Default Can you identify this jet?

Trying to identify this. Does anybody know what the name of this jet is? Thought hotspot or Kangaroo but neither seemed to fit.

Thx!

Might be a Blade. Same as the Flash but the flash had a single vertical fin. The Blade had the twin verticals.

After flying it you will end up with the same or more intensified effects as if you have had 3 capucchinos, 2 expressos and one 12 oz can of Red Bull.

Yeap! That's what it feels like

All,
The jet is a Stringray by Yellow Aircraft and is a real pocket rocket to fly. The interior is tight for fuel and turbine ancilliaries but is an excellent flier with one of the smaller turbines such as the Wren 44 Gold. I've send several of these fly well at the Bay of Quinte Jet Rally in Ontario, CA. with the older Wrens @ 8 lb of thrust.

I'm still building my Stingray.
I am still unbuilding what the PO started so that it can be done rite.
Mine will have the 44 Gold on it.

Sgt Shay,
I stand corrected, as the correct spelling is: The Stingray, advertised as a turbine trainer by Yellow Aircraft Intl., Kit # STY 100. Sorry for the initial error-too much holiday cheer.
TheStingray specsfollow: Overall Length: 58", Wing Span: 52", Dry Weight: 12 lbs, Power: 10-12 lbs thrust turbine. Intro Price: $395.00 USD. This is right off their flyer on this model.
The Stingray is an excellent jet for the smaller turbines, 10-12 lbs thrust,and is purpose-built for these engines. It does fly fast and gets small in a real hurry.
Contact Yellow Aircraft Intl for latest price and availability.
