Re: Prop selection / Sterba props

Peter Harris <peterjfharris@...>
 

Thanks David. I am looking for the best cruise prop match I can afford for a Q-200 powered by Jabiru 3300. I think maybe 60x72 or 58X72. Still taking advice and waiting to hear from Ed Sterba. Hope you can help?

Peter,
I didn't see what prop you were looking for? Is it a Rev or 0-200? I
might be able to help.

Smooth,
My q1 is getting a 60 Hp, Hexadyne Engine, should see it in two
weeks. Putting on a custum made composite Price Aviation Prop, should
have it this week. Intrument panel is not attached to the canopy. Has
Garmin gps and transponder, with xcom760 radio, and a Taskem monitor
(can see pics on Q1 group). Using go kart brakes. Pitch trim will be
based upon a spring cylinder used in Cirrus aircraft. Beefed up rudder
to fuselage connection. Beefed up firewall to support bigger engine.
Hope to fly Next spring to sun n fun or if I don't make it oshcosh in
July. That covers most of my mods... oh, access hatch in back to
access push tubes, and dual cables so rudder and tail wheel are
seperate.

If your just starting a kit... to be done by spring is very
aggressive. I wish you luck. I think it should be a fun machine.

Ron that sounds like a good design using exhaust pressure to pump cooling

Also I am looking at ram air plenum supplied by Jabiru to direct air onto

Lynn and David, Lynn, I hope you don't mind but I have made my plenums

the
plenums which will end up out the bottom center with a 4 into 1 exhaust

David,

Prior to this recent discussion on fuel injections I was planning to buy a
Klaus or Rose electronic ignition for one set of my plugs. I have now
completely changed my focus to a complete Engine Control system with
integrated fuel injection and ignition control. For only a couple hundred
dollars more I have fuel injection along with the electronic ignition I
wanted previously. I have narrowed my search down to 3 brands and have
been
putting together the components list. The fuel injection side of this
looks
to be much more straight forward than I would have thought since I am
currently planning on only making new intake runners and leaving the carb
intact as the backup up fuel source as we spoke. The ignition side will be
electronic on one side only for now coming from the ECU. The other side
will
remain as a mag for redundancy until a good alternative comes along. The
mag
will be controlled by the P lead as it is now with a second ignition
switch
controlling the electronic side. I have updated the design of my
electrical
system to accomadate the need for electrical redundancy. I am currently
thinking through the run-up checklist for proper confirmation that all
redundant systems are operational. Then it's time to get out the check
book.
Downfall is that I will be adding a net 4 pounds after removing one mag.
Guess I won't worry about what to do this winter - not that that has ever
been a problem. Anyway a long ramble on where I'm at on this, but I
welcome
anyone's feedback.



Regarding the mold for the plenums, I guess I had never thought about it.
I
am very pleased with these and would do it exactly the same way again,
except maybe not so many plies so as to make it lighter. They snap on and
fit like a glove and yet allows easy access to the plugs. The other thing
I
might change is maybe improve the transition from the plenums to the
cowling. Needs some sort of boot or something that will slid on and off
easily with the cowl. Maybe sometime when I have them off I can pop a mold
off of them. Did you come out OK with yours?



Lynn





Lynn,

I'm not an electrical guy, but the P-lead would handle the mag side, and I
hadn't thought about the wiring the two spark sources together. You're
much
sharper at this stuff than I.



Another topic:

Have you ever thought of making molds of your engine plenums? I know after
making mine, I would have gladly bought some from a mold.



D




_____




Cool! I'm liking this idea. What are the con's of doing this? Carb is
heavier than throttle body, carb is an expensive throttle body, adapting
of
TPS to carb. I can handle all of those in exchange for redundancy, what
others?



Lynn French



Lynn,

Actually, what I'm saying! But you don't need to shut off the fuel to
the
carb, just go full lean on the mixture lever. That way if you need to
restart you would have the carb bowl full and ready to go. It will work
and
has been done, I just don't have the energy to do it. ;-)

~D~


_____




David,

I think I understand what you are saying......use the carberator as the
throttle body for the fuel injected system and just add a Throttle
Position
Sensor to feed the ECU. Have a seperate fuel shutoff for the carb fuel and
if the Electronic system fails just turn on the fuel to the carb. Ignition
can be backup up in several ways including one of the mags. Is this what
you
are saying you have seen? Seems like it would work.

Thanks

LF



Isn't Clause doing that with his Vari EZ, I heard that somewhere and I
think
it is a good idea also. Probably will do something like that with my Mega
Squirt.



Ron T







I have seen a TPS on a carb using it at a redundant fuel supply or
(system).
And I don't see why one could drive both plugs with electronic ignition
with
the mag still in place and activating the mag incase of failure of the
ECU.

I struggled with all the same questions before selecting the SDS
EFI.

