Can U Name This Plane?
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hello,
I recently got this plane from someone who has given up the hobby due to many flight failures. It has an O.S. 46 in it and all the servos BUT, is missing the top wing. I have searched all over and can not find this plane. It is a very basic top wing trainer will an ugly plain Jane, wallpaper looking covering (notice the bizzare and dizzying monocote). If any one has seen this or can tell me who makes it, I would greatly appreciate it. It is too hard to try and order a wing set of another manufacturer and hope it fits, because most people know what they are ordering for. So I am going to test the skills of the people on this forum and see who comes up with what first. Thank you for your time.

P.S. If no one knows the answer but some one knows where I can buy a top wing measuring 10 and 1/4 inch wide (to fit the saddle) and unknown length for fairly cheap, that would be great too!

if the top wing attaches with a single post in the front and a single nylon screw in the back it maight just be a modified Nextar 46.

No it's not a nexstar or any of the hobbico planes I know of. It is slightly smaller than a nexstar and just a bit bigger than my avistar. It has 2 small blind nuts around 4mm at the back of the saddle for the wing and has a slot shape in the front for wing. Thanks for the guess but that's not it. I figured the ugly covering would give this plane away. Look like floor tile, eeeew!

G'day Mate,
It's a Skyraider Mk 1, you can buy the wing from World Models.
And any other parts you need.

You could probably take the wing from almost any similar sized trainer and fit it. You might have to modify the wing saddle but thats pretty easy. See if anybody in your club crashed a trainer and still has a wing intact that they would be willing to part with.

If you have access to coroplast you actually build a coro wing for it in an hour or 2 easy.

G'day yourself Allan,
"You is a genius" and I thank you much sir for finding this planes identity in less than 24hrs at that! Isn't this the best forums in the world!!! It is like have 100,000 friends to help you out with comments and suggestions, speaking from their real life experience. I feel kinda stupid now that I see it is a sky raider. A very popular plane for some clubs and the last plane I forgot to look at! Without the decal garb it can be quite difficult to identify some of these planes. So thanks again Allan and to all who stopped to take a look. :)
