About this Plan

Cap 232. Radio control sport-scale model. Wingspan 58 in, wing area 594 sq in, for .40 engines.

Discontinued kit from Great planes, see http://www.greatplanes.com/discontinued/gpma0232.php for more details, PDF download of full kit manual (44 pages), and full parts listing.

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'..."

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
