Nitro Planes New! FMS Scale Skyline 182 Trainer EPO Foam "Review"

Nitro Planes new "FMS Scale Skyline 182 Trainer"

Upon recieving the skyline trainer, I open Up the box and was amazed at the detail of the EPO foam scale trainer looks. Even thought I'm not a beginner at this Rc Flying Hobby, looking at the trainer on the Nitroplanes.com website, it kept me curious at the scale looks and to read that the trainer model has a 55" wingspan got me going. As the spec's read.

Specifications:

Wingspan: 55.5in / 1410mm
Overall Lenght: 40.5in / 1030mm
Flying Weight: 1100g
Wing Area; 27.35dm2
Wing Loading: 34g / dm2
(700kv) Motor Drive System Brushless Outrunner
Servo's: 4x9g High Speed Micro Servo's
Speed Controller: 25A Brushless ESC
Battery: 11.1v 1800mAh Li-po
4 CH Multi-Functional FM Radio Trasmitter / 6 CH Micro Receiver
3000 Feet Control Range (1000m)


After reading this, I just had to have one for my collection. Plane Arrived on time and was assembled in less than a 1 1/2 hour. Only needing a small screw driver, "glue was included with the kit" but i used 15 minute expoy on mine's. Now after being amazed at how fast the "RTF' "Ready To Fly" kit went together, I found myself at my local flying field with the flying field all to myself, ready for the maiden flight of the Skyline 182 in just about over 2 hours. The skyline 182 flew like a true champ, just as well as any of my other planes. I did loops, spins, low passes, slow passes, fast passes, touch and goes, there was plenty of power. My maiden flight was almost a 8 minute flight with still power left as I could tell the plane never felt week while flying, after recharging my li-po battery, I had only used up 1100 mAh, which Im guesssing I could have flow for about another 3 to 4 minutes easy and still landed with battery juice. I have everything on video to show just how nice and scale the Skyline 182 looks while it flys and will fly.

In closing the new Nitroplanes.com FMS Scale Skyline 182 Trainer is perfect for the first time flyer and beginners. It's one of the best EPO Foam Scale Planes out there at the same time with good performance while flying at a low speed, while still doing areobatics such as loops, rolls, inverted passes. and with a high scale look as well. Very easy to assembly, and highly recommed for the first time flyers & beginners of most ages.

I hope this model will bring you to a good experience into the flying hobby.

Now Lets Just Show How Fast The Skyliner Goes Together, By Only Using 15 Minute Epoxy For Glueing On The Elevator And Rudder Section And A Small Screwdriver For The Wings.
