Which glider?

Hi,
I have an Astro brushless 805pg motor combination and am looking for a glider to put it in. I intend using a 3s lipo and have been advised to try a 11 x 6 folding prop. the motor (1999 version) is brushless with a 4.4:1 gearbox and integral speedcontroller. It was marketed as a 250 watt max motor.
Quite fancy a FVK silent dream 2.2 meter glider.
Intersted in the odd competition but mainly sports flying.
Options...Flipit 600/400 type?

You are on the right track . Had mine in a
S.Dream for years untill the inevitable 'event'
this summer. Bigger prop though, depending
on the output of the LiPo pack. Would think
Flipit 600.

Hope this helps.
