Sorry, I didn't see this before.

Look at this website:  https://aerofred.com

You have to sign up but they have a lot of free plans for elliptical designs many of which could be adapted or modifed into a nice, elliptical profile model.

Don't let me stop you if it's what you really want, but "profile" and "training" means "should be easy to build" to me, and "elliptical wing" means "hard to build" to me...

You could always find an elliptical-winged full-fuselage model with the right wing design and build that wing, with the bellcrank position modified just enough to be suitable for a profile.

The problem with electric is that once you get the smoke generator and sound system installed, the plane is too heavy.

Take a look at the current home page at flyinglines.org. There's a great planform view of Pat Johnston's Epiphany, an elliptical
 wing and stab profile design. Pat has several elliptical designs in his plans list.
