Sky Surfer or HK Bixler???

Hey guys/gals, I'm relatively new to the rc hobby and I'm beginning to tire of my 3-channel Sky Runner (by Nine Eagles), I'm looking at getting a slightly larger pusher glider and was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on the Banana Hobby Sky Surfer or the Hobbyking Bixler...
In terms of price the Bixler is cheaper, plus I've only heard negative things about Banana Hobby...
I live in the UK but I have a relative who I could order the planes to, this would save me a huge shipping cost and import VAT...
Also if I were to go for the Bixler, would you recommend the RTF version? (I don't have any Tx/Rx's at the moment but I thought I could order the ARF version and then buy the battery, esc, charger and Tx/Rx seperately from Hobbyking)
Here are the two planes:
Sky Surfer: http://www.bananahobby.com/1937.html
Hobbyking Bixler: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=16542

As you can see I'm rambling on a bit so I'll leave it at that...
Thanks for any help
Al
