i just bought an airfielf cessna 182 same wingspan and i was impressed on the build, only things i had a problem were 1. the back fuselage came broken while being shipped i guess( i glued it no problem) 2. one of the main wheels were warped and the plane bounces while rolling 3. the set screw for the nose gear is cheap and the aluminum strut gets stripped before i can even tighten it. besides those 3 issues the plane is very impressive for a foamy. Tell us how the stuka arrives and what problems you encounteres ( if any).

Default RE: Airfield Stuka 1400mm

I have two of these. I will explain the problematic areas so others will just enjoy the great flying aircraft that it is. The flaps, and ailerons: Check your hinges. they are glued on over the paint, and are often worked loose over time. An easy fix is to drill and pin them from the bottom with CA, and toothpicks. The Prop: Each blade is held on with two smal screws, which can come loose easily if the model noses over, or just from vibration with normal use. II drilled out the holes, and installed 4-40 bolts with self-locking nuts. I had to clearance the cowl, but the confidence in the prop is worth it. I also did the same to the motor mount, adding washers, too. All you do is remove the scoop under the nose (carefully, but easily done) and access the backside of the bolts from there. Also, sometimes the mount plate seems to not be glued in well, so I wick some gorilla glue in there while I am there. The ESC: Many have had issues with the stock ESC buring up, and sometimes taking the BEC with it, resulting in an uncontrolled crash. Not good. I installed a 60 amp OPTO ESC (no BEC) and added a 5A UBEC separate, so even if the ESC quits, you have control of the servos, and MAY land. The tailwheel: Often, the bolt will unscrew while taxiing! An easy fix is to put the bolt in from the opposite side, so that ant rotation tightens, instead of loosens it. I love flying these,as they can be slowed down, and just enjoyed in scale form, but if you want, power is always on tap to do some great vertical!!! One tip: This plane's aileronsaren't particularly effective, so add in a but of that huge rudder, and it rolls just fine!Metalguy

Did you have or find any issues with the undercarriage?

Treasure this plane! as there are no more production for it!
I've sniff all the hobby shop in my country and none of them have this even FMS!
