Quote: "Contest-level aerobatics, in an easy-building .40-size all-wood kit! Aspiring tournament pilots don't have to have a large, expensive kit to compete in MinIMAC events - all they need is the CAP 232 from Great Planes! Knife-edge loops, waterfalls, torque rolls - this model can perform any 3-D maneuver in the book, and look good doing it.
In the air, the CAP 232's large rudder makes for easier handling, and the rear-mounted rudder servo features a shorter linkage that tightens the coupling for greater authority. A dual elevator pushrod system allows for infinite individual adjustablilty of each elevator half. With its ability to perform even the most radical freesytle aerobatics, this is one plane that's ready, willing and able to unleash a flier's 'wild side'..."
kit no: GPMA0232
Note the product manual (on pages 6 and 7) includes identificition sheets that could be used to draw up and fabricate the die-cut parts supplied in the kit, ie ribs and formers.
Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

ScaleType: This (oz10827) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.
If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.
ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mudry_CAP_230
Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

* Credit field
The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.
This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
