• 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).

hey guys, I am almost done with the starboard wing, so I am getting things prepared for the other. What's the best way of installing this pitot? I am going to mount it outboard of the I-strut. I figure I am going todrill a hole through the front spar, then glue on a block either side to strengthen the spar hole and give the tube some stability....what's the best way to 'fix' the tube in the spar? any takers?
