Default Can anyone identify this plane.

I received this plane for a job I did, the lady said that her husband built it and he was a life long flyer, they were from the Chicago area. It has a 33" WS and 32" in length. It was a kit for sure, I'm not sure if was glassed but definitely not monocote or other covering. It looked like it had something like a .25 size or less.

It looks like a Quarter Midget which was an early racing class based on .15 sized engines. It may be an El Bandito, but looks like it is missing the wingtips. If so, it may be a Fred Reese design. This size of plane flies well with a 25 sport engine or a good .15 racing engine.

I just looked at the wing tips and they do look like it had something on the tips, I was going to turn it into a electric, maby 4-500 watts, it will be a quick one.
