Default Balsa micro build

I have a umx brushless receiver/esc, eflite bl180 2500kv motor and servo from a crashed carbon cub umx. I have built some balsa planes so I have a bit of experience while being fairly new to this great hobby. I am wondering if anyone can recommend either a kit or plans that would suit the afore mentioned equipment. I am interested in all suggestions as far as type of plane. Thanks in advance for any advice given.

Look up Bob Selman Designs, at----- http://www.bsdmicrorc.com/
He has many planes made for that system.

The little seaplane is very cute, I my have to get that one some day.

Just about anything that comes out similar size and weight will be fine. Some of the larger Guillows rubber power FF models convert nicely.

This is a 3Ch Heath I built from a Stevensaero kit using a brick and Motor out of a crashed UMX T-28.
