Looking for a high performance glider

Something thats not quite a hotliner but has the power of a park480. Something that will thermal whilst wizzing by deadstick. I want to be able to do snappy aieloron rolls tool (this is a must). Vertical flight is a must, of corse
Is there such a ship as a fourth plane that won't break the bank?
Straight wing too!!

This is the only thing i can come up with for the most part.

What's the price range for a RX ready plane? i.e. airframe/motor/esc/servos/battery/etc.....

I don't think the Samuri will give you what you are looking for......just going by 2 I have seen fly anyway. If you doubled the price of the Samuri, or ad $150-200 to that price, you can get something 5 times better, that would likely make your happier longer.

Hummm...I've been looking at this one for ages as a general purpose plane.

Another option along a similar line to the mini-ellipse is the mini-corado.

If you are on a bit smaller budget maybe also check out skipmillers speedo, star, and mini-risk?

If you want larger and heavier I've had good luck with the falcon from Icare.
http://www.icare-rc.com/falcon-e.htm
It is bigger and heavier than the others but I've found it a great 2m general purpose plane. Will come down with a fair bit of speed but will also thermal surprising well for its weight.

Cheers Mike

If you re-read the original post you will note that I wanted something not quite as fast as a hot liner. LOL
