Best (Non-Obscure Brand) Warplane for Mild Acrobatics?

What's a current production warplane that can do some good hammerheads and snap-rolls without doing any major mods? A brand and plane for which parts are readily available is best!

dont really matter what brand or type of material because they will have very close to the same flight charicteristics if they are to scale models.

pretty much whatever your budget can afford

Really depends what you're asking. A parkzone foam corsair is what I learned warbird aerobatics on. Couldn't have had a better plane for it. But the best best? I have no idea. I'm sure some $1,000 balsa and fiberglass monster.

I am pretty sure what he meant by best is the maneuverability of the air frame.
As much as I love the Corsair it hardly fits the criteria as an aerobatic plane.
although yes very easy to fly it has very slow control response.
the corsair just not the best choice of air craft for aerobatics

There are a million and one P-51's out there and I have never had a "bad" flying example. It will do all you ask and then some.

Parkzone SE%A

Well, if you dont mind going back to the WWI era, the SE5a with an aft CG or just a 1000 mah 3s pack will do very very nicely, I havent tried to knife edge it, but it does beautiful immelmans and spins, rolls are nice with the quad aelerons,
