Top Model has a knack for creating designs that stand the test of time. The Thermic Dream is one of those designs, a bit dated, heavy by today's thermalling standards but as a sport glider, it shines! Whether you like to slope or whistle around the sky under power the TD is up to the challenge. The Thermic Dream is an elegant, high performance electric sailplane with a slippery planform and good energy retention.
Here are some details about the construction. The glass epoxy fuselage is stiff and roomy with a beautiful white gel coat, exterior finish. The 3 meter wing sports a S7012 airfoil and is traditional sheeted foam construction expertly finished in Oracover film. The 3 peice wing is equipped with independent flaps and ailerons giving the ability to change wing camber, add snap flaps or provide strong braking when needed. A powerful brushless motor system running on a 4-5s lipo, will provide an exciting climb rate with flight times around 30min with careful throttle usage. To peruse the build manual click here.
