This is my first electric powered glider and I asked my good friend Vernon Horne to test drive it on its maiden flight while I did the video work. The first flight was not only a perfect effort, but just watching this remote control glider soar through the air was intriguing. I equipped it with flaps, but we learned that on landing approaches flaps really weren't needed. When we did employ full flaps the Calypso virtually stop dead in the air and hovered. This is a beautiful aircraft for any pilot to fly and I'm looking forward to some heavy duty thermal flying.
