• 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).

Engine mount weights

Cansomebody give me a ballpark number on how much a steel tube engine mount weighs? The reason I ask is I'm interested in installing a Rotec R2800 on my Hatz Bantam, but it weighs a wee bit too much. But I have access to a welder (my dad) who can make a mount out of TITANIUM tubing. I'm wondering how much weight I'd save.
