Thanks chaps .Could have shown it doing low inverted passes but that is a bit undignified for a "Spam Can" lol.

Seriously it's a very relaxing model to fly and would be ideal as a second trainer . smile .

Very nice indeed Tom. Have you flown her in any kind of wind yet?

Hi Ian

Good question in view of the low wing loading. Well the first thing to say is that the glide is very flat which indicates low drag and a good wing section, this results in good penetration without using bucket loads of power .The control authority is excellent without being twitchy so handling in winds of 10-15mph is no problem.

10-15mph winds, eh? Round here, 10-15mph counts as a calm day! So if you say that its no problem then that has just doubled my interest in this model.

While I think about it someone said the mass of wires under the wing was a problem .Well the way round a birds nest is to instal Y leads in the wing channels which results in just one lead for the flaps and one for the ailerons .The two males then plug into the two females that are routed via the square plastic duct leaving bags of room to tuck them inside the duct when joined.wink 2.

Hi Guys

Got mine from Throttle Store Norway .The original links don't work but this one does . The model is really cheap but look out for postage it can be expensive .H K now have the same model but it comes withe motor servos ect already fitted ,might be worth waiting until HK UK open and see what the price is like .The 182 is made by Tian Sheng Item number TS 832. So a good search may help.

Tom.

iirc from the previous post, it's £79 for the bare model, quite a bargain, but P&P to the UK from Norway, is......... £129..!!

I have emailed them to confirm this extraordinary price, but haven't had a reply yet..

Prices for postage seem to vary from week to week mine cost £68 which I thought was very expensive .The total cost was £148 which overall was not to bad as it is a nice model .

It would be interesting if any one can find a really good deal or pop across to Norway and bring a van full back lol.

Tom.
