Default 20-25 sized sport airplanes

I am looking for ARF pattern/sport (non-warbirds) type airplanes from 20-25 sized that I can put a .25-.32 glow engine on. Do anyone have any websites off hand that has a nice selection of ARFs ranging in these sizes? I've been searching the web and it seems I may find a couple every once in a while (like the Sig Kobra is nice), but it seems they are becoming rare to find. I have nothing against 40 size and up airplanes, it's just I have several already. I've had a couple OS .25 engines and it appears the only planes I am able to find for them are pylon racers or electric planes that I convert to nitro. I really wish they made something like the super sportser or revolver in a 25 size (I know they use to make the super sportster in a 20 size kit, but not anymore). But if anyone have any suggestions of places I might search, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.

Well, for a .25 ARF Pattern try: http://www.airborne-models.com/html/...p?ProductID=54

If that doesn't work look through their other offerings..........

Thanks @ all the replies, I have more places to search now. It does seem some of the .25 planes are larger than they use to be. I actually have the Phoenix Models Sonic 25, a .25 engine is what it recommends and it flies it great. But although it may be lighter, it's still pretty close to the size of a .40 size airplane. Which I think it should be classified as a 32 or 36. I did check out that Nitro Skydancer, which is nice looking pattern flyer. I'll be sure to check out the other sites as well. Thanks again.

A buddy of mine and I did a conversion of GP's sportster EP brushed motor version. It was as easy as putting toghter any arf.
We bolted an OS 25 fx on tyhe rails threw in a fuel tank and a 9 gram throttle servo and boy what a plane.
It is a screamer, yet a gentle flyer. this plane loves to fly.
You can either do a scale take off or an 8 ft one.
She really fly's good in the wind too.
