• 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).

i bought a 76x62 carbon fiber prop from Steve Hill at twisted
composites and have been flying it the last 4 weeks.The prop is nice
workmanship with perfect balance and tracking.I had a performance
propeller wood prop on it before and compared the weight of the two.
The wood prop weighed 14.75 pounds versus 15.25 for the carbon prop.I
accelerate harder on takeoff with about 500 fpm more than the wood prop
and also accelerate harder on 45 and vertical down lines.My cruise
speed stayed the same at 150 mph at 2600 rpm but top speed increased to
180mph at 3050 rpm straight and level.I fly freestyle airshow type
routines and maintain more energy and altitude with the carbon prop.I'm
very satisfied with it.
