Smooth and forgiving, the 4-5 channel Flyzone Calypso EP Glider excels as a first electric sailplane. Experienced glider pilots will also enjoy its wide range of soaring performance - and can elect to use the flap option (requiring a linkage set sold separately) for advanced thermal chasing. Two versions of the Calypso are available, in varying degrees of completeness and convenience to match any pilot's needs: fully equipped Ready-to-Fly (RTF); and Transmitter-Ready (Tx-R™), with an installed SLT™ receiver that can be controlled with AnyLink™ using almost any flight transmitter the pilot already owns. All include a factory-installed brushless power system and take only a screwdriver for final assembly.

Made of durable AeroCell™ foam, the Calypso features a two-piece wing that removes easily for transport, with independent aileron servos that allow mixing. The tail assembles and aligns by tightening just one screw. Factory-finished with a bold green and black trim, the Calypso is easy to track at high altitudes. Enjoy easy hand launches and long flight times with brushless power…take advantage of the wheel and skid plates for grass for runway landings.
