• 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.

I've been asking around if/what prop sould/could be used on this engine. The R755-A2 is a 300 hp engine... not 275 (of which there is/are wood props available.)

Spoke to Sensenich about 6 months ago and they said that they might have one available in a year. Not counting on that.

I'd like to make a decision soon as to whether I can bolt a wood prop on the engine or if I need to go the C/S route.
