Good Electric Glider wanted

Where I live the thermal are ok but not the best. I can take a zagi 400x with an 020 and a 8 cell 500a pack w/5 minute flights and speck it out. If I thermal I will get 15 - 22 minutes.

That said I want a real sailplane in the 2M or larger, electric, flaps and ARF. My budjet is about $500-$650 for plane and motor. I do not need arobatics or speed, just a realyyyyy good thermal ship.

What do you sugest?

It may be less plane than you are thinking of but I have an unfinished Graupner Cumulus 2000 for sale. The 2000 doesn't have flaps but it does have spoilerons.

HS85BB servos are installed for the ailerons. The plane would come with those. The motor and V-tail pushrods still need to be installed in the fuselage, along with your own radio gear. The power system is a Graupner SpeedGear 480, Graupner 11x8 prop, and Jeti 250 ESC. All equipment is new and unused.

I'm into this project for over $300 but will sell it for $250 plus shipping. I need to finance a replacement for a DLG I recently lost.
