According to the Model Airplane News article from 1989, it's the most scale canopy and nose section the writer had seen, not bad considering it was only intended to be a sport scale fun-flyer. I get though, why he had a hard time getting Nick Ziroli to hand over the transmitter, it's a hoot to fly.

Re: 29 year old P-51

Made several flights with the Mustang, including some formation work with a Great Planes P-51, that I built for my buddy Kevin McKay. The two aircraft are almost identical in size and shape, but his is done in a captured German scheme, so no problem telling them apart. I have to get the mechanical retracts setup, hopefully for next weekend, so I can pour on a bit more speed, I made Kevin's Mustang way too light and fast! lol

Re: 29 year old P-51

A quick update, then consider this thread done, the Mustang continues to impress with it's great flying characteristics. The ASP .91 is super smooth, starts quick, and idles forever, it simply doesn't want to quit. I'm very satisfied with the combo.
