Help me identify this please!!

Hi, I bought this airframe off of a builder but never got the name of the model... I also don't know what it's worth.... Can someone help me identify it? It is very well built and looks like a piece of art. I'd rather sell It to someone much more experienced. I was told it was a pylon racer and is expected to do 150-175mph with an os55 or 46. Also, if I were to build it would you recommend doping it, monokote, or fiberglassing with a gel coat. Thanks! PM me if your interested in buying it. I can meet you up to 100 miles from Orange, CA If the price is reasonable. Thanks all!

Well it looks fast! I have never seen one like that maybe it was his own design.

I don't think I can handle an almost 200mph plane
I would love to see it fly though. The guy said he put over 400 hours into building it. It's a foam core with some carbon reinforcement inside the foam, then sheeted with the balsa. I don't know if it was a kit or a one off build though... Everything looks perfectly symmetrical, and it feels very well balanced. Its super light too. Everything is sanded perfectly and is smooth.

OH! And the alerons have internal rods so the servo can be a single mini inside the fuse. The everything is hinged with nylon pinned hinged and moves freely. I also got a can of new old stock dope from the guy ill include if anyone's interested.

Light weight fiberglass, three layers of resin, it's the best especially if it's fast.

The reason you cant get an answer is because this is in the wrong forum for "information"..... The mods will bump this thread to the "General Fuel Airplanes" forum and you will have your answer in like 5 minutes

No worries. Usually "reported" is a bad thing but in this case it will help you out a lot.....just as soon as a mod gets to it

Lol....I seriously am trying to help but part of the point is that some guys take the forsale forums waaay to serious....I am one of them

Im not sayin thats a good thing either but........when a thread goes into a "discussion" phase it wrecks all the forum scrolls and spys etc cause it pops up and pops up and pops up.....while we all want to help......its a pain.

There is one "discussion " thread in all of the classifieds and its in Trader Talk and its called "Thread for the Seriously Addicted"

I know, cause I started it a while back. Its a sickness.....and we all admit it.....and we all know its silly.....but that doesnt change the facts

Cheers and good luck on your ID search.
