    Upload them to the site - it would help a lot!

    Unfortunately, most sailplanes have similar looking fuselages, and I can't think of anything with a 63'' span off hand.

    Thanks

    So forward them to your own email address and then save the pictures to your hard drive and then you can post them here using the "manage attachments" at the bottom of the "New Reply window.

    Without pictures there's no way anyone will be able to give you any help at all.

    RE: need help dont know what it is ?????



    What kind of tail surfaces does it have - solid sheet or made of sticks and covered?
    Does the main wing have a bend in the middle (dehedral) or the middle and again further out (3 bends: polydehedral)
    Does it have a radio installed - if so, how big are the servos?
    Any graphics or decals?

    This might help us identify it!

    There was a simple V dihedral kit for electrics from Hobby Lobby a few years back called a Skimmer 400. Your model looks a lot like that one but altered to use a power pod instead of a nose mounted electric motor.

    No idea. But IF it is the same model then the kits were selling for $17 at the end to blow them out. With the engine attached maybe ask for $40 for the pair and be prepared to come down to $35 to $30 if need be?

    From what I can see I believe bmathews is corect on the Hobby Lobby Skimmer. Nice Sunday tool around the patch but not much for thermals.

    Me again, you really need to get some bigger pictures. And better lit as well. You're not making it easy for any of us to help you in this search. Even when I open the thumbnails the picture is still just a little 1.5 by 2.0 inch sort of thing. And your lack of decent lighting just makes it plain old hard to tell much of anything. The file size should be up somewhere around 80 to 120 Kbytes to come across here as a decent picture.

    Can't help on the glider but the engine is an early version of the Cox Golden Bee. It's an early one because the cylinder has the open exhaust ports instead of the later slits. It's also seen a lot of run time or sun since the anodizing seems dull. They were a bright gold ano colour when new and this one looks very washed out. Price on the engine alone if it still starts easily and runs clean would be in the $10 to $15'ish range.
