Default Another 20 yr old plane

Here is another 20 year old plane that is ready to go. Anyone seen one of these before? This is called the Alto. It has a 72" wing span and has a v-tail. I don't see any vtails any more. It is a pretty fast plane and has a folding prop so you can still thermal.

I have the same question. Right now it hangs on the wall and I don't even know if you can get parts, such as a battery, for them anymore

The alto is alot bigger. I may have to see about either getting the Aerobird flying or using the parts on something else.
