When I see what is "below", say 1m span, prices are sort of similar so why not invest a bit more and get a better model.

Unfortunately at both of the stores I have near the other 2 options will be this ones:

-Fireworks Mini-Q:

and

-Fling DL
http://www.greatplanes.com/airplanes/gpma1070.html

I guess then I should get the Fling?

Thanks again for any light on the matter.
Caution

The DLG fling is the worse choice you could make. Seriously, Its a wreck. Been know to fold on the first launch


I wouldnt bother with the smaller DLG `s either , stick with 1.5m because the performance is much better.


There are a good number of very nice gliders [foam core bagged wings] available in the 3-400 dollar range.
Topsky super is around 360 for a ARF
Predator two is another

Its also not a bad idea to watch the classifieds in this website for a used,ready to fly glider but be prepared to act fast, they sell very fast.

If you state your location guys might even offer to sell you one because a lot of guys dont like to ship but often have a few gliders in their hangar.

Im sure through the day you will get more suggestions as well.

To be honest, the question of which glider is best for a newbie has been worn out and many dont bother to retype so often.

Hit the search button , keywords; which DLG for newbie . any variation of that topic will net a few dozen threads
