Default power 25 for a biplane

Hello flyers.
I was given a power 25 outrunner with the 60 amp speed control and all the servos.
(as you can tell he crashed the plane lol)
I would like to get a ww1 arf biplane to put it in.
Any ideas?
I have been looking in the net and there's not a lot to choose from.
There was a nice white Waco plane that was discontinued.
Thanks.

Maxford or E-Flite PT-17. Both are good flyers and both will take the Power-25.

It isn't the mistake that causes the crash - it's the time it takes to realize that it WAS a mistake!!

Those Maxford planes look nice.
I'm guessing anything in the 2 pound range should work fine?

Yes, probably. Having the power doesn't always mean you "need" that power. The E-Flite PT-17 is designed to fly using the power 15 and does so very well. A lot of people choose the power 25 because they want to use a larger prop or want to use different batteries. Works out either way fairly well.

The reason I use the E-Flite plane as an example is that it is the only one I have experience with.
