• 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 $29.95/year 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).

Anyone have a used inclinometer to sell similar to Aircraft Spruce p/n#10-00600 1"x2.5" (limited panel space)
I just have a problem paying $100++ for a bent level :)
Thank you,

Or, as partial pmt. on a Flight Data Systems T-30 I have advertised - maybe a deal :)

I know somebody who used one of these in his experimental biplane.

I have one of those too. It is sold to the RV crowd as a level indicator. No reason it wouldn't work just fine. Unfortunately, it ended up being to large for the space available. I thought about mounting it in the top wing handhold recess but changed my mind when I found the one referenced above that fit my panel.

Update = this inclinometer requires insetting into the panel, it is not a flush mount.
Worked for me but maybe not for everyone.

I used a boat inclinometer from Boat US it was $10 instead of $50 from WAG Aero and it was a excellent item.

Unit requires a 1.75" x 1.25" hole in panel. It protrudes 1/2" behind the panel and 1/8" in front of the panel
