    CAP 232. INTRODUCTION. Thank you for choosing the CAP 232 ARTF by SEAGULL MODELS. The CAP 232 was designed with the intermediate/advanced sport scale in mind. It is a semi scale airplane which is easy to fly and quick to assemble. The airframe is conventionally built using balsa, plywood to make it stronger than the average ARTF , yet the design allows the aeroplane to be kept light.
