The best beginning glider in the world IMHO is the Sig Gentle Lady.
Kit:
http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXDJC3&P=7

They also offer that as an ARF although it says temporarily unavailable - odd...

They fly wonderfully - I was self taught 28+ years ago with one!

You can also power it if you like - but NOTHING flies like the Gentle Lady.......

The Easy Glider is available Receiver Ready for $130. Great plane and great value.

90% built with servos installed. Add receiver and transmitter.

Good idea. Also the Easy Glider is made of the same <nearly> indestructable foam as the Easy Star.

He never said he wanted a powered sailplane. He never said he didn't.

Then a double :o:o.


Since the OP has yet to return, I'm guessing he found what he was after.
