P-51 Build

Hi, All

Here are the plans for our P-51. It is made from 6mm Depron. As you can see from the photo the wing is low and is gusseted to the stiffener. It flys well the only thing that I would do on the next one I build will be to add some 1/2" triangle to the back of the fuse that is the weak point. We will have kits up on our web site next week.

Would it be possible to change your PDF files so all the lines are black. It would be much easier to plot that way!

The yellow on the fuselage does not show up well at all.

Thanks!

I have converted the file to black and white but would like permission from Depron Laser Cutting's rep before I post it.

I asked and received permission to post these plans that I have converted to black and white. These are full size prints as I've not yet made tiled versions. I have a large format printer so the need to use tiles isn't formost for me when I'm working.

How to build

Hi There

Has anyone build this plane yet, and more so are willing to guide one through the process step by step. I just love this plane, and would really like to build one.

I am currently building this airplane to fly combat.... It is built of 6mm Depron foam and a carbon fiber spar.
The motor and speed control being used is a inexpensive towerpro combo (2408-21 motor and a 15 amp speed control). This motor combo provides a suprisingly powerful 23+ oz thrust as tested on a test stand with a 7"x5" prop.
This model is also planned to have landing gear.
I will post pics soon.....

I've not built mine yet but hope to soon. Biggest problem is time of course. Would love to have build pictures of yours as you go along. I'm going to do the same on mine to make a build guide for our local clubs site as many of us build for combat. (totalled two planes doine combat so far this month ) Time to build number three (Hopefully this week.)

We have a delta wing we use for combat. It is very tough and easy to repair after a head on.

So which is it....tough or easy?!

Just playing with your wording! Anyway, I looked at your combat bird, but I wanted something that at least resembled a warbird. I am building this P-51 identical to Romeodz's, then it should only come down to skillz as to who eats dirt! Your going down my friend!!!

The real question is what happened to Gary Guidi? His site does not show any of our kits, any more... My last several contact attempts were in vain. I guess he didn't make it. Oh well, just another lesson learned!

Well, I have re-started this airplane again. Installed the landing gear and radio. (minus control rods and battery) Still not sure to the battery's exact placement.
Hopefully to post pic in the next day or two... again
