Re: Brake Lines

Jerry Marstall <msusa@...>
 

I went the expensive route to protect my brake lines and make them easily
repairable. I stopped by McDonalds and got a handfull of straws. I then
fit the straws together, spot epoxied them to the gear and put a layer of
glass over them. Then all you have to do is slide the brake line tubing
down through the straws.

My Q (incomplete project) was built back in the stone age, and has been
exposed to too many UV rays. Subsequently, one of my brake lines (in
the cockpit) is quite brittle. So brittle in fact that it takes little
effort to snap it anywhere I please.

I was wondering if anyone has worked out an easy means to route new
lines from the cockpit to the wheel pant?

For those of you who are building, I would strongly advise running an
oversized line which to use as a conduit, so you can change your lines
at will.

Update on N45JP Quickie 200 Livermore, CA

I now have 7.5 hours on N46JP and can't say enough about it. Its kinda like what I dreamed about for 18 years but much more rewarding, exciting and fun! To this point all has been going well and hope to make Ottawa on that Friday. We're suppose to pick up "T" on our way and I just want to tell him there are no United passes this time. We will be there to get you. Be ready to put your bird in the air for the trip. OK!

Last week installed a Garmin 295 Color Map and went out today to check it out. The color display is large and easily readable and a smoked canopy makes it even better. Functionality is good and it's user friendly. The unit is installed center panel and is able to use battery or aircraft power. Navaid autopilot with Jim Hamm coupler is set up to read and track either GPS or Terra Vor. With the external antenna installed pilot side just under the canopy lip, satellite acquision is real fast.

Departed 25R at Livermore with the option and returned for a high speed pass. Farnam said from his vantage point it looked and sounded like a screamin me me, I was only at 165 mph and climb out at 1,800 fpm with a 60/66 Warnke Prop, whoopee! We believe it has something to do with being small, goes fast and gets out of yur site quickly. At 4,000 ft. I saw 195 mph indicating on the Garmin but haven't completed flutter tests yet and will moderate until that time. Flew from Livermore to the central valley and climbed to 8,000 ft. Leaned for altitude with EGT. Outside air temp at altitude was 7C and clear but bumpy. Carb air temp was 26C. Flight was non eventful and the bumps dissipated. Traveled up and down the valley several times in about a 20 mile race track config. and just observed everything. Oil temps were 200-210 degrees, oil pressure was stable at 40 lbs. CHT was consistently 325 degrees and manifold pressure was about 23". Slow flighted to 100 MPH and went through all sorts of maneuvers. Continued increasing speed in 10 mile per increments and repeated maneuvers. The AC seems stable through all regimes. Even got comfortable enough with the pressure sensitive Leather Conforfoam seats to listen to a little Shania Twain. WOW! Descended back towards Livermore and shot my first approach without using speed brake (belly board) or reflexor. Wind was 24 at 20K. AC settled in and landed straight ahead with a little left aileron. What a nice day for a ride!

I must say, this aircraft, like Bob Farnam's is really easy to fly and control. I know it's because of the refinements we both have made. Mine more copying his than invention. I would say to you guys finishing your birds, if you do it the way we did you will get the same results. A docile little bird that goes like stink!

I hope this little memo encourages all of you to work a little faster. It really is worth the ride! Jim Patillo

Pat,

Not sure if you have a GU or LS1 canard but Q2BT1 from 2/15/81 suggests
securing the brake line inside the finished slot core (in the space between
the slot core and elevator). This is how my Q2 was done. Probably not the
ideal but is less work that slitting the slot core and does allow for pretty
easy replacement IF you have enough room.

Airplanes are Better

John Loram <johnl@...>
 

My grown up daughter sent me this one.
Has it been on the list already?............

