• 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.

I found an Acrosport II that I am somewhat interested in, but I found out something aboutit that peaked my curiosity. It has an HIO-360 in it, which came out of a helicopter. The owner said that it was a beefier engine and that its redline was actually 100 rpm higher than a regular IO-360. He also said that alot of aerobatic airplane builders liked these engines for those reasons. I have no reason to doubt him, but I was just curious, and wanting to know more about this. Can anyone comment?
