Help!
what glider please!!

Hey guys so, I want a glider.( this is a repost as i found the sailplanes section)

I have about $160 usd to spend, and i want the most for my money.
I would like some highs speeds but i want to be able to stay in the air for a while, riding thermals etc. I am a new glider pilot, but i have plenty of other plane experience, i will order off of any website, (keep shipping+ battery in mind). I do not mind assembly, but i don't want it from scratch, if it requires me to put any coating on or any balsa wood assembly, im out! I like sleek and original designs but as long as it isnt too bulky it is okay, i also prefer a larger wing span over a smaller! I would love any suggestions.

I already have a reciever and a dx5, plenty of servo cables, an 1820kv and a 3400kv motor, I also have a 70a and a 40a esc. As long as the total price is around 160 i am down with it.

Here is what i have seen so far:

I love my EasyGliderPro from Multiplex. I would suggest taking a peek at that.

Umm, you jumped to a conclusion before you had the input you requested.... This may be a lost cause, but have a read in this thread...
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...&highlight=alp

I have had two copies of the Alps - but flew fine a Boom and Zoom warmliners, but suffered from weak tail sections in the fuse. It will thermal, but so will a Cub, in the right conditions. The ALPS will NOT thermal in moderate or weak lift. It is a fast cruiser, much like the Zephyr 70 from Hobby King.

I listened to him and read all the forums on the plane, finally ended with the radian pro, i mowed a few lawns and got enough. I did listen to jim And understood the alps it needed some work that i was up for. I dont understand how i blew it.
