• 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 Thrust Line

I have a question for you all out of curiosity. With an opposed engine installed the thrust line of the engine is by plans some 6" below the upper longeron. If you install a round engine you would have to move that down to the "middle of the square" in the front. Would or would not that change the characteristics of the airplane ??? Anyone ???
