3D plane for my 2 stroke G90?

Hello all, i am looking for a 3d plane for my Super Tigre G90 (2storke .90) (Italian).

I have a Twist 40 and it is fun, but just does not seem like a true 3D airplane. any recommendations for the G90?? I would like to stay under 300.00 and want it to be an ARF. i have 5 servos, receiver, etc....just need a plane. I was thinking of the Showtime 4D, or the Funtana or katana, but i am really looking for suggestions. this would be my first true 3D plane.

I can harrier, and hover the twist for about 5 seconds, but i'm getting better at it....I also fly a .40 ultimate bipe and a .40 big stick.

so lets hear what you think.

thanks!

I'd probally think about doing an electric to nitro conversion on one of 3DHS planes
http://www.3dhobbyshop.com/ARF-Airplanes_c_183-2-0.html.
Problem is other than a profile there are not any real good 3D nitro's in that size range.
Those planes you just listed are lumberwagons.
A good 3D arf is built extremely light. That is why it's so easy to build one in electric. Because electric don't shake like a nitro they can do alot light construction.

I think a 91 would yank those planes around like a rag doll.

I have to agree those planes seem a bit small for a 90 2stroke

well I have a 91fx in a 64" extra 300 from great planes, ya itsa a lumber wagon, but it sounded like he wanted some 3d performance!

and that kit comes ready for a nitro set-up complete with tank and engine mount!

It's not an ARF, but I'll bet a Mojo or one of the EE series would LOVE that .90

Get an Aeroworks pro extra260 .60 size!! I wouldn't call it a full all out 3D plane but it will hover with ease. Only $199 too!
