• 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 $29.95/year 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).

They're super easy to build following the drawings that Bill Rose posted. I went a step further and taped a 10" digital level to the top of each one.. but a word of warning about that.. you'll be tempted to chase the 0.1 degrees difference between them.. I know I was.. nothing needs to be THAT perfect.. lol.

Yea that 0.01 of a degree cost me a couple of nights until I figured out that was way more precise then what I needed.

Just use bubble levels, they have higher resolution but they won't make you quite as crazy.

Bubble is better than good enough. I use the same level I built my barn with.

Similar to shooting. I use to shoot @ 1000 yards and shot better scores on average with iron sights than with a scope. It's all in your head since you see the rifle moving so much. But it's still in the X-ring! You just don't see the movement with irons and it don't mess-up your head.
