I am now looking for a biplane ready to fly, wheather it be an S2, or a Skybolt. I am looking for something quality and ready to fly. The Skybolt/Firebolt posted on barnstormers that sold looks pretty nice. I would like a good 540 and cs prop. Must be a 2 seater.

If someone could help me understand the difference between an S2A vs 2B in a pm I would appreciate it.

I am selling my project and going for something done.

Thanks

An S2A has a 200hp engine and the S2B has the 260hp and symmetrical ailerons. The B also has longer gear, a slightly wider fuselage, sheetmetal back to the back of the back seat and a double canopy. Many of the S2A's also had the double canopy and the later ones had the other changes as well, biggest difference is the engine and ailerons.

Cool, does the B have a lot better performance than an A?

I have found a nice S2E. Would someone who is a (pitts person) mind giving me a call to help me with the decision.

I am looking for some help on what to look at on the 2e as far as problem areas.

Thanks
