• 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).

Blair, beautiful plane, I am envious of the tidy panel layout you came up with, that will be a future project for me after I have mine flying (hopefully next year)

I was hoping that you may have a sketch or dimensions of the rigging boards you used for your wings, I just received the Falcon plans set from Devin York for the wings so that should make it easier for me to build them but if If you had something sketched out already I would appreciate copying that to double check my dimensions for the rigging boards

all the best with the sale of your plane

Thanks Dan,

I didn’t build it, there are some rigging boards but I don’t have them as soon as I do from the previous owner I’ll sketch it up.

Hi, Do you have any pictures of your S1-F that you can share/send? What is its empty weight? Do you have an estimate on time and cost to ship to the United States?
Thanks!

That was a quick sale Blair - the new owner will spend more time upside down than upright.
