That 3d model I have on my website...

olderprograms <groups@...>
 

Dave was asking me where I got that 3d model of a Q2 on my website
logo at www.quickheads.com I actually made that myself.

My background is in dvd authoring and design and my plan is to create
a set of construction DVD's as I build my plane. I created the 3D
model in a computer animation package called 3D Studio Max and I
think I can export it as a DXF file if anyone is interested. I have
had trouble in the past importing DXF files into the program though
so we'll see.

I thought it would be a good visual aid when I was talking about what
I was doing in the videos. Let me now what you think.

I still have plenty of room on the website for more bloggers, so if
you're interested in following Sam's advice about setting up a
Quickie construction blog you can sign up on the
http://www.quickheads.com homepage, or if you want to see some of the
video/web design/DVD work I've done you can check out my non-quickie
related site at http://www.dvdme.com

Thanks for asking,
Dan Yager


FTP space available again

Leon - C <leon@...>
 

Finally got around to getting my FTP space set up again - after about a
year:-( You can blame this on the drunk that side-lined me for a few
months. Got more time than I know what to do with..............

Anyway, the last time I offered the space nothing bad happened so I'm going
to do it again. So if you have any files that you would like to park there
for the other members of the Q community to use please feel free to do so.
Just please be sure that they are Q related and of possible interest to
others.

To access the site just use ftp://qguy:Quickie@.../ in your
browser address bar. If that doesn't work for you go to
ftp://ftp02.powweb.com and log in using the user name of qguy and password
Quickie (case sensitive).

I'll start adding my files soon

To add your own or copy them just "drag and drop"

Tri-Q-200 N200LM - The First 150 Hours
Scott "Doc" Horowitz, EAA Chapter 1000 Det 1 (NASA Houston JSC)

Originally published February 1994

Well, here I am at Norm's computer in sunny (NOT!) California on
another Tri Q-200 adventure. On 10 March 1992, I was honored to go
down in EAA Chapter 1000 history as the first to fly a homebuilt
completed in this great chapter. I would like to tell you a little
about the Love/Hate relation I have with N200LM (sometimes I love to
hate it) and reflect on the first 150 hours we've had together (not
including maintenance hours of course).

For those of you not familiar with N200LM let me describe her to
you. N200LM started life as a Q-200 which became a Q-200RG (believe
it or not!) and ended up as a Tri Q-200. With all these changes it
took 2500 hours to build and about 350 hours to rebuild after flight
0 (but that's another story). Power is provided by a Continental O-
200 which has been modified by Dick Demars to use C-85 pistons
boosting the power to about 115HP. The engine was ported and
balanced and runs verrry smooooth. She cruises at 150 mph indicated
at 50% power and full out on the deck can do 200 mph with the engine
turning 3100RPM. Equipment includes: standard altitude, airspeed,
attitude, heading "T" with an Escort II (Nav/Com), Terra
Transponder, Apollo 612C Loran, King KX99, and most importantly, a
Sony Discman.

I have learned a lot from N200LM and I'd like to share with you some
of my experiences. Every flight seems to reveal something new about
aeronautics or aviating to me. Shortly after the first flight I
found out that I would be PCS'ing to Houston, Texas and thus had
only a few months to fly off my forty hours and prepare for the long
haul eastward. Flight 1 went very well and was uneventful. The
profile included: Takeoff, full power climb to 5,000 AGL, gentle
turns, approach to stall, straight-in low approach, and straight-in
full stop. The flight lasted 16 minutes and I remained within
gliding distance of the field at all times (I love my airplane). The
engine ran a little hot for my liking (oil temp 220 degrees) so the
cowling exhaust was opened a little for the next flight. Flight 2
was again uneventful with a gradual opening of the flight envelope
but flight 3 was a little more exciting. At 175 mph indicated there
was a large "snap" sound and the aircraft did a -2G pitchover (I
hate my airplane). After I reduced power and leveled off, I radioed
[Ray] Narco [Narleski] that I had seen enough today, and I would be
performing a controllability check and flying a straight-in full
stop. Landing was uneventful and Narco asked me if the aircraft had
pitched down. I was curious as to how he knew, and he replied: "When
airplanes pitch up unexpectedly it doesn't scare the pilot nearly as
much as when they pitch down unexpectedly". Narco is wise beyond his
years, I thought. Well, the culprit was an elevator sparrow strainer
[feel device on the Tri-Q-200 trailing edge] that had departed the
aircraft. I also found that the design of the elevators had all of
the shear loads being reacted through the foam between the
fiberglass skin and aluminum torque tube! The elevators were
overhauled and flight test continued. The rest of flight test was
uneventful (I love my airplane) and at times even boring (5 hours of
flying like a U-control model on a 25 nm string can be pretty
monotonous).

