Default Need help identifying a couple of planes

The first one has a wingspan of51", and the fuse is39 1/2", to the end of the spinner. The second one has a wingspan of 56", and the fuse is 41", to the end of the spinner. The second one uses rubber bands to attach the wing, and there is no landing gear. Not sure if it was designed to be that way. Also, the second one is 3 channel, no ailerons. Thanks in advance.

The one on the right might be a PT-40?

The one on the left is either a Scat Cat or a Sonic 500 (Quickie 500 racer )

Thanks guys, I believe the builder left the gear off because he wanted to fly in the hay field behind his house. His widow said he would hand launch it, and kill the engine when he was ready to land, and land in the tall hay.
