Art-Tech Cessna 182 & Flyzone skyfly

This is a video of my first two electric rc planes The Art-Tech Cessna 182 & the hobbico Skyfly. I have been flying them for about a month now, and I pretty much got the hang of it. This is just some clips of me flying them at home. This video is a little shakie because my son was recording.

Thanks guys!! Yeah, the cessna 182 handles very nice. I crashed it the first two times I flew it because it was very sensitive to the controls compared to the skyfly. But after that it was smooth sailing. Good luck with yours.

I'm pretty new to RC Planes but my chiledhood dream came true latly.
I bought my first Cessna 182 about 2 months ago I've crashed it a few times but the last one was a total destruction.
Now I'm building my second one learning from the first plane.If you have any suggestion for a begginer please let me know

Welcome to the hobby. You seem to be progressing well! Those cessna's look quite scale in the air as well as being a e good bang for your buck.
I repowered one about a year ago with a BP21 and 2200x3s lipoly. Now it will nearly climb vertically and flight times are 30 mins or so. You can use the same prop with the odd adaptor that comes with the cessna.

I set this plane up for a beginner and found the std setup too twitchy. Try reducing the throws a bit. Also,remember that height is your friend. You will find that generally when you crash you are too close to the ground !!
Keep it up 50 meters (yards) or more if you can. It gives you a few more seconds to recover or figure things out if you wiggle a stick in the wrong direction.
When I was learning, I was amazed (many times!) how quickly a plane can go from totally in control to totally in the ground!

Good flying

Hi guys, i am just about to get the artech cessna 182 4ch RTF but am a bit unsure about what is comes with. Have heard that a simulator and usb cable are include. Is this the case for all of them or just from a specific shop?

rubber planes won't break

Nice flying have you tried right turns? lol

Hi Todd, I sent you a PM hopefully you will see it.

I am waiting for the arrival of my C182. Did you use the flight simulator that came with it? and if you did , do think it was helpful?

I was trying to decide on between the skyfly and C182 and decided on the C182, 1. because it looks cooler and more realistic, and 2. it really looks like it would fly easier than the skyfly.

Nice flying. Highlight of the video for me was about 50 seconds in when you asked your son if he got the low fly by on camera and he responds nonchalantly, "Um hum". LOL Maybe I'm overreacting but I found that funny as all get out!

WOW!! I thought this thread died a few weeks after I started it. Anyway, thanks for all of the great feedback everyone. Also, I still have both planes and just got done about eight flights today with my skyfly. I must say, I favor that cheap little skyfly over the cessna 182. I pretty much mastered that little plane. I just wish there was some hop-up motors for it. I also bought a Parkflyers Edge540T that I flew a couple of times (crashed).

I have a 4ch version. Wasn't overly impressed with the single aileron servo and wire pushrod,so I have fitted 2 servos and they work fine. It is a little sluggish for me,so I am in the process of fitting a 2836-1700kv outrunner to it.I will use a 8x6 Master airscrew on it .Hopefully,this setup will give it a bit more urge to get it airborne quicker.
This is a great little aircraft to have in the back of my car so that I can stop off at the local sports field on my way home from work and have a quick fly.

hi i have actually just found one of tese in the dunes at my local beach and it was missing the main wing and the tail/rudder had a par snapped off of i. i looked for someone but noone was around so now i have it. i had to swap the recievers. but every thing works and i scored a third battery but it was nimh so i am trying to find a way to fit my lipo 11.1v 900mah battery in it. that is what i tested thhe electonics with. this is my very first plane that i will fly but i have built a depron F-22 and now i am going to wait on that and learn with the way it is the art tech cessna 182 and im pretty sure it the 4 channel but im not sure because i dont have the main wing but by the looks and sounds of it i think it is. does any one know were i could get parts for this plane.
