• 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).

The original plans call for a 3/8 piece of tubing to be welded veritically at station 137 to allow ground adjustment of incidence on Horiz stab. I saw somewhere that some similar planes have been built where the tubes are boxed in to beef up the area. I have never heard of a failure at that point. Anyone seen anythiing more beefy than Lamar's drawings? Any known failures or problems at this location? What have others done? Thoughts?
