Here is my Cessna 182. Fiberglass Fuse, Built up wing. It carries a Blip-Cam for great in flight photos.

Phasor 45 motor, Castle 60 Pheonix Controller, 14.8 4000 mah batteries. Polk Seeker II radio, pushing a HiTec RCD Rx and HiTec Servos.

Since these pics, I have added my own N Number on the side, and a little more detail (as in some stickers) Many a flight and its still a great scale ship.

Nice airplane. Is it an ARF or did you build it yourself?

My Dad, Hircflier, is with me this weekend and I took these pics from the plane. Another wonderful flying weekend and were going to do it again this weekend.

Sorry the pic isnt that great of quality, but it was a fun day. I'm at the fence behind the white van, and Hircflier is sitting in the shade of the liftgate.
