Default Axi 2208/34 what 3d foamie should I get?

Just wondering. I had a nemesis that flew awesome pattern wise. I got it on the Animal now, but I only fly outside and I snapped an aileron counterbalance the other day. I just dont like how the plane is acting and the way it looks. The build turned out a bit sloppy(its only my second foamie) but I gained some experience. I didnt put the control horns close enough to the leading edge of the surfaces, etc.

I want a biplane....I think(I say I THINK because they look more complex and difficult to build). I was about to buy the reflection today but saw that it came with a geared brushed motor which I thought would be a waste. So whats a good plane for this engine? And is the reflection better than the tensor? I use a Jeti pro 8, I have a TP 1320 and a Kokam 650. Whats a good biplane or a good 3d plane, besides the animal? (that would accomdated an axi mount too)

I have the same set up for motor wise and it works awesome with the shockflyers. F3A or Yak I would recommend. Both will 3d and fly pattern.

I Love the Nikitas Rebel....

but it is just about as fragile as the Animal... but I think it flys better than the Animal....
the 2208 is what I run on mine

I think that the www.rcxplanes.com Sierra will be just the ticket for you. The only problem that you're going to have, is getting your hands on one. They're still in the prototype/beta testing stage. I've got one, and it's now my favorite plane. Here's a picture. Maybe if you beg and plead Bud at rcxplanes, he'll send you one.

I'm running a 2208/34, jeti 18P speedy and, 11.1 1050mAh pack and a 10x4.7 prop on a new ultrafly outrage. This is my first foamy and I flew it for the first time today in 10-15kmh winds. Handled the wind easily and has power to boot. It was easy to build even though the instructions suck.
