|Quick Review from Curtis Mattikow
The P-82 was an excellent quality kit to put
together, went very fast, and fits were great. It's very light. To
convert the P-82 to electric, you will need:
2 x Monster Power 46 outrunner
2 x T-Pro 70A ESC
2 x Exceed Fusion Power 4000mah 5s batteries
The conversion is very easy, you just need to
make up some plywood box mounts for the motors. Use a few degrees of
downthrust. Install the batteries onto velcro atop the wing center
section, about as far back in the fuselages as you can get them. The CG
and control throws stated in the manual are perfect. Make some small
hatches in the sides of the fuselages to access the battery connectors.
You can make the outer wing panels removeable
by gluing the plywood joiners into the outer panels, then shimming the
remaining stubs for a tight fit into the center section, then securing
them with a couple of screws from the bottom of the wing center section
into the stub spars. With removeable outer panels, the plane is very easy
to transport. You will need either a seperate pack for the receiver or a
BEC, the ESCs do not have BECs built in, and there are too many servos for
most BECs anyway.
This power system is very inexpensive, yet
provides outstanding performance, easily equivalent to two 46 sized glow
engines. You will not be dissapointed.
Two 3 1/4" P-51 style spinners from CMP fit
perfectly, and a couple of Nitroplanes jet style pilots, trimmed down
slightly, trim things out nicely.
Once the standard long-range, high-altitude escort fighter for the U.S. Air
Force, the North American P-82 Twin Mustang was the climactic development of a
long series of the famous World War II
P-51 Mustang series.
A radical departure from the conventional single-fuselage airplane, the Twin
Mustang is formed by two fuselages joined by the wing and the horizontal
IN THE BOX It is apparent when you open the that this a well--made "kit."
Each of the major pieces is enclosed in a separate plastic bag. The fuselages
are constructed of balsa and lite-ply and come fully sheeted, the wing and
elevator are built up and the tail feathers, except for the elevator, are solid
sheet balsa. The entire plane is nicely covered with colored aluminum coating.
This kit includes almost everything you need except the engines, props and
The NitroModels P-82 Twin Mustang is a well-made ARF kit that is easy to
assemble and looks awesome when completed. If you are looking for a rather
unusual "twin" but don't want to spend a lot of time building one from scratch,
this plane may be just what you're looking for. This baby will guarantee you
plenty of attention at the flying field!
