Woohoo! Very cool.
Pre-ordering mine now.

Not to complain (cause I am happy about this), but I was really hoping the next 2S warbird was going to be something we don't really already have, like a Dauntless, Hellcat or at least a P-51B (since there are lots of D-models out there). I'd also love to see a Black Widow in the future, as well as a P-40 Flying Tiger (since the first UM was kinda slow and quickly unavailable). Man, I'd love to see a 2S P-40 in this size. Anyway, sorry for derailing here.

Bring on the new P-51. Yeah!

+1! There's no way I can resist these 2S warbirds....

Nice tease Matt!

Like this one I made for you!?

Back in the T-28 owners thread, page 90

If you have the license for the Rare Bear, wouldn't this still be a good time for a UMX Rare Bear? We would also take a plain old military F8F.

The new UMX P-51 Mustang looks very nice, great job!

Consider that the T-28 really is the illegitimate child of an F4F and a P-51 (the T-28B & D are pretty much a F4F's R-1820 in a P-51 derived airframe, and yes, 1820's were used on F4F's, although the 1830 was used on most variants)

Considering how much faster the original AS3X UM P-51 is over it's scale UM brothers (the T-28, Corsair, Spitfire and P-40), this new BL P-51 should be amazingly fast…even faster than the UMX P-47. With it's sleek nose and fuselage, this thing should rival the speed of my little P3. Can't wait!!!

And with the higher kv, the pitch speed will be higher too.

HH Listens


I love the P-51. That plane and the F4U Corsair are my WWII faves.

I think HH is doing a great job, and they listen to the consumers. I noticed they upped the Kv from 2500 to the 3000 over the P-47 which was a little low on power. Most likely this plane will not have a decalage issue either. I love the UMX P-47, but had to swap the motor/prop and fix the H stab issue.

I really would not mind a T-28. They are the ubiquitous HH model that is needed in every size!! I think it is a great flying model and they need a UMX refresh with 2S and As3X to replace the old 1S model.

Thanks HH! Keep making them, I'll keep buying and flying them.

UMX P-51D BL BNF Basic


Not surprised but I'm happy.
I love how Mustangs fly.
2S = 3S for me.
There will but nothing 'Gentle' about Annie when I fly her.
