Hello:
I'm looking at purchasing a flying Bolt. It has a O360 180hp engine. And no inverted system. That doesn't bother me to much. What does bother me is that the empty wieght is 1180lbs. From my research that seems to be a heavy Sky Bolt. Espeacially for a 180hp. I'm aware that no two homebuilt airplanes will fly the same. But I'm wondering if this bolt may be to heavy for decent acro with the 180. I read the airbum report on the 180 bolt and liked what I read. I'm just wondering what that plane tiped the scales at. How does the weight of this Bolt compare to other 180 Bolts.
