balsa framed aerobatic biplanes available?

Hey now,
I guess the title says most of it. I fly just about everything electric but I've been going through a biplane phase lately. Along with a Frankenstein or two and a couple of scratchers I've got a HH Rhapsody, Pitts 12e, GP Reactor and an old Concept models Fleet biplane. Except for the Fleet they're all nifty tumble bug kind of stunt planes and I'd like to find more. In this case foam won't do. I want wood or maybe composite (oooh a glass and carbon *racing* bipe!). Is there anything out there other than Ultimate bipes? I don't like the way they look.
Kits, ARFs, even plans sets if the model is cool enough (Solution, lil' Stinker, skybolt...).

Hey now,
Wow! What a nifty site. Thank you very much. Although I think it may become a thread killer. Never the less what a great reference site. I've got it in my bookmarks fer sure.

Waco YMF-5 kits in 2 sizes here:

although they are not really "tumblebug" aerobatic.

These are supposed to be good:

Don't know anything about this one but one of my FBs has had other Airfoilz kits and liked them.

If you don't mind building a kit, look at the Mountain Models "EVA" bipe. Here's a link:

Here is a 60" Pitts M12/Python/Beast short kit. I'm quite happy with mine! Dennis designed it based of the zero gravity pitts but enlarged it, and made a few short kits available, probably worth asking if he is willing to get another kit cut.
