I'd say probably not -- but I know one gifted new RC pilot who started with that and the micro Sukhoi. Definitely fly over grass, not pavement.

No, not a good one at all. More for an intermediate pilot

The Vapor and the Cessna would be better bets, in that series, for a beginner. The Vapor was the very first RC plane I flew.

Vapor is fun and easy to start. C210 takes more practice. Sukhoi and p51D take experience.

Do not buy a P51 if you are a beginner.

Get a Vapor or another slightly faster 3 channel micro until you get bored the hell out of it while spending time on simulators to practice 4channels.

need to learn orientation pretty well, the mustang moves pretty quickly.

I'd say 'no' too. It moves quick, has a hair-trigger, and at 1.5oz isn't terribly robust. I've put it into the ground a number of times and I don't crash my other planes. Granted, I'm usually doing something low and stupid, but you just don't have any time to recover.

Once crash at a time

I would say no aswell, but i got one as a first plane after studying plane physics in my spare time and having about 50 hours on a sim, on which i can hover 3d planes etc. But i would say get a multiplex easy star
