• 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 noticed in several photos the lower attach point for the horizontal stab brace strut seems to be different. On most S1S aircraft the attach point is picked up at the same point of the lower brace wire. On some aircraft this lower attach point is forward, more inline with the leading edge of the horizontal stabs. Is there any reason for the difference or just builder preference? (The forward location seems to not line up with fuselage cross member and might flex lower longeron.)
