Newbie kit suggestion.

I am not new to electric RC planes but am to sailplanes. Can someone recommend a good kit or ARF for a first time sailplane? I was looking for something with about a 60" wingspan and I'm not affraid to build (in fact, I prefer it). The Skimmer and Ascent look promising. Is there anything else? Thanks!

Take a look at Skybench Aerotech's web site. They have a couple of sailplane kits that fit your requirements quite nicely. Speed 400 geared or small BL motors will handle the power needs.
