Here is the finished Thermic . Will test fly when rain stops. long flights after shelter in place. I used hs-55 servos , spektrum AR410 receiver and graupner 4N-300 AA battery pack.

I satarted this build back in October and I am about 70% done. It is a lot of work but Tom saves you a ton of time with his short kit. The fuse, rudder and stab are done and covered. The wings are framed up ready for covering. I am modifying it for 2 channel RC. It is a very beautiful glider worth seeing if you are into sailplanes. I will add more pictures soon.
