• 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.

Rear Flying Wire Fitting - source for rect. tubing

Before I go ahead and make the rear flying wire fitting by banging it out of a sheet of.o95 4130... I wanted to be sure that the rectangular tubing wasn't available somewhere. I've checked Aircraft Spruce, Wicks, WagAero, Airparts. None of them carry it.

It's a rectangular tube 7/8" x 1 1/4" x .o95.

Any sources... please let me know.
