Top Flite Gold Edition Cessna 182 Skylane

1/5 Cessna 182 Skylane Gold Edition Kit

Big enough (1/5 scale) to be IMAA-legal...smooth enough for “Sunday” flying.

Top Flite Gold Edition Cessna 182 Skylane

One of the Cessna’s biggest features is — it’s size! At an IMAA-legal 81” span, it’s big enough to dominate the sky over the club and to offer plenty of room for down-to-the-rivets detailing. And while it IS a big project, the time involved is much smaller than you’d think. Gold Edition engineer- ing is the reason. CAD-engineered in 3D, the Skylane features interlocking, all-wood parts and a host of time savers: marked pushrod routings; preshaped wing struts and plastic fairings; precision-formed ABS parts and decals for adding detail; side windows that simply plug in, and a 1-piece rear window with the complex curves already built-in. With all that, the Cessna moves off the boards as smoothly as it does in air. High-wing stability doesn’t prevent you from enjoying a leisurely loop or roll, and flaps cut landing/take-off distance requirements down to size. Great for a first scale project, or just the latest of many.
