P-51 Mustang HO v2 (version 2)
Designed for more experienced pilots to run on obstacle and race courses at higher speed.
Top speed about 260 mph (HO - High Output).
Custom HO Engine with torque curve adjusted for a little smoother acceleration in the mid to high rpm range.
Able to fly slow and fast in a course depending on how challenging and tight the course may be.
Changed from first version (P-51 Mustang HO):
Slightly decreased control surface sensitivity.
Wheel Brake Smoke only operates with up-Elevator AND Throttle very low.
Slight increase in speed (260mph).
Should be a little easier to fly even though faster.
Wheel Brakes applied with up elevator (ch2).
Smoke On AND Rear Attack Rockets with ch8 down(If Rockets enabled).
You can enable the rockets by setting /Airframe/Main Wing/Rocket Launcher/Trigger Servo = "Smoke Switch and Rockets" in the Aircraft Editor.
Cockpit open with ch8 up.
Smoke Off and Cockpit closed with ch8 center position.
Guns AND Rates ch5 (to disable guns, set machine guns = No Servo).
Added/changed from Stock P-51:
Increased Wheel Drag - landing and steering gear offer a little extra air drag to slow down quicker for landing (Don't forget to Gear-Up).
Increased Strength - to cope with higher speed. Ok to touch wing tip while making a turn flying low.
A little stronger elevator mixed with flaps for slow flying with less up elevator fighting.
Smoke On has reduced smoke for higher frame rates and less blinding for the pilot behind you.
Machine Guns on wings.
Rear Attack Rocket Launchers (need to be enabled).
This plane is tuned for All-Around Quick Response while using LOW Rates (rates are not that low).
It is tuned to offer a compromise between low and high speed obstacle course maneuvering leaning toward faster flying.
I only use High Rates for Very Slow courses.
Using the rudder allows for smoother course flying.
I also use rudder to assist in banking for a tight turn.
Adjust Rates for the course you are flying and your skill level.
Please let me know how you like this plane and the rate settings.
