Glider identification


Recommended Posts

I think that is possibly a Flair Albatross 100S modified for a fixed tail standard elevators or possibly then a self build copy... Certainly it was my first thought when seeing the picture. I have one... Two 8 gauge steel wing joiners but All moving tail.

 

2500mm = 98.42"

It definately is not an Algebra, fuselage on the wooden one (800 or 1000) is totally different (rolled Ply) and the tailplane is all moving and sited 1/4 way up the fin from solid 3/8" balsa sheet not built up.  Otherwise Algebras has sheeted foam wings and glass moulded fuselages.

 Not an easy one to identify, it would seem.

Cheers
