• 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 $49.99/year or $6.99/month 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). Annual membership also comes with two BiplaneForum.com decals.

Baby Lakes vs. Acrosport II

What kind of support is there for the Baby Lakes? Does the Baby Lakes meet LSA requirements. I know it does for top speed and weight but what about stall speed?

I'm considering doing a one hole version of the Buddy Baby lakes. But I don't want to be building something with ancient or non existant support.

Seeing no topic or area for the Baby Lakes a design that's been out there for decades on the "Bi-plane foum" doesn't enhance my confidence.

I really want a Christen Eagle but that is completely beyondmyfinancial capabilities. I really love theAcroSport II but I was thinking that a baby lakes would get me good training for a lot less cost.

But other than the engine, would the baby lakes take that much less time and cost than just starting out with an acro II?
