Not because of its flight characteristics. Though many pilot bends their firewalls on touchdown, due the nose heaviness of that aircraft.  But a lot pilot likes it more because of more power, more speed, higher possible altitudes, constant speed propeller and the IFR-equipement. And that`s the reason - due to that it is much more challenging than the Cessna 172. Imagine beeing in a crowded area like KLAX, approaching the airportwhile listening to Radio calls every few seconds, watching speed, altitude, VOR-needles and the traffic around at the same time in bad weather condition - challenging!

You might wanna read this: [https://pilotbrian.blogspot.com/2009/05/stepping-up-to-c182.html Stepping Up to a C182 ]
    
'''''Is the C182S made easier to fly, instead of more realistic to fly?'''''

No. The authors uses real numbers, datas, coefficients and more where available, aiming to get everything realistic as it can be. As an example it matches all the numbers given in the POH, and uses real aerodynamic coeffcients ofr the fdm where available. If it doesn`t fly as you expect, you might be used to FSX?

Anyway, if encounter something you think it isn`t right, file an Issue-report [https://github.com/HHS81/c182s/issues here], and we will find out.

Second: you might have flooded the engine. Follow this procedure: Pull back mixture to cut off, advance throttle to about about little more than 50-60%, then operate the starter again for a while. If the engine fires, promptly advance the mixture to full rich and return throttle to Idle.
