Experience with Ripmax Evolution Sport?

Sorry about cross posting, but I got no response at all in the Electric sailplanes forum

Hi

I just thrashed my second hand Surprise 6 (flown on 10 cells and a home built LRK) and want to replace it with something more modestly priced. The Ripmax Evolution Sport looks like a good alternative, but has anyone actually owned one and flown it? It would cost me around $150 dollars delivered to my doorstep, shipping from Germany to Sweden. Is that cheap or will I be disappointed?

Evolution Sport

Sorry for the Surprise . If the sport is like the competition you sure will enjoy this palne . Quiet&Electric Flight review this models few month ago . Good luck.

The major difference between the Sport and the Competition is that the Sport has a foam-veneer wing instead of a molded. Fuse is supposed to be the same.
