• 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.

Morning Gents:
Was flying last week and had a slight power loss at liftoff and very slight
engine roughness (staggered around the pattern and got down OK). Tend to think it's ignition related, but also wanted to check for partial fuel starvation, and it occurs to me that I'm not sure where the main tank vent line(s) exit(s) are located (bought the airplane used this past summer).

Airplane is an older (1988) plans built, with wing aux tank and inverted fuel and oil. Any info is appreciated (yes, there was plenty of fuel on board).

Inching closer to committing to build the Skybolt (R)!
