The Calypso, a design from Hanno Prettner was an exercise in simplifying the growing complexity of F3A aerobatic models. It is still a fantastic F3A aerobatic model that won the 1983 World RC Aerobatic Champs. Here's your chance to fly a retro version of the model.

The Calypso performs amazing aerobatic routines with a 60 size two stroke, 90 four stroke or 10cc petrol, or 5 cell electric motor.

We have re-engineered some aspects of the build to simplify construction, and better align with modern building practices. To accompany the modifications we have completely re-drawn the plan to match.

Also included is a vacuum formed cowling and canopy.

Model photo coming soon but enjoy the painting of its namesake by Jan Styka.
