Scale sailplane kit?

Hey guys I recently had knee surgery and am wanting to get back into the hobby after a short break. Being bored out of my mind I am wanting something to build. Ive been searching but haven't gotten very many results. So where else to ask other than rcg. Im looking for a 60 inch ish size scale sailplane maybe with a small jet fan to get the plane in the air. Any suggestions also I would like the kit to be fairly cheap 80 to 150 is my price range. As I have other interests such as FPV.

Tricky! A scale kit in that size would be difficult to find I think, particularly EDF powered. You might want to give consideration to where you might fly the model as EDFs can be noisey and very annoying to some people.

Maybe something like a half size electric powered BoT could be fun?

This one is in the UK, but shipping shouldn't be too expensive :

Maybe 2m and local? 2nd on the right: http://www.isthmusmodels.com/models/...sailplane.html

Be interesting to see what others know of.

Thank you, I know that they are loud. I have flown plenty before, I'm thinking of making a pod for the edf?

What about the guppy mk2? It seems semi scale and that can be easily fixed!
