircraft's flight test facility for 26 years. In July 2008, Colonel Anderson was inducted into the National Aviation Hall of Fame. Colonel Anderson, once called "the best fighter pilot I ever saw" by his friend Brigadier General Chuck Yeager, resides in Auburn, CA where he continues to inspire millions worldwide to this day.
To honor Colonel Anderson, his renowned aircraft, and his Fighter Group’s heroism, Motion RC and Freewing Model have partnered together to create a Special Edition of Freewing’s popular 1400mm P-51D Mustang. With assistance from Colonel Anderson to ensure the "Old Crow" livery’s accuracy, Motion RC is proud to provide this exciting and unique Special Edition. As an additional bonus to set it apart, this Special Edition "Old Crow" also features an upgraded high performance (HP) power system and two bladed propeller which provides nearly unlimited vertical performance and a 25% increase in top speed compared to the Freewing 1400mm P-51D "Iron Ass".

Price, quality, engineering, and delivery were/are excellent!
excellent plane . easy build and good tutorials on line.
I got my P-51 yesterday. The box was delivered ahead of schedule. No damage to the box. The plane took an hour to assemble. Very straight forward. The sequencer was tricky but the tutorials where very helpful. The only on going problem I’m having is the tail wheel sequence. The door opens ok and the wheel retracts fine. The sequencer wants to close on the retract binding up the door. In reverse the wheel wants to retract before the door opens smashing into the closed doors. This might be my error. If anyone has a solution, please post your answer. Right now I have the rear doors off so I don’t damage anything. PROS: excellent fit and finish. Motor runs and transcends very smooth. Plenty of throw on all surfaces making it easy to adjust control surface deflection for proper D/R. Like the lighting and suspension gear. Going to maiden on our long grass field. Two thumbs up Motion RC
I've been very pleased with all seven of the planes I've purchased. I only wish they wer'nt made in China!
P51 mustang vliegt zeer goed. Heeft wel veel lood in de neus nodig voor het juiste zwaarte punt. De kist kwaliteit is wel weer prachtig.
The assembly of this plane is very easy. Watching the video on the wiring helps very much. It may look crazy but once you get everything hooked up it is pretty easy assembly. Plane flies great, plenty of power and lands nice. Haven't tried the 4 blade prop yet but it is next.
If you look closely at the belly picture of this plane, 2 panels of perforated holes are visible on the lower nose and scoop. This model originally had a sound system in it. The speakers were mounted behind the removable perforated plastic panels and they added considerable weight. Now that those speakers are gone helps explain the CG challenge many of us have experienced. I fly mine with a 5S lipo and the 2 bladed prop. It really hustles. I also reinstalled another sound system that I believe is better than the original. The random start and shutdown sequences always turns some heads. I like the sliding canopy, realistic pilot, and wing mounted sway braces. It also has painted Recognition lights that many P-51 models lack. There are better P-51's out there but not for $309.
I love this plane! I’m using a 5S battery to provide adequate nose weight to get CG where it should be. My plane balances about 1” forward of what the manual says. Maiden flight still required 5 clicks of down elevator to get her level @ half throttle. As mentioned in several reviews, this plane is a bit tail heavy when flown on a 4S pack so plan on adding some weight to the nose. My 5S battery weighs 520 grams so use that as a target weight if using a 4S pack by adding enough weight combined with the battery to equal 520 grams. . I am very pleased with the performance of this warbird! The 2-blade performance prop provides an almost realistic sound that is impressive. I’m running ailerons @ 50% & elevator @ 75%. Very easy to perform scale take offs & landings. Be aware, this thing really slows down quickly with full flaps so keep your hand on the throttle just in case! Happy flying!!
