Default Can you ID this profile bipe?

I picked up this profile bipe at a swap meet, but don't know what kit it is. Of course, I have no documentation either. Can you identify it?

Here are the specs:

Top Wing: 45", Bottom: 42"
Length: 44"
Engine: YS 53
Sheeted foam core fuselage
Bottom wing through the fuse (not an open saddle)
Ailerons: 5 1/4 x 20"

Any help with CG, control throws, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

If it's a Sig Ultimate Fun Fly, it's quite modified. I've got an Ultmate and about everything on this plane is different. That doesn't mean that someone hasn't modified it though.

Thank you both. The guys in the profile forum tagged it as an Accel Profile Pitts. I have found the instruction manual which confirms it.
