• 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).

I've looked at the plans, but I'm not clear on it...


What size should the gusset be on the front side of the aileron ribs, the area that the 1/4" capstrips attach to the nose block ? Should I sheath the entire nose block sides with the gussets or just part of it ?


And if just part of it... how much a part of it ?


thanks
