1/8th Scale Cessna 182 Skylane




My oldest son and I recently purchased two identical Airfield, 1/8th scale Cessna 182 Skylane R/C trainers from Nitroplanes.com. They fly great! Since they were identical, we had to personalize them a bit. These are some photos of the various stages. I also added landing and navigation lights. The original spinner was lost when I crashed on approach, so it was replaced with a nice aluminum one. Flaps were added as well as various antennas, a pitot tube, exhaust and a mock nose gear suspension arm. They are very tough models, and very crash-survivable aircraft. My plane "Sweet Sveta" is named after my lovely wife.