Looking at failure modes of the SDS type EFI system it will probably
be the entire controller unit that fails if ther is a failure.
(remember that it still has dual coil packs driving two sets of plugs
and I think that there would be an extreamly low probability that
both coil packs would fail at the same moment). That is why I felt
that a seperate source of spark on one set of plugs did'nt buy me
much saftey. Last time I checked you needed fire, fuel, air, and
compression to make power. Take any one of them away and you are in
just as much trouble as if they all went away. I also considered a
secondary spark source on one set of plugs, but with a mag you lose
the abaility to advance/retard spark timing. If you are after more
power, then the secondary spark source would have to be electronic.

So yes, an EFI system failure will probably make the engine stop.
And yes, if you lose one mag in a dual mag and carb setup all you
have is reduced performance, and if that makes you sleep better, then
make that choice.

Again, I am not trying to sell a particular setup either way, just
add some insight into my choice. I wanted the increased performance
and was willing to accept what I determined to be the very small
additional EFI "single point" failure risk by using good quality
brand new equipment with an installation that has hundreds of flight
hours on it. We can all tell stories of old cars that broke down.
That's not what I'm putting on my plane. I can also tell stories of
carb ice, bad fuel, worn mags, ...

Remember, there is no such thing as a fail safe airplane, and we will
all live or die with our own choices. For me it's a game of risk
management.

Hope this helps, Tom in Tucson

Re: [Q-200_Engine_Group] Fuel injection anyone with carb?

Peter Harris <peterjfharris@...>
 

Great work Ron. Now that I am starting over with an aircooled engine I have got a lot to learn again. A few years ago when researching air pumps for an exhaust extractor I found a good article by Barnaby Wainfan in Kit planes. Need to flare the end of the exhaust tail pipe inwards to create turbulence which traps surrounding air and carries it out the duct. There are also design details to show how long the tube should be and a double acting extractor as well. If you need it I will look it up.I have a pdf showing details of the Jabiru ram air ducts which are similar to yours. I would be interested to see some performance figures compared to the old fashioned method.
As for the carb/injector hybrid I thought for sure it was my invention. Nothing is new.

Subject: Re: [Q-200_Engine_Group] Fuel injection anyone with carb?



David,

Prior to this recent discussion on fuel injections I was planning to buy a
Klaus or Rose electronic ignition for one set of my plugs. I have now
completely changed my focus to a complete Engine Control system with
integrated fuel injection and ignition control. For only a couple hundred
dollars more I have fuel injection along with the electronic ignition I
wanted previously. I have narrowed my search down to 3 brands and have been
putting together the components list. The fuel injection side of this looks
to be much more straight forward than I would have thought since I am
currently planning on only making new intake runners and leaving the carb
intact as the backup up fuel source as we spoke. The ignition side will be
electronic on one side only for now coming from the ECU. The other side will
remain as a mag for redundancy until a good alternative comes along. The mag
will be controlled by the P lead as it is now with a second ignition switch
controlling the electronic side. I have updated the design of my electrical
system to accomadate the need for electrical redundancy. I am currently
thinking through the run-up checklist for proper confirmation that all
redundant systems are operational. Then it's time to get out the check book.
Downfall is that I will be adding a net 4 pounds after removing one mag.
Guess I won't worry about what to do this winter - not that that has ever
been a problem. Anyway a long ramble on where I'm at on this, but I welcome
anyone's feedback.



Regarding the mold for the plenums, I guess I had never thought about it. I
am very pleased with these and would do it exactly the same way again,
except maybe not so many plies so as to make it lighter. They snap on and
fit like a glove and yet allows easy access to the plugs. The other thing I
might change is maybe improve the transition from the plenums to the
cowling. Needs some sort of boot or something that will slid on and off
easily with the cowl. Maybe sometime when I have them off I can pop a mold
off of them. Did you come out OK with yours?



Lynn





Lynn,

I'm not an electrical guy, but the P-lead would handle the mag side, and I
hadn't thought about the wiring the two spark sources together. You're much
sharper at this stuff than I.



Another topic:

Have you ever thought of making molds of your engine plenums? I know after
making mine, I would have gladly bought some from a mold.



D




_____




Cool! I'm liking this idea. What are the con's of doing this? Carb is
heavier than throttle body, carb is an expensive throttle body, adapting of
TPS to carb. I can handle all of those in exchange for redundancy, what
others?



Lynn French



Lynn,

Actually, what I'm saying! But you don't need to shut off the fuel to the
carb, just go full lean on the mixture lever. That way if you need to
restart you would have the carb bowl full and ready to go. It will work and
has been done, I just don't have the energy to do it. ;-)

~D~


_____




David,

I think I understand what you are saying......use the carberator as the
throttle body for the fuel injected system and just add a Throttle Position
Sensor to feed the ECU. Have a seperate fuel shutoff for the carb fuel and
if the Electronic system fails just turn on the fuel to the carb. Ignition
can be backup up in several ways including one of the mags. Is this what you
are saying you have seen? Seems like it would work.

Thanks

LF



Isn't Clause doing that with his Vari EZ, I heard that somewhere and I think
it is a good idea also. Probably will do something like that with my Mega
Squirt.



Ron T







I have seen a TPS on a carb using it at a redundant fuel supply or (system).
And I don't see why one could drive both plugs with electronic ignition with
the mag still in place and activating the mag incase of failure of the ECU.

