canard reduces the bowing on the canard that causes the negative camber
situation until speed reduces. This explains why all of my ground loops
have been at 25 or less MPH.

Putting in positive camber will reduce the possibility of negative camber
at low speed; however, any camber is going to have an impact on
controllability. Putting in positive camber means that non-neutral camber
is present at high speed, with neutral camber at low speeds. What I would
NOT like would be to have the controllability problem transferred to a
higher speed regime. At 25MPH or less, a ground loop is non-destructive. I
would worry at higher speeds.

Now that I think I have a handle on my problem, I will take appropriate
action, while leaving the camber alone.

Re: Arlington

Jim Patillo
 

James,

Sorry fo the delay in responding. My mom passed away in Ft. Smith AR
last week so we've been back there. Unfortunately the guys from LVK
will not be attending Arlington this year as it conflicts with our
annual event in Grass Valley, CA.

P.S. Tim Iverson; I went by your mon's house last week but it was so
hot I didn't get out! About 94 with 98% humidity. My brother John is
building an apartment complex and mini storage just up the hill toward
Interstate 40.

Once again I remember why I don't live in Arkansas or Oklahoma any
more.

Thanks Dawie. I am peterjfharris@.... I have also used a NACA inlet and have good cooling but you will probably have an advantage by venting up wards and I am curious to see it.
Safe flying,

Hi All,

Yesterday (27/6) at 10:30 South African time my Subaru EA-82 powered
Quickie
(ZU-BSS) finally turned from a weird looking go-cart into an aircraft.
Flight took place at Wonderboom airport North of Pretoria, South Africa.
Oil
and water temperatures are marginal and we won't get away with it in
summer.
The extremely capable test pilot (22000 hrs) did a few orbits overhead,
did
one touch-and-go and one full stop landing.

Regards,

Dawie

Re: Posa carbs

Peter Harris <peterjfharris@...>
 

Richard,
My Revmaster made 2850rpm static with a Cowley 56x49pitch prop. (but I am not sure if it had the 75HP larger valves).Yours should go faster. Have you confirmed no restriction in fuel flow to the carb? How does it breakdown,/ missfire? (ignition) backfire?(lean),hunting? (too rich) or just level out at 2650?(linkage held up)

Hello Fellas,

It's me again, I've been trying to still get static rpm in my q-2.
I've check the compression #1 has 160 #2 has 172 #3 has 140 #4 has
170. I have set the valves to .006. I have re checked the timing its
right on. I have checked the prop its a cowley 45p 56 dia. I've had
a local gentleman that has only run rev master's to come to look at
it he has told me that it has not got a big enough carb(34 mm). The
engine is a 21oo d rev master. So I went to sonex today and the guy
there said I had to big of a carb and that on the aero V engines
which are 80 cc bigger there running a 32 mm carb and mine is a 34
mm carb. The engine will run up to 2650 rpm which is 3/4 throttle
and after that she falls on her face.Its like its either getting to
much or not enough fuel. I'm at a loss here and dont want start
speculating and buying parts that I dont need! The other suggestion
from sonex was to limit the throttle at 2650, I dont know if that
would be a good Idea or not, I surely don't want to find out in the
air that it wasn't a good idea! I have another carb coming to try
hopefully it will be here today or tommorow but At this point I'm
thinking its not the carb. I'm in need of some good advice for the
engine. I'm surely not going to take advice from someone who is more
interested in my wallet then what is actually going on. PLEASE HELP!!

Re: Gas Prices

I think you wrong there, its the US futures market thats driving up gas
prices, here in Australia we are paying $1.15 a litre or $4.94 a gallon and
80% of all crude oil consumed in Australia comes from Australia. taxes on
fuel here are 48% of the price at the pump Arthur Boyd

be careful, 'cause you might have to tie it down to the tarmac on a windy day

Don't over complicate this, guys. Reverse aileron steering is nothing more
than adverse yaw amplified by the angle of attack of a taildragger.
