Damian the new price is AUD 18500, 2 year warranty . I bought a factory rebuilt engine rated at zero hours for AUD15500,1 year warranty.
Their warranty policy is very liberal, they will cover beyond the expressed period.Conversion 1AUD=0.75USD approx.
Much cheaper than buying an 0-200 here.

Peter,

I am using a Sensenich 54 X 72 Model W54SK-72. This is a cruise prop
and I am pleased with it. The folks at Sensenich were quite helpful
and guaranteed the prop to 100 RPM of the target RPM (3300). I am sure
you are aware that different props with the same pitch will not perform
the same due to the blade design. Sensenich had the prop to me in
three weeks which was a plus in my case.

I think that the pumped O-200 would be rated at 115-125 HP range and I
would guess that the Jabiru is rated fairly. The short answer is that
I think that very few engines of any kind will furnish the rated HP
IMHO. That said the only way to know is to dyno the engine which I have
not done.

Now for the speed, if you use the calculation (IAS) + (.02 x MSL /
1000) to figure True Airspeed at 172 kts and 8000' (where I fly most of
the time) the result is 199.5 kts. I will just stick by the 150 kts
IAS for cruise and 172kts full throttle. Not to shabby on under 5.5
USG/HR.

Re: Prop selection / Sterba props

Peter Harris <peterjfharris@...>
 

Leon the one that I have seen locally is using a prop dulicating machine , fairly primitive with belts and wheels it whirrs away all day, but the result looks OK. It is not his core business and I would rather deal with a dedicated reputed prop maker. The hardest part after choosing a source is to decide diam and pitch for the application. Seems to be a dark art with smoke and mirrors . So far I like David Gall's spreadsheet best.

Ok, I've got a question. Are these prop makers really making their props by
hand? Or are they making masters and using the standard prop duplicating
machines to make both ends of the customer prop?

If they are doing the later - and it would be much quicker - then there
should be no real difference in balance between a "hand built" prop and a
CNC cut one. The only advantages I can see is that the CNC prop would be a
more faithful rendition of the mathematical model (this may or may not make
for a better prop) and the CAD file takes up a whole lot less room than a
physical master.

Peter,

How about a Culver prop? They are located about 5 miles from my house in
Rolla, MO and I have visited their facility a couple times. The process
they use to carve a prop is to use one of their 1 blade prop templates.
They have what seems like several hundred single blade templates hanging on
the wall. They have a machine that duplicates their template one blade at a
time. They duplicate one blade, then rotate the new prop 180 degrees and
duplicate the other blade using the same template. I am not sure how the
original template was made, but at least both blades will be the same on
your new prop. They have a short video clip of their machine on their web
site at www.culverprops.com

I think they make really nice props and their prices are reasonable.

Jeff

Q fuselage

Bruce Crain
 

Sammy,
I've been having thoughts of maybe slicing the middle out of a Q200 fuselage and slimming it down to a 1 seater. Didn't Lancair do that with their Lancair IV and add a jet engine?

With the Continental 0200 engine pumped up front the aircraft would surely be faster. Much less front plate drag. The hard part would be incorporating the tail section and fairing the top and bottom smoothly.

Should be easy to find a kit with a fuselage. Might have to pick up a couple of carbon fiber spares from "Down Under". But then again when it is finished the rest may have moved on already.

Just thinking out loud. Maybe in a few years when I retire!

Re: Annual Field of Dreams Fly-In

French <LJFrench@...>
 

Jeff,
I have been there several times. Brand new terminal building, two nice runways (slight hump in the one - kind of like Ottawa), staffed on weekends (a big plus when coming home from Sullivan on Sunday's), T hangers usually available, hotels close. I don't know about a big hanger that could house several aircraft. I suppose the town is around 13,000 population and about 45 miles from Lincoln, NE. Commercial flights to Lincoln are sometimes a little pricy, but Omaha has better fares and only 60 more miles away or so.
It just so happens that BIE is direct in line between my hometown airport and Sullivan.

Oh........... and if you show up to the fly-in after everyone else has left for supper and there is no ride (not that it ever happens to me), you can just walk up the street a ways to the Super 8. However, I think they have 2 courtesy cars.

LF

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)?



Suggestions are greatly appreciated!!!

Re: Engine mount question

----- Original Message -----
From: "Peter Harris" <peterjfharris@...>
: Re: [Q-LIST] Engine mount question


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 ailerons 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.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++
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.

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.

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?

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.

Regards,
Sam

Paul,

I understand.....I just had someone contact me from the east coast saying
the event needs to be pushed back a couple weeks due to weather. No firm
plans yet, but the fly-in will likely move west a couple hundred miles next
year.
Suggestions are greatly appreciated!!!

Jeff

Jeff,

I have been trying to get back to the fly-in for years but the weather is late September and early October is a factor. I for one would like to see a return to the Labor Day weekend. There are others is the same boat I am sure. Here in the Rockies the weather sets in early. Just a thought.

Re: Prop selection / Sterba props

Thanks Lyn I guess the CNC props are better balanced but just about double the price.

My 60X70 is a Sterba. They are hand carved and he only does a static balance
on them. Probably not a bad buy for the money though. If money was no issue
I would probably go for a CNC cut prop.

Re: Wheel cam guys.

Patrick Panzera <panzera@...>
 

Jim, All I could picture in my mind when I read your 1st post was this mini
cam pointed, not out the canopy like most of us would do, but back at the
pilot, who has this sh*t eaten grin on is face. The Pilot goes home and
plays it back and doesn't think he looks so good, so he blames it on the
resolution of the mini camera. But I thought you might get offended by that,
so I wrote you about the pilot skill thing.

For some reason, I'm still picturing that damn grin. :)
Would this happen to be the one???

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.

...and MAYBE we could actually get to see Bob's project!

Try about 1500 miles for the west coast guys.

Re: Engine mount question

Peter Harris <peterjfharris@...>
 

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.

: Re: [Q-LIST] Engine mount question


> 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 ailerons 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.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++
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.