Why Airplanes are Better than Women

1. An airplane will kill you quickly . . a woman takes her time.

2. Airplanes can be turned on with a flick of a switch.

3. An airplane does not get mad if you 'touch and go.'

4. An airplane does not object to a preflight inspection.

5. Airplanes come with manuals.

6. Airplanes have strict weight limits.

7. You can fly an airplane any time of the month.

8. Airplanes don't come with in-laws.

9. Airplanes don't whine unless something is really wrong.

10. Airplanes don't care about how many other airplanes you have flown.

11. When flying, you and your airplane both arrive at the same time.

12. Airplanes don't mind if you look at other airplanes, or if you buy
airplane magazines.

13. It's OK to use tie-downs on your airplane.

Re: Brake Lines

Jon Finley <finley@...>
 

Pat,

I installed hydraulic brakes on my Q1 after it was finished. I removed the
elevators and carefully slit the slot core with a knife. Using a dremel, I
cut a small channel in the foam. I placed my brake line into the channel
and glassed the slot core closed. I had to drill a channel into the
fuselage and into the wheelpant while all was open.

I agree, install a brake line conduit if your at that stage.

Jim Ham <jimham@...>
 

I got this post from another list, but it seems topical ;-)

Regards,
Jim Ham



The re-use of object-oriented computer code has caused tactical
headaches for Australia's armed forces. As virtual reality simulators
assume larger roles in helicopter combat training, programmers have
gone to great lengths to increase the realism of their scenarios,
including detailed landscapes, and in the case of the Northern
Territory's Operation Phoenix - herds of kangaroos (since disturbed
animals might give away a helicopter's position).

The head of the Defence Science & Technology Organisation's Land
Operations (Simulation Division) reportedly instructed developers
to model the local marsupials' movements and reactions to helicopters.
Being efficient programmers, they appropriated some code originally
used to model infantry detachment reactions under the same
circumstances, changed a mapped icon from a soldier to a kangaroo,
and increased the figures' speed of movement.

Eager to demonstrate their flying skills for some visiting American
pilots, the hotshot Aussies buzzed the virtual kangaroos in low
flight during a simulation. The kangaroos scattered, as predicted,
and the visiting Americans nodded appreciatively ... then did a
double-take as the kangaroos reappeared from behind a hill and
launched a barrage of Stinger missiles at the hapless helicopter.
Apparently the programmers had forgotten to remove that part of the
infantry coding ! The Yanks left with a new-found respect for
Australian wildlife. As to what wombats, wallabies and platypuses
carry in their pouches, that shall remain a secret in the interest
of national security.

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

Alan Thayer <alanq1@...>
 

Hi, Barry and All!

Have been lurking here lately, and saw the interest in the carbon spar that has been expressed. As you know, the work that we have been doing out here in California has centered mostly around developping a very easy to build and extremely rugged spar out of carbon fiber rods for the Quickie single-place. However, the design is certainly applicable to the Q-200 as well, and all that is needed is one more exercise of number-crunching to get the proper rod-pack schedule, which the designer does indeed plan on doing eventually. It turns out that i will be in France for several weeks shortly, and i do plan on stopping in at Cap Aviation in Dijon, where Chris works, to check out all the interesting stuf going on there, and to bring back finalized plots and instructions for the Q-1 in time for Ottawa. Hopefully, i can get him to do the number-crunching for the Q-200 as well. The carbon necessary for this project is going to cost a fraction of the cost of the original tubes.

In case you missed it, the drop load tests on my prototype canard went without a hitch, and the canard survived just fine, although, i think the whole process must have aged me by at at least 10 years!

Re: New GU canard wax?, Q2 status

James Postma <james@...>
 

Ed,

An early factory newsletter recommended Rain-X on the canard as a rain fix.
I am going to test with wet wing on take off. This will be an unstick test
same as required for airplane certification; e.g. ground roll with full
back stick and note speed at canard liftoff. Test with:
dry as is
water as is
Rain-X dry
Rain-X wet

If it works as expected one should see a big difference from dry as is and
water as is; no difference between dry as is and Rain-X dry; and perhaps a
small difference between dry as is and Rain-X wet.

I would definitely do the unstick test on your leading edge tape before
flight.

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

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.

Bruce,

Matt's a DF guy on the other list. His email is N329DF@....

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