We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction).

Hi guys,
I picked up a project. Fuselage is welded tubes but no tabs or fittings with Ultimate wings. I have the Steen/Pitts S1C Plans but these don't have the details needed for the Dynafocal Mount, Later Torque Tube/Control Setup etc.
Thought I'd ask around just in case someone had a set before going to Aviat.
Thanks
Mike

I rarely see Factory Pitts S1S plans for sale other than the Steen series occasionally. If I sold mine I'd have to get what ever the factory wants because I'd be ordering another set that day.

Since you already have some plans and most of an airplane go ahead and get a set from Aviat. You'll be spending a lot more than the price of the factory plans before you finish your project, guaranteed. People like to keep them as a souvenir and are generally not inclined to part with them.

Thanks Ben, you are so right. I'm kicking myself for loaning plans to a person years ago and not getting them back. It wasn't a real problem since I thought I was done building biplanes...until now.
