Default lightest wing loading ARF biplane 4 ch

A lot of us love the slow flying 250 size biplanes , relaxing planes to fly .

I would like a 4 channel ARF biplane with a LOW wing loading to fly and enjoy slow flight and landings . And in my searches the lowest wing loading ARF bipe that I have found is the Electrifly SE5a , which comes in at ,
Wingspan: 34" (864mm)
Wing Area: 420 sq in
Weight: 1.3-1.5lb
Wing Loading: 7.5-8.2 oz/sq ft

I have and fly one already ,and it is 24 oz total flying , and enjoy it a LOT ,
AND I also have the GWS TM400 also , but I was wondering if there was maybe a slower flying bipe with even less of a wing loading available ? Or do I already have the two lightest wing loading , 4 ch , ARF biplanes , available .

And I wondered if anyone knew of one ?

Thanks

The foam ones are going to be your best bet i think. If you scratch build a balsa one you could keep the weight down but its hard to find a light bipe arf out of balsa cause they have to mass produce them. Here is a cute bibe that i would convert to electric .http://www.outerzone.co.uk/plan_details.asp?ID=1355 Its a free download .Here is one that should be easy to build.http://www.outerzone.co.uk/plan_details.asp?ID=816
