The Phoenix K8B 3500 might fill your requirements. Comes with an optional motor fitting and is available from Tower Hobbies - curently on backorder. Seems quite popular with those that have flown it.

I recommend you consider the new 3.32m Hall Cherokee II from World Models (Airborne in Livermore CA distributes to the US). It is light and nimble, and plenty hearty enough for a strong hi-start. They thermal really well, too, and the price is right, imo.

BTW, the 3.4m Minimoa they offer is also a popular design and would hi-start well, but the Cherokee is a nicer model.
