    • 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.
    • 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.

Time to throw in the towel. I was diagnosed with blood cancer 15+ years ago. I have had 3 remissions and just fell out of the 3rd one.
Someone posted a few weeks ago about a friend finishing his build then dying of cancer. I decided I don’t want that to be me. I am 78 years old, time to revise my life.
I am going to sell my plane, tools, upgrade my camper, move out of the shop, spend some quality time with the love of my life and build a kayak or two just to keep my mind active, so;
I would like to see it completed and flown vs dropping the engine into an RV and scrapping the plane so I will let this ad set here for a bit
before posting to Barnstormers and Van’s.
Anyone interested please email me for specific info and photo’s at [email protected]

The Rotec was purchased new by a forum member to install on a Pitts. He changed his mind and went with fuel injection. The Rotec was purchased by another forum member for his Pitts - - who also changed his mind and went injection. I purchased it for my AS1 and have since changed my mind and was going to go injection. I have a Bendix core that I was told at Osh ’22 they would allow $1000 exchange for a new unit.
