While outwardly the same, this new park-fly P-51 from Parkzone has been completely re-engineered in comparison to the outgoing version. |
Was it really way back in 2005 when Parkzone first introduced their ready-to-fly P-51 park-fly fighter? Things have moved on in electric flight since then so it's no suprise to see this new version. Out goes the brushed 'can' motor and NiMH battery to be replaced by a '480' size brushless outrunner and a 1300mAh 3S Li-Po.
The model is now an all-EPO airframe with a removable top-deck providing ample access to servos, ESC and battery recess. The model is available as a Bind'n'Fly package for DSM2 2.4GHz flyers (pre-fitted with an AR500 receiver) or an RTF package complete with a 27MHz transmitter. Both versions come complete with the Li-Po battery, pre-fitted servos, ESC, motor, prop and spinner. They're both also £174.99 and we'll have a full review of the model in RCM&E very soon.
