Default 1/2 scale Cap 232

Last year I saw a big Cap 232 which was ready to test fly but I didn't see any reports on it. It had a 700cc engine I think and it was really big.
Did anyone hear of it?

Thanks for the info. I did a search on a Cap 232 1/2 scale but didn't find nothing.
With the 70% Staudacher, it worked all right.

Check here [link=http://www.flademir.com.br/artigos/artigo_42.asp]Cap 50%[/link] !!

It´s a brazilian site of a constructor who build a Cap50% and he uses 3W 240cc JR8411 ( 3 each aileron 2 each elevator ), and 4 Futaba 5301 for rudder.

It´s a Greg Garrisson kit.

Hope helping you!!!

It is good to see rudder servos hooked up in a well executed fashion - nice work- Note:
This is how it should be done.

Thats weird, can you get a bigger picture of the rudder set-up? Looks like it has a pushrod for the back servo then the others all have pull pull wires?

How about a 52% Edge

Mine will have a ZDZ 210 with an onboard Starter and disc brakes on the mains.

Good choice 52% Edge. He choose the Cap because it´s a little cheaper. When will you buy this Edge? Post some pictures!!
