How the aircraft "presents" to the judge on the ground is an important component of competition aerobatics. I understand that the biplanes have fallen out of favor mainly due to this aspect rather than their raw aerobatic capability. I suspect that a "sub scale" Extra would be at a disadvantage right out of the gate. I'm not versed in competition aerobatics enough to back this up, but hopefully someone can clarify/dispute.
