I bought this plane uncovered back in the spring, made some changes, such as mounting my own composite gear slightly forward, reinforcing the wing center joint and enlarging the elevator, and ended up with a surprisingly quick and aerobatic, yet slow landing airchine.
Well, it did the goat routine the other day. Wing and tail survived relatively unscathed, (both wing and horiz tail are fully symetrical) and I was interested in a winter project rebuilding the fuse.
However, the younger gentleman I bought it from was also not the builder, so there is a question of lineage. From the way the fuse interlocks I would guess this is a kit, but no searches online, (originally thought it was some version of the ubiquitous "Stick" family") give me any idea.
I'm hoping a member can identify this plane and/or point me in the direction of a fuse, or at least plans for one.

Re: What Aircraft?
That's definately a carl goldberg falcon 56 tail. The fuse with the cut outs is not the original falcon 56, but could be from one of the later production kits.
there were updated versions over the years.
the falcon 56 was my first rc model.
Bouncing about the living room, my then three year old grandson declared himself "a kangaroo".
"If you're a Kangaroo, what is Grampie", I ask.
His reply: "you a dinosaur"

Re: What Aircraft?
Goldberg Falcon -perhaps 56 Version III with that fuse? Tail is MK II version.
BTW, the Falcons have a semi-symmetric airfoil, not fully symmetric. Stab only is symmetric.
