I will try to put a video until tommorow.
I have bought here:
http://abc-rc.pl/p/56/2385/model-ces...-szybowce.html
329 PLN = about 80 EUR
It is a KIT version without electricity.
I had choice to buy an ARFT version, however, with the same money I've got stronger engine and servos...

In my opinion the engine in RTF (30A) version is to weak. Now, I have engine 45A and it gives me really nice flying. I use about 50% of power to fly in a "classic way". The second 50% is a reserve for acrobatic style

Hi. I have this plane more then year and it is still my favourtite model! Best plane I have ever had!

Maybe it is not model for 3D flying, but gives you really fun. When you paint it well, most people cannot believe it is epp-model

It flies reverently and behaves a bit like a real plane 1:1. It glides well, espiecially with flaps it doesnt want to land

You can put there lots of additional electronic, camera, fvp etc... Weight of all this things doesnt change much its flying. I use Lipo beetwen 2200 - 5500 mah 3S and dont feel any difference. So you could put him much more...

What is only important - I dont recommend the RTF model. The electronics is too weak to have fun with this plane. You should use stronger engine, esc and servos then is recommended by producer and put it to KIT version. Then you will make a great model.

I have put more photos in my blog:
http://rc-miruuu.weebly.com/cessna-182-skylane.html
Unfortunatley desciption is in polish language, but if you have any questions - just ask!

Hello again, I forgot to make a question: Can it do any aerobatic? I mean, I know it is not a 3d model, but how is it in inverted flight? can It handle a knife edge? etc...
I am searching a FPV model but to do a simple aerobatics...
Thanks!!

Hi. It is difficult question. I think it is possible, however it will be difficult. It is a typical trainer so it doesnt flight agressive. It flights rather fluently and not too fast. Of course it depends alsto on engine you will use, but the shape of plane will make limitations...
I think it would be easier to flight with FVP set rather then do acrobacits 3D - if you know what I mean...

One more case, I forgot before. It is important to do a little modification in the landing set. Originally, you have one wheel in the front. It is very weak and break during everylanding. It is good to change it as I did: the one wheel put in the rear of the plane. And the middle two wheels a bit to front (there is possibility to put the middle wheels in two planes originally, so you can do it easly...)

OHH!!! I appreciate your great advises!!
You are totally right, but I dont want to make 3D flying in FPV, but now I have a "Easystar type" and the rolling are so lazzyyy... the loopings are not good, etc.
So this is the reason to take another really plane!! not a ugly glider and if it can do some beatiful figures, and I REALLY LIKE this cessna
Yes, I want to sell a plane and I will get it and make all yor advises. Thanks!!
I have seen your video:
Cessna 182 Skylane from Lanyu by PAVC HD2 (6 min 2 sec)

and It is really good!! this aerobatics are enough for me in FPV...
THANKS!!

Comparing to Easystar, in Cessna the acrobatics are a bit better, but dont expect too much. I think, what you have seen in the video, was nearly a maximum what Cessna can do.
BUT, the landing is great With flaps you can do long, slow and realistic landing, what gives you fun, especially when you wanna feel you ster the real plane...

OK!!! thanks!!! I totally agree with you!!
At first I let the stock electronics, and later on I will change them. (when get more money)
How long can you flight with a 2200mah 3s lipo?
Thanks!

It is difficult question for me, as my lipo's are quaite old and not efficient.
I think, with new 2200 3S lipo, you can fly about 4-8 minutes. It depends on yours flying style...
However, you can easly put bigger lipos. If you dont have large lipos, you can do as I do...
I connect smaller lipos into one big... For example 2x 2200 3S and so on...
You will really not feel difference between 2200 and 4000mah 3S... One only big difference will be time of flying
