Flyzone Calypso - Cruise on air.  
RTFTx-RRx-rARF

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!

Flyzone Calypso Tx-R
Tx-R™ Transmitter-Ready

More ease. More choices. More fun.

Why go with a Tx-R? Glad you asked.

Start with speed and ease. Tx-R aircraft help you save time and get you to the flight line faster. They’re assembled and finished and all onboard electronics are installed …including an SLT receiver. Take a Tx-R out of the box, and you’re practically ready to fly. Now that’s fast and easy.   

Add flexibility to the mix. With a Tx-R, you don’t have to buy a special radio to fly. That’s because all Tx-R aircraft come with an SLT receiver. And since they do, you have two very attractive choices.

One, you can fly a Tx-R with a 2.4GHz SLT radio system from Tactic or other manufacturer. Just look for a radio with an "SLT" logo; that tells you they’re 100% compatible with the receivers in all Tx-R aircraft. 

However, you may already have a favorite transmitter and don’t want to give it up. That brings up choice #2: the Tactic AnyLink2. Attach it to your transmitter and it does something amazing: it broadcasts a true 2.4GHz signal that any SLT receiver can pick up. It works with virtually all transmitters, regardless of brand, band or modulation. And It not only costs less than a new radio; it costs less than many receivers.

For ease, economy, choices and more fun, there’s nothing like Tx-R.

 

The Calypso Tx-R includes:

  • Assembled, factory-finished airframe with landing wheel and skid plates

  • Factory-installed 28-30-1100kV brushless outrunner motor, 18A ESC & servos  

  • Factory-installed TR624 SLT receiver compatible with all SLT transmitters and the Tactic AnyLink2

  • 11.1V 1300mAh 15C LiPo battery

  • AC/DC balancing LiPo charger

  • (5) "AA" batteries
