    RE: brio

    I would expect that it would be produced again at some point, its not clear who will produce it. Its a very sucessful design. With respect to the Brio 10, there are several articles on line as well as recent magazines that have some very good setup info.

    Yes the CAP is one of a kind. There are just a few out there. There are no kits or plans that I am aware of.

    RE: brio

    Sounds simple. Multiply everything by 2 and you'll be pretty close to 48% There are some pictures of my 46% cap in a building thread winter building project from last winter. I'm scheduled to finish it up this winter and get it back in the air in the Spring.

    RE: brio

    Don, I am wondering if your big cap can do 3d maneuvers, I would like to do that with mine. would I have to increase my control surface size and if so about how much? I can't wait to get started this is going to be my winter build. thank again for your help. I saw you fly at the NATS and I think that brio is a great flying airplane and throught about scaling up the brio 10 to a 2M size I love to build,and fly pattern, I know a good light and straight airframe will be easy to fly and compete with. I plan on flying adavnce at the 2007 NATS and hope to have two brio's next spring thanks again

    Yes good 3D maneuvers. Also watch some pictures from www.1nvrc.com for pictures of TOC 2000 and also report on the experience.
