This brilliant plug and fly CAP comes with all the electronics pre installed making for an amazingly fast build. This models superb aerobatic abilities more than make up for it's not quite scale appearance. Balsa plug and fly is not something you see often and so much work has been done for you that 1-2 hours maximum is all you are going to need to get into the air. The powerful outrunner motor, ESC and all servo's are pre-fitted leaving you to glue on the tailfeathers and bolt the wing on.
We have tested and flown this CAP quite a bit and it is amazingly capable with impressive thrust from the low kv motor and big SF prop combination. The servo's are more than up to the job of keeping the impressively large control surfaces pointing in the right direction and the model is practical with it's removable wing, nicely applied covering which is good for orientation and robust undercarriage. If you are fed up of foam but would like a small-ish, easy to build & very capable aerobatic model, this fun, cheap CAP 232 is just the ticket!

Ok built. I recommend it being re-enforced with super glue, as it is pooly glued.
The plane flied great.
Motor is good quality
-NO SPARE PARTS AVAILABLE
-Besides the Motor, ALL THE INCLUDED electronics are low quality. ESC WILL burn out on you eventually in mid flight. This happened to me and other people. There are videos of it.
If you decide to buy this, I recommend you replace all the electronics besides the motor, reinforce with more glue, and hope to not crash because there are NO parts available for it.
For this, despite the fact that it flies great, I regret buying this plane. The ESC failure set it on fire in mid air and I lost my $150.0...
This plane was a nightmare to build, It could not be considered pnp. All the servos were loose as they were screwed into places where screws can not grip. All the servos were glitchy and needed replacing, even the screws holding them were rusty. The prop nuts were also rusty and all the wiring plus the ESC needed replacing. One push rod was also missing. If I didnt have a large amount of spare parts on hand this plane would never have flown.It seems missing pushrods in the pckage is a common problem. I had mine delivered last year. Just finally found time to open the box and assemble this baby. All in all the model seems capable enough. The build quality is good. The servos are nameless and look a bit cheap though. The control surfaces look quite big. I wonder if it can do 3d.
Yesterday i did a ground test. The motor ran for 3 minutes on full throttle with 2s 1800mah battery. I will be getting a 3s 2500mah at least for the maiden flight. That happens after two weeks when I am back home from work.Very nice plane, but be careful mine has the right COG without the battery, so if I put the battery in battery case, cog is more than 10 mm forward so very nose heavy. I put the battery under the cockpit for a good COGVery nice plane, but it took 2 week to package before it was shipped...
Was missing a pushing rod in mine too.
My first balsa plane, very happy with it. After been assembled, with a 1500 mAh battery, it was very nose heavy (cog 10 mm forward, 79mm from the edge of the wing instead of 89mm). I broke the battery compartiment to put the battery vertically, and then the cog was right. Go vertical very easyly, and had take some hard landing, but stay strong! Yesterday I broke the landing gear sock, but some epoxy and all is like brand new!
A good plane!Great overall performance. Great craftsmanship!
Flys amazing regardless of finding the right cg.
Hovers well with a little extra weight on the tail. Remove the tail wight and you have an incredible sport flyer.
Thanks hobby king! ABought this plane when on special late last year. Unfortunately it arrived in New Zealand damaged, took photos, scanned HK paperwork and followed HK compalint proceedure, They got matter all sorted form me quickly and very much in my favour. Full marks to their customer service.
Havent flown the plane as keeping as replacement for when my HK Pitts Special falls apart or perishesMine arrive a couple of days ago. Thank you Hobby King for double boxing. The outer box had a 12 inch crease on the boxt and if not for double boxing the plane would be a right off. Plane very good but it has a lot of plastic parts. A large plastic cowl. It has a large cockpit window and the plastic goes all the way to the nose.Lots of bits missing from mine , only one pushrod , screws missing , and as usual the clevices where rubbish , DO NOT USE THE PLASTIC CLEVICES the little plastic pin snaps off immediately
I havent flew this yet so will not comment on how it flies, not sure how long the motor and esc will last, and the servos are also crap.Yust received this plane, everything looks great.
But it is not plug and fly!!!
There is too much to to! It is like other ARF models. Ok, the electronics are included and mounted, but no servo horns, push rods, hinges for elevator and rudder...
