Mine is still flying strong 1 year and 9 months later.. Airframe is holding up well with no major incidences. Still love flying just as much as the first day.

SimLab,
Nice video, love the flaps. Where did you get the servo delay from?

Happy New Year everyone...

The delay looks good. I have set my Futaba 12FG with 3 Conditions: a) Take off, b) Cruise, c) Landing. For each condition I have programmed the radio to set different flaps, configure the lighting, and alter control surface rates etc etc. So on landing I deploy the flaps nice and slowly, but have max throw on up elevator with 90% expo, and have landing lights switched to full. In cruise mode I then have another set of rates, and flaps are at neutral.

I have also set up a left hand slider to trim the elevator for intial test flights, because when trimming I have found it less stressful to be holding on to the elevator stick (Mode 2) and then trying to adjust the trims in flight at the same time. The left slider is very easy to get to, rather than trying to feel for the correct trim switch.

Do full flaps (30 Deg) require any elevator compensation?

Cheers
Matt

Hey Matt,

Those are some great ideas. I have been morning the loss of my big 182 for the last week, but it went to a good home!! I was at our local flying field last week. One of our “Snow Birds” saw my 182 in the front of my big trailer and asked if he could look at it. I said yes and it was all over after that…… He asked me what I would take for it. I thought for a moment, I really did not want to sell it. I through out a ridicules figure thinking he would say he did not want it for that price but he did not even blink!!

He just started counting out $100.00 dollar bills on my work bench in the trailer. When he was sure that he had counted out my asking price, he asked if I was sure that was enough. In a stunned voice I said “Yup” and he and the big Cessna were gone! Ok so moving on…..

I am not totally cretin but I think that I may have just received the last one of these big Cessna’s in the states. So I am now back to building one more but I want to dress this one up for Scale Masters. Does anyone know where I might be able to get an interior kit for this big girl? I plan to repaint it with a totally different color scheme too.

By the way I found the three blade prop from one of my suppliers so I am good to go there.

Het Joe,
Was his name Al from California?
I had a similar experience when I sold my Howard DGA.

Hi Captmicom
I am not sure if that is congratulations or commiserations! Whatever, you have a nice challenge in front of you... I am not sure if you have experience of the interiors kit - but my view is that it is rubbish, and now I understand what they have done - basically a floor and some cabin lining, with the seats, I would make up the interior myself. I ended up mounting the thin abs floor on 1/8th plywood, because there was so much flex the seats wobbled all over the place. The cabon lining is a poor fit to the windows and I am thinking that I will need some thin extruded gasket/ fillet type material to make a decent abutment.

So if I were to make a lining I would do so from thicker plastic card and some balsa rails to frame the window and fix the card to. At least then one could add more realism too, for a 'stand-off' scale look. I appreciate that it is more work, but I guess it depends on how much time you woud wish to commit to it?

I have been working on mine, on and off for the last year, and it is now complete apart from some small odd bits. However, the UK is being lashed by one storm after another, and torrential rain - it has beenn like this for weeks here in the south west. So I may not get to fly her for a while yet, for fear of sinking into a foot of mud!

Finally, I ended my last post with a request for advice on compensating trim requirements for the elevator when at full flaps? What was you experience of this? Was any required?

My next project is an Aeroworks 50cc Ultimate with a Roto 85FS up front. ..."I so love the smell of petrol (as opposed to napalm - if you ever saw the film) in the mornings!!'

Cheers
Matt

Hi folks,

I`m collecting mine on Saturday and will use a z62 with floats and retracts to make it amphibious. Just had an email from Wendel H to suggest his own build up and that National Balsa have a 60" float kit. Anyone any experience of anything similar?

Cheers,

Hello
Does anyone know where I can buy this model in Europe? ASM distributor in Europe, the company Ripmax has withdrawn it from sale.
Maybe somewhere it can still be found?

Hey all,

I've just been given an Advanced Scale Models Cessna 182. It's just the bare airframe however it has had a bit of an acident.

Basically the previous owner had a dead stick moment just after take off and she hit the deck. It brok the undercarriage out of it and damaged the firewall in the process.

My question is has anyone ever worked on one of these planes and done repairs on them. The fuselage is some sort of plastic type material and i'm not 100% sure about repairing it.

The bottom of the fuse has some big cracks and the like in it. I have thought about taping up the outside and then fiberglassing the inside. Then using body filler on the outside to fill in the cracks.

What do you think. Have you got any advice.

My other concern is getting replacement landing gear. ASM either doesn't exist any more or they just don't make this one anymore so parts are pretty scarce or just none existant.

I've got a set of Wendell Hostler plans for the same plane/same size but they recommend Sierra Giants from leg but that costs $250 alone. That's a bit to much for me to fatham at this point in time.

Again anyone have any ideas.

Here is a link to our club's August newsletter, where I submitted an article on replacing the ASM Cessna nose gear with a Robart large unit, needing only an adapter plate and relocation of the steering pushrod.

I also sent the info to the previous poster via PM.

Hi Matt

Helpful post on the Robart nose leg above drew me back to the thread! Somehow missed your request above. Have you flown the baby yet and is it all set up now? If not, I can let you have my mix settings. I am on JR DSX9 and using Hitec 5625 and 5645 servos so if you are too, can give exact settings!!

Hi Adrian,
Well it has not been for want of trying...every time I get near to thinking that I have finsihed, something happens! I have had a real 'love-hate' kind of relationship with it. A few other models got in the way whilst I was putting this together, but this summer (joke) I have made a big effort at getting it finsihed. BUT - firstly one of my flap servo's decided to pack up. So I had to redo that, and then I thought that perhaps I coulf have handled the linkage geometry better. I blindly followed the fixing location for the horns until I realsied that they would not liune up with the servo arm....so I refixed these and made good the holes - so fine and dandy there.

Then the nose wheel servo placement suggested by ASM did not work for me - it caused th servo to rock from side to side as on mine the servo cut out is at right angles to the line of force from the servo arm. I found that the arm started to bind on an internal bulkhead. So I decided to redo the whole linkage and re-orientate the servo with the pushrod. This now work fine, but it was such a major pain (involving cramped fingers) to sort it.

Oy yes...and then I had programmed it for the Futabe 12FG and then bought the 18MZ - so cos I could not copy over the files, I have then reprogrammed it. This is now complete - but would be very keen to have your experience on compensatory ele settings. I originally had the flaps set up on a 3 pos switch - but have now decied to use a slider for these so that I can react to changes of wind etc. I also completed running in of the FG57, so all sweet there....

BUT, then what do you know, I was checking all of my servo linkages and found thast two pastic horns had cracked on the elevators. So tomorrow I take receipt of aluminium horns (replacing all of them) and that should solve that!

And the other models....well I am just finishing an Aeroworks 50cc Ultimate ...but with a Roto 85FS flat twin in it, and a smoke system. It will be intersting to compare with the FG57. Both sound fantastic. I now have a new airfield to fly them from too - one that light aircraft fly from but in the heart of North Devon countryside - beautiful! Sio I am hoping to get to fly it over the next few weeks - all subject to weather, work and family commitments!

Anyway if you can let me have your elevator compensation settings for the flaps that woudl be great - how has you flying been with yours..any feedback issues that would help me?

Cheers
