    @RCRedBaron Thnaks. Ig G20 fits, G26 will as this is the same cranckase will modified cylinder and bore… This information is good for me… Did you tried will litlle wind ? I plan to build an FPV plane so the more stable it will be, the more satisfied i’ll be too…

    @lothar2048 : I wish I had the answer for you, but I ran mine off electric motor and didnt even look at nitros or gasser power for this bird. If you’ve read that the G20 fits, I would check the mounting specs on the G26 versus the G20. I can tell you that the inside of the cowl, theres not a terrible amount of room under there. Good Luck to you and thanks for watching.

    Hi there, I was wondering if a zenoah G260 could fit in ? I have this engine left…
    Some says that the G20 fits perfect, so i’m a little bit scared…
    Thanks for helping.

    @RCRedBaron I appreciate the attention, thank you for help, so settle everything and could fly, I report to you! Thanks

    @silasraraujo : Sorry for late reply, didnt see your last post till now. It does fly Very Scale, and it can fly very fast, although, I like to keep a medium speed for more scale flying. This is one plane that doesnt need to be flown fast, aerobatic or with other stunts. Its the kind of plane you want to fly slow, scale and deliberate. Thanks!

    @silasraraujo Friend just one more question! The Cessna was fast, and flies very scale? Thanks

    @silasraraujo : 16×10 wood.

    @silasraraujo What prop are using?

  9. RCRedBaron on August 18th, 2010 12:12 pm

    @silasraraujo : When I run my turnigy 50-65 400KV motor on 6cell 5000mah, Im getting 15 to 20 minutes of flight easily. But, I fly for 8 to 10 minutes, land, take a smoke break, and fly again for another 8 to 10 minutes on the same battery. Havent had any issues at all on this plane or motor/battery combo.

    Good Day Friend, I bought a cessna identical to yours, and bought a Turnigy 63-64 motor to be more
    potent, but gave me bad, I put a battery of 6S 5000mah and the plane ran out of power,
    I wonder if this engine is using that power was left, how many percent of
    engine that you fly all the time, takes off with little clue? helice which they are using and the time
    flight, look, thank you

    Absolutely beautiful clip and nice music. Well done.

    I am jealous now, that is one nice plane. I may get the 182t from BananaHobby, I can’t afford the Top Flite one. That and would be a little too much for a first plane, I would cry if I wrecked that thing.

    I just added a Direct Link to the Cessna 182 on my Website RCREDBARON. It has complete motor, battery, watts, amps, weight, etc on it. But, for quick reference, the motor is a Turnigy 50-65 400kv Outrunner. 80amp Turnigy plush ESC, and I’m running qty 2, 3cell 5000Mah 30C Lipo batts, run in series to make a 6cell 5000mah lipo. A single 6cell batt will not fit with the scale cockpit installed.

    Beautiful flight and video! What are the specs on your battery and motor setup? Hey, that first takeoff was amazing. Ground roll of what, 10 feet? Nice job!

  15. PatBALEX on August 18th, 2010 2:59 pm

    Nice!! Beautiful plane!! Good flying…

  16. RCRedBaron on August 18th, 2010 3:02 pm

    Not hard to build, just time consuming. Thanks for viewing and commenting

  17. Helipro3218 on August 18th, 2010 3:16 pm

    Was the plane hard to build.

  18. tjtg on August 18th, 2010 4:13 pm

    Nice. the initial footage where you spool up the motor – it sounds like the real prop wash. Probably the wooden prop. Sweet model.

  19. cholubaz on August 18th, 2010 4:22 pm

    Love the plane man. What do you have in her for Battery and power plant? 12lb wow

    This was a nice flight. I have the FlyZone Cessna 182 SkyLane Select, but I have yet to fly it like you flew yours.

  21. SkyNinja81 on August 18th, 2010 4:34 pm

    SO…when do we get to see the Side door open and a skydiver jump out?? I know it’s in the works ;).

  22. vladimir1206 on August 18th, 2010 5:13 pm

    ok, then u r not the guy who works in hobbytown usa. anyway nice flying and u sure got lots of rc airplane!

  23. RCRedBaron on August 18th, 2010 5:47 pm

    Im so sorry to hear about the Nose In. I use a bit of flap to help with the slow approach and keep lift. I’ve done my fair share of wave offs before feeling the right landing coming on.

    Live in Orlando Florida.

  25. vladimir1206 on August 18th, 2010 6:13 pm
