FMS Releases its 1500mm Cessna 182 PNP

By: Tim Gluth

If you're an aviation fanatic who's looking for an ultra-realistic R/C aircraft, let me introduce you to the 1500mm Cessna 182 PNP from FMS. Combining an officially licensed design with an easy-to-fly setup, this radio-controlled airplane should be an excellent choice for novice pilots while offering plenty of fun for experienced vets.

With its short takeoff distance and low-speed maneuverability, this looks like a great option for hobbyists who are looking to purchase their first R/C plane. Additional features of the 1500mm Cessna 182 PNP include LED navigation lights, metal landing gear, and a smooth-performing brushless motor.

Before you can take to the skies with this model, you'll need to supply a 6-channel radio system (transmitter and receiver), a 4S LiPo battery (with XT60 connector) and a LiPo battery charger.
