Balsa Electric/Sailplane kit recommendations, anyone?

Hi folks--

I'm a total newbie here, but looking for a quality balsa kit for an electric sailplane to build while I learn to fly on something ARF/RTF-like. I've tried a couple searches of the threads here, but you guys have compiled such a huge forum that the results have been mind-boggling.

I'm looking for something in the one- to two-meter wingspan neighborhood, that might be good for thermal-cruising or just having fun drifting down off of powered ascents. It'll likely be flown in middle Ohio (father-in-law's place near Cleveland) rather than near my home in NC., so slope soaring won't be a realistic use for it.

Thanks in advance for any help you folks can provide.

Mike
