• 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).

We talk about engines every once in a while on the forum but I'd like to get a general consensus of engine size. So... I'm thowing out the question: What size engine are you thinking of hanging on the front of your Skybolt ? Add your comments too.

I'll be hanging an R-985 if I can find one. If not... it'll beone of them RussianVendenyev M14s.


So mark me down for 360 and above : )
