Looking for a all rounder

Hi folks, this is my first post in this community., so be patient with me.
I'm looking for a fast glider all rounder that means full house control, good for aerobatics, fast whistling passes or even slowing down for thermals. I'm thinking of 2m like e typhoon but that one seems to have bad reputation. Are there any other choices?

I think something from Art Hobby would fit that bill quite well. Wonderful models and quite durable too.

I once had the fvk bravo 2mt wingspan with a MH32 airfiol which is a bit of a all rounder. would give me some high speed passes, would thermal okay and was very stable. Does not have flaps though, just used spoirlerons for landing but in a breeze did not use them. Think it was the bigger brother of the Bandit.

Omega from Nan Model, clearly the best allrounder I have after my F3B planes.

Thanks guys, good suggestions. Has anybody tried new e Hornet from RCRCM?
It looks like the front is a bit bulkier than Typhoon. Seems like it opens up for more choices for the set up. I just read almost entire thread about Typhoon. I'm still tempted 'cos the price seems quite attractive. Any thoughts?

Hi folks,
after a lot of thinking, searching and reading, I finaly bit the bullet and ended up buying Spirit E II 2m moldie from SUSA.
If anybody has any recommendation for good set up, please feel free to make suggestions. For me ,it doesn't have to be a rocket but a nice lively performance would be welcome.
