Default RE: Top Flite Cessna 182 Skylane Build

It took me 3 years and roughly 300 hours of off and on again work to finish mine. I scaled mine out with the robart strut, cockpit kit, and RAM nav lights. Water based poly fiberglass, and PPG automotive paint to finish it. She weighs about 14 pounds, and is powered with a Magnum 91 4s. I take off from grass, so I use full throttle on take-off, but usuall put around the sky at 1/2 throttle or so. Great flying plane, and make sure to build in the optional flaps. They are worth the work. Have fun!
