182 light aircraft Deluxe Version (ARF) (UK Warehouse)
One of HobbyKings all time best selling models, the Deluxe 182, is now availble in an ARF version allowing you to install your own selection of motor, ESC and servos.
The 182 is made from dense and extremely smooth foam. Unlike typical GWS type foamies, this kits foam is smooth enough to appear gloss-like.
With the addition of working flaps (Deluxe Version) the 182 makes a perfect introductory model to training on the extra control surface. The rudder is also linked to the steerable nose wheel, making taxing fun!
This is a high quality plane with excellent flying characteristics. You will not be disappointed!

Hello Christopher, I hope you had a good Christmas apart from not being able to fly your Cessna182, How is the installation for the floats to your Plane, is it the Artech or Skyline model you have?, HK sell floats for the Skyline so fitting them to an Artech has a few alterations needed for it to work easily. I fitted servos in the wings for the airelons.
Flaps and ailerons are not the same, ailerons on the outer wing's control roll, ie main wing moves around axis of body( fuselage )or in other words ailerons lift and lower the wing tips, when used in conjunction with Elevator can turn the plane's course left or right, like a rudder but more efficent and precise, Flaps on the other hand are also fitted on the wing's are used to help the wing produce more lift, it gets really confusing when flyers set up and use "Flaperons" a combination of ailerons and flaps which can be programmed through a good Transmitter.
Hello, I have just bought this plane and now I would like to have a chat with other pilots of this plane, Is there anyone out there who can tell me about the plane, one question I have is has anyone fitted the Navigation Lights, and used the water floats, also where can I buy parts for the Plane, I need a 6Ch Transmitter too, so when I finally complete the installation of parts in the plane, I can fly it.I hope? I am totally NEW to this sport Hobby.
I have 2 of these now, they are fantastic models to build and fly.One is standard and the other is under constuction of floats.I would strongly advise that you get a 6 or more channel transmitter with dual rates and Epo on as to calm the control surfaces down until you get used to it.Then as you progress with the model you can turn them back up accordingly. (From Chris.)
hello Christopher Thanks for your input, everybit helps, I have 2 cessna182's aswell, How is the float installation going? Artech don't supply floats I think, only Skyline supply floats, BUT I guess one can work out a way to fit them to a Artech Cessna182. Happy New Year, keep in touch it would be nice to chat now and then. CU
Hello Leslie,I have nearly got my floats fitted,by the means of carbon fiber rod which i have got from damaged kites, i cut them to size bind with cotton and super glue for the struts.Then 2 part epoxy the ends into the floats and fusalage.The floats im using are from leeds model shop years ago and were expensive,Hobbyking ones you mentioned will be fine.
Great Christopher, Id love to see some progress shots if you have any, I have the HK skyline floats but have not attempted to install them to my Skyartec 182, I worked on getting the servos installed in the wings for the ailerons first that went OK I need to test it out now, The weather is so bad I will have to wait till better weather arrives here in the South. Great plane isn't it.I have a 6 channel transmitter as you advised me to have, thanks for that.Keep in touch Christopher, Oh Im no spring chicken just thought you might want to know. Just started this hobby at retirement. C U.
Christopher, good to hear from you again, I have the exact same transmitter as you. I want to get the Hellcat one day, not for a while though, I need to learn to fly thr 182 then move on to warbirds or a EDF Vixon when I was a nipper, I used to play with KeilKraft balsa models, and my favoutite models were the DeeHavalon 110 Vixen and The Venom and the old famous Mig15, I still love these planes, the new F18 and stelth are the modern planes I like, One of my friends has 6 warbirds all by Alpha, wow they are cracking models.Just before Christmas he destroyed the Corsair he had crushed beyoun repair, he was very upset, I can understand it, he really loved that model. Well I hope you have a good time tomorrow evening bringing in the New Year 2013.Thanks for you input, I look forward to the seeing the pics of your Floats.on the 182 you have. C U over and out till next year.
Hello Leslie, First of all Happy new year to you and your Family.The weather let me fly my Artech Cessna on Saturday morning a lovely 10mph breeze helped carry the plane around the sky at ease.I have heared we might be getting some snow this weekend up here in Yorkshire, so i have made a pair of skies for it out of 1/4 ins balsa covered with solar film.I still hav"nt taken pictures of the one with floats i will soon.
Hi Christopher,Thank you for your wishes, Yes Happy New Year to you . What a great Idea to put Skies on the plane, James Bond stuff hey. I saw a video on YouTube a while back in 2012, and these guy's were using the normal floats on a frozen lake I think.
Well done I would love to see a vid of that in action Skies in Yorkshire. I have not done any flying yet it has been very wet here in Hampshire.
Keep up the good stuff Over and Out.
order it from Germany its worth buying
1 thumbs up!
So i brought the pnf version and for the price you really cant fault it but there are a few issues that i found with mine that are easy to fix just a bit of a pain..
the battery connector was female so it means resoldering on a male end so that it actually works with your batteries..
there is a piece on the front of the wing that sits in some slots to keep the wing down at the front and these were inline so it meant pulling then off and hot gluing back on..
and the wheel covers are much the same.. they needed abit of work but for the price its really not THAt bad..
just gotta see how it flies
Not a bad airframe at all for the price,I'm using a eflite park 370 brushless motor a
40a esc "slight overkill for this model but that's what I had at the time"hkscm9 servos orange rx and 1300 nanotech lipos
I put a 4mm cf rod in the wing because I did like the flex that it had altho they do have struts...it was easy anuff as there is a space ready for a cf brace!!
Iv not flown it yet but will leave a flight review after the first maden.
