Hi Guys,
Would Don Stewart, and Tom Moore get together and post the necessary information for
the Deer Valley Fly-in? That's a Fly-In that us in the West could make... I'm
going to try!
David Hiatt

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Hey Guys,
"Honey Lamb" and I are flying to Phoenix in Oct. We will land at Deer
Valley. There are a couple of choices for parking and fuel as far as my
Flight Guide shows. Does anyone know which is the best deal and are the
Q and avionics going to be safe? Matt Guensch (sp.) didn't I see your Q
in the
parking area at Deer Valley? Is there availability in a hanger for a few
days?

Oil Cooler Adapter Drawing

The Ives Hive <iveshive@...>
 

Attached is a drawing for an oil cooler adapter to use between an 0-200 and an El Reno oil filter assembly.This drawing along with either an El Reno or Continental gasket (for sizing) should suffice for fabrication.
I remember the subject of cooling was discussed in depth (I think late fall or winter of last year). Issues including coolers ,shrouds, cowl flaps, air flow, and air inlet sizing were addressed. A look into the archives might prove beneficial to find overheating cures.

Thanks Barry for the info. Thanks Dave for the invite to Ryan field. I
probably won't be at Copperstate (unless I can sneak out). Our foster
daughter and her husband live near Deer Valley so for convenience will
stay there. They are pregnant so we want to go look at her pouchie
tummie. Thanks Don I will E-mail Matt and see what he has on insider
information.
Bruce Crain

P.S. Dave, if you're coming to Ottawa could you bring arrival procedures
for Copperstate? My computer doesn't do attachments. Are you going to
Copperstate?


Bruce,

Matt's a DF guy on the other list. His email is N329DF@....
His DF is still hangared at Deer Valley. But he works over at Glendale
Airport now. Email him direct for hangar space.

Deer Valley is pretty secure airport, so your equip is ok overnight, a
pretty good midsize airport.

Hangar space in St. Pete FL

I have plenty of hangar space for a Q in St. Pete Florida at PIE until Mid

Re: Phoenix Deer Valley

Barry Stearns <blstearns@...>
 

Bruce,

I flew out of Deer Valley when I was in college back it 1996. It was,
then, a very safe place as far as Avionics go. At that time, I didn't hear
of any theft problems. A friend was recently down in Feb. and had no
problems. He stopped at Westwind Aviation (I took training there and
rented their aircraft quite often) and though I don't recall the price
amount, he said it was pretty fair. Just watch those parallel runways.
Some of those pilots on the field like to climb over into the other runways
flight path on climb out. Hope this helps a little.

New GU canard wax?, Q2 status

Edward N. MacLeod <ed@...>
 

Hi gang,

Just a thought:
There was a brief infomercial on a new kind of car wax. Instead of
water beading up on the surface, like regular wax, the water spreads
out. The water film gets thinner and thinner until the surface becomes
essentially dry. Has anyone seen this commercial? It sounds like a
possible GU rain fix. I sure would like to take a razor blade to those
vortex generators.

Q2 Status:
My Q2 (Revmaster) is almost ready for flight #2.
I relocated the roll trim so that it can be readily adjusted in flight.
The engine is running great at all speeds. The carb is tuned for
exactly 100deg F EGT drop from full rich to max EGT.

I am not sure this is a problem, but I am only getting 2900 rpm on fast
taxis. Ground acceleration seems like it could be better. The prop is
a 54-48, Arrow Prop. The airfoil thickness on the prop seems thick for
the horsepower. It also has plastic tape over the leading edge for rain
tolerance, the tape is fairly thick (>.005") and not faired into the
wood.

Any thoughts on the above are appreciated.

Big Thanks,

Ed


Re: Ottawa Rides.......Spars again......

