Default Need help identifying airplane, SBEC and speed control

I recently found a used pattern plane in the back room of a local hobby store and had to have it (tired of buying foamies). The plane seams to be fiberglass fuse with foam core balsa sheeted wings. Found a makers label inside that says CPLR. It's about 78" long from spinner to end of rudder, and a wingspan of 72". It has a JETI model SBEC 40 and a Hacker speed control.
Looking to ID the plane and some specs. Also what Lipo batteries I can run in it. I was told a 3s or 4s by the store owner but he didn't know ANYTHING else about it and the SBEC.

Possibly a ZNLine Alliance. Go to ZNLine.com, they kitted a lot of CPLR’s early designs.
Nice looking model, should fly well.

Hello

I'm not sure maybe a Synergie which is the plane designed after the Alliance.
The front of the Alliance is rounded and that of the Synergy has two edges.
It is a 2 X 2 and therefore flies with 10 S batteries.
The appropriate controller is minimum for example Jeti Master Mezon 95 up to Mezon 130

I think you nailed it with the plane! If I run dual 5s lipos, how many mAh should each on be? 5000, 6000 or ???

Hello

I use 2 x 5S Hacker 5000 mAh on my planes.
the duration of the flight is approximately 9 minutes including 6 mins with motor.

I think that could be a 3D version of Synergy, look at the big elevator and ailron rudders. Almost the same as F3A version of Synergy but with bigger rudders.
