• 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 can't help but keep looking at the Culp Special; I think it's one of the most beautiful biplanes I've seen (at least in pictures!). Has anyone had any first hand experience with one? Are they a reasonable home build? I've sent Steve Culp an inquiry, but I'd like to hear from the Forum.
And the M14 radial...they seem to be gaining increasingly in popularity. Any input here? Estimated costs to acquire, own and operate?

Thanks in advance,
