Is this question directed at me? If so, I don't have the bird yet as it is currently in the process of being built. Generally I don't ever sell any of my birds as they end up being part of my family, akin to selling a child. If you are still interested in purchasing mine when it arrives, you will have to be prepared to shell out more than 100 times the price of what Tmmy is selling heirs for...

A couple of notable changes have been made on this 2 generation Cessna that I would like to share with future owner's. The fuselage no longer comes in two pieces like it did before. I am told that this is a better design but I beg to differ on this one. Also I have requested the rudder linkage be made internal much like the bigger 157" version or the first generation to keep it scale as possible.

Lastly, it will also be nice to have the flap hinges scale fowler flaps just like the 157" version. Have requested for this setup and will report back when any more updates are received.

So I just received the Cessna 182 and I will admit I bit off more than I can chew. This bird is too big for the engine I have and with that I will be offering this up for sale. Here are some teaser pictures.

Are there currently any builds going on that folks would want to share? I am contemplating a modification of the new one piece fuselage by cutting an access panel underneath the tailcone part of the airplane. In essence I wish to have easy access to servos for the rudder, elevators and also possibly store a light control unit and an air-tank for main landing gear breaks. It certainly would not be an easy undertaking but can be beneficial if done right.

I have been wondering why mine did not come with the wood-kit for the engine box. Did you get a wood-kit with yours?

no wood kit. they said they will send it. when you start your build you will have to grind out where the nose gear goes as it hit the fire wall . also the floor move by the rear elev servo mount is in the floor moves a lot. you will also need to get long bolt for your wheels and the nose gear as the bolts in my kit where way to short.i have bought a lot of over sea jets and for the money for this kit was a rip off as i would have never bought. I hope you kit is better.if they would have spent a little more time on the kit it could be worth the 2000. + the 900 to ship.

My kit is just like yours in build quality and like you, I initially thought it was not a kit worth the amount I paid for. I opted to go with the fowler flap setup and the fowler assembly metal components are made out of weak aluminum. It was constructed by hand so its not really uniform compared to each other. There are four of them, two for each flap. Also why they decided to go from a two piece fuselage to a one fuselage beats me. Could have made the assembly process much easier especially for the servos for the elevators and rudder. I have not started my build yet so I shall comment more when I start.

I also emailed Steve at Austars to inquire about the wood kit engine mount box. I am yet to receive a response.

well today i got my new windshield that as cracked during shipping, I also asked for the wood for the engine mounting and still never got them . i started on the main wing and was going to glue in the hinges but the hinge hole are way big , i will have to fill all the holes with wood and glue and then re drill all holes to get a good fit,when I'm done with this plane it will be great ! but I will never buy another one or tell people what a good kit it is. for $2900.00 it should have no defects for the time you have to wait..

I totally agree with you. My kit included the scale fowler flaps and opening cowling for easy access to the engine. The cowl was cut to my satisfaction but the fowler flap assembly looked like it was cutout by hand. The aluminum braces look so unprofessional its not even funny. I paid an additional $200.00 for my opening cowl plus shipping.

I would like to see pictures of your build as you iron all the kinks out. As for the supplied fuel tank, I would not use it as it is way too big for the engine I intend on powering the plane with.

Its been about two months since I requested to have the wood engine box sent out to me and to date I have nothing. It almost feels like once they have your money, its a over and done with the customer.
