My neighbor had wanted a plane that could provide something more than the 5~7 teasing minutes of barely-able-to-climb that his Parkzone J-3 Cub offered up. It so happened, that he bought a used Hobbico Cessna 182 from a relative of his, earlier in 2010. Using the older stock NiMh pack and a damaged direct-drive brushed 380 motor with a slightly bend shaft unwillingly swinging a 7x3 2-blade propeller, it didn't have enough RPMto lift off the ground. So, one day while visiting him, and I said I was ordering some parts from Hobbyking and would be happy to select the components and convert the plane over to brushless & Lithium polymer power. He took up the offer, and now I want to share how I did it/ This might provide some ideas for anyone out there who has wanted better climbing power or speed, but wasn't sure where to begin. It will provide longer flights and good performance. Read on by clicking on the Comments...
