Re: Old Timers



Please forgive as I am new to this and still learning. I did not build but bought a highly modified TW plane that is said to be a combination of DF/Q2/Cessna ? It is a trike with an LS1 so I have been watching all posts on both pages and now have some questions.

1) Has this only happened to LS1 canards ?
2) Has this only been Q200 s ?
3) What is the configuration of the planes with failures (tri or taildraggers) ?
4) Is the over board Muff heat being dumped just infront of the area failing ?

On either this page or the Dfly page there was a recent post regarding paint color and caution based on the foam will deteriate at 180 F so UV relate heat becomes an issue with dark colors. If this failure is on Q200 s that many have the O235 with an operating oil temp around 212 F could there be heat damage occuring to the internal foam thereby weaking the canard interior strength allowing the failure ?

As stated I am new and ignorant on most matters as well as the specifics of the planes that have had failures. Just some questions based on high level knowledge - trying to see if there is a correlation that can be built.
