northern california - 1.5m to 2m electric sailplane/floater - radian, easy star, etc.
I'm looking for a lightly used (not abused) slow/floater/thermal ship to play with on lunch break at work. A radian (pro or not), easy star, or equivalent type plane would be perfect. I don't care if it's had light, good repairs but I don't want an epoxy lead sled.
an airframe+motor+esc+servos would be perfect, but will consider any configuration.
I'm in the roseville area, regularly commute between roseville and fairfield along I80 and to elk grove area as well.

Pick up a DLG. You can throw them up in any park or field and have a blast. Since you drive between Roseville and Fairfield, the Pena Adobe park just past Vacaville is a great place to slope soar! And the SVSS thermal club is off of Mace Blvd in Davis.

the easy glider is somewhat interesting, but the reviews aren't all that kind to it especially compared to a radian. (It looks like the radian on craigslist is sold/gone).
DLG isn't much my style and I don't have the back for it anyways. Definitely need something motorized but which is still light enough to be slow.
thanks for the suggestions!! still looking

Gabby for sale
I have a 2m Gabby-E that is missing the Carbon wing spar joiner to and if I can't find a replacement spar I will be forced to sell it to someone who wants a fully ready (servos, motor, ESC, and rx) just add battery and the spar. It has a brushless geared setup and CF prop. Its actually blue and white and the spar went missing when I had my radio box stolen. I was looking for a replacement spar but I had bought this from Nesail.com back in 2009 and they won't respond to me about locating a replacement wing joiner and I don't have the means to just make one.
Here are the specs on it.
Wingspan 78.74 in.
Wingarea 511 in²
Weight 26-32 oz.
Wingloading 8 - 9 oz/ft²
Airfoil Drela AG41/AG42/AG43
Motor Small Geared Brushless Motor
Battery 3-4 cell 1200-2100 mah Li-Poly

I think NSP is actually out of business; not surprised that they won't get back to you about the spar. I still have a 2m Kestrel from NSP - great plane, won a few contests with it; it's been hibernating in my garage for at least a decade awaiting a new club membership to get on a winch and go flying.
Unfortunately, I don't have the resources to find/replace/fabricate that spar; and the Gabby is probably a lot more plane than I really need for a lunchtime diversion that I can leave at work.

I have a Radian
I have a Radian that I purchased a week ago. I flew it last weekend. Great plane that wants to go! I have limited space to fly around here and would consider selling. How muCh are you looking to invest in a Radian? I paid $250 for her.
