• 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.

I've been looking at what time and effort savings I can make using the kits available from Steen Aero. The main one I was looking at was the Wing Rib Basic Materials Kit, which says it saves cutting 1500 gussets(not quite sure what a gusset is yet). What is left to on the items in the kit and how much time is it actually likely to save?

Is it really worth using their kits for the wood components of the wings or is there a big cost saving in doing it yourself? Thanks,
