• 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.

Hello! This is Bob. I boughta plane in Wisconsin three years ago. I got it disassembled and was told it was a sky bolt. I am trying to find out what it really is. I have the bottom wings but I do not have a top wing. I need to know what it is so I can make a top wing. I have most of the parts but the motor mount. The length from the firewall to the rudder hinge point top longeron is 159 inches. The top to bottom of the rudder where the fabric goes is 46.25. The landing gear is bungee cord attachment points of the landing gear O.D is 27 inches. I.D is 23.25 inches. The wing attachment on the fuselage O.D is 23 and seven eights. I.D is 21 and an eighth. Anybody have any idea of what this is? Thanks much appreciated.
