• 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.

anybody familiar with the use of composite tanks on aerobatic planes? I have built some of these for ultralight, but I want to know about the stress end fatigue resistance of these on " shaken aircrafts".
I usually use carbon or glass fiber with epoxy, on a foam form, like described on Bingelis books. is it acceptable for a high + an - G's use?

thanks for tips. Hervé
