Default Memory help

I'm trying to remember the name of a slope combat plane that I flew 20 years ago. It had a poly fuselage that was all but indestructible, white foam stabs, elevator and wing (don't remember if it had a rudder). The stabs fit into notches in the tail and were just taped in place (quick change). The wing (around 48" span) had a semi-symmetrical cross-section, ailerons and no dihedral. Mine had a yellow fuse and my friend's was orange. These were tough birds as they survived a number of in flight mishaps (we tried to knock each other out of the air). Mine even survived T-boning the hill where it stuck, nose buried about 4" into the dirt. I gave it away when I left the coast, but am wondering what it was and if they are still being made.

Thanks

Larry

Super Cheeta. Tough plane and fairly fast for its time. Look on Ebay, or RCGroups for sale section. I almost bought one a few years ago for $75 bucks, NIB, so they are around.
