Hobby King Mini P-51D Mustang - Setup Mod for correct CG

Postby bmsweb » Fri Jul 22, 2011 2:52 am

Hi Guys, I've purchased a second Mini P51D Mustang from Hobby King for my son. If you're interested in this great model you might find this video useful in locating the Battery and Receiver for correct CG on this Model. While making the modification to fit the battery etc I thought I would make a quick video on it.

Thanks Bruce :)

I got the Receiver and Battery installed in my son's model only to find the Elevator servo was sticking and I had this problem with my Mini P-51 also, so I think its a design issue that may cause problems in performance and possibly servo failure. The sticking pushrod was causing the elevator to stick and not move smoothly. In any case I did an extremely quick video on what to watch out for if you purchase one of these pocket rockets from HK.
