Which glider to upgrade to? From ST Models ASW28?

Hi guys

only been flying for about 3 weeks,I'm a beginner with lots of sim time. Flow when I was younger about 12-13 but only started learning. Now coming back to it at 27.

Had three sessions out with my Stmodels asw28 foamie. First two sessions were very windy but learnt good control in the wind. Last evening when the weather had calmed I had a great flight. 27 mins off one battery with about 4-5 minutes on the motor.

I've been looking around for my next glider. I still want power and ideally a 3m wingspan and it will probably be glass. And something scale looking. Building isn't really my thing so it will need to be built. I'm happy doing electrics, motor etc.

I'll put up some videos of my flights soon.

Anyone got any suggestions?

Cheers

Dave

What's your budget?

There aren't any cheap glass sailplanes.

I'm not aware of any plane that meets your criteria. Consider building, or look at the arthobby planes.
