• 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.

I have a Question on the spacing between the outboard rib of the Horizontal Stab and the outboard rib of the Elevator. The gap distance between the spars where the hinges attach is determined by the size of the hinges however the on the outer most ribs the space could be less,
or sould it be kept the same as the hinge gap? I've look through the plans
and don't see the answer. Thank you Tim
