Can you help identify this sailplane?

My son won this electric sailplane at our club xmas raffle. It was in a pretty scabby state when we got it but he stripped it all down, recovered it and repainted it. The problem is we don't know what plane this is and it would help us find out more about it if we knew what it was. Any suggestions?

Specs

Span 60"
Chord 8" at root, 5.5 " at tip
Tip flares up
Slight dihedral , wings have ailerons.
Wing area 405 sq in = 2.81 sq ft
Length 39"

Weight with a 480 and 7 cell 600 pack is 39ozs
Wing loading 13.9 oz/sq ft

Prop 6 x 3 graupner folder.
Jeti 180 speed controller

Apart from what model is this, will this motor power combination work? Should I go to 8 cells?
