• 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 of you.

I am doing my Pitot boom and I have one doubt.

I am planning to use 1/4" O.D. diam aluminum tube for dynamic pressure.
Wonder If I should use 1/4 I.D diam aluminum . Somebody told me If I am about to feed twoanemometers from this source, I should go with 1/4 I.D.aluminum tube. For my intentions, 1/4 O.D. diam tube fits best but I do not want to go further without advise.
