Default HelP me out HERE GUYS! DLG Choices...

Okay So I want to get a relatively inexpensive DLG to throw around the field while my 3D LiPo's charge and just to have something different. So far i was looking at the HobbyKing VERSUS DLG or the SoaringUSA SOLO DLG, Then someone convinced me of the TopSky 2.0 Disser and I'm pretty much sold on that. Anybody have any other options that are around that Price range / Size...
Some things to consider;
-Ailerons are a MUST... Wont buy a DLG that doesnt have them
-I'm a pretty Confident builder, However I'd like an easy build arf preferred but not a deal braker
-I'm not a Doctor, I'ma collegestudent... Keep pricing in mind (<$350 would be nice)
-It has to fly well (Duh), but I'm an experienced pilot so It doesnt have to be a beginner glider

ANY SUGGESTIONS or preferences between the SOLO & VERSUS?!

UPDATEas dragged from my flyinggiants thread)
-I wanted to Use HS35HD (digital) servos all around, but People have been telling me there is a high possibility of surfaces fluttering during hard launches( someone used an example of the Blaster having flutter issues using hs55's. I personally thing the hs55 is a chaep servo that i wouldnt use in a $10 foamy... I dont however have any experience with the 35HD's... So i cannot support an arguement against them yet. Has anyone used these servos to any success?

Also I've been Pretty set on using the 240mAh Smart Lipo(you know the one with the built in charger) any relevant pros and cons with this one?

Yeah? Let the comments start flowing!

I have one and it is great fun for wasting time!

Not expensive, though it is also not competition worthy.

Even after all of its flaws it is still worth the $120 price.

(I did switch the pull-pull to pushrods after it broke on the first flight.) I have many hours soaring mine around the football field, baseball field, soccer field, parking lot at work, wherever I happen to be when I get the urge. (It is small enough to pack along all the time.)

Don't get the Fling DLG. Boom breaks too easily.

Mini Top Sky - $137

Top Sky 1 - $230
http://www.hobbyclub.com/product_inf...roducts_id=984

Top Sky 2 - $315
http://www.hobbyclub.com/product_inf...oducts_id=1197

Top Sky 3 - $365
http://www.hobbyclub.com/product_inf...oducts_id=1283


You will be happy with one of these. Each includes 2 servos, I believe.
