• 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'm having to re-build a pair of I-struts for the-I'll call it the 'classic'- skybolt I'm modifying and noticed the builders manual has a 2 degree dihederal for the lower wings. My plans forthe 'S' have it at 1 degree. Since I have no plans for the 'classic' I'm wondering where the 2 degrees came from. Is that specific to the 'D'? Anyone have an idea about that or even better does anyone have a set of pre-Hale plans they could check? Thanks.
