Fiberglass Model REview Review by paul warye

Overall

Received Cessna fiberglass/balsa model in two containers, well protected. Beautiful model, is not for starter builders. This model requires intermediate to skilled builder experience. The only negative I can comment on is the aileron and flap linkage is challenging to install. You will need to get creative. Other than that it is a well made and designed kit. I have yet to fly it but I guess it at 10 pounds. The access to the servos and battery placement is OK...but will be time consuming to manage in the field. Upon completion it is a magnificent machine to look at. A lot of eyeball for $115.00. I had 11 hours in the build....will wait for a decent day and maiden it.....new folks remember fiberglass and balsa look great...however repairs are time consuming and sometimes a light crash is the end of your plane. Overall its a great plane...beautiful! (Posted on 11/9/2016)
Sweet plane at a good price Review by Chris

I really like this plane. The pricing is unbelievable for such quality and size. I have not had it in the air yet. The build took a little more time than I expected. Generally, it went well, with the exception of the hinges supplied for the ailerons and elevator - they simply did not go on well. I replaced the hinges on the ailerons and one of the flaps because they would not line up properly (i.e. the drilled holes were off kilter a little). I was concerned that they would affect flight performance. It is a real looker and should be cool in the sky. Definitely recommend it. (Posted on 7/6/2015)

For $115 bucks you can't beat it. Great lines, paint is spot on and the versatility of electric or nitro there's none better. Eflite power 52 590kv 15x6e apc castle creations Phoenix ice 100 6s 5000 mah 25c. Enough power to fly 3D acrobatics with this 7lb aircraft. Its a screamer, and with variable degree flaps it floats in on approach like a true trainer. Easy build for a intermediate modeler, would recommend twin elevator servos instead of the supplied Y pushrod. All the available replacement parts ship quickly as I needed a new canopy due to operator error it was just a click away. Buy with confidence value hobby has been here for years.

Awesome airplane Review by Franklin

All I can say is WOW! This is a super nice model, one of the smoothest , easiest builds I have done to date and did I mention how good it looks. You will not be disappointed in this purchase. Only down side is that it came with some glue in control horns that I didn't care to trust , but it looks like that's all they cut corners on. I'd defiantly recommend this plane to others looking to buy a Cessna. I also opted for a bigger motor then recommended as I put floats on her and needed the extra power . So at this price its a great buy I just wish they had a larger 80+ " the same quality. (Posted on 12/15/2013)

This plane handles great. Great scale look. Recommended motor is to small, I'm running an o.s. .46FX nitro and I wouldn't try any smaller on a grass runway. It would be hard to get it off the ground. But as for the plane it doesn't get any better. (Posted on 10/15/2013)

Yeah is real is 100% fiberglass fuselage, painted, all parts came in different bags so you don lose nothing, the spinner came as well, so you only has to buy the electronics parts, I recommended for intermediate pilots, the construction is not super complicated but you has to pay attention to everything, fiberglass is hard but easy to break, I'm happy with my experience, my next plane will be the Mustang P-51.

For the price of many micro foam ices I received a fantastic scale rendition of a Cessna 182! All foberglass work on fuse,wheel pants and and cowling are first rate. All bulkheads properly bonded ith an absolutely beautiful paint job on fuse and cowling. No stickers! Covering and overall construction are top notch. Mine will have an O.S. 40 for power. Really looking forward to flying it! Thanks, Value!, (Posted on 3/7/2013)
