Default Please Help With Indentity

Can anyone indentify this plane. It has a 75 inch wing and one has an elevator on one side of the Stab. Please help so that I can get this plane in the air. It needs a tank but I don't know where it goes.


Thanks,
Jamie

Your photos are too tiny to make it out, but it looks like the wings ar on rubber bands???

Looks like a simple "box" style of construction.

If so, take the wing off, and see if you can fit a tank right behind the engine firewall.

Better photos would be good.

Ok, I have posted a picture of the inside. The wings are rubber band wit a single dowel in the front. I may have to use a small tank to get between the servos and the forewall so that the tank and carb are lined up. I wish I could fine a name for the old plane.

Dallaire Sportster The original was 108" but they are kitted and there are plans in several different sizes.

I don't think it's the Del Sportster. This plane as the under camber wing and a airfoil stab.

Mike,

Wings were held on with rubber bands regularly before the 1970s when R/C was starting to become more and more popular. Examples of note are the Goldberg Falcon and Skylark series, the Das Ugly Stick and others. It was back then that the transition to “bolt” on wings started. Many Free Flight planes still use rubber bands to minimize any damage on landing.

I can’t give you the name of the plane but it may be a Free Flight converted to R/C assist (hence the single elevator) and room only for a small fuel tank needed for free flight. If so, it may have a steep climb out on launch so be prepared.

Jamie – you may want to tweak the landing gear to have some toe in if you ever plan to take off from the ground. Pictures 1 & 4 show a bunch of toe out which is not good for take off.

Pics are hard to see, but it would almost remind me of a Modelcraft 'Commando', enlarged 150%. Jim
