Combat-tough and easy to assemble, this 56" span P-51 combines smooth sport flight habits with looks that evoke edge-of-your-seat warbird excitement. Its two-piece, balsa-sheeted foam wing has been covered in MonoKote® film, while the detailed cockpit includes an instrument panel, headrest and “ace" pilot figure. Performance is first-rate, too — whether you install glow or electric power!

Great Planes packs plenty of warbird realism into “sport scale". Check out the semi-scale trim scheme, created with Top Flite® MonoKote® film — and the detailed cockpit with instrument panel, headrest and installed pilot figure!

engine & motor
The Sport Scale Mustang performs well with glow power — such as the O.S.® 46AX — or as an electric, using the recommended ElectriFly® RimFire™ .55 brushless outrunner motor. Mounting materials are provided for either choice.

Your onboard radio gear easily mounts into place. Because the Mustang has no special system requirements, you could fly with equipment borrowed from your .40-size trainer — making this an especially economical sport model choice.
The horizontal and vertical stabilizers are factory-hinged and bolt to the fuselage, aligning automatically. Assembly moves quickly — you can be ready for your first dogfight in a matter of hours.
The durable wing is constructed of balsa-sheeted foam, in two sections that assemble quickly and align automatically. It can also be taken apart for easy transport to your favorite flying field.
Engineered for strong flight performance rather than precise scale accuracy, the Sport Scale Mustang makes an ideal step up from models such as the Great Planes Escapade™ or Cherokee. It goes where you point it, with aggressive looks but no bad habits.
