Default What is your favorite 80" aerobatic airplane?

I just totaled my Great Planes Patty Wagstaff Extra 300 that I had powered with a Saito 300 twin. It was my best flying and favortie airplane/engine combination. Even thought the Extra was a bit on the heavy side the Saito flew it with authority. They no longer sell the airplane so I am looking for input on good flying aerobatic airframes in the 80" range. I had been thinking about the Hangar 9 Extra 260 but I see they are not making that anymore either.
Thanks for you input.

Too large for your engine? They fly very well, though.

I have a GP 27% 330 with a da50,, it's awesome @ 79",, I'm sure your 300 would fly it great

I thought of that one, but I thought they were discontinued. Maybe a Super Sportster!
