• 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.

One question

I am building the built up ribs of my Skybolt. I have read several times the note in instructions about drag ..anti-drag interference asking to move vertical upright from Sta 24" to 23 3/4".

I am looking for advise on this subject before building all ribs in jig.

Also, I would like to know how may ribs are affected by that interference
to build them right at first time.

Thanks in advance

Manuel Benito
