• 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’ve noticed on two Acro Sport Ones that I’ve looked at in the past week that there’s a “shackle” on the landing wires at the center section. I assume this was done to spread the wires so the don’t conflict as the cross the rear flying wires. I don’t recall seeing this in any of the old newsletters. Was this a mod? If so, is there any drawing of this shackle?
