• 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.

Hey Guys, my project came with 2 set of tail feathers. The nicer setI want to use has an 8.25 " elevator trim tab. The other set has an 17.25" tab , asper the plans. With no Pitts experience "YET" would it be smart to add the 17.25 tab to the better elevator? I realizea hell of alot of variables in each aircraft can determine the need or lack of trim. But I also know Curtis was pretty smart!
