• 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 REALLY need some help. I started building my fuselage (Delta Version) & then decided to use old style bungee truss at sta 13. This leaves me with a problem. Distance between fwd/aft gear attach points is 21", I've got 13" with the way I've built my truss. I'd really LIKE to use it as is. Please see the attached sketch. I'm hoping that there are some stress type engr out there with an opinion. Thanks for any help. PS ... fixing this would involve MAJOR changes to my truss.... uploads/20080921_214210_gear_question.JPG
