72" CAP 232 For Sale
CAP 232 with First Person View, and long range UHF
Transmitter and Receiver, scratch built from plans
I built this plane for myself from plans. It is just the size I like, a 72 inch wingspan.
It's not to big to carry around, but big enough to fly well.
It's powered by an OS 120 AX with a Bisson Pitts muffler.
I set it up with a UHF Scherer transmitter and reciever:
The plane has Eagle Tree on screen display, and GPS:
It is ready for your GoPro camera, video transmitter/receiver, and ground station with monitor or video headset.
It's ready for you to finish or you can pay me to do so. I'd estimate 2 months to fine sand, dope with balsarite, fine sand again, cover, and trim cover, $800 plus materials.
