Default ELECTRIFLY System looking for a plane

I have a Electrifly S-600GD ESC Motor System with Gear Drive it came with a C-30 ESC below is the breakdown as to the way it is listed on the box. S-600 Reverse Rotation 7-8c Ferrite Motor * GD-600 Electric Grear Drive 2.5:1 * High Frequency ESC w/Brake,BEC and low voltage Cutoff *9x8 Propeller for Electrics * GD-600 pioion gear 15T 3:1 Ratio. It came attached to a plane but it did not workout. I need help in finding a plane that I could use this on. Any ideas would be great!
Thanks
Kevin

electricub and ryan sta from greatplanes come to mind. any lightly wingloaded ship in the three pound range will probably work. if you want a little more power for not too much $ try an endoplasma or a magnetic mayhem from kyosho. better brushes and commutator will handle alot more amps giving you a little broader model selection to choose from.

Default thanks

I am trying to find a plane that I could use this setup seen as I already have it. All I want to add is a battery pack. I have tried the ryan, it did not work out. Keep the ideas coming please.
Thanks

I might go with one of the OldTimer series from Spirit of Yesteryear Model Aircraft Company - the classic Lanzo Bomber, Playboy etc are all designed for "05" [=Speed 600] motors. Check out the range at New Creations R/C (#SYO701-SYO704: kits are $58-$68).

Cheers, Phil

10 cells and an 11/7 apc e prop will fly an lt 25 from sig nicely. your going to need some good high capacity batterys though and they arent cheap!