With all restrictions flown off it was time to fly from the cozy
nest of Fox Airfield. So I convinced my wife Lisa that it would be a
lot of fun to fly off to Vegas for the weekend in our great little
airplane. Lisa is very brave, I thought (after all she married me)
and so I wanted to make this a very enjoyable flight for her. The
weather was clear and fairly calm and we were off on our first
adventure in N200LM (I love my airplane, and Lisa). We arrived in at
North Las Vegas airport and I was setup for a beautiful greased-on-
landing when suddenly there was a loud bang and the aircraft slammed
onto the runway and bounced back into the air (do not try to save
this in a Q-200, GO AROUND!) So I went around and found out from
tower that I had left my right main wheel pant on the runway but it
looked like I still had three wheels. Where did that six inch lip at
the beginning of the runway come from?? I did have a blown right
tire (with a bent rim) and landed 2,000 feet down the runway
slightly off to the left of centerline to offset the added drag on
the right. The landing was rather noisy after touchdown but there
was adequate brake to stay on the runway (I hate my airplane). A
call to Norm put the EAA emergency runwayside service network into
action and within a few hours Norm and Jack Hakes showed up in
Jack's RV-6 with a spare wheel and tire. Local EAAers at North Las
Vegas helped me patch things back together and soon N200LM was
signed off for one time ferry flight back to Fox for repairs (EAA,
what a super bunch of folks!). Lisa had just a few misgivings about
all of this and rented a car and drove home (I couldn't blame her).
The flight home was uneventful and repairs were quickly
accomplished. There was just enough time to get everything done and
prepare for the flight to Houston.

Lisa dropped me off at Fox Field for the last time and, with Chester
(the cat) crying in the car, watched me zoom off to the East hoping
to see me at our first stop in Phoenix. The trip was uneventful for
me (I didn't have to listen to the cat), and Lisa was relieved to
see me and N200LM in one piece at Deer Valley Airport in Phoenix.
The rest of the flight, DVT-ELP-FST-T20 (Clover Field, Texas) went
very well, with a code one aircraft [no maintenance faults...a rare
state of affairs when one flies McAir products such as the F-4 and F-
15] at the destination (I love my airplane). Several months went by
and I flew N200LM mostly locally and life was good. Then came
hurricane Andrew heading straight for Houston. I told Lisa we needed
to get out of town and get N200LM out of the tin hangar at Clover,
so reluctantly she climbed in and off we went to San Antonio. During
climbout at 400 feet AGL the engine began to wind down, I leveled
off, mixture full rich, open carb heat, reduce throttle setting, and
the engine roared back to life (I hate my airplane). I suspected
carb icing and she purred like a kitten all the way to San Antonio.
After Andrew turned North and missed Houston we were off to Houston
again me in N200LM and Lisa in my friend's Grumman Tiger!

