• 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 am about to start gluing ribs to my lower wing spars. Also, I shall have to isntall the butt fittingsin the Spar. These holes are somehow prone to elongation as I have read. Also, I have read about gluing those fittings to the spar in addition to the fout plans bolts to avoid elongations in those holes.

As I have no experience on this subject, before going with it, I would like ho hear oyour opinions

Thanks in advance
