The upgrade to the TSII isn't so hard and doesn't have to be too expensive. This thread has some good comments on various folks ideas on upgrades. I described my upgrade process on my hobby web site here. You can get the extra wire to the nacelles without major surgery. You can get some nice motors and ESCs from Hobby Central for a good price.

I know you mentioned that you were thinking about a mid or low wing, but you also said you were looking for a big foam second plane. I enjoy flying my Magister. It is being replaced with the Mentor which is the same size but a tail dragger. It's a big foamy and strong. I nosed mine in from about 200 ft when the ESC blew up and was shocked at how little damage there was. A balsa plane would have been kindling. Here is a link to my Magister write-up. The Magister with the CAP paint job is post crash. With a nice brushless motor, you'll be able to do the basic aerobatics you mentioned in your post. It is no Acromaster but is a great large second plane.
