    Why become a Subscribing Member?

    • 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.
    • 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.

John asked me to post a new post on here (I assume for testing), so I thought I would use the opportunity to ask about something I saw on Steen's site the other day.
Steen sells a set of plans for a clip-wing mod to the Skybolt design. Does anyone here have any experience with clip-winged Skybolts? I'm guessing that it would get you a bit faster rollrate but I'm curious what the penalties are (cruise performance, climb rate, etc.).
