I love my Little Ultimate Bipe - Any recommends for another bipe?

I love flying my Stringfly designed "Little Ultimate Bipe", it's easily the funnest plane I have. I would like to build another Bipe that can use a "C" geared Himax 2015-4100 BL motor. Are there any other good Biplane plans out there that would fly like the LUB but be a little larger?

P.S. - I don't necessarily need something that will hover, I like conventional aerobatics, Loops, Rolls, Knife Edge Etec.

-Thanks-

Mike

The LUB is hard to beat - IMO. Take a look at the HR or Sirocco 30".

A great one would be the "Troll bipe"...a quick search will find 2 newer threads. It flys super! I love the LUB too.

Try the onlyrc.com Equinox.

A bit more expensive, but you get a hand airbrushed bipe with accessories that flies a dream.

Wow, You guys are giving me some great ideas! I have resolved to build nothing but bipes for my Winter building projects. I already have another LUB cut & will start on that soon. I plan on using a Typhoon Micro 6/3D Outrunner on the new LUB & 3S Lipo, should be awesome!

-Thanks- (Keep the ideas coming & I will check them out)

Can't say how it flies yet, but I just ordered a Pitts S2C froam 3dfoamy.com and I am really excited about it. I too am a huge bipe fan, and the Pitts is my all time favorite. I think you can get just plans from them too if you aren't looking for a kit. The guy who runs the site seems really nice as I conversed with him via PM before ordering. By the video on the site it looks like it does a good job at traditional aerobatics, but should also be great at 3d

Great looking plane and flys even better!
