Default HELP I'm Ready for my 1st composite electric sailplane...Opinions

After starting 10 years ago with a Lazy Bee/hacker then a Sig Kadet/AXI 2820-10 I feel ready for a beautiful composite sailplane, not a super high performance one that is too fast and hard to handle but something along the lines of the StevensAero Helium but in composites so it is less fragile and a faster assembly... notice I didnt say build it
Its a tough choice with so many ships out there, I'm not on a tight budget since I just gave up flying general aviation so I could spend the price of a new magneto !
NES has lots of machines but they mostly seem too advanced.
BTW I have a hacker A30-16M on the shelf. 400 peak watts...
Thanks greatly guys.

After another day of research I ordered a Twister from Esprit ! Looks to be a beautiful ship.
A choice of two motors was offered I havent yet decided.
A MVVS 4.6/1120
or a Neu 1110/1y
Any advice on those? My fave are hackers, which of the hackers is comparable.
Thanks
