|This is the Tuff Planes Radio Controlled Slope Soaring Sailplane rendition of the famous P51-D of WWII. Outlawed in some areas for it's slimmed down fuselage and high aspect ratio wings, this warbird is tweeked for optimum sailplane performance. This high efficiency radio controlled slope soarer was considered too fast to fly in some competitions. Energy retention and turning ability makes this sailplane an unbelievable front side slope performer. The wing spar system uses carbon fiber, basswood and fiberglass to create an exceptionally strong and stiff wing. This prevents flutter at Dynamic Soaring speeds well above 100mph. The quality of this kit is outstanding due to the CNC hotwire cut wings and fuselage. Don'e be fooled by those "Ginzu" planes that do it all. This plane is fast, it was designed to be fast!|
|Designed to conform to ASRO requirements for Radio Controlled Foamie MoM Slope Sailplane Racing with the 60" wingspan exception|
Brian Laird: "Hell you should race that in the regular 60" foam division."
AJorahkni" "This hot P-51 would be like brining a F1 racer to Talledga, slapping B** and #8 decals on it."
JD: "I own the P-51 in the photo. It's a dream flyer. Fast, nimble, strong and looks super in the air. I couldn't be happier. Fun fun fun!"
