Question
Identify this glider + any info about it

I was given this glider without any info or servos.
- approx 9 foot span, 3 piece wood wing, sheeted on top
- 4 servo wing, 2 x flap, 2x aileron
- tips plug in with steel rods
- fuselage is fiberglass

Beyond naming it, if you can supply info or a link for CG location, control throws, and servos recommendations it would be a great help. This is the biggest, most complex model I have attempted.

Thanks in advance!

It looks like an Airtronics Legend.

That is an Airtronics Legend. I've got the CG 4" back from the leading edge on mine. I can try to get the control throws later if no one else posts them.

Thanks for the quick replies!

Searching this forum has given me control throws and LOTS of other info.

How about servo recommendations? I saw Hitec HS-81MG and also HS-82MG for wing servos but nothing on rudder and elevator.

Any suggestions and other info most welcome.
