The Thermaliser was developed for a club competition, an inexpensive glider that everyone could build and then use to compete against one another in friendly club events. The idea of using the already popular Fusion as a tug platform means that the Thermaliser can be launched in seconds, in fact we have launched 6 in under 3 minutes! There is no need for complicated tug options, the cradle fits on the wing using the wing bands, plug the release servo into a spare channel and you’re ready to go. The cradle is available with the kit or as a separate item here, you can also see how the mechanism releases
Although small, the Thermaliser flies like a larger glider and can clock up some impressive glide times. It is small enough to pack in the car and fly anywhere you can launch it. We have flown from the flat field, off the sand dunes at the beach and off the slope, a versatile little two channel glider that is brilliant fun.
