    • 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.

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 : )
