Default good plane for 22m-1000 rimfire?

Rummaging through the parts bin I noticed I have enough for a new plane... very exciting. Problem is, as of now, I haven't any idea what to build...

SO, looking for a couple suggestions for the following gear:
Rimfire 22m-1000 brushless
bl 8 esc from great planes...
hs 55 servos
and a 640 11.1 volt battery.... can use any battery but that was is just sitting there waiting to blow up so may as well try to use it....

not really interested in flat foamies if that's possible...

Well, that particular motor was designed for the Great Planes Flatouts.
No reason, though, it wouldn't work well with most of the GWS planes.

The motor/ESC can handle 88 watts based on 11 V and 8 amps.

Maybe an e-glider

If you want an aerobatic plane, then you want something 18 ounces or less.

A combo plane that can have slow fly and sport wings

A semiscale cub would e nice. Here is one about 18 ounces

Or maybe a biplane

Or perhaps this foamy sport plane

How we doing?

Thanks for pointing me towards mountainmodels... not at all familiar with their products. I'm fond of the biplane idea as I've not ventured into a sport biplane as of yet

I have three of their planes. Love 'em! Kits go together beautifully and the planes fly great!

Customer service is excellent too!
