    Hi,
    Currently we don't offer a Cessna airplane model. We do have a lot of other scale planes though. You can see them at this link Scale RC Airplanes: Jets, Warbirds, & Civilian Planes from Hobby Lobby

    Thanks for your reply Jason. I had suspected that this particular plane was out of production, which is a pity because from the review that was done in 2006 and posted on RcGroups forum, it would have been a good all rounder trainer and sports flyer.

    I am interested in Cessna planes which have a tricycle landing gear such as the Cessna 150, 172 and 182 although most of the Cessna 182 models are oversize and I tend to fly park flyers and always brushless powered models as my flying club in Western Australia is only licenced by the MAAA to fly electric powered models as the field is within a suburban area and although it is a public open space, it is surrounded by residential homes and noise levels are a main problem.
