Dear Friends,
its been a wonderful experience to work on this legendary plane and it felt ecstatic to watch it fly so smooth! My efforts were worth the trouble. This is a model where attention to detailing is given great emphasis, which is feel is very important aspect every aero-modeler must look at. Plus, aesthetics is not compromised at all! I have tried my level best to reach the perfection that I had in mind before starting this project.
I hope you guys liked my work so far and thanks for all your comments on my thread.

Now fasten your seat belts for a wonderful maiden flight of the CESSNA 182!

-Aditya Joshi.

i have used 10*6E Prop & 2220 KV motor with recommended prop size from 9"-11" and 40 amp esc from hobbyking. Battery used is 2640Mah 3s Lipo.
I felt the setup to be a little under powered for performing aerobotics; but is a good for leisure flight. U could use a 2600KV motor for performing aerobatics.

Dear Aditya,
This great model calls for some great decoration(Authentic).After the maiden flight you must have realized why it is said'A thing of beauty is a joy forever' I'm sure the great take off will leave nostalgic memories.

The wing span is 1530mm and AUW is about 3 kgs. ( I changed the motor now to 2800 kv and the firewall too. hence, the weight has increased drastically)

The maiden flight video was missing LANDING..actually the camera's memory got over by then. So, here i present the landing of my model. I have upgraded the motor to 2800 kv this time as the plane felt under powered during the first flight. the top part of the fuselage behind the wing has been deliberately cut into two air windows to allow free passage of cooling air.

Check out the landing, taxi and control surface show off! Smiley



Regards,

Aditya Joshi.
