• 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). Annual membership also comes with two BiplaneForum.com decals.

Whats up with the Murphy Renegade?

I'm not totally sold on the looks of the Renegade (though they're kind
of cool with the radial engine option), or the diminutive size, but I'm
curious about something: Why so little mention of the Murphy around
the biplane community? It seems to be almost completely ignored, and
I've noticed a few knowing snickers here and there. What's the deal
with the Renegade? Am I missing something?

It's on my short list, though the kit price seems a bit high, and I'm
not sure I'd fit in the thing. They're said to be easy to fly, but
also capable of light aerobatics if you feel like flinging them around
a bit.

Maybe people just don't like Canadians?
