Which H9 CAP 232? Where are your servos? Where is your battery? What engine did you use? Can you push it forward a bit?

In general I try to figure out where to put things as I assemble an ARF to avoid this. Once you can keep the engine one and place the airframe on the CG machine you can start to get an idea of where to place the gear to achieve the CG with little or no lead...

the cap is a 40 size, and the servos are located as recommended,
the engine is a new evolution .46 and the battery is right behind the gas tank. the engine i can move forward about an eighth of and inch forward but i dont think that little bit of movement will
make a difference.

Default hanger 9 40 size 232

i wish you good luck, trust me you will need it ! it's true name is snap cap ! the plane has the wrong airfoil for the size of wing. keep it at high speeds . watch what happens when you loop it ! and it was designed for a 4 stroke . now the 80 " cap 232 it's nice!

Default H9 CAP

Hey Lanny,

One of the guys at Holly has one that flies great. His was tail heavy with a .46 so he yanked it and put in a Tower .75. Takes off great, climbs out vertical, does all the acro and lands great. No bad tendencies at all. You need to come down and see it.

I think guys who snap have the ailerons down a little. Make sure both ailerons are slightly, maybe 1/8th inch, up.

I would look for a .61 myself after seeing his plane fly.

I'm not familiar with that plane, but is there enough room to mount the battery on the engine box? I had to do this with an Extra.
