I'm looking for something in the 200+ range, or do I need to go turbine?

You will have to look at the electric pylon racers or dynamic soaring machines. Very clean, hollow molded aircraft. Look at spending a lot of money. Esprit models, nesail.com They both have some stuff. 200 is a tough number to get. 180 a little easier. One of my favorites is the Sunracer. Great little airplane. Only good for 180-190 though.

i googled bhutan (you had me there) and it appears slope soaring might get you 200 mph or even 300![X(] quite the mountainous country.
