The Hyperion Mustang P-51D "25" is the first in a series of
models which define a new class. Hyperion saw a need for larger models with
wingspan of about 1.2 meters (47" ~52") which are designed from the ground
up with electric flight in mind, and which sacrifice nothing in scale
detail, accessories, and quality of finish.
This size of model is easiest to classify as "engine 25 size",
simply because no clear rating system exists for larger electric models. In
fact, we realized after flying the Mustang that it's light - but that it is
also rugged. So we added two mounts to the kits. One is for Brushless
Outrunners like the recommended Z3025-08 (or AXI 2826 series), and the other
fits 0.25 ci glow engines, in case that's your preference...
What we love best about this Mustang is the combination of sweet
manners (often not the case with Mustangs!) and wide speed envelope. With
the Z3025-08 and a 10x7 prop she has good speed and plenty of thrust for
large loops, but barely uses 340W maximum power. You could use a battery as
small as HP-LVX2100-3S with this setup. But we recommend the HP-LVX2500-3S
or HP-LVX3300-3S instead, for longer duration when you use the APC "E" 10x10
prop. With this setup the P-51 still slows down nicely when requested, but
is also capable of blazing-fast low passes and absolutely HUGE loops.
THIS KIT INCLUDES ALUMINUM RETRACTS!
