Any recognize this 46" Yak?

Any recognize this 46" Yak? Bought this Yak 54 at an auction this weekend, but can't find anything about it. Wing span is about 46" - 46.5". It has no logos or text anywhere. Dark yellow, dark blue and white.

I wish it was a 3DHS. No SFGs, nor could they added. (traditional wing tips)

If you really wanted SFG's... that's not terribly hard to change up
Depending on if the rounded tips are just rounded blocks or built up, it may be easier than you'd think.
(For that matter, you could always build SFG's with 'cradles' of sorts and keep the rounded tips if you wanted)

Do you have any photos of the inside or the bottom? Thinking maybe it's been recovered and had some mods done.

Inside and bottom pictures. Also note that it has a weird wing bolt. Three plywood disks with a bolt through them.

The rudder pull-pull is also odd in that the cables run through nylon tubes.

That is an odd way to mount a pull-pull rudder servo.

Not only does it rock back and forth a little, the former it attaches to is too flexible and bends under load. Just one of a number of things to "fix" on it. But, it was very cheap.

Thanks Lee and Charlie. It's a NeoPlanes. (The collective knowledge around here is amazing!)
