    This is a long-awaited flight video of my 1:96 scale P-51. It used to be a very unreliable flier, and I never managed to video any of its few successful flights. Its many crashes rendered it unable to fly at all. So I took a step back and developed an enhanced version of the Rabbit radio receiver to include 3-axis gyro stabilization. This did the trick of bringing the plane under control, and this video is the result.





    The internals of this plane, and its predecessor Spitfire, are described in a couple of papers:
