RE: CMP Cessna 182 Building Thread>the best scale Cessna 1.20 size ARF that is on the market!!!

Hi,

I have yet to come across a CMP kit that had no major faults. The stock hardware is poor, they normally get the CG or wing incidence wrong and not unusual to have two kits of the same model...

RE: Top Flite Cessna 182 build

I am sure I am going to have great fun building this one, since I learnt to fly full size on a Cessna (albeit Cessna152) they are no doubt the world favourite.

Hi,

I haven't chosen the glass cloth, as for the thickness, I am not sure the exact thickness but it's very light and very fine the type used for glider wings.

RE: Top Flite Cessna 182 build

Looks like I found the answer, once I looked at the plans again, it became clear that they have used a Robart Dummy Oleo Strut and not the actual oleo nose gear. ( I guess I will keep it for some...

RE: Seagull Yak?

Hi,

It's nothing to do with not having enough flex, if you look close you will find that they have used hot glue to bond the gear plate in place and also the surfaces it glues itself on is not...

RE: Seagull's "Dual Ace"

Hi Bo,

If using two Gyros you need to use Hobbico “Aero Gyro” or the Futaba GYA351 (FUTM0817) which supports 2-channel input and output for a single axis. This is because most Gyros will...

I used to have one and after modifying the wing incident it was somewhat flyable, but still a pig to fly. Flew more like a pregnant duck.

Just my two pennies worth, it makes no difference which way up you balance, it's the case of preference and what each individual finds easy.

RE: Seagull Yak?

The main reason for loosing any control surface is normally due to flutter at high speed caused by too much play in the linkage. Although sealing the ailerons may reduce the risk, it will not...

Something that all Yak owners should be aware of is the weakest point in that model is the undercarriage where it's bolted on to the fuselage.
