sorry to hear yours has passed away...

i'm so glad i got mine back... just flew this evening for 20 minutes on a 4S 3000mah... i love this bird, a real joy to fly
since strengthening the main undercarriage i've not had any issues whatsoever
oh, i did epoxy glue the main wings though, they were getting a bit loose from branches rubbing for the 3 weeks she was stuck in the tree tops...

i reckon if i ever total this cessna, i'd get another one

Does anyone know of a US supplier of "Super Flying Model" airplanes? I want to order their EP-39 Cessna 185 made of Elapor foam. The only supplier I can find is Top RC Model out of New Zealand and shipping is more than the airplane.

I found a second supplier out of Singapore - http://www.jethobby.com.sg/cgi-bin/e...34&idx=1&gid=1 - and the manufacturer in China. Any suggestions on a U.S. supplier? Any help is appreciated - Thanks!

supposed to be a later version than mine, i replaced all electronics but has been the best olde faithful bird out of my fleet... i paid under $100AU for my version 1, the extra $85 over mine may be justified, you'd have to ask the question

Try this vendor. Nice airplane, but not so nice customer service. After you buy it, you need to assume you are on your own.

Even if I total this 182 I'd replace her
She's such a joy to fly
And the thing I love about it is being a tail dragger with the main wheels so far forward, now that I've strengthened the mains I can easily fly from almost any roughly mown lawn
I've setup my LR RC gear on her, almost finished mounting my camera gear, very soon to fpv :-D
She'll be great for fpv coz I can go to friend's properties and fly from lawns... Versatility 2nd only to hand launched birds
I have a durafly Spitty, 2 x P51's etc, the Cessna has well proven herself amongst my hanger!
