Reno Aces P-51 Galloping Ghost from HobbyKing

Details

The H-King P51 "Galloping Ghost" is the first in a new mini-series from H-King, the "Reno Aces", WW2 fighters dressed to impress at the air races. The P-51 "Galloping Ghost" with the included stock 3108-1070KV brushless motor offers a really quick model straight out of the box with speeds approaching 100mph when using the recommended 2200mah 4S lipo. However, if you are an experienced hand and are looking for 100+ mph speeds then there is the optional drop-in fit 3108-1170KV 'Pro' brushless motor. This will give your great-looking Reno Ace a really ballistic performance on the same prop, ESC, and 4S battery for those that can handle the extra rotational torque on launch.

The P-51 as a design has excellent flying qualities, but the H-King "Galloping Ghost" especially so. Its low drag design and generous wing section results in a model that really grooves and feels locked in at full power, but slow it down and it is a real pussycat too, and just as much fun. The stall is very benign, basically non-existent, the controls remain effective through the complete speed range, and aerobatics, it can do them all. Once you're done with your 6+min flight, fully flared landings are very easy to achieve and make belly landing the P-51 a pure joy.

The H-King version of this classic racing Mustang comes "Plug N Fly" which means it has the motor, ESC, and servos pre-installed. The tough EPO foam is finished in the authentic silver color scheme of NX7911 "Galloping Ghost" with racing number 177. Assembly is very easy and straightforward with its one-piece wing and simple slot in horizontal stabilizer (no glue required). Other features are the substantially reinforced fuselage, plywood, and carbon are used to create a stiffened and strengthened fuselage, and motor box. Plastic skid plates are fitted to all the underside contact areas for protection when landing, and you are supplied with the option of both a clear, or a golden canopy to add the finishing touch to your Mustang.

So to summarize, the H-King P-51 "Galloping Ghost" is fast out of the box with the pre-installed motor (optional 'Pro' motor available for even more speed), it has fantastic flying qualities with good fast and slow speed handling, is strong, and quick to assemble. It is a great contender for use at fun, club pylon racing events with the strength and maneuverability to do "Bank and Yank" pylon turns. A great, fun airplane that is brilliant to fly, looks fantastic in the air, and will have you smiling from ear to ear the whole time you are flying it.

  • Up to 100mph on 'Stock' motor. 100+ mph speeds with optional 'Pro' motor
  • Reinforced EPO foam construction, lightweight, strong and stiff
  • Plastic skid plates to streamline and protect the airframe
