Default Parkzone Ultra Micro P-51D Mustang BNF with AS3X Technology

This video includes two flights in addition to the unboxing/review. I hope my initial take on my latest RC plane purchase helps you decide if this plane is for you.



My overall rating of this plane is high. I will break-down my thoughts below:

The quality is high on this plane, but still isn't perfect. The canopy had a tiny mist of overspray on it. Otherwise, this product feels and looks just as good if not better than my larger parkflyers.

It is fun! I shouldn't have to say much more than that since everyone that flies RC planes knows that what is.

The value is pretty darn good for what you get.

Overall, I am incredibly impressed with this plane and I look forward to many many great flights with it.

Great plane...I love mine. So scale and beautiful for a micro. Can slow it way down also....I have about 35% expo in mine though to keep it from being so twitchy.

It really is a great plane!

I believe I have +30 for my expo on this plane and it is super smooth compared to my Pole Cat and other micros.

I've got the spitfire and its a dream, very impressed with overall build quality and toughness.
Just put 2 blade prop on mine, decent thrust upgrade and better
balance, the four blade it came with had an imbalance/run out
I could not correct. And landing gear is a but weak, I made balsa supports off the
foam radiators to help support the gear, it worked ok but
im decided on hand launches and belly landings now.

That is aweseome! I am considering getting one that is still floating around, but know that those are getting snatched up quickly.

I've now put nearly 40 flights on my um spitfire, looking into brushless
conversion on a spare fuse I picked up.
I removed about 5 g of parts off the spitty and re balanced with
clay. Its great now! Yesterday I flew in 20kmh gusts, bit tricky but
all went ok. Only piece of advice I would give is remove the gear,
And belly land. Unless you are on flawless pavement the wheels are too small.
The plane will flip over on upon touchdown.
I fly over snow mostly ( Canada) and have gotten fairly adept at
belly landings if I do say so myself.
I'd recommend the UM series from parkzone to anyone!
$ vs value the are great little planes :-)

Let my roommate fly it to try to convince him to get one...
good thing it takes wing fixes rather well!
Either fw 190 or p51 for me next!

Nice! I just got the FW-190 and did a review on it in here. I love my P-51 and haven't had worth than a rough landing with it ever. It is a great plane!

Do you have any video with your Spit?

So I just relearned the other day that 1S batteries don't like that cold with this little plane. This is a healthy battery fully charged flying in below freezing temps:

This is my first flight with this plane with no landing gear!
