• 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 $29.95/year 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).

The one on the Right looks like it belongs on a set of Firebolt style sliding rails. The one on the Left looks like it is of the cam-over style for the Skybolt.

Yep, that's what I was thinking. He says the larger one is a Tip Up style which sounds like Steen's design but also sort of cut Pitts' style aka Jeremy Holts. Not sure my self. I'm NOT really looking for a two place Slider aka Firebolt style...

Well I guess the clam shell is different.. anyone know if there are plans for this mod floating around? I'm looking for something simple.. I guess the Steen Canopy is the simplest/lightest..
