• 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).

The Acro Sport plans locate the root rib too close to allow placing a wrench on the bolt for the attach straps. The rib should be moved farther onto the spars so the bolt can be accessed.

The plans are not really clear on this area where the I strut sits and the flying wires attach. The top and bottom plate spans across and loads are transmitted through the plates that are glued to the face of the spar.
