Default Best 4 CH Cessna???

HI all,

looking to step up to a 4 channel cessna model after having great fun with my hobbyzone aerobird!

Was wondering if anyone had an opinion on the best value for money cessna out there? after looking around I'm favouring the Art-Tech model I think but wondered if you guys had any advice before parting with my hard earned cash.

Many Thanks!!!

Richards5913,

The Art-Tech Cessna is the same plane that is sold in the USA under the ParkFlyers brand. While somoe people love this plane, many others have had a lot of problems with it. The two things that almost everyone agrees on is that the electronics are junk and need to be replaced immediately, and that the wing is very fragile and needs significant reinforcement. From that point, opinions differ. Some say that the plane flies great. Others, like me, couldn't get it to get off the ground. I spent almost three times its original cost to try to get it to fly. I was determined not to give up. I was finally able to get it to fly, but it never flew well for me and I ended up trashing it. I suggest that you check out the Cessna from HobbyLobby and the Cessna from E-flite.

If you are looking for good Cessna, check out the E-Flite Cessna 182. It is probably the best in the foamie category.
