Is this really a Mirage?........It needs a new name...Ideas?

For those of you who may not be following my build of a Custom Mirage in the Thermal section,here's a couple pictures.

I'm making it an electric and will probably use it for ALES.

I custom built and stretched the fuselage. Custom built the tail feathers,and made the wing a 5 panel wing with custom tips. The stock Mirage is a 3 Panel wing with square tips.

Therefore,shouuld this be called a Mirage,even though the box it came in says Mirage. It doesn't resemble a Mirage and probably won't fly like a Mirage.

So what should it be called?

Eddie

+1 David, cause it stil has the same airfoil and that means it will have the basically the same speed range but should handle a bit better. Does look nice, will be pretty in the air.

Mirage Ex , for 'extended'

Place the Ex as a subscript off the end of the 'e' in Mirage. Place it across the top of the right wing.
