Cessna 172 Skyhawk

IŽm Raphael, from Brazil and this is my cessna 172 from guillows plans.
Flyies perfectly, and, believe or not it weights only 235g (8,4oz) ready to fly .
Kit wood was not used; I made all the parts with light balsa, changed the wing ribs profile and the cabin (didnŽt like that plastic cabin from guillows)
This is the result: the plane flyies perfect and the only problem are the landings; this airplane doesnŽt descent when I move the throtle full back because it has an incredible lift rate. I guess the use of flaps would solve this "problem" .
4 chanel with steering wheel
Motor brushless 2204-14 with 10amp speed and 7x5 master airscrew prop.
900mHa Lipo batery (30 minutes flying with 1/3 throtle)
4 x servos 3.7g
Futaba 2.4ghz custom receiver
Microlite covering
As soon as I have videos IŽll post on youtube
Hope you all like!
