Hi Phillip,

No foamy class.

What is a Thermal Dancer?

Building a Art Hobby Odyssey 2.8 to go along with my Harrier prototype.
Also working on molds for the molded version.

I'll be there with my Kappa 35 if I can get Skip Miller to ship it. They claim the new shipment is in stock.

Mystique as a back up.

ALES 'Thermal Dancer' ...'V' tail version :)

Thermal Dancer converted to electric for ALES competitions.
This is number 1 and I have another conventional tail #2 in the works for ALES

They make VERY Nice ALES ships, (although originally designed for TD), and have a large diameter nose fuse area for some serious outrunner 'Wattage' to either climb to 200 meters in 18 secs or really range out....
