Advice for EP high performance 2M full house

I've been flying 1.5 meter full house DLG's competitively for several years. For a couple of reasons it seems I won't be doing this anytime soon and possibly never again. However I really miss the thrill of chasing down thermals and getting a free ride up. I'm really strapped for time and money being back in college at this time, but I'd still like to get my thermal fix. I'm thinking a full house EP 2M plane might be the perfect compromise between price, performance, and portability.

I'm not looking for a rocketship to 2000' or a super expensive moldy. I'm more interested in something really light that I can get to 300' in a few seconds, cut the motor, and go hunt thermals like I did with my DLG's. I also want something that has the ability for camber, flaps, reflex, and maybe crow for fun.

If I had time I'd just create a new fuse for some of my bagged wings, but I'm just too busy with college work. I've also been out of the loop for a while. Hopefully somebody has some suggestions that would fit this bill? Thanks in advance!

I'm interested in these two for multiple purposes just like you,
.....cruising around and thermal hunting....but there seems to
be not a lot of people that have them for reviews....
I've seen one dated back in 2007, but updated versions already
came out....


Variant 3

Arthobby Sky (T, V or poly)

Very easy to add flaps (I did this on an Arthobby JK Thermic years ago, and it was very simple)

These are some awesome planes, unfortunately the ones that have what I want (fully controllable airfoil) are way out of my price range. I guess I'll have to build my own.

Why not just put a tiny motor and lipo into one of your dlg's?

Will only add 2 oz max.

Heya' Jim, nice to read you again last year Parkzone brought out an incredible new glided for the masses called the Radian. It is a 2 meter foamie that floats like a butterfly, but is only a R/E/T ship. In the near future, the Radian PRO will be unleashed upon the world. That one will feature dual ailerons and flaps at a slight weight penalty compared the gravity defying original Radian.

Looks like I may need a third 2m glider

Another vote for a 2M Pulsar. I am just finishing one with ailerons, flaps...see Pulsar thread.
