Wattage Cessna 195

Here's an interesting item on Hobby People's website! It's listed as using a Cobalt 400. It's "on order", meaning I suppose it's not released yet. They also mention a Cessna 165 Airmaster, but with no picture. Anybody have more info?

The wing has miniscule dihedral, so I'm guessing it has ailerons. It begs for an Outrunner Brushless to sit in that radial cowling...

Looks good I just wish that they did not make you buy it with their sub par cobalt motor.

I hate to pay for stuff in a kit that I will not use.

There's also an ad for a Cessna 165 Airmaster, using a 370 motor, no picture posted yet. Can anyone state the difference between the 165 and the 195? They look real similar in photos...

The c-165 was of tube and fabric construction and used a Warner scarab 7 cylinder of 145 hp. Although the basic planform was the same, the Cessna 195 use a Jacobs engine up to 300 hp and was of all aluminum construction. The 195 was the last in the line that started with the c-34 then went to the c-37, c-38, c-145, c-165, c-190 and then the 195. It had room for 5 people, where the tube a fabric versions were a snug fit for 4.

Hi Yogorilla, they are available from Modelflight here in Adelaide,cost was $189. All you need extra is a 7x4 APC prop, and electronics.

I have purchased the Stearman. Traded the Cobalt motor for a brushless and 2s2p lipol batt. Nearly finished and will keep you posted

Which motor ?
a mate flew the stearman with a little mega 16/15/6 on a 3s2p pack

nice, until the pack had a problem and the whole lot went up in a ball of flames
