• 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.

Hi all,

The little bit of info on the steen aero site about the delta makes the wings seem pretty good. More GW, easier to build due to shorter wings, more fuel in the center tank, designed by Curtiss. Are there any downsides to the D wings? Heavier, more $, etc? I realize I'd have to buy the D drawings, I don't see $100 extra as a downside.
