• 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.

Ailern Horn

Can someone look at their AS1 and tell me which side of the aileron horn that the rod end bearing (lower aileron bottom of slave strut) goes on? The plans "appear" be be showing it on the inside/wing root side but it fits nicely on the outside/wing tip side if you are careful with the bolt direction. It's important to cut the aileron well to correspond with the correct side.
BTW, I do know about the use of a large diameter washer to "capture" the rod end bearing.Edited by: Stubleduck
