Default Biplane vs Monoplane

I have never flown a biplane and was wondering what special flight charectristics a Biplane has other than slower flight. Is it more responsive? Less? Slower stall speed? Higher stall speed?

Thx Collin

Default RE: Biplane vs Monoplane

It's all more due to the other basics such as control sizes and throws balance point, how overpowered it is, airfoil and stuff like that. In otherwords the same stuff that makes a monoplane responsive or a trainer gentle.

There's some wonderfully easy to fly biplanes out there as well as some seriously adrenaline inducing aerobatic ones as well.
