Don't let the price fool you, this model not only a nice size, not only does it look good, with scale detail and pre-applied decals, it is a quality model.
For instance, you get a plastic scale spinner, plastic struts, plastic wheel pants, steel under-carriage wire with a plastic covering for a scale look, and more, at this price, most of these items would normally be foam! A full colour instruction book, large SF prop and all hard-ware, including a carbon main spare are also included!
This model has scale looks and boasts a fully steerable nose-wheel, full 4 channel control, 2 pc wing for easy transport, hinged control surfaces, plastic servo covers and an easy access battery tray that will take a large pack for excellent flight times. This Hobbyking 182 is an excellent foam scale model that has everything to offer both the experienced pilot and novice pilot, and with it being a kit, you can add navigation lights, flaps, floats, whatever you fancy to add more scale detail!

Thanks for sharing your experience, i have bought two of these planes and have made some modifications. Your story tells me I need to make a couple more. I had added two 1/4" x 5" dowels at the wing root but I had not fiberglassed the joint, I think I will do that after your experience. I also bought and extended carbon rods all the way to the wing tips. I spliced the carbon rods with internal dowels. I think I will wrap my second planes rod joints with fiberglass.
If you want flaps you must add them your self. I put pictures of my flap mod in the files area.
I am disappointed with HK! this product is good but is in backorder. I am waiting for this in almost 8 weeks!!!Haven arrived yet but the pics looks good but its so cheap that its always out of stock....hk have more cheap stuff stockedExcellent CESSNA SCALE . Compared to the AIRFEILD CESSNA IT IS FAR SUPERIOR IN QUALITY . This RICCS Cessna flies great and is real easy to take off and land on grass . OVER ALL A SUPER PLANE :>)Waiting for 3 weeks is still not in stock, ship provided inasmuch as, say, the sales do not understand why do we have. Please give as soon as possible before the ship even though he was saying I have this product in stock while waiting 3 weeks now.Bought two of these because they are cheap and I know what my flying is like. Built the first one OK using electrics from my original Cessna which had a more powerful motor, just did modification to front wheel by leaving out extension piece and fixing wheel shaft directly into white plastic steering arm/horn, makes the front a bit lower but is OK as prop has enough room not to hit the ground, I also had to bend the rod between the servo and the front wheel horn because the angle of the rod put a lot of pressure on the servo and as this servo also works the rudder I didn't want any trouble with it. Had great fun on first flight, really easy to fly, put another battery in and up again, got a bit more adventurous and did some wild loops, rolls and turns (up high to give myself plenty of room). S**t the wing came apart at the centre joint with one half fluttering gently to the ground but the rest of the plane hitting with an almighty thud. Everything had major damage including the battery, all the other electrics including the motor still working. Great that I bought two of them. Just finished building the second one and did a lot of strengthening. On my very first 1.4mtr span Cessna I had put cloth tape on the wing centre joint top and bottom and also on the centre joint of the body from front to back where I could get to it. On this one I have cloth taped the wing and body like
