help with plane setup

I have been searching for a home for a park 480 setup that I have been using in a home made foamie. I would like to put them in a nice foamie or balsa setup. I would like some help picking out the best choice. I would like something versatile that will fly a sport pattern as well as 3d. The parts I have are a Park 480, Eflite 35a esc,3s 1800 and 22000 mah batteries, 4 hxt 900 servos but can upgrade those if needed.
The plane that has really caught my attention is the electrifly reactor bipe. I really like the looks of it and have seen the gas powered regular reactor fly very well. Is my setup good for this?
Other planes I am interested in are:
Skywing s bach
Multiplex Acromaster
3dhs plane of some sort
PA Addiction
Something I haven't thought about...I tend to love bipes (wouldn't be opposed to a Christen Eagle if one for my setup exists) and anything out of the ordinary.

How about a DW Foamies 48" Yak 54? That's a perfect light weigh setup for it (you will need HS65HB servos though, those HXT's won't stand a chance!).

Hmm I do think that would be a good flyer. However, the plane I have the electronics on right now is a home built 48" Leadfeather plan Yak 55 and I have a hard time purchasing a profile foamy when I can make one that flies well.

This is a lot of plane for the $$. They say a 480 will fly it. Might have to upgrade the servos.
