First electric plane for an experienced glow flier?

I've been lurking around E Zone for a while now, and have decided that I want to be an electric flier. Can someone recommend a sensible choice for my first electric plane? My circumstances are that I:

- am a competent flier of a <A HREF="http://www.sigmfg.com/cgi-bin/dpsmart.exe/ProductsIL.html?L+Sig+odmm2830+_Ddp_5fSearch1_02A_ 2dPlaneRCFStar40_01">SIG Four Star 40</A>, with 2 years RC flight experience
- fly outdoor
- have no serious electric fliers at my club
- prefer sport aerobatic models
- am attracted to planes like the Great Planes Electro Streak, or something in the Speed 400 range
- prefer to build planes from kit
- am afraid of selecting a model that is too fast or twitchy for me to fly.

I'd appreciate any advice you can offer.

I've done my best to search through the discussion archives, but I couldn't find any information that exactly matches my question.

Thanks!

PS. Thanks to everyone who has made E Zone such a great reference and such an interesting place.
