The Kyosho Calmato Alpha 40 Sports EP/GP Toughlon ARF Airplane allows the flyer to enjoy a perfect introduction to low wing flight with optimal maneuverability for loops, rolls and other stunts.This Calamato model is packed with features to make it a much improved kit over previous models. The film covering is upgraded from PVC to superior quality reverse-side printed Toughlon which delivers both improved durability and lighter weight. Urethane clear coating can also be applied to prevent wrinkling over long time periods and unlike PVC films, dry-type cover film can also be applied for damage repairs.
The fuselage features the Calmato’s unique EP/GP convertible design that requires no gluing to dramatically reduce assembly time. New coloring pattern allows coloring on upper and lower surfaces to be changed to improve visibility when flying. The exquisite finish replicates competition model standards and provides an ideal step up for beginners to the sporty performance of low wing flight.

I bought this plane Oct 2019 and finally got around to building and flying it just shy of a year later. I put an OS46 engine in it and flew it last weekend. I have several other planes and I must say, none of them are as much of an absolute joy to fly as this one. Superbly stable, predictable, and it moved me enough to make this comment. I hope more come available soon so everyone else can experience the fun.
