F5J models with "wings above the body fuselage" like supra?

Im looking for a good F3j electric / F5J glider which has the wings above the fuselage like on the supra and the Maxa like below picture:




Or any model that comes close in looks of the Supra.
The reason I cannot buy the Supra is that I have very bad experience with vladimirs model and his "Dealers" like the one In french and not delivering orders or replying back. So I look for an alternative model that looks like Supra.

Its pure aesthetic but I totally fell in love with the "wings above fusulage" concept and feel other models missing this.

Any names models delivery times would be appreciated, kind regards!

I don't know how good they are, but I think that both Reichard Mandarin and Reichard Cirrus have the wing a few centimeters above the fuselage. I know there is at least one thread here on RcGroups about the Mandarin, but I haven't read it.

As an alternative you could think of the possibility to buy a fuselage set from CLM Pro and put your favourite wings upon it.

CN-Models Optimus. I think there's a dealer in the UK but I purchased my model from Flightcomp.com. The pod is more of a Maxa but the elevator isn't Drela like and hinges inside the vertical.

Jorrie ... is the problem Vladimir, his plane or the dealers? I have had nothing but good fortune with Neil at Hyperflight.

As for delivery times, if the plane is not in stock and must be ordered/made then one can expect a 6 week to 12 week wait for a composite layup glider. This is pretty much true for most of the manufacturers.
