Been awhile since I've posted on RC Universe and have been contemplating the purchase, for some time, of a TMMY giant scale 120" Cessna 182. Yesterday I sent an email to what I thought was the address for the factory in Thailand. (I really don't want to do business with any third parties/distributors, unless ABSOLUTELY necessary). Within 24 hours I received answers to my questions EXCEPT they came from some company called "Austars, guy named Steve."
Don't get me wrong as I understand there are some "language" things that lose meanings, yet "Steve" did answer my questions but I am still not COMPLETELY clear on what a customer receives from this company when ordering one of these 120" Cessna 182s.
I would GREATLY appreciate ANYONE from the USA who has actually ordered AND received one of the 120" (not the 35% one) Cessna 182. Here are my questions that were directed to the factory in Thailand...
1.What is the cost of this airplane? Base price?

2. What ALL is included in the BASE price?

3. Are there any "options" that can be purchased and what are they and cost of each? Any suggestions about what SHOULD be ordered with
this model that do not come with the base price, if there is such a thing? The reason I mention this is because their website mentions a "Version 2".
What is the Version 2? An up-graded model of the 182?

4. What does the shipping cost to the USA by boat? (I'm in AZ, and can pick up at the dock in
Long Beach or wherever the boat docks). Not interested in paying air freight, door-to-door.

5. What is the deposit when I order or do I pay for the model in full? Does the factory accept credit cards?

6. Can I select the paint design for the plane or does this cost extra? Does the paint scheme include an "N" number or is that extra?

7. What is the current time to ship from placing my order? In other words, how many weeks or months until Ireceive my plane, approximately? I am in no hurry and can wait.

8. Can I buy this directly from the factory there in Thailand? Having read several threads for these planes, evidently there are distributors
in Australia and Canada?

What else can one of you who have actually received one of these 120" Cessnas fill me in about, other than the obvious choices of engines and servos, etc.
Note, I've been flying an RC Guys 96" wingspan Cessna 150 for several years so am up-to-speed on how I imagine the 182 Cessna will fly.

Thank you in advance. Your advice and suggestions are VERY welcomed!

Hi Kim:
Thanks for your message here.
1. The reason why you got the reply from us "Austars Model" is "Austars is the co-partner for this project with Tommy Team, As the team in Thailand been busy for their local Military projects and no time to reply the emails"
2. Austars is the investor for this project, 120" Cessna 182, we paid all the molds fees etc.
3. Austars responsible for customer service/parts. Recently Jeff from USA just ordered parts from us, we passed the team, gotall and sent to him few weeks ago.
4. We replied you and said you can directly place the order from the team, the email is only for reference. Some people may like to deal with us, some might not. We have no problem for customer service as long as modellers feel happy. We explained months ago on FB and told the public now we are back and try our best to make all projects under control.

Kind regards

Youtube has some videos including the guys review for the red/white/coastguard
V2 means the version that cowl can be made openable same as the big one 157 inch.
Another magazine review by the lady from Australia can be found from our local airborne magazine.

Cheers.

Hi
not sure the engine you power the plane, for scale propeller, Biela is the best one.
There are many vendors selling Biela props, three blade is the best match,

Cheers

Due to the elevator trim tab being around the area of the elevator that is the most thinnest, means that micro servos are the only types of servos that can be used. I intend using a Futaba S3777SV that has metal gears however only nylon arms are supplied with it. If these nylon arms are used, it could cause flutter as a small amount of pressure applied on the trim tab, deflected the trim tab quite a bit. Are there any servo arms small enough to fit micro servos specifically Futaba micros?

I hope everyone is staying healthy and safe in light of this virus pandemic.

Perhaps I failed to articulate out my question properly, Teamaustars. What I was asking was for recommendations on servo arms that are metal and can be used with micro servos instead of nylon servo arms that are supplied with micros, specifically Futaba S3777SV HV servos.
Thank you.

So I have been pondering on ways to install servos for my elevator halves and rudder and thought of building a plate cradled on formers glued in the rear section of the fuselage, behind the partition in the rear cabin area. There are two servo trays glued in that section, one on the floor and the other above, I guess to control the elevators and rudder respectively. Since I intend to have each elevator half controlled by a servo, I need to alter the configuration or setup a bit. Has anyone thought of similar modification or have any ideas to install their control surface servos differently?
