AFPD model similar to Hobbico SkyFly?

Looking for a model similar to the SkyFly I got for my 16yo brother. I have him practicing the Easy Glider Electric (but that's a bit sluggish) and the PT-40 (but that's a bit more lively). Just thought maybe he'd feel a little more at easy if he had a more similar model. Thanks!
