Are you saying the rc craft is armed or just that it can be? What is the significance of the twin boom sailplane behind it?

I have a new 2m sailplane (powered). To balance properly a considerable amount of weight...

Many folks use the Bixler that HobbyKing sells. It makes a good AP platform as the plane is a pusher design so no prop in the video to worry with. It's also well within your price limit.
