Holy cow, where does one start with sail planes?

I've flown for years, planes and helis and now I'm considering a powered glider. I really don't want to sink a lot of money into something I just want to play with. RC Groups sailplane forum has anything from a few that seem to have pretty decent followings:

Radian Pro
RocHobby V-Tail Glider 5ch 2200mm (87") Wingspan - PNP

I'd be using my Graupner radio equipment.

Did this get covered in a past show?

Since I live in a mountain area, I expect there will be some thermals. Any insight would be helpful.

Hmmm

I've read some good things about the RocHobby V tail, but haven't seen one myself.
Radian Pro? Ask Bobby, he's got one for sale. :lol:
The other one I'd choose is the Solius from Multiplex:
