Hi to all

Just gone through all and with quite a surprise there are some items missing and some of them are doubled up.

Let me explain whats seems to me that is missing in this kit.

1 x fuel tank
1 x set of wheels
1 x set of control rods/push rods
1 x set of blind nut's and screws for the spats
1 x set of screws for fastening the canopy
1 x set of self-taps for fastening the cockpit
1 x set of sticker pack

What has come extra or over issued.
2 x set of quick links
3 x set of ball links
2 x set of pull pull

Really i do not know why.

Just wanted to add to all of this it is a nice kit constructed and well thought of.
looks to me more like a fun fly model and not like a scale Cap232 or 231ex.




My thoughts regarding this models being more toward of a fun fly 3D type model is the fact that the wing aerofoil looks like it has double in thickness compared to the original scale.
The ailerons are tapered and much more larger than the scale once,which the scale model has parallel strip ailerons.
The tail plane and elevator seems to look scale and so dose rudder.
The cockpit is a bit stretched out.

Apart from all of this the model livery has great looks which is why i bought the model in the first place.
it's a great pity the models is not to a scale standard and i know this days it's more for the manufactures to go more for the
3D market than the scale acrobatics models.

This is just a mutter of personal taste i prefer a radio controlled acrobatic model that is why i bought the Cap232.
