The Hobbyking Micro 182 will take less than an hour to complete but give you hours of fun once finished, it even comes with glue and a screwdriver to complete assembly! Motor, servo's and ESC are all pre-installed, the wing is a bolt on item for easy transport and this quality micro model even features full 4 channel control with a steerable nosewheel as well as a novel, lockable side hatch for quick and simple battery replacement.
This little parkfly model is a joy to look at, build and great fun to fly!

Overall, a great little flyer. This plane flies very well, with adequate power from the brushless motor, and responsive controls. I have a few negative points to say about this plane, however.
Firstly, when i got the plane it was missing a pushrod-holder (the metal ring with the screw to secure the pushrods) for the rudder control horn (the metal ring with the screw to secure the pushrods). This was easily overcame, however it would have been nice to have a complete kit. The build was easy with adequate instructions. Now, the major design flaw is the nose gear strut - the wire is simply too weak and bendy. MAKE SURE you take off from very smooth surface, or hand launch, as once the wire gets bent a bit it becomes impossible to land (always nose overs on landing and take-off). This is very annoying...
The plane flies great! I haven't tried many aerobatic maneuvers yet, because a safe height AGL is hard with such a small plane - it gets very small in the sky! The plane does tip stall quite a bit, so make sure you have correct aileron throws to correct quickly or you will slam into the ground sideways...
Overall, a nice purchase, however there are some things to be wary of.Not sure what the deal is here. Received the plane with DOA motor that is clearly not brushless like the description states. Will be dealing with customer service to see what they say. I'm usually quite satisfied with purchases from HK, but not happy with this one.nice plane, can be modified.... easy to repair.... motor mount a little weak but can be super glued back together....I am still learning to fly and as our park is small, I thought I'd give this little trainer a burl. She is a beauty. It would not take off from our too rough runway so I put on bigger tyres. That didn't work so I removed the u/c completely and hand launched it. It flew like magic. I also put on a prop saver because 1. no gear 2. no experience . It flies well with a 5x5 prop. ( I got tired of waiting for 5x3's). It is a stable aircraft and great for a newbie with a small flying area, but it will scoot when you want it too.not for beginner, too fast for its sizeToo much wire in too little space. Went to go fly it with the prescribed battery today. Too nose heavy to get off the ground an shattered one prop. Will wait for a longer runway before trying again. Please either stock replacement part or advise like-item substitute.Stove in vertical full power,destroyed nose gear,cowl,fractured wing only damage,very strong,engine spring mounted.Moved main gear forward,glued micro spitfire main U/C into rudder,taped cowl together.Now have 182 taildragger which flies even better and faster.Awsome little plane.Well the manufacturer had spare parts!... Why don't you ?

Flying with old Ar500 rx. 15min flying time on 2s 500. Very strong. Would recommend painting to see better at distance.Great plane. I have over 30 flights on it. Use a 500mah 2S to get 7 minute flights. Very stable in the air. Glides great, doesn't stall, tracks perfectly. Can handle a little bit of wind. Plenty of power, will climb vertically to 100 feet, loops easily but the wing flex makes me nervous. I fly around at half throttle. Way too fast at full throttle, high wing trainers shouldn't be going that fast!
Had the ESC fry on my on the the 3rd flight, crashed but only damage was a bent front landing gear strut. Switched to a 10A ESC and its been all good.
Using a cased Orange RX squeezed in the small fuselage, managed to make it fit.
Switched out the wheels to 1.25 inch foam ones to land on dirt infields.
Love this plane simple stress free enjoyable park flying.
