• 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).

How do you determine where to hang the engine ?

Other than the obvious... on the working end of the plane...


In a few short hours I'll be finished up the welds on the fuselage. I'd like to start constructing and installing the accessories. In order to make the instrument panel, etc I need to know where the top of the engine will be once I have it on the plane.


How does one determinewhere to attach it ?
