Yet another "What model next?" thread...

Hi All,

I know this has been done to death on most mdoel forums out there, but nevertheless I'm still not sure what to get next.

I first started flying a few years ago, and got proficient solo. I then stopped flying for a few years - lifestyle changes meant i got had no time.

I've recently started flying again, and now have my A certificate. I've currently got a Black horse models Twister, which is I think an ARTF copy of a precedent fun fly. It's a low wing sports model, 40 sized, 56" span.

I realise the twister still has a lot to offer, but, i want to start building a new model. I really enjoy building - yet time constraints mean i'm unlikely to finish whatever i choose to build for a few months - hopefully sometime this year though!!.

I think where I ultimately want to be in RC is precision aerobatics - not 3d really. So i'm looking for a model which fits that.

I'm also wanting something a bit bigger than the twister's 56" span, and a bit more powerful - perhaps 70-90 sized two stroke.

Does anyone have any recommendations? MUST be kit or plan, i do not want an ARTF.

It needs to be easy enough to fly for someone who passed their A certificate 6 motnhs ago.

I'd prefer a built up wing to a foam cored one.

So far my shortlist contains the following:-

- Terry Westrop's Loaded Dice II plan (not sure if this is built up or foam/veneer wing)

- Chris Foss Extra Wot (although i'm put off by the cost of this, and the foam wing).

Any other ideas are much appreciated!
