• 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.

As part of my quest in deciding which gear I want to use, I am looking at the RV type gear. I see that the Pitts guys seem to have hadgood success with the RV3/4 gear. However, I've never come across anyone attempting the same approach for the Skybolt? Maybe folks have tried and come across a stumbling block...if anyone has any feedback, such as either hypothetical questions or even real world experiences, I'm all-ears...
