Default Cessna needs more power - help

Hi,

I fly a parkflyers . com cessna 182-4ch plane.

-I heard with larger diameter wheels it might be possible to take off and land on grass . has any of you fixed a bigger wheel?

-I fly with the stock 7 cell battery . The power is low . I heard an extra cell for additional power will make huge difference, Is it worth it to go for a 8cell battery? How about Li-po? If I did will my electronics handle it?

Please share your experience with this cute plane and advice what type of battery with what specs (Nimh, lipo, mah? voltage? etc)I can get and where, costs etc

Thanks much, and may you never crash your plane!

Come visit our Art-Tech Cessna thread, most of us are running Brushless Outrunners now and have done all the hard work getting it right.

And unlike some people we are glad to help
