Monster Scale Mustang

Monster Scale Mustang

If you are a true P-51 Mustang fan, then you must know the name “Galloping Ghost!” This Reno Racer has thrilled race fans for years. This video of a truly giant scale warbird even captures how magnificent this P-51 Reno Racer sounds fitted out with a Kolm 3 cylinder 230cc inline engine. This monster model is piloted by Andreas Gietz of CARF Models and was filmed at the Weston Park International Model Show

  1. I am new to RC planes, so during the cold months I was hoping to hone my skills on a simulator that will link to my DX6e controller. I purchased RF8 along with the wireless interface donzel. Did not work as advertised. Do you have any knowledge of this product other than the propaganda the manufacture turns out. I’m not computer wizard however, not shy around the workings either. Any information would be appreciated as I would like to fly with my granddaughter at the airshow this spring.
    thank you

  2. Nice one Andreas.

  3. It is unfortunate what happened to her and the pilot in 2011. My son and I attended the races that year, but were at Lake Tahoe on the day of the tragedy. I still have a photo of the ghost the night from the night before.

  4. I think this model is O.K. Would have been better if the airfoil wasn’t so thick….very none scale. But my biggest objection was the choice of using the Galloping Ghost as a subject. I was there the day the real plane slammed into the stands at the Reno Air Races killing many people and permanently dissableing many others. There are many other race plane subjects that could have been used…. Very poor taste in my opinion.

  5. So honoring someone by replicating the lost aircraft is in poor taste? You surely don’t understand aviation. Maybe try trains or cars.
