What does it mean to be Radian like?

RTF? - Not likely over 2.5M

Foam? Not likely over 2.5M

R/E - Lots of ARFS and kits available

Anything over 2.5M in foam is not really available. If you want to go larger than that you will have to make it yourself.

However, beyond 2.5M it is best to switch to build up wood, Foam core bagged wings covered with glass, carbon, kevlar. And then there are the molded wings.

An electric AVA is "Radian Like" in that it is RE, big bent wings, 127" span and over $800 for the ARF.
