• 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.

Throttle problems

The Throttlequadrant I have is the so called reversing type. When the handle is pushed forward the lever moves back. Thismakes fora problem because if directly connected to the carburetor, the throttle is closed when the handle is pushed forward, and it should of course be the opposite. Obviously som sort of reverser is needed. I have been thinking of making a reversing torque tube mounted on the firewall, but what is the normal way to deal with this problem.? Any ideas?
