The one in the first pics, with the white fuse and blue underwing? It's a Ken Stuhr design, as is the Rotor, but it's called a Xica. It's a little bigger than a Rotor, weighs about 50 oz, and has a 66" span. It will fly in pretty light wind, and the roll rate is awesome!
I may convert it back to the original design being a wingeron, with a full flying tail. Right now it is a pitcheron, the tail doesn't move at all.

No. None of the Ken Sturh plane are in production.
If you are liking the Twisty wing planes, get on the list for a shrike from Ed Berris, and Call Dane for a Turbo and a Contender fuse.

LOL!! My Shirke is arriving on tuesday. I own several Cr planes including The turbo. I sold my contender years ago like a nerd I always like the looks of the Rotor. I am looking for another rocket. The mini Dragon on NSP looks tight. It is standard alierons with flaps but she looks like a smoker.

I have a FREDY, same as the Mini-Dragon, it's an AWESOME 60" plane, very fast!

Buy a FREDY carbon from Bob at SUSA, Sal can be problematic to deal with, and Bob stocks parts!

I'll see if I can find pics of mine.

I think they are under $400 on SUSA's site.
I bought mine with 4 D60 dymond servos on RCG for $250.00, its a glass one.
It hadn't been flown yet, and I just had to rip the D-60's out of the wings, and start construction over...
The keel is a tough build, min is heavily modified, and has never broken yet. And mine holds 20 oz's of ballast.

Jason-
Here's the link to a FREDY build thread. Read first, then see if you can track down the sub-nose kit from europe, THEN buy one from Bob at Soaring USA.

Here is the link for the sub nose:
Look in accessories.

Not yet, but it's getting closer.
I still need to bag the stocker wings, and mount the tail to the fuse, and st up the fuse for the two sets of plug-in wings. Then add the gear...

I keep getting pesterized for cores by people! But I take that as a compliment...
