• 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 have the plans for the Standard Skybolt and I am wondering what the differences are on the Delta. the Steen Site does not give a lot of detail. Aside from the increased gross (part of which you lose the benefit of with the increased weight of the 3 piece wing) and the 3 piece wing. What are the "improvements"? I am particularly interested in the opinion of someone who has experience with both.
In short-what do I get for my $100?
