• 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 just ordered a Flying Wire tesionmeter tool from Spruce. My last walk around I noticed a substantial difference in tension between all fly wires and decide not to fly until investigating further.
Does anybody have a special sequence to follow to adjuts them. I am overreading too much from lots of difference sources and it is getting confusing. Also de Pitts owner and maintanence manual is not that clear. All help from the Pitts experts is greatly appreciated.
