Unknown Electric Glider

Hey Guy's
I received this glider. Unknown make. I am pretty sure it's a good +10 years old. It has a Kontronik Funn500-27 geared motor (unknown gear ratio) with a Cam 14:9.5 prop, Kontronik Smile 40-6-18 opto isolated and was using 8 cell nicads (dead). Thinking to change it over to a 3s 2200 lipo config . I checked a few of the arf sites but haven't figured out whose make of model it would be. Wondering if anyone recognizes it?

Thanks in advance for any help

Al

Looks rather like a Reichard something or another. Definitely European (Chzek).

More help if we get the wing span and length.

Looks to be 2 aileron, 2 flap.

What does the top of the fuse say? cant make it out.

Thank you so much. That does look to be it, a Reichard XL3200. Wing span is 3.2m it has flaps and ailerons with the HS81.
You have been a great help.
Cheers
