• 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.

Looking for some opinion here:

I want to have 1 gyro on board in case of inadvertant IFR.

I have no Vac system and dont dont love the idea of a venturi. I'd love to have an electric attitude indicator...but they are a lot of money. That takes me to an electric turn coordinator.

I found most of these units too long to fit behind my panel. I've found one though that fits behind the panel and runs off my 28Velectrical system. Seems like a winner but........

Is it ok to do acro with this gyro as long as i have it powered down...not caged but not spooled up.????

Can anyone who has used a similar unit comment on what they thought of it. 2 1/4 " Edo Aire Mitchell ?????
