Default Lanier Ultimate Biplane 60"

Has anyone flown this plane before? I have the opportunity to buy one in great condition off of a guy. He just put a new Saito 180GK in it. I am not familier with the planes capabilities, but I was looking for a good sport biplane. Right now I'm flying a great planes shoestring.

What do you think. Good plane? Adequate power. The guy said at full throttle it has a tendancy to torque roll. I think a larger prop should solve the problem. He also said that it's weighing in at about 11 lbs.

I would think that a larger prop would just make it worse (more resistance). The 1.8 is more than adequite power. I'm flying a Seagull 59" Ultimate with an OS 1.08 FSR and it will do anything I want it to do.
