The Great Planes Cessna is exceptional quality with fine scale detail. Fast, almost ready-to-fly assembly; Rarely does one model earn all three of those descriptions, but the Great Planes Cessna 182 Skylane is no ordinary ARF. Manufactured with such choice materials as wood, fiberglass, and Top Flite MonoKote covering, it looks great... its built even better than most kits... and takes only hours to assemble!
The Cessna's cowl, tail cone, wingtips and wheel pants are all made of durable, factory-painted fiberglass. To install the tail cone, you just glue it into place and avoid the long, difficult process of building one from wood. In only 15-20 hours, you can put together a stunning sport-scale Cessna that's built as well as perhaps even better than most kits. The model is constructed using only the finest materials, including premium-quality Great Planes brand hardware.
- Bulkheads and stringers form the fuselage, which lowers the flying weight and improves the scale appearance
- Dual servos add precision to aileron response and provide the safety of a back-up in case one servo fails
- Airfoil-shaped wing struts add realism and minimize drag included "boots" provide a smooth fairing where the struts connect to the wing and fuselage
- Strong, pre-painted fiberglass wingtips recreate the full-size planes' Hoerner style wingtips and improve stall characteristics
- Cowl, tail cone, wingtips and wheel pants are all made of durable, factory-painted fiberglass
- Includes aluminum landing gear and durable fiberglass wheel pants, both painted for scale look
