Default Electric sailplane for aerial photography

Can anyone suggest a good electric sailplane that would be able to carry a camera? I'd like to have an ARF, and I am new to electrics so it would need to be a fairly simple set up. Any suggestions? Thanks!

The Goldberg Electra now comes as an ARF. I have no doubt it'll haul a small camera aloft.

Thanks Matt! I appreciate the info! I've never done an electric, and am totally lost!

The Electra makes a great first electric, even though it is a 6-cell-car-pack-with-a-car-motor design. I'd suggest going with a 7-cell pack, though.

Matt,

What about ion batteries? Would that make a difference?
