• 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 $29.95/year 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).

Do you think these would work on a SkyBolt? If they fit consider them sold.

Can’t confirm; I’m not sure what the wire pitch differences are between the skybolt and Pitts/Eagle. I’m also not sure if the wire sizes are different.

The wires are he same size on the Pitts but the locations may be different since the Eagle has zero incidence.

One thing to remember, about these metal(Aluminum) Javelins on Stainless steel wires, they must be protected from contact with each other as dissimilar can set up electrolysis, that can substantially degrade the wires, even wood Javelins can degrade the wires if not protected, electrical tape is a quick way to do so. Just something that is rarely talked about, but very important. Dave

The Skybolt has five wires per side. The Pitts has only four.
