• 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 S-1D also had 4 ailerons but had the flat bottom wings. I think your picture shows symmetrical wings, correct? If so then it would be more of the S-1S configuration. If they are flat bottom wings then it remains in the S-1D config.

It is more S-1S if that is the case. It was originally registered as S-1D. I want to get a Super Cub.
Good choice... I fly my J-3 10 times more than I fly my Model 12 or 172. It is just hard to beat! A local buddy just bought a mint Super Cub and it is just a cool airplane! I like my J-3 because it does not use any gas and is just so simple with no electrical.

I have a cheap little S-1 and a ratty old Super Cub. I recommend having both if you can swing it. I can g my face off in the morning, then spend the afternoon on the gravel bars. It is a good thing.
