I believe standard red SCAT hose is ok to use. The bad stuff is the double
layered. It has the lining on both the inside and the outside of the
spring. The problem happens when low pressure in the hose causes the inner
lining to peel off.

You want to use the red single layer stuff.

Ron,

It looks like you have flexible "Scat" or "Skeet" hose between the
carb and carb heat box. You may want to consider making a fiberglass
section there.

Just got back from the ranch and it was raining there. Are you
getting any? Rain that is!

Prop


Hopefully this will work on the first attempt.

Someone on the list wanted photos of Jim Patillo's front spinner
bulkhead. I took some pictures of it today as we removed the prop
from 46JP to put on a new 3 blade prop from Craig Catto, which is his
latest design. Contact Jim for details, but the bulkhead is aluminum
with rubber rolled over the edge to fit the spinner diam.

The prop will end up on my plane, 321TM, but I had the engine off so
Jim offered to "test" it for me. Jim reports it to be very quiet and
smooth, but it will need a slight adjustment to get more RPM. Jim
kept up with another fast Livermore Q200, but was running 400 RPM
less. Catto delivered the prop yesterday at the canard flyin at
Columbia, CA.

Jim, never mind I just looked at the Catto site and got the info... unless they did some new deal like carbon. Looks bitchin and the price does not seem outrageous for the quality of work. Dyin to hear more test results.

Kohler motor for Quic kie

Leon@CStreet <leon@...>
 

While looking for a source of a Honda GX360 motor I ran across a Kohler
motor that is new - to me at least. Seems they now make liquid-cooled V
twins (model #LH685 and EFI LH775) that might make a useable power plant for
a Quickie. Price is right as well.

Does anyone on this list have any experience with this motor, or better yet
actually trying to fit one to a Quickie? I know that there were a few
trying to fit the air-cooled version of the Kohler. Anyone got one of these
to the taxi stage yet?

Anyone looked at converting one of these to dry sump oiling and inverting it
for a higher direct drive prop line?

I do not yet have the schedule on the two seminars, but they will be

Saturday night we'll head over to the 17th Street Bar & Grill for some

Sunday we'll have the hangar open for departing thoughts, goodbyes, and

Re: Drag reduction

Jon Finley <jon@...>
 

Hi Mike,

There was a group of us at OSH several years ago that were privileged to
listen as Gary Hertzler (EZ speed guru) and Bob Farnam went over Bob's
plane. This was very much a critical review of the Q200 airframe with an
eye towards drag reduction and efficiency gain.

IIRC, the straight cut wing tip with position/strobe light was the
number one change that Gary advised. I remember him saying something
about those tips/lights causing as much drag as the rest of the
airplane. There has been a fair amount of discussion since then about
how to best cleanup this area without any clear cut decision (that I am
aware of).

I Just read the current issue of Kitplanes, Column "Wind Tunnel," Title:

Drag Reduction 101, by Barnaby Wainfan.

Toward the end, Barnaby discusses the widely varied results with drag
cleanup. One conclusion he suggests is that drag reduction gives more
benefits to a plane that is already pretty clean.

"As the airplane gets aerodynamically cleaner, the penalty due to
a
given drag wart gets larger, both because it is a larger percentage of
the
total drag of the airplane and because the airplane is going faster in
the
first place. The faster the airplane is flying, the more drag a given
component of the airplane produces." He goes on with the example of
fairing a typ. rotary beacon light in various airplanes.

At Laughlin I saw a lot of exposed marker lights and strobes. You guys
looking for a few more knots might want to read the article and think
about
some fairings.

Subject: [Q-LIST] Drag reduction



I Just read the current issue of Kitplanes, Column "Wind Tunnel," Title:
Drag Reduction 101, by Barnaby Wainfan.

Toward the end, Barnaby discusses the widely varied results with drag
cleanup. One conclusion he suggests is that drag reduction gives more
benefits to a plane that is already pretty clean.

"As the airplane gets aerodynamically cleaner, the penalty due to a
given drag wart gets larger, both because it is a larger percentage of the
total drag of the airplane and because the airplane is going faster in the
first place. The faster the airplane is flying, the more drag a given
component of the airplane produces." He goes on with the example of
fairing a typ. rotary beacon light in various airplanes.

At Laughlin I saw a lot of exposed marker lights and strobes. You guys
looking for a few more knots might want to read the article and think about
some fairings.

(Still a long way to go until I need to worry about fairings)
