Help!

Unknown DLG. #2, IDed as a Polecat XP5 by Tom K.


Picked these up from a friend who is getting out of gliders. He has no clue what they are, but thinks they may be from Susa.

This is #2. A few (possibly) distinguishing characteristics:
1.5 meter Kevlar/Carbon fiber wing.
Balsa / bagged fiberglass tail feathers.
Carbon fiber pod/boom fuselage.
Horizontal hinged tail on two pylons. Nylon hold down screws.
Carbon fiber pushrods run inside teflon tubes down the outside of boom.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you.

I think we may have a winner! Thank you so much, Tom.

It never ceases to amaze me, I've asked for half a dozen IDs on various sailplanes, and someone, SOMEWHERE always knows what it is. You guys are Good!
