The CAP is known as the "snap" 232 -- how good is your flying?

I don't understand this "Snap Cap" reputation. I've owned 2 of the World Models CAP 232's and a Kyosho .60 size CAP 232. All three of them have been wonderful flying airplanes. True, they are not meant for beginners and thier ability to perform advanced aerobatics tend to make them less forgiving. I love the way they look, love the way they fly and love the way they Snap.

They all weigh relatively the same.

Get the one with the most wing area. [sm=thumbup.gif]

Doesn't matter if it's an Extra or a Cap or a Yak. If your flying IMAC Beginner class with a glow motor--the one with the most wing area will fly the best.

I really believe the "snap" reputation came from the cap21 as it will snap in a heartbeat if you try to slow it down to much. I have the old great planes 60 size cap21 with 72" wingspan and it is alot of fun but will keep you on your toes. I also fly a cap232 from yellow aircraft and its tendency to snap is not like that of the cap21. Keep the plane light and you will like any of them.
