Hacker P-51D Fun Fighter Series Overview

I know this is an older kit but I just recently picked one up and got it built and maiden this week so thought I post up a thread on it as I didn’t see one for it already via a search.

Nicely made kit, nice detailing with clear canopy and paintjob. Flew very smooth and solid right from the initial maiden.

Tower $30 worth a try.

With so many types of models and flying styles in our hobby it often seems like a ghost town in these forums, where you don't see a response for 1000 days, a time warp of sorts, but none the less time just resumes without missing a beat. And so this brings us here to May 21st, 2016 and a $30 Tower Hobbies special delivery.

I have no idea about which range of flying weight I will be attempted to settle in upon. Either lightest as possible (2 servos, 3s850mA and no CF rod reinforcement added) so if it crashes.....when, it will not weigh anything and be nearly impossible to ruin the relaxing afternoon flying session. Or aim for more rigidity and power to really make this thing putt around regardless of normal wind, the extra strength and power will be noticeably present.

Guessing Lite setup @11oz and 14oz for higher performance trim.

Guess this is maybe the simplest model I will own and use to fly in the park whenever I don't want to get more involved with going to the air field.
