Now that you've mastered your Calmato Trainer 40, what's the next step? Although you may be eager for that P-51 or Extra acrobat, they are very unforgiving, and inexperienced pilots can get in trouble very quickly. To develop the reflexes necessary to fly these high-performance machines, an intermediate low-wing trainer/sport airplane would he the logical next step.
The Kyosho Calmato Sports is an excellent choice for a second plane. It has a generous wing area, a constant-chord wing, a symmetrical airfoil, long-moment arms and tricycle landing gear. The symmetrical airfoil gives it good aeronautic potential because it makes inverted flying easy. The constant-chord wing produces predictable stall characteristics, allowing the plane to slow without fear of tip-stalling. The generous wing area and long-moment anus produce smooth, stable flight.
The kit The Calmato Sports is also part of Kyosho's SQS ARF series and is constructed similarly to the Trainer 40. As with the Trainer 40, the Sports ARF has a high degree of prefabrication and doesn't require any glue. The planes are available in red, green, yellow and blue trim schemes. Since the construction is similar, we will focus on the differences between the Sports version and Trainer 40.
Wing as on the Trainer 40, is done by epoxiening the wing halves together instead of using the adhesive tape. As the main landing gear is in the wing, nylon straps and screws secure the landing gear. Again, the wheels are attached at the factory.
Fuselage: The only difference here is canopy installation. Apply the neat instrument panel decal and canopy trim tape (both supplied) and add a pilot figure from The World Models. The very attractive tinted canopy is held in place by four screws. Place the battery under the fuel tank, and this bring the CG to the correct location without any added weight.
The Kyosho Sports is stable yet maneuverable; in other words, it's a "go where you point it" airplane. The Sports looks good, and like the Trainer 40, it is well built and light. Those who have recently graduated from their high-wing trainers will learn new acrobatic maneuvers easily, and experienced pilots will find this plane an excellent all-around Sunday flyer. Master the Kyosho Calmato Sports, and you'll be able to handle just about any airplane.
