Default PICA Cessna 182

I am building this PICA kit. I calls for a .40 to .60 2 stroke. I am thinking about a Saito 80 Golden Knight 4 stroke. Any thoughts.
Thanks,
Vic

RC Report reviewed one several years ago and it weighed over 13 pounds. They used an OS 1.08. Your .80 might be a little small??

Default Not A Problem

The 80 has more than enough power to fly that 182. I'm using the 80 in my TF Corsair with no problems.

This is not a very big airplane. It does not look like it needs a lot of power. I have an OS 90 that I could put in it but I thought I would keep the weight down with a smaller engine. How does the finsished kit fly? Do you have flaps? Got any pics?

Do you have this kit or know anyone who does?

Ooops, My mistake......you are considering the smaller version, not the one with a wingspan of 84 inches. In the review of the larger version, the flaps were very effective.

Default PICA Cessna

Took my Cessna out for her maiden voyage. The grass at our field was pretty thick and tall but the Saito 80 pulled it quite well down the runway. I had to throttle back to less than 1/2 half throttle for realistic flight. Although this is a high wing, trainer looking plane, she is very fast and will do loops and rolls very well. The flaps work well on landing to slow the plane down. This is a keeper.

The big Pica 182 has a wingspan of 87 in not 84 in and calls for a .90 2s or 1.20 4s. I have one in my workshop that I just finished building.

I don't think anybody picked up on it here, but Pica makes a 1/5 and a 1/6 scale 182 Cessna

Mine is over-powered with a OS 61 in it, flys like a racer.
