Phoenix Model P-51 Mustang Maiden Flight

Maidened the P-51 Mustang from Phoenix Model today. I'll add my $0.02 to the infrequent CG discussions available on this plane. The book's 130mm recommendation flew well for me. The forward rake of the gear causes the CG to shift when operating the retracts. So for my maiden with the gear down I was at 125mm. I did not retract the gear which pushes the CG to 130mm on my plane.

More information about the maiden is in the video:
