GP skybolt

I bought a gp skybolt art a few years ago already built, my first few flights I hated it , after removing a lot of lead and changing to a saito 100 and several flights I loved the way it flew, also moved cg as far back as could, now I am looking for a replacement, need suggestions, looked at the christian eagle but the weight and bad reviews dont look good, the steen skybolt by seagull looks like it needs a 120 or 20 cc to fly, thought maybe i am missing something else out there that fits the bill, thanks ,,,

the size of the skybolt, I like that i could haul it in one piece in my van, that the only i dislike about biplanes is the assembly time at the field,

OK so that gives us a 60in wings span, How do you feel about Pitts's or Ulitmates?

Black horse models do a few in this size.
