We are always looking for a better plane.  I recently became aware of a plane that had some unusual flight characteristics.  It can fly off water,  It can fly off grass.  It can fly off a runway.  It can be flown indoors.  It can do aerobatics.  It is an excellent plane to put lights on and fly at night.  It flies slow enough to be flown by a new flyer but is unique enough to entertain experienced flyers. 

 It is not the only plane a person should own but I would bet that any flyer of most any skill level would enjoy the personality and flexibility of the Capricorn. 

 I am not one to get excited about another person's design but I did this time.  I prepared building instructions using readily available materials.  These instructions can be found on the Capricorn Evolution Tutorial at the following site:
