• 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 $29.95/year 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).

Hi Neil,

Sorry, other side of the pond so not in a position to make an offer, even if she looks gorgeous...

But curious about the second (front) wire on the elevator. Not sure I ever noticed one before on a S1.
Any idea where it's coming from ?

Regards

Xav

It is a different way to add a brace to the H-stab's leading edge. Looks like it somehow shares the tab on the lower longeron with the other wire and the upper wires also brace the leading edge of the fin. The Eagle also does it like this.
