This guy is great! Service, product, all. He'll answer questions and help you out. You can go further on a smaller budget by doing a little more work to the finished plane. He has high performance gliders, some electric, slope/TD/multitask, mostly traditional airframe and a flying wing, sheeted foam core wings. I would buy more from them.
Like refined designs, high performance slope soaring, flying wing designs, and crash resilience? These people have some great looking high performance EPP wings, they answer your questions, shipping is quick, I would definitely buy more from them.
I spooked over an incoming text message. The only parts good are the spinner and prop and possibly the motor and some of the servos. About $500 - $600 down the drain. It was at Baylands about 40 mins ago.

It's different but equally valuable. Maybe you can't do dives and aerobatics on a constant basis like a motorized glider can but the slope and thermal combo is a plus and you can fly all day on just one battery. Highly recommended, but I hear it's only good for a short time in the beginning of the spring, during those times phenomenal for light to medium weight birds.

So far (Agena ES from Art Hobby). I HIGHLY recommend www.arthobby.com. You may have to do more work but the price is good that way and it's high quality parts, you can build it how you want and finish it how you want. I added flaps to mine. And Art Hobby are the MASTERS of customer service!
Here is a link to a video prior maiden flight after programming:
Oh! Magnets make it so easy to glue the pushrod sleeves inside the tail boom! Remove magnets when cured. Only works with steel pushrod. The pushrod sleeves nowadays are so weak that they absolutely must be secured. Be sure to avoid gluing at ends where you need some freedom and be sure to protect the ends of the sleeves and rod from glue and don't do it over nice flooring. If it runs down the pod fitted end, no prob, just use Super Solvent.
I figured I'd solder the servo extensions at different locations so I don't have to insulate them... and I didn't even need music wire to get it through.
