Default what are some good foamie kits for a Esskay 400XT Outrunner Brushless Motor?

I bought this motor (Esskay 400XT Outrunner Brushless Motor) for use with the Hobby Lobby Yak-55, but was curious what other planes I could put it in?
(I actually bought 2 motors, as was a good price, I thought)

Specs:
For lightweight 3D models to 9-1/2 oz. and other airplanes to 16 oz. Use 9x3.8 to 11x3.8 prop and 2-3 LiPo cells and an 8 amp controller. Good to 10 amps but draws only 3 amps in hovering a model of 8-1/2 oz.

Check out Wattflyer - they have a couple of great threads with LOTS of kits for the 400XT. They also have a thread for prop selection.

Thanks.....it appears that this is a good setup for anything 8oz rang or so, so I should be good, after I go threw my 3 Yaks..

These look nice. Question. How come every foamy kit I see is around 40$? I got my Yak-55's from Hobby Lobby for under 17$ each (so I bought 3)

Are these that much a better plane to warrant 3x the cost? (Well 2.2x maybe )

They are 6 mil real depron foam, very strong and steardy. Very solid and durable. What gets expensive is when you keep buying differnet planes trying to find the perfect plane. Belive me buy a CR1 and you won't want anything else. 400 out runner and 1340 3s lipo 20 amp esc. I have many other planes which are nice such as eflight ultimate, efight byp-yak, typhoon, ultra stick, parkzone P-51, slow stick, 2dogrc challanger, charger CR1, CR2, IDC and the charger is the best overall its a do all foamy. It can fly fast, slow excellent 3d and durable. I also suggest adding the landing gear. - Jim

Thanks for the suggestion....I'll put it on my "to order" list. It was just hard to pass up 14.90$ per plane, however
