Thanks, GH. That fills in a couple of blanks in my mind down that branch of the Alpha family tree.

I have no sense of how common or uncommon those parts were, or why they were being sold as part of what I took to be an Alpha III/Electro-Launch starter set, but that still helps. I thought they were uncommon (I'd never seen them before or even pictured) and apparently whoever I was bidding against this afternoon thought so as well. I doubt he really wanted to pay $200 (including shipping) for two Electro-Launches, neither of which were Phantom E-Ls.
