Due to enormous demand, I spent the day fixing my website-building tools so
that I could upload the "newer" SuperQuickie Conversion report. You can get
the file here: http://QuickieSource.com. Its a .pdf file that's been
.zipped, but its still big at about 3.4 MB. Enjoy! (Buy a CD while you're

Does anyone have an opinion about the best type/brand of resin to use to
make a fibreglass fuel tank?

Pat,

That's not always true. A well designed monoplane loaded near the aft part
of the CG envelope will often have positive lift on the tail at cruise.
Many
airliners use this technique since, at cruise, the fuselage makes a nose-
up
pitching moment that must be negated with positive lift on the tail.

Yes, I'm well aware of this. My primary instructor taught me this by waiting
until I was fully trimmed S&L at altitude and full throttle. He then slid
his seat all the way aft. I had to re-trim. The net result, a faster ISA.

That being said, what you are describing, where the horizontal stab is
actually making lift, is in effect a tandem wing plane, our beloved Q. :)

Our friend however, is proposing a third wing to add more trim to the
already trimmed (or should I say optimally trimmed) condition.

In a traditional monoplane configuration, the horizontal
stabilizer creates negative lift in order to "trim" the
plane. This is 100% drag.

West was developed to encapsolate wood in high dollar yachts, the wood
carries all the loads the epoxy just keeps it dry and looking good. It just
happened to be strong enough that people started leaving out the fastners in the
boats.

I like Aeropoxy as the heat distortion temp is relativly high.

Re: The difficulty of high-lift devices for tandem wing aircraft (long)

Pat,

Am I reading something out of context with you comments regarding wing
tips?
I know in the past on the Dragonflylist you have argued about the merits
of
wing tip for the Dragonfly.
Wing tips are wing tips, no matter Q or DF.

They will cause drag, but we need them.

I believe the concern here is overall drag (although the subject line says
something different), where as previous DF topics have been on increasing
lift. You choose what you need from your wing tips and design accordingly.
You can design them for lift, and gain some drag. Design them for drag
reduction, and you lose lift.

Re: required equipment

Mike Dwyer <mdwyer@...>
 

You don't need any gyro's for Day or night VFR. But a good attitude gyro can keep you out of trouble. Also it seems a magnetic compass isn't required if an electronic one is available. Otherwise I think the required is Oil P, Oil T, Airspeed, Alt, compass.

are now unwired if not inop.

I assume that this means that you are building the single place Quickie.
Rather than reinvent the wheel take a look at some of the other VW equipped
Quickies and follow what they have done. There was a real nice one featured
in Q-talk "recently". Also take a look at Allan Thayer's carbon rod version
of the LS-1 canard. It can be made from available Graphlite rods - and has
been load tested, but not yet flown. I can E-mail info if needed.

Anyhow, I decided on a 1/4 scale r/c concept model of a tri-foil
design, and the fuselage plug is now made. The finished model will
look like a hybrid between a lancair 320 and a dragonfly. The long
negative stagger biplane main wing config has many advantages over a
single wing when both have horizontal stabilizers to trim them.
Wing tips do nothing but add drag; they contribute nothing to lift.
It would seem to me that the more wings you have, the more wing tips you
have, and the more drag you would have.

In a traditional monoplane configuration, the horizontal stabilizer creates
negative lift in order to "trim" the plane. This is 100% drag.

Thanks guys for all ther input. I am going to use EZ poxy and i will stick with the original plans for trhe spar. I was just looking at a few different alteratives for strenght because i think that i am putting a 1835cc volks on.

Re: Epoxy resin

trevor slater <slaterfloors@...>
 

Gougeon Bros (West System) is a structural epoxy system and quite good at that. The structural properties should be available online at Westsystem.com or you can call tech. I have used quite a bit of the 125/226 & 229 for both vacuum bagging and wet layups. The family of products have cure schedules and performance calcs with very good structural properties at full cure. This stuff in NOT cheap and if Scaled can use it I think that says quite a bit.

What kind of epoxy resin should i use for the glassin. I never got

Do a quick search of this groups archives for info on resin compatabality.
the EZ poxy is the replacement for the original kit supplied resin, but
there may be better resins available now. West System, Aeropoxy, and MGS
have been used by others.
West System is NOT a structural epoxy. Use it for cosmetic (micro

cheaper. (Unfortunately, I learned this only after I spent big money
buying a proportioner, etc.
