I'd say someone might have thought that it was advertising......It is coming out on plan in a magazine, so I don't know why it was deleted.

Default New Pics

Thats a shame......... seemed like there was a bit of interest going - I think it got up to almost 800 views in about 4 days !

Do we start again ?

Well, news is that the plans are nearly complete, and the modified model is going together nice and quick - Fux Monday Night, Wing Last night, and tail surfaces and Ailerons tonight !

Heres a pic of the 4th Protorype, flown in Jersey,

First one is a parachute landing, or dethermaliser, or "elevator" whatever you want to call it - these are reaaaal easy to perform both ways up.

oops, need to shrink it a bit - back in a min.

Is there any chance of having a cowl on it that doesn't spoil the looks like the one in the photo?
The nice slim fuselage looks nice until it is suddenly ended by a chunky cowl.

The pic might be a bit misleading now that I take a second look at the photo - it looks almost round.

In fact it is just the cheeks which have been left open at the back for cooling and for electric option.

In the flesh it doesnt look so obvious, but see what you think at Sandown.

Thanks for the comments

Default Capiche 50

I received two very early Caphice kits last week. Really high quality and well though out. The plan looks as if it has a full in house cad team on if for a month. You know they type that has enough info to dispense with the instructions.
The wood is top notch and the cutting is crisp. Not to keen on the cowling at the moment but a little work with some paint should get round this. It should take about a week of evenings for each one so I will try to post a pic when they are done

Did you mean that really long thread we had gong where we just talked about everything but kinda turned to Capiche???
I dunno about advertising, theres LOADS of threads where company owners chip in and say BUY THIS and not a word is said, so... go ahead my man
Hope the Sandown weather is good, was looking forward to a nice fly today, but someone forgot to turn the wind off

RE: Post #14

How is it that ALI came to have a kit in his hands? I would surely
love one. I have poured through all the pics at their website
and this plane certainly looks ready to be out there in the public.
Anyone else have an itch about this one.

Just be patient. The kits that I got are still development kits. I am pretty sure that they are in the last stages of completion. Keep checking the web site for more info

Default anything similar?

Is there anything similar to the Capiche 50 that combines 3D and pattern flying? How does it fly pattern (sequence) maneuvers?

Look here..... www.sigmasignwriting.com
The freestyle seems to be the best, but it is $$$$$$$....You could neraly get a Synergy 90ARF from ZN for a bit more.

Sorry robert but my vote has to go with the Capiche over the Freestyle. As for the Synergy, I will let you know what I think as I fly mine tommorow. But looks alone I would put it above the Freestyle by a mile
