Default Who is this little guy

Hi,

So I was at the local hobby shop, and I swear this plane just jumped in my truck It looks like it was a kit build because the covering is not all one sheet, it is slightly overlapped. It has gold tail surfaces and the rest is all colored black. It has no markings on it at all, and neither does the engine. So it short does anyone know what model the plane is or the engine? Oh, forgot the dimensions, the wing span is 49" and the length is around 37".

I find interesting the servo bay for the ailerons. How does the servo be installed and is the mount broken? The mount does look broken from the amount of glue in it.

I would also like to know how to adjust the low speed needle valve, the high speed runs ok but the low is rich. If anyone know's what model engine this it would be appreciated!

Thanks,
Sam

Looks like a Fox engine. No idea what the airframe is.

I agree with Steve looks very like a Fox 19 or 25.

The airframe resembles a Phil Kraft Flea Fly but I dont think the tail is right. Might be an OD.

Sig Kaos?
On second thought, the tailplane is different.

Kaos wasn't a Sig product.

This seems to be a scout .15 by caftair, And the engine is a fox .15BB. I seem to have got it running very well, the high speed was already tuned decently, but the low speed was way rich.

I don't want it to be all black because it would be very difficult to see the attitude of the plane. Can I put covering over covering or will I have to rip off the old covering?

Looks like a Wingman II by The Wings Maker.

It looks like the old Sig Kiwi airplane. the low speed needle acts just like the high speed. If the idle is too rich , turn it in a few clicks. Note though that the idle needle will affect the high speed needle setting, but the high speed does not affect the idle setting. Meaning, if you lean out the idle, you will have to richen up the high speed.
