Yes but....what is it?  The LA-1 is getting finished and there's a Tippo in my near future possibly (one of my buddies that's scared to fly it).  We're just trying to figure out what it is

Thanks Johnny.  As one gets older, one appreciates confirmation.  It's been a long time since I've seen one of these so I just wanted to make sure.

It's not a Super Lucky Fly

It looks almost like a GP Tracer (cowl doesn't look right) but it could be
an older Great Planes/Tower aircraft.

It looks like an old PVC covered ARF with a different cowl and canopy. The plastic tips and fin fairing were common on the old school ARFs.

Not a Super Lucky Fly. I cut my teeth on a Lucky Fly back in the day.

It's not a tracer, I have one. Kind of looks like a Joker.

It's got some Mick Reeves Gangster appeal. Maybe some dimensions would help?

This is actually one of my friend's.  I'll see if I can get some dimensions from him next week.  We're off to Crowley, LA for the Cajun Nats.  Thanks guys!
