• 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).

Fuel Gauge

Hey Friends,

We love the new skybolt that my wife named "Reddy" and it has both power (O470r) and delicacy in all aerobatic maneuvers! The only shang is that the fuel gauge is not operating. I always fly with a clcock. We're getting the gauge tested and hoping that is the problem or we have to get intoto he fuel tamk to examine the floater.

We do now knoe where the float was installed - worst case scenario - if I had to replace the fuel gauge system whan would be the most cost effective? Has anyone used the old Stearman Sight fuel gauge and how does it do in aerobatoics?

Thanks, Buck <
