Hi Larry

I just need to touch some of the areas,large,and small. Not sure of
the brand of paint, and primer the builder used, is there a
universal brand?
Unfortunatly, no. However if you use one of the "name brand" paints and
follow the manufactures recomendations for proper surface prep you should
have few problems. The problem with patching a Q is that unlike an
automobile there are few naturual breaks. Most often it's recomeded to
paint full "panels" at one time because if the paint systems aren't
compatable you need to cover the old with a "sealer" and there is no way to
blend this coat. If the paint systems are compatable (by test) then you can
do spot repairs and blend so it looks good. A quick test for compatabality
is to put some of the reducer from the new paint on a rag and lay it on the
area to be repaired (taper sanded to the base) for an hour or so. If the
original paint is still firm and unwrinkled you are probably safe. If you
can dig soft paint out with a finger nail you might have problems without a
sealer.

Another question, can I use the quarter turn fastners to fasten at
the front to rear fuselage shells?
You can. But it wouldn't be a very good idea, as the tail just might come
loose! Most aren't designed or intended for structural uses.

A battery powered screwdriver makes quick work of the task of unbolting the
recommended fasteners. Very few Q owners seem to make regular use of the
traileraing option anyway.

Hi Larry

Yes the plane has 95 hours and signed off, it's at that finished,
signed off,and just needs a little more work to make it better stage.

Hi Kevin,

We just got back into town and read the great news! Congratulations
on your first flight! You've moved into a small select group that can
never seem to get the smile off their faces. Now that she's (the Q)
not a "Hangar Queen" anymore you will find yourself enjoying this
next phase a whole lot more. After all this time you get to enjoy the
benefits of your labor. Again right on dude! Welcome to the club. We
look forward to seeing your pretty new bird.

P.S. Sounds like the take off and landing were both butt puckering
events but you'll get over it.

Best Wishes in your test phase

Gentlemen and Ladies,
I was fortunate enough to fly my Tri Q 200 today. Yesterday was the
29th
anniversary of the date I earned my pilot certificate. I wanted to
fly then,
but the weather was bad. So 29 plus 1. :>)
First I want to thank God. God gives us dreams, not to torment us,
but to
inspire us to do great things. For that I am thankful.
Next I need to thank my lovely bride of 25 years, Brenda. She too
let me
have my dream, and I know she will enjoy flying with me to see all
of you.
The thanks from here on are many. In no order of importance, because
everyone has helpful.
Paul Fisher for being my Q200 mentor.
Terry Crouch for being my tech counselor and mentor. Most likely
the best in
the country.
My neighbor Wayne DeSotel for ALL the help when ever I asked. He is
not on
the list, but has built a Volks Plane, and a Piel Emeraude. The
later of
which he let me fly for the last 60 hrs getting the "rust" off.
Bernie Nitz for being my flight advisor. Also to his wife Chris.
They both
made two trips up to help be build my new wing. Along with Paul,
Terry,
Terry Sherman, Brian White, Wayne DeSotel.
To the airmen that let me fly their "babies". Paul Fisher, Lynn
French,
Earnest Martin, Jerry Marstall, Jerry Kennedy, Bruce Crain, sure
hope I
didn't forget anyone. If I did please don't be offended. It's been
a big
day!!!
To all the people that have talked with he on the phone for hours.
You know
who you are.
Finally to all the rest of my friends that I have met through this
association. Everyone has the same goal in mind. Build the best
airplane
flying and do it safely. I hope the rest of the test phase goes as
well.
Flight test report below.

