Wing span; 53.7” Wing Area;  396 sq. in.  Length; 38”  Flying weight; 23.7 oz.

Power; E-Flight 890 KV Park 450 Outrunner, E-Flite 20A ESC w/ BEC,  APC 12-6E Prop and a Hyperion 2500  mah 2S Lipoly Battery.

Guidance is 5ch. R/C with 6 Sub-Micro Servos: 1 ea. E-Flite S-75 Rudder and Elevator, and 2 ea. S-60 Aileron, and 2 ea. S-60 Flap using the Spektrum DX-7 radio.

            The C-180 is a large Park Flyer, but is slow and docile, so can be flown in smaller venues. The model is of all wood construction with Vac-Formed plastic Cowl, and requires intermediate building skills; some “stick framing” experience would be very helpful.

            Flying the C-180 requires only intermediate flying skills as well, and would make a terrific first 5 ch. scale model. For those relaxing late day flying sessions, the C-180 looks great floating around the calm evening skies.

            The short kit contains 3 highly detailed 36” X 48” plan sheets with parts I.D. sheets and 12 laser cut (10 balsa 2 plywood) sheets, and the Vac-Formed plastic Cowl. Patterns are provided for the windshield and cabin windows as well as a detailed list of additional materials required to complete the model, plus assembly instructions to aid in building and flying the model. Templates are also provided to make the gauges for accurately setting up the proper flap deflection for both take-off and landing modes.

The original C-180 P-type was done up in bush pilot Don Sheldon's very utilitarian colors.

 

 

The second model built is a much more colorful version and shows the versatility of what can be done with this kit.
