Mike's P-51B - Build-Along

This is my first "SOLO" scratch build project. Last winter I learned how to scratch build from a friend and this winder I am giving it a go on my own. I decided to build a P-51B using Mark Rittinger Plans. Details of the build can be found here

I plan on using the same setup as my P-47 Thunderbolt:

2 - Hitec HS-65MG (metal gear) servos for the elevator & aileron
1 - 40 amp e-flite speed controller
1 - 42-40-800 outrunner electric motor
1 - 4000mAh 25C copper tab Hecell battery
13x8.5 Master Airscrew Electric prop producing about 440 watts!
wing loading was 16oz.
42" wing span

More details and pics will be posted after the build is completed.

Maiden Flight

The Mustang completed it's Maiden flight on April 22, 2010. Very stable flying warbird that even though it is very light (36 oz), it cuts through the air and can easily fly in 10 - 15 mph winds...... Pics can be found on the build thread.
