• 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.

Hi all,

I think I know the answer to do this but am asking here to be sure.

With the rudder pedal neutral (straight up), should the master cylinder parallel the rudder pedal? We are assuming the brake pedals should be tipped slightly forward when neutral. That would put the attachment at the brake pedal about 3 1/4" behind the vertical plane through the rudder pedal attachment. Therefore we think the master cylinder attachment should also be 3 1/4" forward of the rudder pedal pivot. Does this sound right?
