Default Which Plane?

I have just aquired a DLE 30cc gas engine now I need to find a suitable plane. I am thinking a Seagull Mew Gull or a Great Planes Giant Big Stick. Does anyone see any problem with either of these or have any better suggestions?

It would be great on the GBS power wise, but from what I have read from the people using that combo it needs about 18 oz. of lead in the nose to get the CG right. I'm assembling one right now and plan on using a Zenoah G26 on it.
Can't comment on the Mew Gull. Sorry.

The Gull looks great but I don;t know much about it otherwise. You can't go wrong with a Stik though.

I have a G-38 on a Kangke Monocoupe 90. A really nice combo, a will built plane that should work well with your engine.
