Default What is it?

So at the end of last summer I picked up this plane at a swap meet for $30 and have spent all this time trying to find out what it is and what battery it requires but with no luck so lets see if you know? Everything on the plane works but I haven't flown it yet and would like to know more before I try.

The plane is 43.5 inches long, Wingspan is 36 inches so its a fairly large plane. Im guessing the ducted fan is 70mm and that's about all we have to go on.

Any Guesses? Thanks Kosh

I think it is a Habu, from Horizon Hobby.
I found this picture that shows the same lines and the name.

Some are shown in white with Navy and Air Force Thunderbird schemes.

Im sure you are right but none show up in that color and decal setup so perhaps it was crashed and rebuilt. At least I know what battery it takes now so thanks.

Kosh,

Pretty sure that's a Dynam Meteor (basically a knock off of the Habu).

I was going to say the same looks like a meteor

Happy flying may your crashes be limited and if they are not limited let them be cool.
