• 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.

Starduster progress

On Saturday i made the 2 hour drive from Dunedin to Invercargill to visit my friend and help him do a trial fit of his engine and mount to his Starduster Too. We had Gary at Aero Enterprises build the mount and we are pleased with the result.
The mount fit the engine perfect and fit the airframe perfect. The engine sits inside the firewall. We were not too sure this was going to be the case as he has a 300hp IO-540 and Gary told us to expect to have to enlarge the fire wall to accept the engine. All and all a good result as the mount was built on the other side of the planet with only emails and a phone call to go by.

(P.S Beej can you please open me a gallery account?)
