Default Need some ideas please

I'm ready to try electric flight after flying gas and glow. Here's what I got:

BP A4120-7 Brushless Outrunner Motor
610 Kv
55A/60S Max Current
E-flite 60-Amp Pro SB Brushless ESC
Turnigy 3.3 3300mah LiPo
4 cell 14.8v

Have regular, mini, and micro servos.
Please help me find a sport/aerobatic plane I can use this with. ARF or Kit is okay with me. Thanks in advance!

Look at something like:

WM T34 Mentor
WM Skyraider Mach 2
WM Supersport

The Skyraider Mach 2 is cheap and is fun for sport flying with a 4S set up but careful with the CG, might be slightly tail heavy unless you push the packs all the way to the firewall.

a guy once told me;
 the size of the battery in miiliamps is your fuel tank and the size of the pack 2s or 3s or 4s etc is the size of your engine'
Just a way of trying to work thing out .

Now, if you want a killa sport plane that you can also use to help you get into 3D, consider the extreme Flight Extra EXP. We have one set up strictly for sport and let the new guys fly it, and they have all loved it. It's only slightly more difficult than something like a T28 or Park Zone Corsair, but it is so much more capable.

Unfortunately, not much of your gear is going to work, but since you have been flying nitro for so long you aren't going to be satisfied with just any old average plane. Spend a little more now so you won't have to upgrade later.

If you are interested in sport flying this plane, check out [link=http://docaustinextreme.blogspot.com/2011/05/extreme-flight-extra-expsport-pilots.html]EXTREME FLIGHT Extra EXP__Sport Pilots Only [/link]
