• 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.

I have just purchased a partially completed Starduster Too project. Fuselage complete with canopy, wings need built etc. The engine with the project is a Continental IO-470VO.

Does anyone in the forum know anything about this engine? Is it a good engine for the Starduster? I would like to install a Christen Inverted system but have been told you can't attach one to this engine, does anyone know why?

Any info you could give me would be appreciated. If anyone would like to see my project I have photos I could post.
