• 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.

Helo fellow builders!

I was wondering, I am setting up the trim system to my baby great lakes, I was wondering what other builders have been using and that have been successful with????

I have a screw type installed at this moment that adjusts the stabilizer angle but it is very close to my elevator cable so I have concerns....

I have been thinking about a push\pull cable, but I will have to add a trim tab to the elevator and the cable would be visable and of course create drag so using an internal screw or a screw type that might be smaller.....
