Default Hobby Lobby Pigi-3D

Saw a PIGI-3D at a club today and it's exactly what I want for my next plane but alas it is not made any more.

Any one have a suggestion for the current equivelent?

EPP Construction
36" span
low-wing
4-channel

Doesn't have to come with electronics/motor but if it did that might still be okay.

I saw this but it's from the UIK and I'm in the USA :-(

Doesn't anyone sell a 36-40" EPP plane with a airfoil wing and a thicker fuselage for a 150-175W power system in the USA???

It seems like everything is fally in the 28" size.  Maybe the markets to keep it under the park-flyer limit???

I don't know if you're still in the market but have you looked at ParkZone's Typhoon 2 3D?  It's got a 39" wingspan and is pretty capable and fun to fly.  I like mine.

I ended up building a Quickstick (leadfeather design, motorhead kit).  Fun plane.