Galletti Joseph N Civ ASC/YTJG <Joseph.Galletti@...>
 

Please don't confuse Alan's efforts with the original Quickie spar design. Alan is utilizing a new design that does not employ the original tubular spar design of the original Quickie's. His is something new that is currently being tested on a single place Quickie, only. It looks like the best solution to getting a LS-1 airfoil on the Q-1 today, w/o the old spars being available. In your search for carbon spars, you need to contact someone other than Alan. (I can't remember who it is but he had a for sale ad in the last QBA newsletter.) If you want to be the first one out of the chute, wait to see how the new spar design works on the Q-1 and try and design a similar spar for the Q-2 and let us know how it works.

Re: Sparrow Strainers

John
I built mine without any pitch trim on the elevators at all. In-flight trim
is achieved with reflexor. I adjusted the sparrow strainers for no
deflection of the canard in cruise and all seems to be working well.

Re: Sparrow Strainers

DKeats/CWalterson <dkeats@...>
 

John ----- Regarding the sparrow strainer question.--- On my Dragonfly
after installing them I have never had to adjust. I think the idea is
that the stainers pull the elevator down and the spring will trim them
up. As long as the strainers are close to the same angle of attack as
the canard it should all work. My strainers are upside down
airfoils..... As for fine tuning , I find once my elevator is set I
never touch it all year. I use the reflexor to get the elevator EXACTLY
inline with the wing. No down elevator for me. This seems to give me the
best speed. I can still fly hands off in cruise but only long enough to
scratch my nose, after that it will gradually roll left,right or pitch
up or down. Whatever it feels like doing. Hope this helps--- Chris


Re: Sparrow Strainers

Robert M. Farnam <bfarnam@...>
 

Jon,

That is what I plan to do. Set the spring trim to neutral and then try to get
the strainers to hold the elevator without spring pressure. You might set up the
spring trim system so you can change the drag brake on the trim wheel in flight.
Then spring load will cause the wheel to backdrive to relieve the load. This
will let you see what spring load exists in cruise. Two things to remember. My
airplane goes noticeably faster with the elevator reflexed up (pitch down).
Also, remember that Gary Hertzler recommended that we get the springs to do as
much of the work as possible because that will cause lower trim drag. By the
way, I can always feel slight "nibbling" at the stick in cruise, even in smooth
air. It has no effect on the airplane that I can see, and the airplane has fair
pitch stability if my CG isn't too far aft. I don't know if what I am feeling is
stall (I doubt it) or just turbulence from the propwash. It seems to me that the
strainers ought to be outside of the prop arc to avoid trim change due to power
changes. I think if the strainers were really stalling, there would be a pitch
response from the Q and I've never felt that.

Pat,

Right. No strainers previously, only trim springs holding the elevator.

No, not really. I have the plans setup with the rope, springs, and wheel.
That does give me something to think about though. Maybe, while on the
ground, I could note the position of the trim wheel while the elevators are
at their normal cruise position. Then fly, move the trim to the previously
marked position and begin adjusting the strainers until it flies hands off
with the trim in this position. The problem with all of this is the fact
that there are so many variables involved (CG, t-tail, reflexor, trim,
etc...). Those of you that are flying know that you can lean forward or
back to control pitch - the Q is really sensitive.

Did you have any strainers at all before?... or was it the trim
which was holding the elevator in trail?

Does your trim mech. have a neutral position where the spring is
not holding anything?

Re: Oil Cooling

L.J. French <LFrench@...>
 

I am interested in this subject also. Based on all the Q-Talk feedback
this is a common problem. I have done the best job possible with attached
aluminum cooling fins with shroud cooling around the filter as well as the
engine belly cooling shroud, but my suspicion is that the temps will still
be high. I looked at modifying the El Reno adapter, but this didn't seem
feasible. Tom - I would be interested in your adapter as well.

Oil Cooler

The Ives Hive <iveshive@...>
 

Long story made short - Oil cooler blueprint gone!. However I,ll be more than happy to sit down at the kitchen table with my straight edge spaghetti box and redraw it. The adapter I copied it from was Earnest Martin's . I have some pictures of his mighty fine installation job. I,ll try to get this together in the next couple of days and submitt it for review - It seems to work well for Earnest. My plane has a way to go before I,m cooling oil in the sky!
