• 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 just talked to MT-Propeller here in Germany...

They said there is no need to use an Lycoming engine with a big Propeller flange if you use an MT Composite Propeller.

Due to the weight reduction he said it never gave a problem with a broken crankshaft on the thin flange...

and they have a new MT-prop gov. (small, not so heavy and for aerobatics)for a third of the price of an Woodward gov.