I tried for weeks to duplicate the loss of power with no success, so
I wrote it off as carburetor icing. After several months Lisa
regained her confidence (me too) in N200LM and we actually went on
several enjoyable weekend trips together. At the first annual I
noted two cylinders with low compression (72/80) and so I sent the
engine off to Dick Demars to have a look see (I hate my airplane) .
The rings had somehow become unseated which was attributed to the
use of semi-synthetic oil in the cermachrome cylinders (who would
have guessed?!) I finished my annual and N200LM was purring like a
kitten (I love my airplane). I broke in the new rings and then flew
from Houston to Fort Stockton, CO to see Dick Demars and have him
bless my airplane. N200LM flew flawlessly and Dick inspected the
engine and found everything to be reasonable with only a slightly
degraded compression check (79/80, 80/80, 80/80, 79/80). N200LM was
flying so well I continued on to Provo, Utah that night and enjoyed
a spectacular flight over the Rocky Mountains. I then flew around
the West Coast and returned to Houston with a code one aircraft (I
love my airplane). It was on this trip that I realized what a great
single seat cross-country airplane I had. Lisa and I enjoyed several
more trips around the Houston area including a weekend in New
Orleans for our 10th anniversary. Work got busy and flying N200LM
became a once every other week affair. My goal was to fly about
100hrs a year so I decided to take N200LM on my next TDY.

I was scheduled to go to NASA-Ames at Moffett Field (San Jose, CA)
for six weeks and couldn't bear the thought of leaving N200LM behind
so long so I decided to take her with me (I love my airplane). I set
off from Houston and flew to El Paso, stopping at NASA Ops in El
Paso to spend the night. On the way I lost my tachometer (bad 90
degree drive and cable), and my main radio receiver (thank goodness
for my KX-99!). Next day, I blasted off (almost) from El Paso and at
60 kts the engine quit running! I told tower I had an engine failure
and proceeded to push it off the runway so a Southwest 737 could
land (I hate my airplane). Fuel was pouring out the tank vent and
the gascolator was bone dry! What the hey!?! My fuel system is a
perfect siphon if the header tank is completely full! So this was
the problem I couldn't duplicate. I won't go into all the technical
stuff now but even though I was pissed at my airplane I was relieved
to finally determine the problem. I burned some fuel out of the
header and after regrouping was off to California!

I arrived in the Antelope Valley and wound up desperately picking my
way through broken cloud decks. I knew that if I could only find the
world famous "Flying Snake Ranch" I could transform the airplane I
hated back into the airplane I loved. There it is, the "Flying Snake
Ranch", but look at that teeny-tiny runway and I have an 80 mph
touchdown speed! But sometimes N200LM surprises even me, and we land
and are slowed by mid-field. Bob greets us at the hangar and we push
N200LM into homebuilder's heaven. With Bob's help we soon have the
engine off (required to perform such major maintenance as cleaning
the oil screen, timing mags, and replacing tach cables) and the tach
cable removed. A quick trip to Pep Boys Aviation Supply Center and
other local airplane parts places and we begin to transform N200LM
into the airplane I love. New Tach Cable, rebuild 90 degree tach
drive (oh, they put the washers in wrong), new header tank fuel
vent, repair broken wire to radio, reweld exhaust system crankcase
breather fitting (when did that break?!), new cowling
washers.....VOILA!!! The airplane I love. Brave Norm agrees to come
along for the Functional Check Flight so off to California City we
go. Norm checks out all of the "interesting" flight characteristics
of the Tri Q-200 and we land at Cal City and fill-er-up. We head
back to Rosamond and obtain another data point: full gross weight
landing on a teeny-tiny runway. Over the fence at 95mph and smooth
touchdown with the classic Tri Q smooth (NOT!) derotation. Stopped
before the restaurant (I love my airplane).

So here I am waiting for the weather to clear, enjoying Bob and
Norm's hospitality reminiscing about the time I've had with N200LM.
The Q-200 and all derivatives are definitely a point design: go fast
on a little gas. N200LM does this very well, but at the expense of a
few other "minor" airplane luxuries. Handling qualities in most
regimes is Level II at best and Level III in some regimes like the
unimportant takeoff and landing. Creature comforts are OK for a
single place, but not for two. Systems reliability and
maintainability are very lacking even though I went through great
pains to improve these areas during construction of N200LM. I've
learned a lot, and can't wait to incorporate all this learning into
my next airplane (I wonder if I can learn to love to hate another?)


