For Sale
CMP 50 Cessna 182 Electric Conversion

I am selling my all but new CMP Cessna 182 to make room for a new project. I just finished this bird last week as an electric conversion with a Turnigy SK4260-500 up front and a 6s 4000 30C pack for the volts. This plane has 4 flights on it, zero crashes, zero abuse. I built it on a whim but flying "scale" turned out to not be my thing (I would rather fly EDF's). This plane flies great, is way over powered (scale flight is 1/4 to 1/2 power and I get 11 minutes on a charge), it has no bad habits, stall straight ahead and lands fast unless you roll the flaps then its a pussycat. That said it is NOT a trainer or 3D bird but if you want scale, this is it. I am asking $299 RTF (minus transmitter) or $250 and I keep my batteries and receiver but the rest is complete. I am also open to trades in the EDF form. It has JR full size digital servos (full size) for all but the flaps where it has normal ones, 80A ESC with BEC, 6 ch DSM2 receiver, flaps, and I added a scale light kit from RC Lander. I have changed the nose gear strut as I read the "stock" one was weak. I am also including an extra 13 X 8 wood prop and an extra brand new spun aluminum spinner. As this thing is large and heavy I will not ship but may meet you if its not to far. BTW, this bird is fiberglass and wood, not the "foamy" version. Thanks

EDIT: The airplane has wing struts, I did not have them installed when I took the pics

I have received a few PM's about shipping this plane. I have never sent anything this big and am not sure how I would do it. The wingspan is 5 1/2' long.

Any thoughts? If I do the one purchasing would have to pick up the packing/shipping fee.

I am going to attempt to build a crate tomorrow. Looks like Grey hound will run about $80 average.

Cessna

Any chance you will be doing a flight stop up at Scott AFB anytime soon? I might be interested if you could stow her away. I'm retired military and live 10 min from SAFB.
