• 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.

The radio in my Skyolt is an old Edo Aire 553A. It was not working well and I believe the problem was the center wire connection of the coax cableto the tray, it had become detached hence nosignal. This connector is strange to me.It looks like the center conductor should be strippedwith some insulation left to insulate from the ground cap thatthe shield is then soldered to while the center conductor is soldered to the center terminal. If any one can make since out of this or isfamaliar with the connector I would like to know If I am correct in my method of connection? I know I am not very clear. It is hard ot explain but any help would be appreciated.
