• 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).

For all you test pilots out there, whats your opinion on how to determine best angle, rate, and glide speed. My son Dans plane will climb well over 2000 ft per minute at full power,IE: IO-540 G1B5 290 HP at 2575 rpm , Gee I think that solves the best angle problem , right ?. However what I am asking ,are real world conservative numbers , not Rocket science. I mean this in the most respectful way, to all you professionals out there who are reading this post . Thanks Dave
