QQ Cap 232 EX by Flex Innovations ............


Was lucky enough to get sent the latest release from the guys at Flex Innovations, the new QQ Cap 232EX and what a plane it is.

I thought i would start a new thread in the correct section for this plane as the other thread is in the news section. Here is a link to it for all the videos of QQ and Seth flying it https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...W-QQ-Cap-232EX

Now to start this thread off this video i un-box the QQ Cap 232EX and have a good close up look at all the parts. Keep and eye out for Part 2 where we will build and bind the QQ Cap 232 EX A Huge Thank You to Quique and David for supplying the plane And Thanks for watching..........

Hope to get out this weekend for the maiden, but the weather is not looking kind so i can't promise a flight this weekend!

Cheers Chuck

Some stats on this plane:

From Quique:
“We, the Flex Innovation team, are very excited about the QQ Cap 232EX, it truly has incredibly solid performance. An EPO foam plane in this size, this quality, this price and performance is rare and we are very proud to bring it to the market. The Cap is pure fun and it does it all with incredible strong control authority, smoothness, preciseness and very friendly handling. The night version is a pure to fly at dark or dusk with switchable on/off from radio brings some extra fun!

We are taking pre-orders and take the advantage of free shipping untill Jan 31st. As always if you have any question contact us at support@flexinnovations.com or call 866 310 3539.

Thank you! - Quique Somenzini - Team Flex Innovations

More Info From Flex

Scaled from the iconic Cap 232EX, World Champion Quique Somenzini designed the QQ Cap 232EX to create an experience never seen before. Optimized aerodynamics combined with the Aura 8 revive the Cap 232's flying performance to highest Flex Innovations standards. Carbon fiber is molded into the EPO foam throughout the fuselage and wings, plywood sub-frame secures the power system and the aluminum landing gear ensuring the airframe is lightweight and rigid. The QQ Cap 232EX offers astonishing rock-solid, stable 3D aerobatic capability, along with smooth, predictable precision flying.

The perfect “next step” 3D aerobatic airplane to follow the QQ Extra 300 or Mamba 10!

Flex Innovations has tuned and matched both the air-frame and power plant to offer amazing flight times of 7-12 minutes. The Cap 232EX comes factory preset with the latest Aura 8 version 1.5+ firmware allowing for increased stabilization and reduced “bounce back”. Aura 8 connects via USB to your windows Tablet or PC, ensuring you have full adjustment of all settings and the latest firmware updates from the Flex Innovations Team.

Looks good Chuck! Is the ball link hardware hex screws and locknuts or just the standard nuts and Philips head? Also did the wings go on and off without any tools are they regular screws? Thanks!

The ball joints are Phillips head with self lock nuts!

The wings slide straight on, but with a normal Phillips head screw each side, it's in the video So yes you need a tool to put the wing on.......

cheers Chuck
