• 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.

S1C-S1S conversion

I am currently trying to convert a stretched C to an S configuration by replacing the C wing, rudder, horizontal stabilizer, and elevators with components from a S model.

I've ran into a little problem at the horizontal stab-elevator area. The original C elevator was supported by two hinges on each elevator half, the S elevators are single hinge per side.

Are the S elevators connected by a carry through spar or/ tube orwhat?

Any advice, pictures or diagrams would be greatly appreciated.
