A Toronto R/C shop has GPMA1022 in stock for quite a while actually. I was looking at it. It is available.

Is the wing span limit for ease of transportation? If so, there are many models out there with plug-in or 2-piece wings that make transport easy.
I fly a Hangar9 RV-8. It has plug-in wings and is a sweet flier. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1120600
Most Extra 300 models will have plug-in wings as well. Edit: just like they guys above said

Another ARF I am looking seriously at is the Seagull Edge 540 .46 size - 59 inch plug-in wing. Lot cheaper than the GP Extra 300 and very attractive colour scheme.

Looking at the on-line manual it is typical of the Vietnamese manuals - minimal instructions requiring some mind reading and background experience by the builder. Promo says electric compatible but I don`t see that in the manual. Doesn`t matter - build a stand-off box out of 1/8 ply.

A chap I know flies one and he says it is one of the best flyers he has owned. Says to reinforce the landing gear plate and firewall with tri stock before you fly it.

Check it out at http://www.horizonhobby.com/products...46-arf-SEA3100

I think my next plane will be a PA ADX, I don't know if your interested in that style though. My problem is I like too many different types of planes and sizes.
