Durafly Cessna 182 55" (1.4m) Wingspan
The other part of my recent HK order, a Durafly Cessna 182 in EPO foam. This one took a bit more work to assemble. Another kit which came with servos, ESC and motor. But in this case I think the quality of the servos, ESC and motor are less impressive that the Pitts. I just had to add RX and a 2200mAH 3S lipo pack.
On the up side, the foam seems durable. Similar to Multiplex Elapor foam. Downside is that the plane is pretty hefty, 3lb 4oz ready to fly. The plane has fully functional flaps and nice scale details which is definitely better than most foamy planes. From what I've read, it should be more of a scale style flyer.
I plan to use this as a trainer for teaching friends to fly using a buddy box setup.
