ESM Gunfighter P-51D Mustang 71″

The Gunfighter P-51D Mustang produced by ESM, is yet another top notch RC scale airplane design to excite you with both appearance and performance. ESM of China has been importing RC scale airplanes into the USA and Canada for a few years now, and in that time ESM has become recognized as a new industry leader in highly detailed, great flying, ARF’s. Not only are the ESM ARF’s highly detailed, and great flying, they are extremely affordable for anyone to enjoy!

The P-51D Mustang, as with all of ESM’s RC scale airplanes, come already painted at the factory, have pre-applied decals (which are then covered with a clear coat at the factory), have factory functional flaps (if the full scale version also had flaps), and come with one of the more complete hardware packages anywhere…including screws, rods, fuel tanks…etc.

All ESM planes are painted with a very high quality enamel paint which is resistant to oil, grease, and fuels. The high gloss paints are of course easier to clean than the low gloss. These paints can be painted over for weathering and the like.

Most ESM scale RC airplanes have poly resin fiberglass fuselages, with the wings being typical built up, and then covered with an etched polyester film, which is then painted for a perfect match! While all ESM scale RC planes come from the factory with conventional gear and wheels, ESM also offers a complete line of retracts for each individual plane, adding to the level of scale realism that all scale pilots look for in an ARF. It doesn’t end there, ESM offers separately a full line of scale accessories like bombs, gear doors, pilots, external fuel tanks and more, specifically designed to help those builders who want the most realism possible, without having to spend hours designing and building all these extra scale goodies.

Here at TBM we know that things can happen, and because of this, we work very hard with ESM to provide you with many spare parts. Simply refer to your warranty for further information as to parts availability.

The ESM Gunfighter P-51D Mustang, as with all of the ESM line of ARF scale RC airplanes, look and fly so realistically that we are confident that you will be extremely pleased !!! ESM is continually working on producing new RC scale aircraft, and most of these new offerings will be available with wingspans of 80 inches or more so that they will meet or exceed IMAA legal requirements…so be sure to come back often to see what new ARF scale RC aircraft TBM and ESM have coming out!

The detailed fuselage is poly resin fiberglass, with scale panel lines and rivets molded right in. Wings are typical built up construction, include pre-designed cavities and mounting blocks for optional scale retracts, and have factory constructed flaps, all of which is then factory covered with an etched polyester film. All parts are finally expertly painted right at ESM’s factory, and once dry, all scale decals are pre-applied, and are then covered with a factory clear coat for protection.
