Welcome to the Mountain Models 1/12 Scale P-51 Mustang Electric Park Flyer. We believe this model fits an area that has been largely ignored or done poorly to date. We strived to provide a laser cut kit that provides the builder a properly engineered, nicely finished, lightweight, great flying park flyer that is as scale as possible.
Designed in 3D CAD, we used interlocking laser cut parts throughout, to make assembly as easy as possible, locking parts together for proper alignment and fit. This kit is designed for the novice to intermediate builder and the intermediate pilot in mind. You should have some experience with tail draggers, knowing how to use the rudder and elevator on takeoff runs.
Once in the air, however, even the novice can fly this model. If you don’t have tail dragger experience, get some help from someone that does and you’ll be fine flying this model. You’ll be the envy of pilots at your field when you show up with this model. They won’t believe what they’re seeing!
