What size prop adapter is the 55" 182 3 blade prop? I found a 5mm prop adapter from HZ if that fits it..

Oh no! What happened? Hope it wasn't the electronics cause i was going to fly mine stock+BEC. It should be here by fri and now I'm a bit worried. Is there a reason you aren't getting the http://www.nitroplanes.com/93a300-14...-blue-kit.html and fixing her up (besides money of course)?

Don't want to jinx it but i might be interested in your parts next week, assuming I even get a test flight - seems like it's been raining in Ohio for a month straight. I went a little crazy and ordered the new P-51 at the same time, but I'm not even going to touch it til I any bugs worked out on the Cessna. Any tips?

Wednesday got in 4 more flights. Now she is flying fine with flaps deployed.
Using Spektrum DX8
4 sec speed on flaps:
15 degrees with 18 % on elevator
Full Flaps with 22% on elevator

Flies the approach just like a real 182.

Adjusted the Elevator to 90% travel and now get a very nice flair for landing, keeping the none wheel off until slowed.

I really like this plane and it gets lots of compliments from others at the flying field.

Please send me more information on your Cessna 182,RC,foam

Dear Leo Hou,

I'm interested in your product(s)
1400MM Cessna 182
Upgraded Cessna 182 is coming to knock them out!

Is there someone in the USA that sells this plane.

I cannot find anyone who sells this new version with the Lights Flaps, and the USA N#.

Nitro planes has 2 but they are not exactly like your red model.

Please let me know!

Neil

I got mine from electrified hobbies on ebay.~$160.00 RTF Good seller from Lake Havasu. Hope you found one. Good plane. Not the fastest but is a good steady flyer with flaps.The lights are pretty cool on channel 6 but I cannot toggle them on & off. They stay on.

Airfield delivers some nice quality foam. If you fly off a grass field, I recommend replacing the stock wheels with 2.5" Dubro's. The nose gear is also a weak point which I think you will see mentioned on other posts about this plane. I changed that also to the std. Dubro steerable nose gear. You lose the nice looking wheel pants but it's not a beauty contest out there especially, with your 1st or second plane.

The only other weakness is the prop and spinner. I took off the fake chrome plastic spinner. The steel one looks good enough.

Put slices in the foam and then install fiber hinges. I had to do this on a few of my foamies...Works great.. Be sure and use foam safe ca !
