• 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.

Thought it best to start a new topic, seemed to move in that direction.Cont. from diagonal thread.

Jerry, I dont know why but I can find out. The only part of the Firebolt gear style I am using are the 2 ears or pivots, if you will, that come off the lower longerons at sta 13 & 22, nothing else. This also means that all I have to install at sta13 is the cross tube that the flywires attatch to, nothing else. Kind of hard to describe until I start to put it together and show you all.
