ParkFlyers Cessna

Hey is the Parkflyers Cessna 182 V 3 shown here :http://www.parkflyers.com/Cessna_182...e_p/4304v3.htm

The Same as the Cessna 182 3G3X Version shown on your site here:
http://parkrcmodels.com/product_info...roducts_id=544

They look Identical and wondered if they are the same plane ? Just curious.

Thanks in advance.

the actual fuselage and wing set look like the Skyartec Cessna - the radio, ESC, Motor and Battery are not the same - further the Skyartec Cessna Radio is a 3 axis gyro setup that will keep the airplane stable and in level flight for the beginner

Max is your Cessna EPO Foam or is it EPS, ( expanded polystyrene.) material ?

I see you site mentions EPO like technique ? Makes me think of a smooth depron foam type material, feels like plastic-smooth, but is more brittle and breaks easily on impact, not like EPO that crumples.

Can you elaborate ?

Notice you also have a 5 channel version, and uses a 3 S battery...the other company uses 4 ch and 2 S and boasts 60 MPH capabilities ...and uses a Tri-Blade prop, I assume to help achieve that boast ?

Can you provide a tri-blade prop and does it really matter , 2 or 3 blade with this style plane ?

Interested in a Cessna, just trying to decide which way to go .

Also noticed neither plane has Wing strut supports ?

Thanks in Advance for your input.

Can you elaborate ?

Wings and Fuselage is a very smooth version of EPO; very flexible and shiny - I think a special compound the factory uses - the Vertical Tail and Horizontal Tail Wing are of a harder plastic

Notice you also have a 5 channel version, and uses a 3 S battery...the other company uses 4 ch and 2 S and boasts 60 MPH capabilities ...and uses a Tri-Blade prop, I assume to help achieve that boast ?

Cannot speak about the other having 3 blades - but his motor and battery offer more power - Skyartec has flaps AND a full feature 7 Channel Radio that is fully programable; further the Plane has the newest 3 axis Gyro Receiver that helps keep the plane in level flight for beginners

Can you provide a tri-blade prop and does it really matter , 2 or 3 blade with this style plane ?

Factory has a well tuned normal 2 blade prop - this plane is plenty fast

Skyartec Cessna Now has wing supports

Thanks in Advance for your input.
