Help!
Help me select an airplane

I am looking for a 60 90 size tricycle gray sport aerobatic. ARF, Kit or just about anything. Trike gear only! What are some good choices?

I have one of the smaller Escapades and it is nice but it’s a bit on the heavy side.

The Meridian looks interesting – I have never seen anyone fly one of those. Have you seen any EP build logs?

I wonder if something like a Dirty Birdy or Phoenix 7 would have enough space for batteries? Has anyone seen an EP conversion of these?

I haven't, and I've looked into it myself and I'm not really sure how you would do one unfortunately.

If you are okay with a kit, you might check out some of the bigger Bridi Chaos's. http://www.bridiairplanes.com/hangar/index.htm

I have the Tower Kaos 40 ARF converted to electric, it's fantastic and meets all your requirements except for size.
