Makes me think of a Smith Miniplane. I know there's a number similar.

No problem. It made me think of the Miniplane, especially how the lower wing joins the fuselage, the upper wing being straight ( as opposed to swept like a Pitts or Lil Stinker) and the shape of the tail surfaces.
Regardless of what it is, sure looks like you have yourself a nice airplane.

Yes it is. I checked out the Smith and it may very well be an rc design to mimic the full scale homebuilt. The bump behind the cockpit on the turtledeck is missing but the rest looks the same. I maidened it with a Saito 45O R3. It flew good. I was hoping to find factory cg settings but was unable to find data on it. I picked it up in toledo cheap for an engine test bed.
fun stuff!
