George. Thanks for posting that. First time I've seen the Calypso sloping.

Wow. It looks fairly fast along that crosswind leg down the beach, and it turned in, downwind, very responsively and recovered to cross slope without hesitation. Would you say that this is a fairly good "performance sloper"? I innitially thought it was a beginner's sailplane, but judging by what I just saw I think it will really perform. It reminds me of the old Hobie Hawk with the first ever eliptical wing. That bird really hauled AND was rigid and nearly indistructable. Would you say that the Calypso is as well?
Thanks, Robert
