@ Tarolog1974.

Your translation is very good, easy to understand, use wood like plywood as this is the best way. iron will be to heavy, if you use iron it will be hard to remove excess weight, using wood you can always add if needed.

Started repairing my cmp cessna 182/140.Ive read all the posts up too page 21 and glad I did.I read were there is a possible update for the rudder and now I see why while fixing the rudder hindges.nothing to glue too.so I am trying to get 3 small piece's of hard wood in place in the rudder instead of one long piece. because of wieght.want to go pull-pull on the rudder with the servo up front and "Y"shaped control rod for elevator.then I gotta go up front and put the firewall back togetherwith fiberglass. loks like the motor got ripped off.Need to build a one inch firewall box to mount my supertigre 3000 too. the motor has a big round backplate too so that will put me out to the end of the cowl with the prop backplate.I wont spare the fiberglass on the firewall repair. I was thinking of lowering the fuel tank because of the inverted motor.the front wheel settup apears stock and its not bent so this plane must have takin a nose dive on the maiden!didnt get a cowl with it.bought a used one and glad to havit!hope the pics load.....bob

Okay all-

I have searched through this thread and found several comments on folks intending on using a DLE 20 and several folks commenting that it is probably not enough engine. I happen to have DLE 20 available and it is looking for a homeI really like this plane but don't want it to be a dog (that is what I took the DLE 20 off of).

Has anyone actually put a DLE 20 on the plane and can they comment on how the plane flies, general maneuvering, prop size, etc.

Thanks much!!!

Larry

Hi there, Many have said thriugh this extensive thread that the power to weight ratio will not be enough, most mut a 26cc in, it will give the extra power to get you out of trouble if youneed it, ie abort landing. I have put a DLE 30 in mine, plenty of power and no extra weight. Please have a look through this if you would like to get a recommended engine size.
Hope this helps

I fly a GP Waco 72" ARF with a Dle 20 and it weighs 16#+. Has plenty of power. A Dle 20 would be plenty of power for this 182 and would be very scale like also. No need to fly it like a jet and hover, etc. I just bought one and it will get a Dle 20 for sure. An easy install also. All my flying friends that use the Dle 20 say it has more power than the 26's out there also. I use a 16/8 wood prop on my Waco and a 16/6 wood prop on my 1/4 scale Hanger 9 106" ws J-3 Cub also with the Dle 20 (weighs 14#'s). The J-3 fly's excellent with the Dle 20 also.



Thanks,

I have a fuji bt 24 in mine and it is a gutless pig! I hate it and wish that I would have put a 30cc in it. In fact, I am going to sell the motor soon it is hardly broke in and runs excellent but it just isn't the motor for me...

Just to continue onI am not interested in unlimited vertical or anything close to 3D. Just want to make sure that I can do some loops and rolls, immelmanns, etc type maneauvering with a 20 cc engine.

I was really hoping that there was folks out there who have actually stuck a 20 cc DLE on the plane and can talk about it.

Thanks-

Larry

Ok to continue on,
The dle and others are very light engines (which is great!). My fuji 24cc has a magneto and is heavy (about 4 lbs) and I didn't need weight up front. This plane requires alot of nose weight so with that engine, you may have to add up to 1 1/2 pounds up front to get her to balance. Wouldn't you rather have more engine up there instead of dead weight? You don't have to fly at full throttle all of the time but the power is there if you need it. Just sayin'

I agree with HUNTERANDJEFF,

 also to quote you

 "I was really hoping that there was folks out there who have actually stuck a 20 cc DLE on the plane and can talk about it"

I believe cannonball200 has already answered your question as he has stated he has put a DLE 20 in his Cessna 182

I have not flown the 182 with the Dle 20 but, I have flown the heck out of my 16 lb GP Waco arf with the Dle 20. Pics are in a few posts above as well as the 14 lb Hanger 9 1/4 scale J-3 Piper Cub. The Waco has plenty of power with the 20 and will do large loops, barrel rolls and climb great. The 182 is not going to be anywhere close to the Waco weight. I fly the Cub and Waco at about 1/2 throttle most of the time also. I'm telling you all that the Dle 20 will be plenty of power to fly the 182 with athority and will fit good in the plane. I use a 2400 nicad 6 volt for radio and a 1500 nicad 4.8 volt for engine and you can shove them as far forward as possible for balance. Just install that Dle 20 on that 182 and go fly it.

Hi asif.
If that 46 you want to use is a glow engine. I belive will not be powerfull to even get this plane rolling. I have 2 182 and I'm using Saitos4 cycle150 ,This iswhat I had availlable forpower source and they provide more than enoughf power. This is a very tail heavy plane, move all you can as far fordward as you can, balancecarefully, have your front landing gea a litle short of what it says on instructions and give about 4 degrees rake and you will have a very rewarding airplane,with a 10 degree flap forlanding she will land beatifully . Does not have any bad traits..I believe this plane was made for a 140 glow engine.
Good luck
Thanks Jose.

Hello again folks... I was talking to someone that wanted some of the plastic windows for the Giant Cessna 140, but can't remember who... I found the guy that I thought had some, and am going to see him today.,,, Please contact me or respond soon so I can get them from him before he throws them out. He got divorced and needs to get rid of his excess "inventory", as it is all in a storage unit .

It wasn't me but my windows turned yellow from gasser engine exhaust and I am going to have to replace them when I give my cessna a new paint job this winter. Also, I could use a new cowl and wingtips if he has them along with any other accy. he might have.

Hello All,
I am just finishing up my CMP 182, and since the day I purchased it, I have been in search for One of the modeled Scale Antennas that reside on top of the wing over the fuselage. One was missing in the kit and Nitroplanes has been unable to replace it for me. Anyone have a spare they would like to sell, or has anyone found a similar replacement?
Thanks in advance!
Regards,
Steve

Steve would one from the Top Flite ARF work? I recently bought a pair to use on my TF kit 9saves me some carving) so I can measure them if you like and then you can order a set from Top Flite.
