      I've got one of each Radian apart from the Night version because I don't see the point in that... A Night Radian Pro on a slope would be great for low viz days though! It really is a tough call to say which is best.  The original Parkzone 2m Radian is pretty much still the benchmark for thermal gliders. It's so good it can be a real problem to get it down into a small field!  Then the UMX Radian. That is a law unto itself, that thing has no right to be so good, Joel on RCGroups says it stays aloft on the farts of field mice, I have no reason to dispute this!!! The RXL I'd rate next. It's a big ol' heavy bird but you would never know it once in the air. It can thermal quite nicely and lands very easily thanks to the airbrakes. Yes the tail could do with being stiffer. Just a strip of tape under the back works wonders. It says to use a 3S 3300mAh battery, not a chance of that, I use an 1800 and load up with telemetry gizmos   The Radian Pro I'd have last. It's not a bad glider but it just can't thermal as well as any of the others. Wing attachment is a real PITA too. I do mean to modify mine so the Multiplex plugs (those green ones!) are stuck in the wing and the fuselage. Normally I leave one side free floating but these should be ok because the wings are bolted on. Swapping the bolts to thumbscrews could really give this a new lease of life...

      I use snap flap as it seems to make the model far more responsive in "cruise",  almost none in "speed" and very little in "thermal" as the wing has a lot of camber in that mode already and I'm not trying to make quick turns.
