Detailed Realistic Cockpit

The 360° transparent cockpit windows and dual-row seats match that of the full-scale aircraft. Coupled with an realistic pilot figure, instrument panels, and control yokes, the interior immerses you in a real cockpit experience. These unique scale details are a proud feature of FMS, allowing you to indulge in the joy of scale model flying.

Faithfully Reproduced Scale Details

The FMS 1500mm Cessna 182 includes more scale realism for model aircraft of its size and type, meticulously reproducing every detail of the real aircraft from the intake grille to the engine exhaust, multiple realistic antennas, landing gear fairings, and chrome plated propeller spinner. The concealed servo horn in the flap design also enhances the aircraft's aesthetics, aligning closely with the full-scale aircraft.

Short Takeoff and Landing (STOL)

The 1500mm Cessna 182 has excellent short takeoff and landing capabilities, easily handling distances within three meters. Equipped with a robust propulsion system and effective flaps, it ensures quick takeoffs and landings even on smaller fields or confined areas.

Capable of Handling Rough Landings

The 1500mm Cessna 182 features CNC metal shock-absorbing landing gear set and wear-resistant tires, effectively resisting rough landings. Enhanced with damping silicone oil, the landing gear provides even cushioning, facilitating smoother travel and enhanced performance on rough surfaces or uneven airstrips.

Outstanding Low-Speed Flight Performance

The aircraft's wing design ensures stability and maneuverability during low-speed flight. It excels at low-altitude flying, slow cruising, and observation or photography tasks. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced pilot, you can effortlessly enjoy the thrill of low-speed flight.

Quick Glue-Free Assembly

Assembly can be completed in just 10 minutes which includes securing the fuselage and landing gear with screws. The main wing features a plug-in integrated installation structure, the wing strut includes a groove-type installation structure, and the horizontal and vertical tails use a combination snap-in installation structure. The two-piece fuselage reduces packaging size by 30% which simplifies transportation and storage.

High-Performance Power System

The FMS 1500mm Cessna 182 is equipped with a 3541-KV840 brushless motor, a 40A brushless ESC, and a durable and efficient nylon-reinforced three-blade propeller. The power system provides the aircraft with sufficient thrust and speed so it can effortlessly execute vertical climbs and advanced flying maneuvers.

Powerful Reverse Thrust Function

The ESC allows you to taxi the Cessna in reverse on the ground. Activating the reverse thrust function after landing can slow it down. The robust ESC includes various protection features such as overheating protection, low voltage protection, and signal loss protection. This design makes the aircraft more flexible during taxi on the ground and also in the water using the optional floats.

Fly From Water with Our Optional Floats

The optional floats (sold separately) make your Cessna stand out. They allow you to take off, taxi, and land from lakes, rivers, or beaches. With floats installed, unlock boundless water fun and excitement.

Enhanced Visibility with Bright Navigation Lights

Seven bright navigation lights illuminate the aircraft … including five wing lights, one tail light, and one vertical tail light which perfectly replicate the details of the full-scale aircraft. These lights make the aircraft more eye-catching during flight, especially during dusk or nighttime flights, improving visibility and safety during the flight process.

Choose Reflex V3 for Safer Flying

Reflex V3 (sold separately) is a stable flight technology that assists pilots during takeoff and landing, helps stabilize the aircraft during normal flight and emergency situations, and minimizes the likelihood of crashes. The Reflex V3 can connect to a mobile phone via Bluetooth with the FMS app and provides customizable parameter and adjustment capabilities for FMS aircraft as well as other model aircraft.

Excellent Wind Resistance

The 1500mm wingspan of the Cessna 182 improves the aircraft's wind resistance, allowing it to maintain a stable flight attitude when encountering crosswinds or airflow disturbances thus reducing the risk of lateral drift and imbalance.

This was labeled a beginners plane. It should not have been.

Larry Rhodes
Cessna 182 1500mm

Reely a great Plane to fly. very predictable lands like a dream. Would recommend this plane to all flyers new and old.

Bert McNaughton
FMS C-182

Aircraft was easy to put together and it’s even easier to fly. I’m flying in various sizes of 4S batteries including turnigy 4.0, 3.3 and easily getting 10 minutes of fly time. The only thing that could be different is if they model came with the floats included, like some other models, otherwise, a great model and waiting for the floats to be stocked again so I can purchase them.

On a secondary note, I wish FMS would bring back the 1400 mm Stuka!
