Recommendations for an EPP electric thermal glider


Hi

I enjoy flying my Great Planes Spectra 2m glider, but sometimes the conditions are not great for getting this plane safely back to earth. I'd therefore like a foam plane that is reasonably good at thermalling.

Is there such a plane? I know this would be a compromise, so I guess I'm after the best possible glider I can get in a foamie.

So far my thoughts are:
Easy Star
Terry
Tipsy

Anything else?

Many thanks

Peter

Well, technically of the planes you mentioned,

The terry and tipsy are EPS (Regular styrofoam) and the Easy Star is Elapor (I think that's right) Which is like a cross between EPP and EPS..... If you want EPP, there's always a Unicorn....

The Unicorn wing is EPP and supposedly a good glider/thermal ship.

That has to be a HighRisE from Upslope Sailplanes - fantastic product and customer support from Ed Berg.
