BP Sheng Teng C182?

This one looks awfully similar to the Hobby-Lobby one and has almost exact dimensions like wing span and length.

Anyone know if they are made from the same Chinese factory?

Interesting....they are offering more and more Foam models with complete setups.

Have you looked at the SkyMaster EP?

At 50 inch wing span with 9 Round 4/5A cells (1800mAH) it tips the scale at 44 oz. and you should look at the Video, just awesome!

That twin will probably rock! I ran the twinjet in brushed 400's with sub c packs and it was amazing for a brushed motor. The thing is wired and all, just plug the $50 esc in rx and go. Cool to see a pusher puller elecric finally. I may have to get one.

The 337 is a good flyer, but forget the C-182. Toyish looks and lack of performance on a geared 380 motor.

If you want a good looking and great performing cessna go with parkflyers.com

I don't think this C-182 is that bad compared to the parkflyer.com (ART-Tech) C-182. At least it has the scale struts and better nose wheel. (The ART-Tech one has no wing struts and non-steerable nose wheel). Powerwise I think they should perform about the same, with the ART-Tech one more sports oriented with smaller wing and direct drive 480 and the Hobby-Lobby one more trainer oriented with bigger wing and geared 400.

I'd guess by looking at both pages and considering HL's catalog numbers usually hint at the manufacturer's name that they are the same plane. BP sells the airplane only and the RTF, and HL is selling one in between, with servos installed.
