As far as I know there is no RTF system currently available. As Pascal already mentions, the best approach is to build something yourself. It is not as hard as you might think. You can buy a lot of the parts as a kit that you can put together. One example is the video series that Pascal points out. Alternatively you can now use the Elle0 autopilot together with G0 GPS module and R0 radio telemetry. I am working towards having a more complete tutorial series based on the newer hardware that is available for people like you. I have started with explaining the Elle0 autopilot here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yPNSzWRVHuA
I would personally get airframe parts, motors and motor controllers from a place like HobbyKing. As long as you can have SimonK firmware on your motor controllers, and mount your autopilot using a vibration plate like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/181784669956?lpid=82&chn=ps&ul_noapp=true it works well with Elle0 because it has the “right" hole pattern.
I know this is much more work than buying a box from amazon, I am working on making that process easier for everyone, but it will still take some time to get there. In the mean time building your own system has the advantage that you know what is inside and what makes it tick. If you decide to go down that road let me know maybe we can work together documenting your journey. This will be useful for everyone who comes along after you. :)
