• 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.

Need some advice. I'm planning the wire and tubing runs through my fuselage for both my Aeroflash wingtip strobes and my pitot static system and wonder what are the pros and cons for mounting them both on either the top or bottom wing. We always rig the Stearmans that we restore with the strobes on the top wing and the pitot static on the strut and wonder if there is a good reason for that.
