  • Bulkheads and stringers form the fuselage, which lowers the flying weight and improves the scale appearance
  • Dual servos add precision to aileron response and provide the safety of a back-up in case one servo fails.
  • Airfoil-shaped wing struts add realism and minimize drag — included "boots" provide a smooth fairings where the struts connect to the wing and fuselage.
  • Strong, pre-painted fiberglass wingtips recreate the full-size plan's Hoerner style wingtips and improve stall characteristics.
  • Includes aluminum landing gear and durable fiberglass wheel pants, both painted for scale looks.

The Great Planes Cessna 182 Skylane features exceptional quality, fine scale detail and fast, almost ready-to-fly assembly. The model is all-wood construction, covered in genuine MonoKote, and accented with fiberglass cowling, wing tips, tailcone, and wheel pants that come pre-painted.

The Cessna's cowl, tail cone, wingtips, and wheel pants are all made of durable, factory-painted fiberglass. To install the tail cone, you just glue it into place — to avoid the long, difficult process of building one from wood.

In only 15 to 20 hours, you can put together a stunning sport-scale Cessna that's built as well as most kits. The model is constructed using only the finest materials and includes premium-quality, Great Planes brand hardware.

Great Planes constructed this Cessna ARF just like a skilled modeler would do it himself, given unlimited time and building expertise. The strong, interlocking wood framework is surrounded by high-gloss, easily repairable MonoKote film.
