• 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.

Eagle Wing Upgrades - Ongoing

As mentioned in previous posts, I'm planning on some upgrades to my wings, and thought I'd start a post that I can update from time to time on my progress. I'm hoping to get started this winter, but I have a few other things to finish up first

I have a set of partially completed S2C ailerons that I've mentioned in a recent post, as well as an assortment of carbon fiber parts from Benny Davis.

My Eagle is just shy of 1000 hrs, and the inspections I've managed to do with a scope inside the wings don't show any obvious damage. That said, I don't know if the common issue of the drag/anti-drag blocks has ever been addressed and when I bought it a few years ago all the wires inside the wing were completely loose. In the few years I've owned and gotten more comfortable in it I've been flying it harder and harder, and so I think it's time to pull the fabric and perform the 1000hr inspection.
