CAP 231 EX

Stuart Mackay Models are pleased to bring you an oustanding model of this fine French aerobatic aircraft , winner of many World Championships since 1990.

The flight performance of this aircraft is perfectly duplicated in our models, the optimum moment arms, streamlined shape and Extra wing section gives the model an enormous speed range and momentum to enable it to duplicate and surpass many of the manoevres previously only seen with the full-size aircraft. The CAPís aerobatic performance does not compromise itís slow speed handling.

The large, 1/3.5 scale model, (89 in/ 2.21 metre span) features our proven all-epoxy glass construction featuring a perfect surface finish complete with all the details of the originalís panels, openings and rivet detail. Carbon is used to strengthen the wing skins and spars for incredible wing strength, two piece wing panels and removable tail allows the CAP to fit in most family hatchback cars and still leave space for the dog! Suitable powerplants are the AW45 with internal tuned pipe or our AW 60 Boxer, although there is space to fully enclose the AW 90 Boxer, if you need an aircraft which accelerates going vertically!!
