The DeeCee Thunder is a boost glider on a grand scale. This big bird is lifted up in the air by a 24mm "power pod", similar to NASA's Space Shuttle. It then disengages from the pod in mid-air for a lazy gliding recovery back to earth. The pod recovers separately via parachute.
All Edmonds kits enjoy the simplicity of his signature "jigsaw puzzle" design phylosophy and the DeeCee Thunder is no exception. This kit is the easiest way to experience the power of Thunder. Just put together the eight wood parts, assemble the booster pod, and you are up and flying! A D12-3 motor hurls the big DeeCee Thunder up where everybody can see it, then lets it float back in a nice, solid glide. Hmmm, I wonder what would happen with a E15-4...!
