• 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).

5/16 Flying wires

I have a set of flown, but never wrecked or ground looped 5/16" flying wires. Rod lengths are:
76-3/16"
70-3/8"
They come with 4 terminal ends (2 LH and 2 RH), plus jamb nuts for both sides.

I just want to find a good home for them and use the money to buy (or supplement purchase of) a set of flying wires for my Pitts with Wolf Wings. They're too short for my application, and I want 1/4" wires anyways.

Make me an offer. We all know what flying wires are worth these days...

the ones I have seem too short for my setup. I'll measure when I get home to see if these might work. They off of an S1?

How short are they for your project? You always can add a 4130 strap if not to short
What kind of aeroplane did they come from?

They came from an S-1, but it was obviously modified airplane with shorter wings or they ran some sort of estension to make the wires work.

Elluding to Dennis5678's post, someone could run a S-2C style flying wire pin/strap set up on the wings to make them work.

My airplane was engineered around 1/4" wires, so that's what I'm going to run!
