We’re incredibly excited to announce the TBS CAIPIRINHA II – the wing that puts your piloting, pronounciation and spelling skills to the test! 🙂 It’s a gentle long range cruiser that turns into a fierce mountain diver with just a slight push on your pitch stick.
The Caipirinha II is based on the Wipeout by HappyFlyers from Switzerland! A polycarbonate battery bay, push-to-open equipment bays, a PDB with up to 3 battery inputs, wiring channels that stretch across the entire wing, a huge 6mm-plywood-lined center section are just some of the innovations that make this plane stand out from the rest. An ultra-sleek and aerodynamic finish ensure that no energy goes to waste, and a very good glide slope makes thermaling or long distance slopeing highly enjoyable.
The PNP kit from TBS is equipped with high quality, digital metal gear servos, a CP2814-1050kV Cobra motor, 50A HobbyWing ESC and high quality Aeronaut CAM Carbon folding propellers. Vertical climbs, rocket-like punch outs, or highly efficient cruising are all within the design parameters of this setup!
We can confidently say it’s going to be the only long range cruiser you will ever need, and the only flying wing in its weight class with such a performance envelope.
