Default need help spending my money

---the planes i have now---;
-stryker f-27(best 169 i have spent to date)
-h-9 p-51 mustang .60 e-converted
-laser 3d electric(after 15 minutes+ of flight, my mind is drained before it is)
---i have converted my .40 trainer to electric and i am completely bored with it and want to switch the stuff over to a new plane. i would like to have something a little different than the others i have mentioned but i cannot decide what, so how about a little friendly advice. NOTHING is out of the question. i have been staring at these pizza hut boxes pretty hard, lol. here is the set up;

---AXI 28/20/10 outrunner
---jeti 40 amp
---tp 3s2p 4200mah 11.1v li-po
---on a 11-7 prop, with soft timing, it puts out 400 watts.

thanks for any suggestions

You don't like asking easy questions do you?

How about a biplane? Hobby People makes a decent-looking .30-size Waco that would be perfect for that setup.

Matt, I went looking for that Waco a while back, and it appears to have been discontinued, unfortunately. I was set on a bipe for my Saito FA-30, so I wound up getting a Pacific Aeromodel .30 size Tiger Moth. I haven't assembled it yet, but the parts are of excellent quality, and there was a favorable review of an e-converted example in the latest FlyRC magazine. Might be another option for you, clay pigeon.

thanks Matts, i did a quick search also on the waco and could not find one either. I thought i might have been just over looking it though. I will take a look at the tiger moth.