10 March 06
Conducted first flight test.
Take off was interesting. I over controlled the rudder pedals to
the point
of a roll POI. I had no idea that the rudder would be that
sensitive. Broke
ground, between 75 and 80 MPH. I was loaded at 43.65¹¹ for CG.
Pitch control
was good at first, but I was putting in too much rudder to the
point of
rolling the plane. While that was happening, I got sidetracked and
lost my
attention to pitch. Which resulted in the plane loosing altitude
and the
right main touched down. Back into the air gently, no bounce, and I
finally
got control when I got off the rudder pedals. Climb out at 120 MPH.
Temps
good. Relaxed a bit and continued to climb. Control was good. I
had 50# in
the right seat in order to get the CG back a bit. That must have
lessened
the left roll tendency, as I had no adverse roll. Climb to 3500 ft
at 120
MPH. Temps good. Oil 175° F, CGT 390°F, Oil P 40 PSI.
Maneuvers Pitch, yaw, roll at 135 to 140MPH good
Slowed to 85 MPH same maneuvers good.
Climb to 5000ft. Check carb heat, 100 RPM drop, OK
Ease back on throttle and maintain altitude to 80 mph. Did not go
for pitch
buck on this flight. Used 80 MPH as my do not go below speed.
My flight advisor suggested that I relax at this altitude and enjoy
a bit of
the day. Good advise, I did. Great feeling, but now I had to land.
Set up for a practice landing with a decent from 5000ft to 4200ft.
Entered
downwind in the practice run at 120. Base at 110 to 115 a bit fast.
Final at
100. Tried to set up for a 500 FPM decent during this practice.
Back up to 130 MPH for a slow decent to pattern altitude. Reached
what
looked to be at pattern altitude, but the altimeter still read 3000
ft.
Field elevation is 1200 ft. After some conversation with the ground
crew I
got the pressure reading. I had set the altimeter 1000 ft too high.
Put in
the correct pressure, flew the pattern, final looked perfect. I was
happy.
Ground radio said things looked GOOD. Then the bottom fell out at
about 3 to
5 ft. Landed hard. No bounce rolled out straight. It was far from
perfect,
but I did it, warts and all.

Larry,
All you have to do is sign an affadavit that the plane was amature built and
the FAA will issue an Experimental Airworthiness Certificate. The Q types
have already been approved as meeting the 51% amature built kit.

Hi Gang,

After years of assuming I would not be able to fly, ( artificial leg ),
I talked with a local EAA member and he set me up to start taking
lessons.

Then I discovered Trade-A -Plane, found this Q1 for sale, I thought this
is the way to go!

Next, I found this site just in time to attend " Field of Dreams" last
year and everyone sounded very helpful both in person, and online.

Kept on Trade-A-Plane until I found Joe Tygart's ad for n672cp, a Q2
with a Revmaster turbo. I purchased n672cp with a bent tailwheel spring.
After trying to fix it, ( after 3 trips to Fayettville NC. ), I gave up
and cut it at the joint between the forward and aft fuselage shells in
order to make it trailerable, and brought it home on a trailer. The Q2
came with a set of plans but only up to chapt. 14, and the chapt.
needed the most is 15, ( thank you David Gall), after making it
trailable, I still need to make the "Gall Wheel Alignment", and the La
Rue brake mod.

Question for the group, I will need to repaint my plane when finished
and the original builder, felt uncomfortable after taxi testing, decided
to give it to a charity and kept the builders logs.

What is the best primer, and paint to use?

Any Q2's near here that I, or my current flight instructor can
get a ride in?

my empty weight with the global was 318 pounds. I was flying at a gross 620 pounds
bucking speed was 62 miles per hour and cruise was 120 mph and fuel burn was 1 to 1.5 an hour. my reason for changing from global was my need for speed. i read about Tom Solans quickie and decided that adding 40 more pounds to my quickie was not that bad of an idea.

Hi SAM " Look at a Hexatron P-60" It weighs 93# an Onan 84#,but you have a 60HPH ,3GPH engine
which will make a real hot Rod out of a Q-1. This engine is already been fitted for the Q-1.Performance wise it should match out the Q-2 performance wise. Lansair

Hey Kevin,

That is FANTASTIC! Praise God! It really does fly! Susie and I are
so proud of you. We're proud of your success. We're proud of your
perceverance and acheiving your dream. We're also proud of your
flight planning and sticking to that plan. Bet the mixture of
emotions and concerns felt that day made for one of the most intense
flights since your first solo. Don't feel bad about the take-off
and landing. We've all been there. It will smooth out. It will
become even more fun. Take what you've learned and refine your
procedures. Bruce's comment about keeping your nose below the
horizon is right on the money. This ain't a Cessna. I'm finding
keeping the other end of the runway just in sight over the nose
after roundout helps me keep the wings level and not get too slow.
I'm sure with time you'll find out what works best for you.

Congratulations on a job well done.

Dave & Susie Richardson
