Read my Filip 600 review on the main ezonemag pages (link above). You can equip this with a moderate brushed or brushless motor and it flies like a dream for a 2M model..

I haven't got mine yet, so I can't give you a flight report, but the WindDancer from Polecat Aero looks great if you're into thermalling.

have you looked at Art Hobby

I have a couple of Art Hobby planes and they are excellent value, and good thermal and electric performers too. They're light in weight too and this helps.

the Andromeda 2m and Castor 2.5m are the ones I have.

try www.arthobby.com

you might need to interpret the instructions a little but if it's not your first plane and you don't mind a little assembly work you'll enjoy them.
