Anyone know what this is. It has a 52 1/2 inch wing span and is powered by a 40 size engine. It was part of a trade i fell into and looks flyable with some new servos and stuff.

Likely a RCM/Bridi/Great Planes Trainer 40. I have one of the early kits stashed away for a rainy day. Really too fast and neutrally stable to be a good promary trainer. But a lot of fun with some power if you have aileron experience.

I learned to fly myself with only ailerons and no rudder. I am flying a brightstar now trying to learn rudder control
