    OMG, I transport mine in a trailer, I can't believe he got it into a corvette. It's an awesome plane, I'm starting to have to lean out my motor, i'ts slowly breaking in, so far I love the plane.

    Awesome, post some pictures when you get a chance, and let me know if you want to come up and fly. It would be great to host you.

  4. Yeah, I had only been flying a couple of months when I got mine back in 2001. I thought it looked great, but what occurs to me now is that I didn't know that it was really a state of the art ARF. I never really thought much about H9 after that. But, after getting their 3.1m Sukhoi recently it dawns on me that they've been putting out nice planes all along. They're probably in a little better financial position to do it right than most. I mean, all of us want to design and sell our own planes, right? :) But, getting it done and making money at it, that ain't easy. What's the old saying that Dave Johnson told me when I was a noob?... "Want to make a million dollars in the RC hobby? Start out with two million, you'll end up with one million." haha

    Hi Guys,

    It's been a while since I have posted anything. I actually got bit by the Turbine Jet bug and have barely flown the Cap or any prop plane this year. I'm writing to check if anyone has an extra canopy. I was moving it around the shop and the I dropped the turtle deck and the canopy cracked (AWWWW bummer).

    I hope someone has one available, I'd like to get this plane back in the air next season. Hope to hear from you.

    Check ebay. I found everything I needed to make a 10yo DL50 new again. Good having you back. Really want some vid of you flying that CAP 232. I really enjoyed mine.

    stangflyer I like 'em "BIG"!

    Which CAP is this? I do not remember. I have seen a few CAPS for sale on other sites lately. Perhaps there is still a canopy around.
