NEW 47.5" wingspan Hobbico Flyzone Cessna 182 Skylane 5 channel
I cannot warn you guys enough, this plane is horrible. I wasted $250 on a total piece of garbage. The latch is 100 foam (how brilliant!), so the latch comes off during flight and the battery comes loose and the plane crashes. My $250 lesson can be your gain! Learn from me and DON"T BUY THIS PLANE!!
Hopefully they'll design a better one in the future.

Yes, this information is nothing new.
The BL version is just adequately powered, so an experienced pilot would enjoy it rather than a beginner pilot

Try reading the thread on the st version which is the same plane i cannot say enough good things about this plane except for the week front wheel and the underpowered hobbico version. But with a simple motor swap its a great plane and great looking. Never had or heard of any one having the batt come out who had it secured. I use an extra piece of foam to do this if your an exp pilot you should have realized that. Also the plane rolls fine.

Bad nose gear
I am new to this so I hope I am doing this right.
Any one have a good fix to this nose gear on this plane?
I have had to fix it almost every time I have flown it (ca glue,duct tape).
Replaced it once and back to ca and duct tape. The plastic knee action system is just to cheesy to hold up under anything but a perfect landing.
