• 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.

Hopefully you guys can help me with this.
I have a few quick questions about my s1 with ultimate wings build:
1. Is there a major benefit for aligning the slave strut behind the I strut?
2. Is a support rod needed underneath the horiz stab to the fuselage or is thetail wire alone sufficient or are both needed?
3. Should an extra Tail wire on the top of the horiz stab be added, mimicking the christian eagle?
Thanks for the help
