You might want to take a look at the full fuse Epp Pitts from Epphobby, but i think your motor is a bit too big for that bi-plane.

While I believe your power combo would work on the Multiplex Gemini it might be a little heavy.
If your looking for 3-D ability the Gemini is not a top choice. It has a lot of coupleing in knife edge flight and does not really compare with more modern designs for slow post stall flight characteristics.

The Gemini is quite aerobatic just not great at 3-D

Try the homebuilt Ultimate, i think that motor combo would work, you could always scale up/down the plans, it goes together quick and is a blast to fly and does 3d easily.
