Eachine P-51D Mustang

This little guy rocked up at my house on Wednesday. Four channel, with gyro stabilisation, and a handy beginner-intermediate-expert flight mode setting so that you can have ultimate enjoyment from flying it.

I haven't flown it myself yet but, once the wind has died down, I will go commit aviation....!

You sound genuinely enthused with this airplane. Flight stabilization sure has come a long way since I bought a beginner RTF. That was a disaster and soured me on the hobby for several years. The "anti-crash technology" was more like "guaranteed you'll crash it". If it wasn't for the Flite Test cheap to build and great flying Tiny Trainer I never would have gotten back into this hobby or stayed this long.
I've never flown anything with flight stabilization. I might have to get one just to see what it's like. Then I can strip out the electronics and put it in a balsa airplane. :)

As soon as I get the chance, I'll fly the Mustang and report back.

Eachine also do an F4U Corsair which looks to be just as good.

I've been eyeing this one and since I already have my Mini Mustang in the redtail livery I've been leaning towards the F4U. There is supposed to be a T-28 soon as well.

I managed to get the Mustang flying twice today!

Have to say that she flew perfectly fine both times. I tried to film the first flight using a new camera, but it didn't work for some reason, so I had to go out and have another attempt!

The resulting video was OK, but I will try again at some point!