I struggled with all the same questions before selecting the SDS
EFI.

Looking at failure modes of the SDS type EFI system it will probably
be the entire controller unit that fails if ther is a failure.
(remember that it still has dual coil packs driving two sets of plugs
and I think that there would be an extreamly low probability that
both coil packs would fail at the same moment). That is why I felt
that a seperate source of spark on one set of plugs did'nt buy me
much saftey. Last time I checked you needed fire, fuel, air, and
compression to make power. Take any one of them away and you are in
just as much trouble as if they all went away. I also considered a
secondary spark source on one set of plugs, but with a mag you lose
the abaility to advance/retard spark timing. If you are after more
power, then the secondary spark source would have to be electronic.

So yes, an EFI system failure will probably make the engine stop.
And yes, if you lose one mag in a dual mag and carb setup all you
have is reduced performance, and if that makes you sleep better, then
make that choice.

Again, I am not trying to sell a particular setup either way, just
add some insight into my choice. I wanted the increased performance
and was willing to accept what I determined to be the very small
additional EFI "single point" failure risk by using good quality
brand new equipment with an installation that has hundreds of flight
hours on it. We can all tell stories of old cars that broke down.
That's not what I'm putting on my plane. I can also tell stories of
carb ice, bad fuel, worn mags, ...

Remember, there is no such thing as a fail safe airplane, and we will
all live or die with our own choices. For me it's a game of risk
management.

Hope this helps, Tom in Tucson

Thought that was the purpose of the Mountain States and Livermore
Fly-In?
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)?

Re: [Q-200_Engine_Group] Fuel injection anyone with carb?

Peter Harris <peterjfharris@...>
 

Ron that sounds like a good design using exhaust pressure to pump cooling air and a real throttle body as backup to fuel injection.I thought I had invented the second item...... dang you will be the first to try it.Have you got pics and details.
Also I am looking at ram air plenum supplied by Jabiru to direct air onto the cyls. Is that your plenum ? Has anyone got performance details for this mod? I was planning to do the conventional and carefully shroud the engine heads to force feed air through the fins. Ram air ducts or a plenum would increase pressure and airspeed through the fins but not necessarily improve heat transfer and cooling?.

Lynn and David, Lynn, I hope you don't mind but I have made my plenums
similar to yours in a few ways around the spark plugs and the area they
cover. I am going ahead and adding the top and bottom deflectors inside the
plenums which will end up out the bottom center with a 4 into 1 exhaust
helping to pull the air through. I also am using one mag with one electronic
ignition, the Mega Squirt and Mega Jolt which I have built. The pickup for
it is already mounted behind my prop hub as shown in the picture. I sure
like the idea of having backup for the injection by leaving the carb which I
will also work on. I have uploaded the latest photos of the above and can
be seen on page 10 link at the bottom of this message. Will add them to the

getting some word that therapy is going well and full range of motion is just
about achieved. Many more weeks of therapy to follow.

Cheers,

Phil & Cherie

Leon this is what I was looking at I have sent e-mail to Sales department
and am awaiting a responce

Will let you all know if this is a goose chase

=========================================
This is the one (LCR 407 SG/K (KR) or SG/W) I've kind of decided is the most
viable option. They don't build the motors themselves and somewhere on one
of my inactive hard drives I have the contact info they gave me for their
source. I'd already have one hung on the front of my Quickie but they are
kind of pricey due to the current exchange rate between the Euro and the
US$.

There is another individual on this group that is trying to kind of reverse
engineer this motor for production in North America............At least I
think it's the same powerplant. If they manage to get it done, and for the
price range that was quotes for a target I'll be making humming noises :-)

Re: Engine options for my Q1

Kerri & Mark <ksm@...>
 

Hi Peter
The first thing is is this a practical power plant , eg light weight and
reliable all the things a engine needs to be
I have seen a company on the net selling a single rotar electric start duel
ignition approx 75Hp max and I think from memory 84lb.
others I have been talking to here in NZ are pointing me to 503 as a newbie
to the Quickie and her temprement going with tryed and true makes sence but
I like the pros of the rotary half confersion.
can you point out any cons...
The Q1 I have has flown approx 20 hours in the log and all parts are looking
good so far...

Hi Team

Have been reading newsletters like mad since receiving them the other
week
and very interesting reading...
I now have two sets of build instructions and a box of templets and some
triangle jigs. all sorts of bits and pieces
Three questions
1 I have a second Q1 canopy that has minor marks on it , was told that
it
came in contact with fence wire can it be repaired...
2 single rotar rotary engine any oen that has been there can I talk to a
bit
more, I like the low weight and high Hp
3 I pulling ZK-JGZ apart for a good look at all moving parts, I have
some
parts for a reflexor system and think while it is in bits this would be
the
time to be it as when she is assembled I don't see me being that keen to
ground her again.

Mark Fitzgerald
Very pleased with Q1 ZK-JGZ (old reg)

the same direction. Maybe this adds to the "aeleron steering" effect.
