P-51D Mustang

P-51D Mustang, realistic cockpit

P-51D Mustang RC model flown through live feed video (landing too!). FPV! (First Person View)

Builders Notes: I used an old 80's GI Joe for the hands/jacket/pants and 5&9 gram servos for the pilot's head camera pan&tilt, throttle and control stick. The head tracking in the goggles controls the Mobius camera movement, it's actually very natural to look around while flying, it has been a fun project :). 1600mm wingspan w/ lights/flaps/retracts and fully animated scale cockpit. 4S 5000mah battery, 5.8GHz 400mW VTX.
