• 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).

Hi.
I started a Pitts S1-11B building in my apartment in Paris.The wings will be done by the end of the year,and I am looking to make a choice between Superflite or Polyfiber for the covering.I love the glossy look and light weight of Superflite,and that seems to be strong,as Sean Tucker use that system on his biplane for hard aerobatic.The Polyfiber is also very good,and for some biplane specialist like Kevin Kimball that's the best system to use.
Does somebody from the Biplaneforum has experience with covering aerobatic biplane and could give advices.If I use Superflite,I would like to double cover the inboor wings with 2.7oz and 1.7oz to protect them from the prop blast.!!!
For the engine that will be a 300HP(the Zoche seems to be very interesting),and the prop,a three blades MT.
Nice building and great fly to everybody.
PittsS111B
