• 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.

I know this has been discussed but I can't find it in a search so i am asking again.
I decided to go with clipped wingas and eliminate the tip bows. I like the squared-off look. I know that everything after the last full size rib is eliminated. My question: Where to locate the aileron hinge. Are the Steen drawings on this good, or is there a better way?
