• The Biplane Forum is a large global active community of biplane builders, owners and pilots. From Pitts to Skybolts, to older barnstormers, all types are welcome. In addition to our active community, our content boasts exhaustive technical information which is often sought after for projects and maintenance. This information has accumulated over the 12+ years the forum has been in existence.

    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $29.95/year to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web. We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction).

It's not that much difference in it and a 150 hp 0-320
Climb is around 1500 FPM estimated.
2400 rpm cruise is around 125 to 130 MPH
Prop turns up 2750 WOT
(Actually pitched for a 150-160 hp)
Comes off the ground and climbs in approx 500 ft.

I agree and have been sort of leaning toward getting one. Right now I am still busy learning to fly Miss Smith in a way that doesn't scare the hell out of me and any close bystanders.

Just curious, did you do the restoration yourself or have it done by someone else?
