Back-Story
Make it powerful and make it able to fly far. These simple requirements sparked North American Aviation to create a phenomenal weapon called the P-51D. Beyond its muscle, gas storage and gun slinging capabilities, pilots loved to fly it. Better known as “Mustang,” it became America’s favorite fighter airplane, possibly of all-time. The Hangar 9® P-51D Mustang 20cc ARF brings valiant tales of this warbird to life in a convenient 1/6-scale model with unrivaled authenticity.

Overview
The Hangar 9® P-51D Mustang 20cc ARF is an expertly crafted model that combines modern engineering, outstanding flight capability, plus no compromise power-it-the-way-you-want-it expertise to deliver a replica warbird with stunning looks. Modeled after Mustangs used by the 375th Fighter Squadron during WWII, it’s constructed in 1/6-scale with lightweight balsa and plywood for legendary durability.

Leading the list of stunning details is the expertly applied, satin-finish covering of the sleek airframe. The lightweight material captures within scale features like panel lines, rivets, nomenclature and distinct colors for a brilliant appearance that’s durable. Bringing out its authenticity even further is a well-appointed cockpit with a 3D instrument panel, an intricately painted pilot figure and faceted utility compartment. Cowling detail features a matching finish with scale inlets and exhaust, plus a matching spinner. Optional-use wing tanks can be attached on the included wing pylons, or removed to improve high-speed maneuverability. Functional shock-absorbing gear struts include trailing-link suspension and scale-style axles with room for large wheels that make flying from grass easier.

No matter how you look at it, this Mustang is an impressive model for its size. Its two-piece wings smoothly connect with the scale wing fillet and distinct air scoop to lock-in without any need for tools. Control surfaces feature airfoil-shape design for smoother flight, and scale hinge lines with factory drilled hinges for easy installation. You can take the scale experience higher by replacing the rugged fixed landing gear with E-flite® electric retracts available for both the main and tail wheel locations. Functional flaps allow for a wider flight envelope that includes shorter takeoffs and slower landing speeds.

A large top-hatch provides extensive interior access from the cockpit to the firewall. The included hardware package is complete to make assembly as simple as possible and provide easy-to-install mounting options for all the electric and engine power recommendations. No matter what power plant you install, handling in the air is impressive with a look and control feel that honors the original. Whether this is your first warbird, or the perfect complement to your collection, the Hangar 9 P-51D Mustang 20cc ARF is the historic success story you’ve been looking for.

Lightweight Construction
Laser-cut, lightweight balsa and plywood construction is utilized to bring the P-51D Mustang 20cc to life as a durable scale model that's expertly built to exacting standards.

Lightweight Construction
Scale Detail
Beyond the factory applied satin-finish printed covering, other iconic details include airfoil-shaped tail surfaces, realistic engine exhaust, wing guns, gear doors, optional-use drop tanks, radio antenna, a 3D instrument panel and a painted pilot figure—just to name a few.

Scale Detail
Functional Flaps
Light wing-load and a semi-symmetrical airfoil offer flight performance that’s comfortable at a wide range of speeds. Operational flaps allow its versatile flight envelope to open even wider so you can increase flight realism that includes shorter takeoffs and slower landings.

Functional Flaps
Convenience Features
The wing panels feature a strong aluminum tube joiner for ease of transport and storage. When the model is upright, full access inside the model is through a large top-hatch that makes any maintenance and battery changes simple.

Convenience Features
Custom Decals
Choose from one of the two nose-art decals included to finish your model off. “Sky Bouncer” was flown by Captain Bruce (“Red”) Rowlett, and “Geraldine” was flown by Captain Charles Roscoe (“Chuck”) Cummins, both with the 361st Fighter Group, 375th Fighter Squadron stationed in England during WWII.

Custom Decals
Optional Retracts
Rugged fixed landing gear with functional shock-absorbing struts are included so that you can keep the project simple and still enjoy the benefit of smooth ground handling. The optional E-flite® electric retract system recommended accepts the struts, feature all-metal durability and are an easy installation that lets you take in-flight scale realism to a higher level. There’s even an electric tailwheel retract option that can utilize the gear doors included.

Optional Retracts
Power It the Way You Want It
The P-51D Mustang 20cc is designed to accept the Evolution® 20GX, 20cc gas engine, a Saito FG-21, 21cc four-stroke or E-flite Power 60 brushless electric outrunner motor system with a 6S LiPo battery. All hardware needed to install any of the recommended power system is included along with an electric motor mount so you can get to assembly right away and in the air faster. This 20cc ARF is also the perfect replacement airframe for the stock motor, ESC, and recommended flight battery used in the giant E-flite® Carbon-Z® T-28.

I got mine ordered today. I didn't really need another P-51, but I couldn't resist. This can replace my old H9 P-51 Marie, it's pretty rough at this point.

Anyone know a part number for the struts, I don’t see them listed on HH or E Flite?

The struts are included with the ARF and drop in to the recommended retracts.

I would think the 20cc P-51 should be shipping soon so I'm looking into power options. I have a nicely broke in VVRC 20 and a fresh YS 120 to use on this build. The manual states the engine distance is 6.25" from the firewall. Took a measurement of the VVRC 20 mounted on my Stick and it's at 5.5" between firewall and spinner. So a rear mount carb should fit fine. (DLE 20, VVRC 20)

Saw the 20cc P-51 on EBay today for sale. I didn't get a tracking # today, was surprised to see it on EBay before the preorders were sent out.

So I ended up canceling my order with HH and then ordered of eBay to save on the tax, which was around $30. I still ended up getting the plane shipped faster than a pre order plane. I will have the P-51 on Wednesday. 🙂
