Sorry, its all I have for the plan, I cut internal parts based on my own estimation. The wing using Clark-Y profile

Mine has skids, so it is a snowball, this kit http://kenscadmodels.com/nutball-15-indoor-flyer.html has wheels, and is called a nut ball, but yours has neither, and with your plane retrieval skills, will probably never need either...

My point is, it is not complete enough to decide which it is!

Micro Chris Pitts 2XL

Here's my newly built micro pitts blown up 200% from the original plans.
WS is 24 inches
weight so far is 48g without electronics.
So i'm estimating it to come up to 120g AUW. Also have full top ailerons and bottom wing half length ailerons. Should be sufficient enough.
Now just waiting on motor and esc in the mail.

Well the micro version flies graceful so this one should be a breeze to fly.

Gray Ghost

Here's ours: I enlarged the P-Nut plan on Outerzone to 19.5 " It weighs 119G w/ 200 mah eFlite battery and the same internals used in the GeeBee..
Ist flight was yesterday.. it's a lot of fun and easy to fly. The motor is midship and a .032" piano wire drives the prop which runs on 2 roller bearings from SDP .. It's different and plenty zippy.. :

Looks like it flies great!! Here's my latest creation:
22.5" span B-25J, made from Paul Bradley No-Cal plans
So far, it has only had short hops, but these have proved that it needs a rudder.
AUW 45g

F6F Hellcat on Truckerboy plans http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1244550

all the stuff is from my old Parkzone UMX Spitfire. The only changes from that setup are a GWS 5043 prop and a 240 mAh 1s Hyperion battery.
I also changed the motor wires: since I needed longer ones I changed them for thicker ones - that gave me an almost 5% thrust increase on thrust stand!

I put all the components as far forward as possible to have the COG around the right place without the battery installed to avoid ballast in the nose, and I put the battery location around the COG too so to be able to try different sizes of batteries without changing the model balance.
The receiver is held in place by a balsa fixture and the motor mount is held by screws. Both features were very useful in the trimming process.
The motor cowl is held in place by two short carbon rod stubs and magnets. The battery cover just by two magnets.
The built-up tail feathers came out heavier than the solid balsa ones..
What can I say more.. the dihedral break on the ailerons control rods is made with two layers of shrink tube.

48 g without battery, 53 AUW ready to fly.

here's a short video:
