I had the 1/4 scale Monocoupe and was very pleased with both the quality of construction and the flying characteristics. I'd purchase another one of their ARFs with no hesitation. I keep looking at the Rearwin Speedster they offer, hmmm.

A good buddy of mine had a red Monocoupe from Kangke. I got to fly it a couple times and it had no surprises. I believe his was an early release and had a very weak landing gear that would bend even on gentle landings. Kangke cheerfully replaced it with a heavier gear that worked out great. Very nice bird.

Kangke Cap232

I rebalanced this plane and found that I made a error when I first balanced.The plane is fine and a great flier.Why I balanced it right side up the first time is beyond me.Balanced upside down and with the OS 1.08 up front it was right on with NO additional weight.I made a BOO BOO sorry-

cap 232

I have a Cap 232 from them, a great flier.After about the 10th flight i greased a landing and was rolling passed me on the grass when it looked like i hit the gear switch.and the gear retracted.Well caps have no gear, retracts that is.The fuel dissolved the glue where i could just pull the firewall off with my hands.Lesson, go over all glue joints where you can and fuelproof the firewall some more.Joe
