Beautiful Top Flite 1/5 Scale Cessna 182 Skylane built from the kit (not ARF) by an expert craftsman. Receiver ready!

This beauty was built by Tony Madsen (RIP), former owner-operator of the Birds Roost RC club in Mississauga, Southdown area,
and former president of the South Haldimand Skyhawks RC Club in Selkirk. Tony was well known for his fine building and finishing skills.

Details:
81" wingspan, 64.5" Fuselage
Covered with fiberglass and spray painted finish.
Fiberglass cowl upgrade
includes the Top Flite light kit
Includes full Cockpit Interior Kit (currently removed to replace servos)
Includes 7 New Hitec HS-5485HB digital servos.
Robarts Oleo Strut steerable nose gear
low time Enya 120 4-stroke glow engine
fuel tank installed
Master Airscrew prop
Aluminum spinner
Working Flaps with offset hinges for realistic function

I also have the original Kit box with rolled plans, manual, the original plastic cowl kit, etc. Tony had removed the cockpit interior to upgrade the servos,
but his health failed before he could put it all back in. I've left the interior out so the next owner could easily install an RX, Batteries and switches. It goes back together easily.

$500

Sold

The build and finish quality is obvious from the pics. Kicking myself I can't grab this one.

Tony and John Britton taught me to fly at Birds Roost over 20 years ago! Sorry to hear he has passed away. Best of luck with the sale Dennis, he was an awesome craftsman!

Thanks Mike! I'm pretty sure the kit and engine came from John Britton's shop too. Yep, The Good Ol' Days! Tony's sudden passing was indeed a shock. I had spent some nice weekends with him at the Skyhawks' field just prior to hearing the terrible news. He wasn't flying anymore but seemed to be in reasonably good health.
