Help Needed To Identify Electric Glider

Hi Guys (and Gals?)

I've just bought the glider shown in the photograph off eBay, and it's missing the canopy.
Before I break out the scissors and coke bottles, does anyone have any idea what it might be please?
It would be great to get the correct canopy, but I'm not going to hold my breath!
600 can motor, Graupner Prop and pre cut ply formers in the servo bay (one has "DC-3" stamped on it (But I know it's not one of those!!!!!) It has a ply tray directly under the wing joiner for the flight pack, and a hollow tube along the top inside of the fuselage for the RX Antenna.
It has a 2280mm span (winglet to winglet) and the Fuselage is 1150mm long if that's any help?

Thanks in advance

Andy

Looks like one of the old gliders made by Scorpio that HobbyLobby used to sell.
Not the 'Palio' I don't think.

Thank you!!

That looks like it!!! Unfortunately, if it's an old Hobby Lobby item, chances of getting spares are unlikely???
Oh well, gives me a starting point though.
Thank you for taking the time to help me out though, Much Appreciated!!

Regards

Andy
