TBS CAIPIRINHA 2 ***Owner's Thread***

I guess that this would be a very popular FPV wing and many owners would share here their experience, I hope to be one soon


The most efficient and smooth long range cruiser the world of FPV has ever seen!

We're incredibly excited to announce the TBS CAIPIRINHA II - the wing that puts your piloting, pronunciation 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 CP2814-1150kV 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.

Small, lightweight, fly anywhere design
Ultimate in flight stability and endurance
Virtually indestructible EPP/Plywood construction
Pre-cut camera, servo, battery, R/C receiver and video transmitter slots

So wonder what they used for a battery in the video, I see the recommended size. Didn't see any mention if the reverse cutouts came with it either unless I missed it, not planning on running a GoPro. Still think I'm going to have to get one, been eyeballing the caipirinha 1 for years now.

I plan to use 4S 5200mah battery, which should provide me more than an hour flight.
It looks as the pre-cut are there , although I don't have a GoPro session, so I will see what camera and where to put it

This was just published on a Facebook group:

Since first batch-wave of caipis shipped around the planet and no one shares any footage people starting bad rumors about this nice bird.
Just to revoke the speculations of „not fly‘able“ and the other BS what pisses me off makes me sharing my not really interesting but confirming footage this bird does great!
Today not spectacular but breezy and foggy conditions the bird performed very well.
As you can see and calculate wind has been around 55kph/30mi and gusts up to 80/50 it enjoyes being airborne and performs in every situation.

For the subbers :
I do fly every single day but raindays.. stay tuned for my updates

It’s very hard to setup the CoG and get it airborne smooth

Wings are hard to launch. Heavy wings are 10 times harder to launch.

My first wing was a ritewing z3 with a 4s 5200 so I feel all these people's pain.

This wing looks really nice. If I wanted a bigger wing I'd definitely get this.

93cm wingspan with 1.4kg seems too much wing loading, guess not easy to handle at low speed, and launching too

I am also waiting on the pnp kit. I have the electronics tested and ready for when it arrives. In the meantime I have been watching other people builds closely.
I am a little concerned about the winglets. It seems to me that they are made from lightweight material and are fixed to the wing with only two small wood screws. These winglets will have to take the brunt of every landing this plane sees.
It would seem to me the included winglets would be better used as templates for cutting new ones out of ply or fiberboard. Some proper threaded anchors can be set into the wing before bolting the winglets on.
Any one have thoughts on this?
