Eflite UMX P-51D BL Mustang Maiden Flight - 2017 Cali Christmas Vacation Plane

Happy Holidays! While staying over at my parent’s house in Cali during my Christmas Vacation, I received a wonderful Christmas present – the Eflite UMX P-51D BL Mustang. This is a perfect go-to UMX plane to keep at my parent’s place while vacationing so that I could have something to fly at their local grass park whenever I visit them. I had also brought my trusty Spektrum DX6 (now my secondary transmitter) on my trip to Cali, just in case flying RC during my vacation became an option. Here is the Maiden Flight of my new Eflite UMX P-51D BL Mustang.

Eflite UMX P-51D BL Mustang Maiden Flight - 2017 Cali Christmas Vacation Plane (2 min 57 sec)

I had challenged my Mom to record this on my iPhone 6. Please keep in mind that she does not know anything about RC and has never seen me fly an RC aircraft in person before, so recording this very small plane was very difficult for her (I actually had to edit out a good portion of the footage as at one point she had lost sight of the plane completely, lol). Overall, I think she did a wonderful job! And the Mustang (as most Mustangs do) flew beautifully and predictably out of the box with no surprises.. just a sweetheart of a plane, perfect for vacations. All recorded and edited during my Christmas Vacation with my iPhone 6, using the app Videoshop.

Nice! Will you be flying on 3s? What type of clear tape did you use?
