Default Giant Scale Cap 232

This plane is a DOG!
My friend had two.
The company sent him the second one ,free, after he flew the first one about 20 seconds. (The CG on the specs were off so far, it was impossible to keep it in the air.)
The wing has NO airfoil.
Notice the curved leading edge, then the STRAIGHT wing surface to the trailing edge.
He put the replacement together with up-dated specs. and it would, at least, stay in the air with a YS 120.
This Led sled is a terribly designed model.
It will snap out of a large loop, and the most gentle wide turn.
This company also sells the Giles 202. I had one and it flys fine, although it comes out heavy.
They also sell the Swallow, that people are reporting good success with.
Return the Cap and see if they will send you one of their planes that will actually fly....croz

I bet that cap was designed by Irwin himself.

i set it up like the book said it was tail heavy it call for 130mm-150mm i got it now at 120mm & its still tail heavy it wants to harrier land every time unless you come in hot. the plane wants to snap with just 5 degrees of throw. they claim 8Lbs. it weighs 9 3/4 Lbs. there is a bow in the stab. the fire wall flexes. its been a major pain its flying better but it still has problems. i just hope they do something about it .
