• 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.

This sub forum is to provide a listing of common pitfalls to avoid while building the skybolt and other biplanes in general. Users can add new posts, edit their posts, but cannot delete them.

You cannot reply to posts since its format is a listing rather than a discussion forum [simply start a new topic in a relevant forum]. Pre-approval of postings are not required.

Get your 'gotcha' tips up here!



Note: Don't forget to mention which aircraft your'e refering to...if this list ends up being 99% Skybolt, I will probably move it to the Skybolt forum and have a separate 'Gotcha' listing for other types.
