• 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).

Been a few queries so will post on here. It is currently running an O-360 and EW in current configuration is 1043lbs. It is a clipped wing version 22'.

An yes, it is the most awesome paint scheme you will ever see. If all aircraft out there were painted like this, TCAS would be obsolete.

1043lbs??? That's with a starter electrical system etc etc?? That seems really low but that's coming from a guy who has a Ranger powered Starduster Too soooo maybe it's normal for a 0-360 Skybolt?
