• 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.

In 1970, August issue of sport aviation there was an article written by Noel J. Becar (EAA 725) about the design improvements to aileron control on EAA biplanes. I have come across this and have questions. I have the set of controls made for my unit from the prints. The logic for the change is understandable, if it was to only take care of yaw effects. But my engineering mind says there was more to it. So,Iwould like totry an findout moreabout this change. Before I began to remake all of these partsor cover the wing.

Any one who can offer somehelpto clear this up, or knows of Mr. Becar and how to contact him,would be appreciated.
