The CAP232 needs no introduction to the modelling public. Now you can enjoy a model with the accuracy of a pattern model and the agility of a fun fly! Its ultra light weight and CNC ensured accuracy combine to produce a model which is quick to build and great to fly, from docile low speed handling to unlimited freestyle!

Painstakingly developed over three years this CAP 232 is close to scale, (20%), in both outline and flying characteristics and will fly well with a variety of power plants, most of which will fit inside its large cowl with standard silencer fitted.

The kit is intended to be both quick and accurate to build and robust to operate. To this end every effort has been made to utilise the latest technology both in design and production, together with selection of the finest materials available ensuring that it not only meets these criteria today, but continues to do so throughout its life in production.

Above all it is intended to be fun, to build and to fly, whether it's your second model or your hundred and second!

Flying characteristics: -

This model will come as a pleasant surprise to many pilots.

It has amazing manoeuvrability and yet will fly incredibly slowly due to its low wing loading. Its carefully thought out design makes it very crisp and accurate to fly, partly due to its low inertia and partly due to its incredible rigidity.

It will float around at scale like speeds and yet when asked to perform a snap and a half starting and stopping perfectly on line it responds in the blink of an eye - unfazed - positive or negative!

Its knife edge performance has to be experienced to be believed, indeed on the first prototypes' second flight it performed two effortless knife edge loops, one to the left, and one to the right, neither particularly large, or high!

With a cooking forty it will make a superb low wing trainer or sports model, while with a good forty-six it will delight even the most experienced flyer,my personal favourite is the Irvine 53.

Happy landings keep working on the torque rolls,
