Default Wattage Cessna 180 Help

I have found a really nice RTF 4 channel rc plane on HobbyPeople.com, but its sold out and should not be avalible till late november
URL: http://www.hobbypeople.net/gallery/128309.asp

I'd like to know if the Wattage Cessna 180 RTF is avalible anywhere else so I can get it fairly soon.
Thanks

It's a new product, just announced.

Hobby People will be the first ones to have it, because they are the sales arm of Global Hobby Distributors, who also own Wattage.

Don't try the Cessba 180 with the original set up, There is a lot of planes out there way better for the money. It'll make a nice static model but that is all it's good for, good luck.

I just got a cessna 180 for fun, it rocks was flying it in the cul-de-sac this afternoon (DONT RECCOMMEND IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO FLY)

The radio is OK you have to add 8 AA bats which isn't as nice as rechargable, its a 27 MHz which means you wont get the range that you would want with a bigger airplane, I wouldn't reccommend this radio for anything but the cessna and or corsair planes from watt-age.

Hobby People is now listing the Cessna 180 as "in stock". I can personally reccommend the GWS Kits as well, they are great flyers. I like the Wattage Decathlon but by the time you purchase the motor etc..the GWS aircraft are a much better deal for the money. The E-Starter is good flying as is the Beaver. I've flown them both and own an E-starter as well as an Me-109, Tigermoth and Islander. I just put flaps on my Islander and posted a thread in this forum for the procedure. The Tigermoth is an excellent trainer but unfortunately is limited to very calm days. It flys very slow and provides the pilot with plenty of reaction time. It's fun to fly low once you become proficient. Good luck :-)
