Seeking Quality Foam J3 Larger Than 1400mm?

I'm interested in getting a quality electric scale ARF/BNF J3 larger than 1400mm/55", does anyone here know of a nice one?

Thank you.

I'm beginning to hear ARF/BNF'ers talking about 1400 and 1700mm warbirds more and more. Some online ARF suppliers don't bother to speak in inches. You'd get better advice in a Park Flyer forum.

Does it have to be foam? A friend of mine has the Hangar 9 80" Cub and he loves it. He electrified it and it flies great. It's a very nice looking model. I'm not an ARF guy, so don't know too much about it. It isn't a bind and fly, so you need to do some work.

My buddy has a website with some good photos of the model in flight. Go to the Team Tracon website , click on "Aircraft Gallery", and then the Hangar 9 Cub section. (For some reason I can't link to it directly).