Re: Revmaster Mag drop (plug swap)

Dave <quickieflying@...>
 

Have you tried switching the right mags plugs to the left to see if
it drops on the other side? If so you have a bad plug, if it doesn't
you have a bad lead.
Good luck



Hi all.

I have been having a problem with an excessive mag drop on my 75hp
Revmaster with auto-spark plug conversion. I have the Bendix dual
mag fitted. When I check the mags at around 1500rpm there barely
seems to be a noticeable drop on the right mag about 50rpm or so.
But when check the left mag there seems to be a 300-400rpm drop.
The
engine seems to run ok but definetely seems rougher when on the
left
mag. When selected to both, the engine runs as normal on all
plugs.
I have checked and replaced all plugs and they are nearly always a
nice golden brown colour. I have had the mag checked and timed and
the points checked and cleaned. I have checked the harness and all
is ok. I have now hit a dead end and don't know where to go from
here. Has anyone come across this before? My engine is new with
only
8 hours of running on it.
Also does anybody have any photos I could have of Q2 Revmaster
baffling as the baffling that came with my aircraft is totally
inadequate. I have seen photos of other aircraft Revmaster
baffling
installations but it would be really helpfullyif I could see some
pics of Q2 baffling.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Q2(00) Parts for Sale

Phil Christiansen <rxforfun51@...>
 

Hi Jerry,

I'm interested in buying a number of your Q parts.
I'd like to purchase the following if they're still
available:

Fuel system and Cables. I'm also interested in your
prop spinner and starter if they would be available
for sale too. Looks like you had someone interested
in your fuel tank gauge with float. If not, I'd like
to buy that as well. Could you also tell me what size
Revflow carb you have? I assume it's a 34mm? Let me
know how many of the above parts are still available
and what the cost of the prop spinner and starter
might be if they're for sale too?

Can contact me offline if you wish at
rxforfun51@...

Regards,
Phil Christiansen

BTW the new templates have female patterns back to 25% chord for checking

Hi all. My name is Simon Wilson from the United Kingdom. I bought a Q2, G-BVYT (ex N3797S) just over 2 years ago now as a project to refit. It was an aircraft that had already flown but hadn't flown for about 4 years when I bought it. It has taken me a bit longer than expected to get to the stage where it is ready to fly and even then I still have a few minor issues to sort out. Anyway thought I would introduce myself, should have done it 2 years ago really.
Happy New Year!
Regards, Simon

Leon - I would like to have your product on the QBA web site somehow in some form. Maybe a link to your email/web page or something after you figure out how much you want to charge. Just let me know what you think.

Subject: [Q-LIST] Quickie "plans" - templates


I've just finished plotting the first set of my CAD drawn templates for the Quickie (Q-1) and they should be in the mail to another Q-list member, for review to make sure that I haven't made any serious mistakes, today. I'm confidant enough that they are ready for market that I am letting the lists know that they are available.

I haven't yet decided on just how to market them so I'm open for suggestions.

I have 12 "D" size sheets (24"x36") that have every template, part, and jig drawing, from the firewall aft, that I have been able to find that QAC published with the original kit and the LS-1 upgrade. These sheets include all of the drawings in the construction manual as well so you no longer have to print the PDF files from David's CD with a large format printer. Just make a copy in standard letter size for shop use.

I had considered adding a set of templates that are off-set for those that like to hot-wire to a larger size and then sand to the final dimensions but I have not done this - yet. If anyone really wants a set like this, ask and I might provide.

I also have drawings of all of the welded and machined parts supplied with the original kits - in actual size - so there is no reason that any partially completed kit or damaged aircraft can't be finished or repaired.

Also if anyone knows of a source of reasonably priced software that will plot both raster and vector at the same time on a Hp 650C plotter using either WIN 98 or XP please let me know. I don't use AutoCAD much and the standard Windows drivers just don't work with mixed formula CAD. The Hp would be a bit quicker than my other plotter.

Lynn,
The cowl I just finished weighed a little less then 9 pounds. Each one
may vary slightly but should be less than 9 pounds.
