What are some good .25 sized arf planes?

I totaled a .25 equivalent electric, electrifly rimfire motor, and all the parts are still good. What are some good planes that I could drop the parts in. Just lay down a list of some good ones because I cannot find jack.
The motor is: Electrifly Rimfire .25
GPMG4675
1000kv
up to 3 cells(i'm running it at that)
650 continuous watts, 740 burst
11x8.5 or 12x6




Foamy plans work too.

E-Flite Bonanza is .15-sized electric. That size motor is a totally insane upgrade for the Parkzone warbird foamies, too. If you aren't afraid to build, the 42" balsa planes that Mark Rittinger has published are great on that kind of motor. My son has one in his Rittinger P-51 (an easy build) and it's a hoot to fly! www.montanadesign.com/planes/videos/P-51 for pix and video.

Well, depends on how powerful a "15 sized" power system is. I have a motor that's labeled as "15 sized", yet it puts out 600 watts and could fly a .40 sized trainer on 3s no problem.

Others have "15 sized" power systems that will just be able to fly a .15 glow sized airframe.

Got some specs we can use?

Gee with that you could go with a DW Foamies BAF 55"

Or any 40 sized trainer, or a ~30-35oz 3D plane. Heck, you could even go with a Pulse XT 25E.
