I started with a Gentle Lady and presently flying a Kestrel 2M. Thinking about a Segitta next. What would you build for a third bird?

Are you leaning toward staying in the 2 meter range or going bigger now? How about preferred launch method for the new one? Hi-start, electric, power?

Thinking about slightly larger planes, but keeping the cost down to $250 or so. Launching will be mostly hi-start. The Sagitta 900 is 100" WS. It penetrated the stronger winds yesterday and seems to do well at calmer breezes. Just looking for other options, as I am sure there are many good ones out there.

If you are looking for something in the 100" range with 3 functions (rudder, elevator and spoiler), check out the RES-MAXX:

It was a construction recently in Model Aviation. The wood and spar bits won't cost you over $50 and if you have a buddy who can cut foam for you, it looks like a nice plane.

I'm building one right now.

If you are looking for something in the ARF range, check out

http://www.nesail.com

I think there are several kits and built models there.
