• 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.

Reading an article in Kit Planes (great articles by the way, and for you guys overseas... they have it where you can get it via the internet and have access to ALL the articles they've written) Getting off topic here...

reading an article on fire extinquishers.

I see where two, 2 pound bottles would be plenty (one for the engine and one for the cockpits.) But, I haven't found the actual weight of the system. Have a question out to Safecraft ...

Has anyone done this ?

Thoughts ?
