I have the SR trainer and a friend of mine has the Dynam (Nitro Planes / Banana Hobby) 182. The 182 costs more, but you get a more powerful motor and a heavier plane. The SR is a very stable flyer though. The 182 has wing struts so the wing doesn't flex as much as the SR. The 182 is probably a stronger plane and perhas a better "first aeleron" trainer. The 182 suffers with nose wheel difficulties, same as the SR. I don't want to get into 'high wing' versus 'low wing'. I choose the SR to practice landings after difficulty with my first warbird, I thought the SR might make a good low wing (and flap) trainer for warbirds. But for me, the SR trainer needs a bigger motor right out of the box. (see thread for suggestions)

They also make great jets after you crash them. I have about 4 of these planes they are just fun easy planes.

I think the sky trainer comes with lights at BH. My friend has 1 from Nitro and 1 from BH. I'm not sure what the differences are, but these are his favorite 'go-to' planes.

Seems like the only issue with these planes is weak front gear which a lot of guys replace...I have'nt heard of any motor or esc issues...I wonder how stock performance compares to dyam slightly smaller 182... thx

We have the SR22 that came with the 950kv motor & 30A ESC, even though it advertised 1100kv. We are powering it with a 2200mah 11.1v 20c lipo and have had very good luck so far. Yeah the extra power would be nice to have in reserve, but it is what it is. I added the flaps but have yet to use them, mainly because we are using a buddy box with a mix of 5 & 6 channels. The only thing I dislike about this plane is the nose gear. Very flimsy. My buddy worked it to take some of the slop out, but the whole design leaves something to be desired. All in all, it's a great flyer. I would not hesitate buying another one.

I have an Airfield/FMS Skytrainer 182 kit that I bought last year and is still in a box waiting to be built. At the time I designated it as the replacement plane for my Dynam SR because I didn't think it was going to last much longer. I was just going to transfer the electronics (all but the motor) when the SR airframe gave out. Low and behold, the SR is the plane that would never die. I beat the tar out of it and it still comes back for more. So, I may have to put the 182 plane together anyways and just fly both

They are fun and tough. My sliver one came this morning. I like them because of the price too. I use mine for things/experiments I wont use my nice models for. I install the 1100Kv motors in my and you would be surprised how much weight they will carry. As for the gear, I pull mine first thing and epoxy them in. that pretty much solves the gear issue for me.

That's great (and crazy). I'd love to see a video of this one taking off.

I'd love to see a fly-by and hear this crazy thing whenever you get a chance.
