• 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).

Scottly, Jerry, Mark and any others building the D version,



We recently ordered our sway and stagger wires from Steen. After some
fine tuning David Stone finalized our order but asked us to drill the
forward sway wire mounts out to 3/8" holes. This is to accommodate the
appropriate AN fitting at the wire end. The stagger wire holes are fine as drawn. I think we will clamp another
piece over the piece to move the hole further in and not end up with
less material at the edge. You may want to make a note in your plans
and adjust before you make these fittings.
