Which is better?

The apprentice is smaller then the 182 and alieron rate seems not as responsive as the 182.to me the 182 seems like a stronger plane then the apprentice

Really? I thought (I'll have ot check the specs again) the 182 was 55" and the E-FLite Apprentice was 57"... I could be mistaken though.

But either way, you are saying the 182 might be a better "second" plane to fly? How about durability in crash?

It is fairly durable. I put mine through a tree last fall. All the foam was fine. I did have to replace the cowl (it's plastic), two wing struts (also plastic), and the prop adapter. But, considering that the plane ran headlong level into the tree and then fell 15' to the ground, I'd say she survived pretty darn well

The Apprentice is a fantastic trainer. Parts are available. If to do whack it 5 minute epoxy gets it back together quick.

So how will this 182 fly with a 2 blade prop? If i look to save on some runtime, and drop down to a 11x9 or even 10x7 SF will that work?

Last week finished the maiden flight of my Sky Trainer by Airfield 55" with flaps and lights.

It is a sweet flying airplane. only 2 clicks of up needed to trim.

Flew three times with a 6 minute timer, never had to use more than 50% throttle.

Since The timer is set to only count down at above 25% throttle that equaled out to 8 minutes of flying per battery. Upon landing the batteries were reading 3.85 volts per cell.

I bought the RTF but switched it over to the DX8 so I could get some use out of the transmitter. These foam airplanes are a blast!!! This airplane has more than enough power straight from the box.

Next time out will mix some down elevator with the flaps, just like the real 182 she balloons when flaps are put down. I think by slowing down before adding flaps and some down trim it will perform just like the prototype.

I am very happy with mine.
