I have been tossing the idea of hosting the fly-in around and will do so again. I'll do my home work and get back to you.

The Field of Dreams Fly-In will remain in the middle of the US, maybe MO,
OK, NE, IA, or OK. There truly is a lot of thought that goes into selecting
a location for a fly-in like this.

For the last 3 years (the years I coordinated the fly-in at Sullivan) the
majority of the people have driven to the event. Next are the guys who fly
their TW planes in and there area few guys who will fly-in commercially to a
major airport.

Of course most of us have very busy schedules and it can be hard to get away
for 4-5 days to fully take advantage of our fly-in. For this reason I think
it is worthwhile to move the event around once in a while. Someone could
not justify driving 700 miles to a fly-in, but maybe 400 is doable.

I understand that it is difficult and costly to fly a TW plane from CA to MO
for a weekend fly-in. Typically the overwhelming majority of TW airplanes
come from an adjoining state. Of course there are exceptions, Charlie
Johnson, Jim Patillo, and Dave Dugas come to mind. It would probably make
little or no difference for me or Sam, or Lynn, or Bruce, or Paul if the
fly-in was moved a few hundred miles in any direction. If it moved west a
little I do not think it would seriously impact the guys from flying their
plane to the event. A few hundred miles east would make it further from the
west coast guys, and I do not think that would help increase participation.

Close proximity to a large commercial airport is important for the guys who
will fly in commercially. It is also important to have lodging and things
like that close by the event airport. It should not be inside Class B
airspace and it should have a large enough ramp area and hangar space for
all the airplanes. Sullivan pretty much fits the bill for everything. A
fantastic rural airport that does not charge us anything with 5 hotels
within about 1 mile and maybe a little over a one hour drive from St Louis
Lambert International Airport.

Spud has volunteered to organize the event at Ottawa, KS next year. If
things do not work out with that, I am looking at an airport in SE Nebraska.
On paper the airport looks good, but I have never been there to take a look.
It is not far from Doug or Lynn...either of you guys been to Beatrice, NE
(KBIE)?

Watch for a similar camera Panasonic SV-AV30 Camera Video MP3. Put a
1 gig card in it ($78 at qally world) and put on high resolution. You
get a camera off ebay with accessories for about $150 and can get
some good quality pics and movies.... also plays MP3.

Re: Annual Field of Dreams Fly-In

Sam Kittle
 

Jeff,

Weather is always hard to predict one year ahead of time. The reason this fly-in was moved to the end of September was due to the extreme hot weather in Kansas during the labor day weekend. In the early to mid part of September, Kansas & Missouri are usually affected by the end of the monsoon season coming out of Arizona. Maybe, we could ask Charlie Johnson (One Sky Dog), how to deal with the weather in the Rockies. Charlie usually makes the fly-in from Ogden, UT.

Sam

For all the flying OSD has done to attend just about every tandem wing fly-in
since he got his plane, I think that we should have an event at HIS airport so
he can sit one out and not miss anyhting.

Re: Engine mount question

Thanks Leon. I notice something else about the elevator pushrod geometry, although unrelated. The elevators move about 1/8 to1/4" like aelerons and in the same direction. Maybe this adds to the "aeleron steering" effect.

I ran across an interesting thing that may be related to this while reverse
engineering the Quickie for my CAD drawings. CSA-6 and CSA-7 (the elevator
control arms on the Quickie) do not have the same ratio. I checked 2 sets
of parts and they were both identical, and since the parts were all punched
out by Ken Brock, I'm assuming that all the Quickie kits had the same
different ratio (1/16" or about 5%) elevator links. I don't have any idea
if this was
intended but the result would be that one elevator would deflect just a bit
more than the other - tending to off set "P" factor.

One might be able to do the same thing with the Q-2/200...... but IIRC they
have identical parts right and left due to the center stick.

Thanks , Peter


Re: Engine mount question

Peter Harris <peterjfharris@...>
 

After sifting through all the responses I suppose the best fix is also the easiest. Torque and the P factor are turning the aircraft away from prop rotation. By trimming the elevator or the aelerons we can offset this and the elevator requires only a very small adjustment. By trimming the correct side up we should get a small reduction in drag as well.
On the other hand if we offset the engine any which way we would bring drag into the equation and torque and P factor are offset by a combination of drag and offset thrust. I wonder why Cessna and all do it that way?

For the purpose of designing the engine mount I have heard four different ideas how to allign the engine to offset torque and P factor.
My question is ..Which is best for least drag?
1. AFAIK my Q was set up in the first place with the Revmaster on axis and there was definitely some aeleron offset.
2. When I did the Norton I set up the engine on axis and offset the elevator a very small amount.
3. Some say the engine should be packed with washers for 2 or three degrees of offset to the side and down and no trim.
4. A local guru says the the prop flange should be positioned to intercept the hull axis and the engine mount itself should be offset to one side and down by positioning and packing at the firewall or by offset design of the weldment, and no trim.

I am about ready to start the weldment and would be glad to get some advice which is best. I sure know which is easiest.

David,

The small cameras we bought (Like Jon Finnley's) on ebay
earlier this year had pretty lousy resolution. I tried one
but shitcanned the idea until something better appears. Thats
probably why you haven't seen or heard more about it. I've
got one do you want it?

Regards,
Jim Patillo

Paul on paper that looks like a perfect choice prop for the Jabiru Q-200 and the performance looks good. As I have started a J6 installation do you have any recommendations re the prop? It is interesting to see that some of the hot 0-200 units are using 60x72 and pulling close to 3000rpm at near 180kts .Do you believe you are getting close to 120HP at 3300rpm as claimed by Jabiru?
Thanks,
Peter

Re: Onan prop hub and info request

David J. Gall
 

Scott,

Make sure you get the prop hub that has the big bolt axially down the
center, not the one with two bolts that are cross-drilled through the
crankshaft.

As for improving the Onan installation, the single biggest improvement you
could make would be to do the cooling system properly. The Onan wants to be
cooled from the exhaust valve side which means that to do it right you'd
need to get the cold air to the back side of the engine and have it flow
forward. Just copy the stock Onan cooling shroud (in aluminum or glass) and
get the air flowing in the right direction.... You could have the cooling
outlet(s) on top of the cowl a la Catbird or Adam 500....

JMHO,

David J. Gall

Subject: [Q-LIST] Onan prop hub and info request

I am looking for a propeller hub for my Onan Performer P-224
conversion. It has a straight 1 7/16" shaft with a 3/8" key.
I am also trying to collect any information, pictures,
tricks, to improve the Onan as an aircraft engine. Any help
will be greatly appreciated.
