Smooth and forgiving, the Calypso excels as a first electric sailplane. Ailerons are included for enjoying a wide envelope of soaring performance, and by adding optional flaps experienced glider pilots can move up to more advanced thermal chasing. The Calypso's wheel and skid plates allow for both grass and runway landings. The two-piece wing assembles quickly and removes easily for transport and even includes independent aileron servos for future mixing potential. Fuselage comes with large on-board compartment with magnetic hatch allows easy access to the flight battery. Two versions RTF, Rx-R come with all servos and factory-installed brushless power system. RFT version adds Tactic SLT 2.4GHz radio system, 1300mAh 3S battery pack and AC/DC Li-polymer charger. There's also an ARF version available for those who want to equip the Calypso with their choice of radio and motor. All require only a screwdriver for final assembly with no gluing and can be flight-ready in 30 minutes! The Calypso ARF version is the most affordable, and provides discerning pilots with the most options for the power system, radio system and batteries. Bright, high-contrast trim scheme is easy to track at high altitudes.

Great plane
Robert Pacheco (Miramar Beach, FL) 5/27/2013 7:30 AM
Sometimes you want a simple aircraft that flies great. Great price. Great performance. 38 min flights with a 1300 mAh batt. And that considering I'm "thermally impaired"

Nice Flyer
Mark Latanzi (Lancaster, CA) 2/15/2013 3:13 AM
Upgrade the Servos and beef the motor mount, also add 1/8" shim to horizontal tail stab for proper elevator adjustment. Good Airframe and very enjoyable to fly. Installing a Hacker motor reduces weight and increases flight times, use at least 30C Battery, also BB Spinner and 10x6 Graupner Blades make nice upgrade, easy to transport.
