Cessna 188 Agwagon from HobbyKing


The VQ Models Cessna 188 "Agwagon"  from HobbyKing is a highly detailed, impressive-looking model of this popular full-size workhorse. Due to its large wing area, working flaps, and light wing loading it has a very impressive flight performance, it also has options for gas, glow, and electric power. This ARF model has a lightweight balsa and lite-ply jig built fuselage and wings, pre-hinged control surfaces, fiberglass cowl with detailed panel lines, and a huge internal space for electronics, and even possibly a flour hopper! Also included is a detailed cockpit with hand-painted pilot, spinner, servo mounts, vibrant decals, printed scale detail, and a complete hardware pack including mount and fuel tank for the glow/gas versions.

For easy transportation and assembly, the Cessna 188 has a two-piece wing with an aluminum wing joiner allowing this impressive-sized model to be transported in the smaller hatchback cars. Another feature is a large battery hatch to facilitate easy battery pack changes between flights if you are electrifying the Cessna 188.

The Cessna 188 was a light agricultural aircraft produced between 1966 and 1983 by the Cessna Aircraft Company. The initial design of the Cessna 188 was so successful that over its 17-year production run the basic airframe remained unchanged. The main use for the Cessna 188 series was for agricultural purposes, ie, crop-dusting, but many examples were later acquired for use as sailplane and glider tugs.
