Default Delta w/canard

Are there any .40 sized delta planes that have a canard up front? I'm looking for a speedy plane, but everyone at my field has the conventional "Diamond Dust" design. I am looking for something a bit different. This would be my first speed project, so if you all could fill me in on the best speed planes, I'd appreciate it.

FYI, I'd probably be putting a TT .46 pro in it.

i've seen 1 at my field.
.40 size ,tractor, delta and canard.
you can't balance a canard like a standard.
you might try RCM for plans.

i have the tristar and plans. it's only a .15 thou.

the SIG Tristar was now speed plane, tho it resembled a Long EZ.
Wing was partially sheeted foam and no spar just glass cloth and epoxie joining the two halves.

the Whiplash, DD and Laser Arrow have no nose length to add canards to.
