55" Wingspan Freewing P-51D High Performance (HP) Mustang with "Old Crow" WWII Color Scheme - Receiver Ready (PNP) - FW30121P

Old Crow Pilot and WWII Triple Ace Colonel Bud Anderson.

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".

Old Crow P-51 Mustang

This is a very good flying scale model of Bud Andersons' infamous P-51 Fighter, Old Crow. It's may personal favorite. If you want the history of this aircraft, read: To Fly And Fight, by C A (Bud) Anderson. I have a 4 blade scale propeller mostly for display and fly with the two blade.

Old Crow 1st impression

I'm going to rate it 5 stars, have not got it in the air yet. Construction is great, and like everyone said great hinges, great build. I would have had it in the air already, but dirt road landing/launch was a little rough and the gear was popped lose from a big rut in the edge. So far very happy with how it is designed and built. Will get it out this weekend.

Freewing vs. FMS

I have had two FMS 1500 mm P51 (Petie 2nd) and upon totaling my second, thought I would give the ‰ÛÏOld Crow‰Û� a try. Spoke with Wayne from MRC, and went ahead with my purchase. From having both I can say that the fit, finish and detail on the Freewing is much better. The landing gear handles our not so plush field with ease and in flight I believe they are about the same, with one slight exception. I fly with the 4 blade as it is a mustang. The FMS prop assembly or the strength of their blades is inferior to the Freewing. I run a 5s 4000 mh through the FMS and at a level flight, full throttle, the prop shears thru the spinner every time. The Old Crow is still in tact after about a dozen flights. It screams with the 5s setup and is the only way I fly it (after its maiden). The landing lights are a great addition which FMS does not have and the sequencing of the faring doors and linkage assemblies are far superior on the Freewing than on the FMS. If you had a doubt, hopefully this helps. Last thing, Wayne had also pointed out the cost of replacement parts for FMS are much higher than those for the Old Crow, so in the long run, it's also a much better value...

Old Crow Bliss!

I really enjoy this Model. This model of Old Crow does the design justice. This aircraft is very predictable. It tracks well on take off and a 50% throttle setting will get her in the air nicely. Lose the landing gear and open this bad pony up! Very fast cleaned up and she handles slow flight like a champ. The aux. drop tanks change flight characteristics. Maintain some throttle when landing or she will stall. Have fun! Be safe!

A dream

The plane is awesome. I was fortunate to buy early on which included the sound system. I don't know why they decided not to continue it. The plane is fast and with the sound it's just awesome.

Awesome Mustang

This is one fantastic Freewing Old Crow Mustang. The build went together easy with all parts fitting perfectly. I did take a little more time assembling to install the MRRCsound with 2 transducers. This model is configured for a sound system that is no longer included in the kit, but the speaker areas are set up perfectly to add your own sound system. This plane has been a hit at the field with fellow pilots amazed at the looks, sound and the speed. The two blade propeller power upgrade is great and there is a big noticeable increase in power and speed with 2 blade vs the scale 4 blade set up. I tried the 4 blade because I like scale, but went back to 2 blade after one flight. Flies so much better having that extra punch and speed. Everything about this model is top notch- nav lights, bright landing lights, shock absorbing retractable landing gear, sequenced gear doors including tail wheel. This is a great plane and I highly recommend this to anyone who loves the P-51 Mustang and you will not go wrong purchasing this through Motion R/C with the best and friendliest sales and customer service staff in the Hobby business. P.S. Don't forget to install a sound system - it adds a whole new demension to realism.
