Slope glider, fast but no-name

I now have more aircraft than my transmitter can store, so this glider should go. Fast, thin-wing slope glider with various dings as shown in the pictures. Carbon-fiber wing with HS81s. Single elevator servo, probably an HS81 but the label is hidden. Wing has been cracked and fixed, and boom has been cracked and fixed, as shown in the pictures. Leading edge has a ding as shown. No RX or battery.
Too big to ship, so let's say "pick-up in West Los Angeles or the Valley". $100 obo, Paypal please.

By the way, does anybody recognize this glider and know its name?
Thanks, Jim

That's a Starling. I've had one for many years. Excellent slope ship.

That`s right, I have one too, the Sparrow is larger isn`t it, bought it about 10 or 11 years ago.

Starling

Definately a Starling. I had one for several yrs. Very fast and I could put it into a wicked flat spin.
