A CAP with a tuned pipe is something I've never even seen before. But I think that's a great idea if you can get it to work.

Christophe Paysant LeRoux had one of the best flying Cap designs ever and did quite well at the TOC with it in the 90s. We've spent a lot of time studying this aircraft.

I'm really looking forward to flying a Cap with the Extreme Flight magic touch applied. The Cap is one of my all time favorite airframes. I can imagine it will be the all time inverted harrier king of 50cc's. Knife edge spins, waterfalls, ETC.

I cant wait to see the Extreme Flight cap 232, greatplanes has a version but it isnt really a true 50cc plane and it has a few issues. Extreme flight planes are the best flying and best quality on the market bar none! any chance of maybe just a sneak peak?

Plus it will be a BIG 50cc CAP. That will likely be my next plane. Think it will make it by January? Or will it be a spring release? I could use one in my line up. It will go right next to the Yak.

I think the Edge is still this year. They are shipping the Extra 123" first (next week).

He also said they would be shipped somewhere in September and last year December is was even announced on their site for a short period of time it would be available in January.

So if everything goes well, we could order them mid November. Any news on the other color scheme?

Hi, I can maybe understand the wing span the same as the extra. But the length, wing area, and weight... that should be different, I would think. Unless they just changed the landing gear, and cowl on the extra and called it an edge with a decal. I really doubt that EF would do that! It is after all a totally diff airframe.

Thanks.
Don
