Product Description

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. Three versions — the RTF, Tx-R and Rx-R — come with a factory-installed brushless power system. There’s also an ARF version available for those who want to equip the Calypso with their choice of radio and motor. Since there’s no gluing to do and the only tool needed is a screwdriver, you can have the Calypso flight-ready in just 30 minutes!

This Calypso ARF version is the most affordable, and provides discerning pilots with the most options for the power system, radio system and batteries.
