Re: Super Quickie

Jonathan King <captain_jonathan_king@...>
 

Whilst on the subject of Super Quickies. Mine needs a re paint as
it getting a bit tatty. What colours can I NOT use as I want
something that will stand out abit when in flight. Other sky users
seem to have a problem seeing me as I'm so small and blend in with
the sky.

As an aside. Any good alternatives to the 503 DCDI /GSC TECH III
prop combination, the engine is the one thing that gives me pause
for concern as a two stroke. I can normally get off the ground in
circa 600m MAUW 600# and between 1500-2000 fpm climb, landing still
takes a bit more ~ 800m with roll out. Burn 15 l/h @ 6000 rpm which
gives about 110kIAS

Barry--------- You almost have to try one on for size. Mine is an
extra two inches wider than the conventional model and it's snug at the
shoulders. In my younger days I used to be a bodybuilder and still have
fairly wide frame. Once you are in the airplane it fits like a glove.
Very comfortable in the reclined position.
I weigh 190 and am 5 11 and it fits great. If you can't get in, get
the Dr Phil book and drop a few pounds, it's a real fun airplane to
fly.---------- Canada Chris


QBA Forum at Airventure

HawkiDoug <hawkidoug@...>
 

I just got the AirVenture forum information back and the Quickie Builders Association forum is 4pm on Friday, July 29th in Pavillion #5. Much to my surprise, Dave Richardson is hosting it again this year. Thanks Dave! :)

These things can change, so please check the schedule when you arrived to verify the time. See you there!

IF things work out, I MIGHT host a cook out after our meeting on Friday back at my camp site. Once I get settled in, I can post a notice somewhere that the cook out is on. Where is a good place to post the notice?

If anyone is working on a Q1 project I have some parts which are now
available:

2 Onan engines, one is zero time, the other has minimum time. Both
have been in storage since 1989. Includes propeller flanges.

2 propellers: 44x32 scimitar design and 40x30 both in new condition

2 nose cowls for the Onan configured Q1. One is brand new, the two
halves have never been drilled; the other is used but in excellent
condition.

I've been lurking for a while and I've been wondering about this same topic. Has anyone tried the HKS-700 engine on a Q1? Is it too heavy?
Many thanks, Chris

One week till the Tandem wing Spring Fling!

Sam Hoskins <shoskins@...>
 

Hi All,

Only one weeks remaining to the second annual Tandem-Wing Spring-Fling,
being held in sunny southern Illinois.

As a reminder, we will be featuring the mechanical wizardry of Professor
Charley Rodriguez as he explains the inner workings of the Slick Magnetos
and the MA#-SPA carburetors.

For my contribution. I will be displaying my new unpainted wheel pants and
will cover the new, radical method of filling pinholes and scratches with
pure epoxy. I will also have the engine cowling off and will explain how
why I don't need an oil cooler with a hopped up engine.

Be sure and check out this super-secret link, which explains all the
details. http://home.mchsi.com/~shoskins/springfling.html

Blue Skies,

Sam Hoskins

I have a Q2 fuselage (four sections), fuel tank, & canopy (all virgin) that I'd sell if someone were picking it up. Not even going to think about shipping it.

Contact me directly if interested (jon@...). FYI: That's all I have, don't even think of asking if I have the metal parts, glass, epoxy, etc....

Jeff you are right that it would be difficult building our fuselages <BR>
from scratch but you must remember there were over 1200 kits sold <BR>
and they are out there. If one is serious about building a Q2 it can <BR>

Re: Columbia, CA Canard Fly In this weekend

Jim Patillo
 

Terry, Hope this helps.

News 04-19-2005
West Coast Gathering of Canards

Tim "Tiger" LoDolce and David Orr have decided to organize a
spring "Gathering of Canards" to bring us West Coasters, and
everyone else who wants to meet us, a little closer together rather
than at some far away event. One very much like Rough River with the
exception that we allowed adult beverages. Yes, Shirl does a
wonderful job of organizing the R.A.C.E. events in Utah and Arizona
but many people just can't get away, don't want to race (you don't
have to and it's still great fun), or just can't afford to fly that
far. At the price of gas these days I can't blame them either.

We wanted it to be at a location that offered something more than
just an airport ramp and maybe some camping close by. We also wanted
it to be somewhere around the middle of California so the SoCal
guys, and all the other EZ drivers in the surrounding states could
get to without making it a big expensive trek. We also wanted it in
a place we could count on good weather. So with that criteria in
mind we have chosen Columbia, CA (O22) that's Oscar 22. It's got
lots of things to do and see besides just sitting back and relaxing
and shoot'n the breeze. (See the links below).

I just got off the phone with Jim the manager of Columbia, CA
airport and the 2nd weekend in May (13-15) is open for our Canard
Gathering. Jim told me the camping/picnic facilities will be shared
with an EAA chapter holding their own little fly-in but that they'd
be happy to have us. Jim's the past president of the Columbia/Sonora
local EAA chapter 1337 and will help out where he can.

Don Denhard (Long EZ) is based at this field and will be a big help
in getting things organized at the airport prior to the event days.

I can foresee a lot of early arrivals on Friday afternoon and early
evening. We will be hosting a "cocktail" party at the camp grounds
that evening. Saturday most will arrive. Some will camp while some
will want to stay in hotels. Some may even want to rent a car but it
is not necessary as the town of Columbia is a 15 minute walk on a
great nature trail. Plenty of places to eat there and the food is
good. I'm sure you are all familiar with Columbia anyway so I don't
need to go on about how nice this place is. Saturday we can repeat
the "cocktail" party. We'll just play it loose which is the way most
would want it anyway.

The campgrounds has built in BBQ's, good indoor toilets with hot
showers. the camping area is very shaded and it's about 20 degrees
cooler over there. The camping fee is $8 per night which includes
the tiedown fee which is $4 for those who choose not camp.

We can just do our own thing for food and drink or we can organize a
picnic style meal for lunch and dinner. We might even have a local
group cater us. We're looking into this side and will let you know
when more is learned. For now just plan on doing your own thing.

So mark these dates down on your calendar and plan to attend. RSVP's
are requested so we can have a guestimate on the number to expect.

When: May 13th thru May 15th (the weekend after Mothers Day)
Where: Columbia, CA Identifier O22 (Oscar 22)
Why: Shed the winter doldrums and stretch your wings
What time: Friday, May 13th anytime after noon to Sunday, May 15th,
about noon.

If you want to rent a car do it now as there are just so many to go
around. If you get one, please share it with those that want to
explore as much as you do.

Damian, the info you get on the list from all its members you have to only half listen to, no matter what you come up with there will be someone that doesn’t like it. I know myself, I like to see if there is a better way and want to learn as much as I can about everything I tackle. But some of them are stuck in the mud. That’s the reason I don’t get to involved in some of the posts.
