Default Sailplane GPS and return to home?

Looking at building a large scale sailplane in the 6m class.
I have used an EagleTree Vector before with an FPV fixed wing setup, and if you lose radio contact it will turn the aircraft back home, and bring it fully back home to a loiter position circling the takeoff point if radio contact never returns.
I want to have the same insurance for this machine. Does someone make such a controller? or should I simply go with another Vector. The Vector has a ton of other stuff I don't need so was thinking there was a simpler solution(?)
Thanks in advance.
