• 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've read a lot of advice saying that purchasing an S-1C is a waste of time if one is interested in getting into competitive acro...since before long the average pilot will be wanting more inverted performance.

Other than the wing and engine, what is the difference between the C, S, and other S-1's?

I've also heard mention of a stretched fuselage, can anyone explain the difference and why it matters?
