• 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).

In theory, during a stall, the top wing would stall first being further forward. For those flying/flown skybolts, how true is this in practice? How would one know? and are they so close that it doesnt really matter?

I am asking because I was thinking of fitting an Angle of Attack Indicator, but prefer to mount it on the lower wing [less hassle] but literature Ive found suggest they be mounted on the upper due to the above reason...
