Default wanna be kit builder needs help!!!

ok, I can fly a radian with confidence. What I cant do is complete a kit without making a mistake that turns the kit into kindling. Would someone please recommend a sailplane kit that is designed to teach someone how to successfully build a kit. Im considering an OlyII or the OlyIIS from Sky Bench Aero Tech.

The Chrsalis gets great reviews as a kit and as a glider.

About 60% completed when you get it. Fuse is done and spar is prebuilt
the Oculus - 3 meters.  This one is winning contests

Thanks for the replies guys. Looks like Im going with the Oly II. Think I will see if I can get the wing kit for the S version and have that one on hand as well. Hopefully it will fit on the standard kit fuse. Again, thank you to all for the help.
