Lots of good suggestions here. Lots to ponder and research. The Heston Phoenix is very interesting! A high wing monoplane with retracts from the 30's? How many of those are out there? The build thread you linked to is for a 36" span but I'd like to build it a bit bigger to carry a 3s 5000 lipo. Suggested sizes?

My heart keeps coming back to the Staggerwing also. Charlie, did you say you enlarged some plans? Which ones did you enlarge? 54" span sounds about right. Don't know which plan would be the best to modify for a lightweight e-flyer.
BTW, still interested in the new plans of Ivans chipmunk, no retracts, but oleos would be cool. Is that plan available yet?
