• 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.

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.).
