New Airfield Cessna 182 skytrainer


I seriously am almost speechless on this new Cessna we received last Thursday. The amount of scale detail that Airfield put into this plane was just wonderful, and im not just saying that cause I work for NP. Every time we receive a new model from Airfield it just gets better and better. They went ahead and installed full scale lighting on this model as well as add functional flaps and even a pilot! B4 i worked here i was an all nitro guy when i started seeing the detail put into these foam models i was impressed, and im saying this from a modelers prospective. I cant wait to fly it and do the review for you guys, remember this is sample not production model. I loved how they even included zip ties and fuel line for control arm Be sure to let me know what you guys think and sorry if i seem to excited!! HAHA Here are a few pics for all you guys, the plane speaks for itself.

Very nice indeed. Compound curve windscreen, door hinges and has the correct look. How big? How heavy? Not an ARF man myself, but this one is worth a closer look.

Looks really nice, I think the top of the nose is a bit too square but other than that, I can't see anything I would change, The wheel pants and spinner are SWEET.

Is this an update of this plane?: http://www.nitroplanes.com/93a182-sk...g-v3-blue.html

Flaps, cockpit, new front nose gear, good things.

Excellent video, no hokey background music, exellent flying. Model performance very impressive. Will there be a version without transmitter and receiver?

This looks REALLY nice and I've always been happy with any Airfiled I've gotten!
Does that front nose wheel actually have some damping action or is that just for show?

I'm fairly impressed. Nice flying and a very nice looking bird. Needs to available W/O the Tx/Rx though. I 'kinda' wished it had the same scheme as my GP 65" Cessna. This scheme is sorta-kinda like the old Hyperion 10e Cessna and I never really got to like it, even though I have one. I'm really glad to see this bird in this size, I think you'll have a winner. Any way to access/change out the motor. (Just in case.)
