• 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 purchased a Pitts S1S project and soon will be trial fitting the wings and checking incidence and alignment. A friend gave me his 1974 Pitts S1S manual, which states +1.5 degree incidence on both wings and +2 degree incidence on the stabilizer. This would amount to neg. .5 degree wing incidence relative to the stabilizer. We normally see +.5 to +1 degree relative to the stabilizer. Can anyonetell me what incidence we should be looking for when I assemble my Pitts this weekend?
