• 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.

If you still have your fuselage in a weldable stage, be usre to weld in plenty of ground points for your electrical circuits.

I used two cut-off AN4 bolts on each side of the instrument panel, on the cross member - found that I had to add a couple more as wiring progressed.

Current practice has no more than 3 ground wires running to any one ground point. And the shorter the ground wires are, the better.

Just put them wherever is convenient for you to use when you start wiring.
