    Going to USAFA! Saying goodbye to the hobby for now, and a BIG Reveal!

    As some of you might know for the last year I have been applying to both the United States Naval Academy and Air Force Academy. This has been a slow moving process, but after eight months of waiting I have finally made a decision. Last month I received news that I was accepted into the Air Force...

    Plane Mighty Mini P-51B Mustang 1.0

    If you're anything like me then you'll like the looks of planes better when they have a razorback. While I like the look of the bubble canopy on the P-51, I prefer the looks of the P-51B which has a razorback style canopy. I reconstructed the fuselage of the FT Mini Mustang so that it looks...

    Mountain Models P-51D Mustang "Dolly"

    Shortly after getting into rc I picked up a vintage Cleveland P-38 made in 1942. To prevent myself from destroying it I decided to try my hand at a more moderm model first, so I picked up a P-51 from Mountain Models. I'm already pretty far along in the process, this is where I'm at. I picked...

There have been a couple of great examples of constant...

    Mustang or Hornet?

    I have been wanting to get a scale warbird for a while now. Now I have the option to either get a Force RC 1.1m Mustang, or a Force RC F-18. My problem is that my landing strip is less than ideal. Between the dirtbikes and tractors, my yard is really rough by most lawn standards. I am afraid...

    Part Scale"ish" P-51 Mustang Exhaust 1.0

    The Mustang is by far and wide my favorite airplane. I wanted to add some details to one of my Flite Test builds for Flite Fest Ohio (2018) and came up with these. Slow down your prints a bit as the pipes can be tricky to print. I have a .3 nozzle and set it for .1 layer height. Infill and...

    Hi from Yorkshire, UK

    Hi there, I'm Caroline, getting back into aero-modelling after too many years doing those dull adult things like bringing up family, getting divorced and moving halfway up a country. So here I am, living in a beautiful part of the country and thinking I need a good reason to get out more and...

    FT BF109

    Hi, We have the FT Mustang and FT Spitfire, how about a FT Messerschmitt BF109 to round it out? I imagine you could use the mustang wing and the spitfire body and with a few modifications come close to the BF109's look. Maybe once I have scratch built the spitfire and mustang I can give the...

    Hello, I was just starting this awesome hobby. I have built the mighty mini trainer and mighty mini speedster and flown them. However I want to build a better looking airplane that still flies on 3 channels. I was wondering if the Mighty mini Mustang is able to fly without the ailerons, so I...

    The wings on my Mustang are curling

    I'm on my second Mustang. On the first, I didn't use the landing gear and chose to belly land it. The plane dipped slightly as it was doing it's final stall near the ground and the wings started to curl down at the tips (about the last two inches) with repeated hits. On the second, I decided...

    FT Mustang "Miss America" with retracts

    I wanted to share some pictures of my FT Mustang with retracts. I'm sorry I didn't document the build thoroughly, since adding the retracts took a lot of thought in the execution since they have to be added before the wing is inserted into the fuselage, and I even went as far as adding and...

    Andre's Durafly P-51D Mustang 1100mm

    Hello my name is Andre and I have a problem. I've not even flown the P-40 and there is another warbird in the hanger. I picked up the Durafly P-51D Mustang 1100mm from Joshua aka willsonman. How could I refuse a decent deal on a used warbird. The goal was to use the FT network to try and ship...

    Mustang fail

    I've finished the Nutball, Delta and Flyer builds. I've been getting better at the whole process in general. BUT, epic fail today on the Mustang, which I was trying to do an extra clean job on. Problem is the part where you put the paper on the top, curving it around and gluing the edges. I...
