Anything better than the Radian Pro?

...in the same category: foam prop-driven electric sailplane.

Hoping to start a discussion here - as I'm still somewhat new to the hobby I've owned thus far the PZ T-28D & the Radian Pro.

Overall, I've decided the foam prop-driven sailplane (the RPro in this case) is my 'cup-o-tea' for several reasons:

- long flight times (>30min on single charge)
- less likely to crash than an Extra300
- parts availability when it does
- foam is repairable
- prop when thermals are scarce

So here is the question: is there anything out ...which is of equal or better build quality, foam, prop-driven, with excellent flight characteristics (ie, thermalling and moderate aerobatics) and easier to assemble (think <5min to fish servo leads into fuse) ...than the Radian Pro?

Afterall, the Radian and RPro have the highest post counts on this forum.

Thanks for any thoughts!
