• 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.

Prop Length/pitch

Hi people,
I'm currently flying my S1D with an injected 150HP Lyc 0320, and my prop is too coarse, (Sensenich 74 x 56). I'd like to see a list of what people with an 0-320 are using, before I re-pitch mine. Current my 2400RPM cruise is 135mph which is great, but its climb performance is not great.
I'd appreciate some numbers guys.
