Today, Sandy and I are departing Ft. Collins, CO, planning to RON at
Wendover, UT. Looks like a nice day for mountain flying.

Friday, we'll finish up the westward portion of out trip at Santa
Rosa, CA for a family reunion, in Sonoma, on Saturday. Monday, we're
planning on heading out - perhaps spending a few nights at Reno and
driving up to Tahoe - but plans are fluid. FYI - my cell phone is 618-
967-0016

Another benchmark, this Friday will be the 20th annivessary of my Q-
200's first flight.

Having a nice trip, wish you were here.

Keith,

I too want to say thanks for hosting the flyin. Between graduations
Friday PM and the kids calling to say they were hit by a deer, our
time there was limited. Seeing you Quickie up close made the whole
effort worth it for me. I Borrowed that hi tech digital camera from
work, just wish I could work it. I set it up to record Sam's
presentation but it must have a built in timer as it shut off after
18 minutes. I did get about 70% of your inflight that I can send
either DVD's or MP4 files if anyone is interested. There is a few
good shots of your flight and the Q1 on the ground. Bits of Sam's
pieces and things I found interesting on the DF, Pulsar etc as well
as 311DM departing. If I can get the MP4 small enough, I will post it
to the files section. If anyone wants a 31 minute DVD with about 6
minutes of Q1 and a lot of broken or shaky bits, email me your
address direct and I will send them off snail mail. With Luck, I will
be flying in next year and be able to hold the camera still

Thanks again,

and your Q Bird is treating you right. Looks like you and Jerry's

Why do you always send me scrambling for the books??! :)


David J. Gall



David;

With the offset thrust line (I assume a belt reduction with the 2/1 ratio
rather than planetary) is is possable that whirl mode resonance might also
be a problem and contribute to prop flutter even if properly "clocked"? I
have seen visable resonance of this type with some ultralight aircraft.

you describe for their fixed-pitch two-blade prop.

Hi Ron,

Afraid I don't check messages here very often so missed your call
for
help.

Yes, I am in the middle of moving to an airpark (Yippee!!!) near
Albuquerque, NM so my site is down.

As you have already found, you won't find much help out there for
prop
setup on the Soob. It can be very frustrating but remember that
the
fun is typically in the journey and not just the destination.

I am running a 55" 3-blade Warp Drive that had the blades profiled
for
high-rpm use by Gary Hunter - remember, I am direct-drive.
Currently,
the blades are set at 14 degrees. I do not think this prop is very
efficient but that is purely a gut feeling - I have no data to
back it
up. However; it is very adjustable and that is the reason that I'm
using it.

Do to my low thrust line, 55" was the maximum that I could get away
with. Depending on your reduction, you might be able to use a
slightly longer prop. In any case, you will likely be limited to
less
than 60".

With my Soob, an in-flight adjustable prop would be the cat's meow.
They are a bit too spendy for my checkbook though.

Not terribly helpful... Sorry, wish I had a solid answer for you.
