• 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).

Hello All:
Attached are 8 photos of the Acrosport 2 Mods on C-FLSE.

Shows the right side of the fuselage with the modifications to better support the Grove Landing gear. The lower tube was replaced from station 1 to 3 and is 3/4" x 058" 4130. This tube passes through a 1" x 1.3/4"
rectangular tube which is the primary support for the gear. The truss network is all 3/4" x 049" above the lower longeron and a short vertical compression tube of 1/2 " x 058 is inline with the aft gear mounting bolt. At the bottom of station 2 going from left to right side the round 3/4 " tube has been replaced with a section of 1" x 1.3/4 " rectangular tube.
Above the gear the 1/4" fire suppression line to the engine and fuel tanks. A 1" crankcase vent is above that. Next is the Aluminum duct mount with Dynon engine module, harness and the ADSB receiver. Above and below the receiver is the electrical ducts.
Also you may see a rectangular hole between the N strut legs this allows access to aux fuel tank sender, roll wires. the Dynon transponder and voltage regulator.
