• 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.

Finally, after about 25 years, I actually did something to the Acro Sport besides move the box around. Naturally, I immediately ran into something that puzzles me.

The butt ribs on the center section have grooves cut into the bottom capstrip to accommodate the front attach fittings. Is that normal? I don't see anything about it on the drawing, but those aren't highly detailed drawings anyway.

In the process of looking through past threads to see if I could find an answer to this, I was disappointed to find that I couldn't see the pictures in Smizo's build thread (part 1 - didn't check the others). Is that just something I'm doing wrong? I don't have the same goals, skills, or tooling he does, but I was still counting on getting a lot of useful information from those threads.
