I'm in the market for a new plane and need some comparisons between the Pitts S2B and the Skybolt in the aerobatic category. I've been flying a Pitts S1C and have S2B time but might be interested in the Skybolt as well. Is there anyone here that does moderate aerobatics and maybe competition in there Skybolt? From what I can find the roll rate on the Skybolt is only 145 degrees - is this correct? <?:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" />

Any info would be appreciated.
