It is a Bird of Time, a very outstanding glider. When you fly it be aware that the L/D ratio is extremely high and the approach to landing will be quite flat. Don't over shoot!

Don't know who made it, but I have one with two sets of wings, one with and one without spoilers, which I presume is what you mean by brakes. They would be like doors on top of the wings that pop up when you activate the servos. They help tremendously in landing, and I suggest you fly it with that wing first. The electric motor is a blessing too as long as you are not a purist!! It is not fast... don't try to push it. It is a thermaling glider and very gentle. You will be pleased. I also suggest, since it is rudder and elevator only, that you keep your turns shallow at first. Don't try to manhandle it, finesse it! Check your wings to insure there are no warps before flight.

Here's another thought. If the person who electrified the one plane did it properly it will look like the motor is pointing down a lot. I usually start with about 7 degrees of down thrust and adjust if needed according to flying characteristics. If the motor is straight horizontally the plane will pitch up dramatically upon application of power. Many gliders have been lost on launch due to insufficient down thrust.
