Default JR XP8103 for gliders

I was looking into getting an xp8103. The confusion lies in the aircraft vs. the sailplane version. Is there that big of a difference?
I fly only sailplanes and don't foresee getting into motorized planes, so I'd like to get the 8103 Sail, but I can get a much better deal on the Aircraft version.
Thanks.

The radios themselves are identical (glider and Aircraft), the glider version comes with two servos, and the aircraft version comes with four. All three versions have the functions for all three modes.

In other words, if you get the Aircraft version, it will have the glider functions and heli functions in it as well.

Only the heli version has some physical differences; some swithces in different places and no ratchet on the throttle, I think.

Thanks George!
I opted for an Eclipse 7 because of the the shift select and Spectra module.
