Re: Air Flow at canard - fuselage intersection LS1

Jim,

That's some good-looking airflow you've got in that wing/fuselage
intersection!

Subject: [Q-LIST] Air Flow at canard - fuselage intersection LS1


All,

A few weeks ago Mark Summers from Livermore (Q200 with GU
canard) did an oil flow test and found the canard - fuselage
intersection on his plane to be real draggy. The flow lines
were all over the place. He installed a vortex generator on
the GU (at the 40% of cord area) about
1 1/2" from the fuselage and about 3" of dimpled tape up the
side of the fuselage on both sides. He claims about a 4 mph
increase in speed as a result. He repeated the flow test and
found the area cleaned up significantly and the air was now
staying attached.

For a long time now we have been told by people like John
Ronz that this area was suspect. Many of us thought of
reworking the area for drag reduction.

As one always looking for speed I did the oil flow test on my Q200
-LS1 canard this weekend and found a totally different
situation. The air flow in that area of my plane stays
attached. Take a look in the photos section to the left
titled Jim Patillo. AS soon as I landed I looked at the flow
and the lines were straight. (Note these pictures were taken
about 10 minutes after landng and were starting to droop
because fo gravity).. It appears the LS1 also cleaned up
that area for air flow. The only thing I noticed was that at
the sparrow strainer, the flow was not attached fully in that
area. Don't know if that is significant or not. Any opinions?

Ron,

That is a pretty interesting oil sump. What is their reason for doing all
that? I would assume that it is to eliminate the drag from the fat kidney
tank hanging below the fuselage.

I would hope that you wouldn't take that on, just to accommodate your
exhaust. It should be the other way around.

Re: Oil Tank

Ron Triano <rondefly@...>
 

Sam, Your assumption is correct, to get rid of the low hanging kidney tank.
I will come up with what kind of tank I have to make when I build it. Don't
think it will be the same shape as they used due to the mounts I have. But
the idea will be the same, it will have the same capacity and not sure but
probably will make it from Carbon Fiber. I am looking into what would help
dispurse the heat best. Will make the bottom part from 3/8 aluminum with
the -8 supply in the center and two returns on each side. Probably will dish
out the bottom to help the oil flow to the return tubes. This will give me
room for the type of exhaust I am installing. I will be using the augmenter
type to help pull the cooling air out, I already have my bottom cowl shaped
for it.

Nead help from all you "old salts" and experts on the q2/q200

fifty101fifty <fifty101fifty@...>
 

I have a few in depth questions on the design of our beloved
aircraft. I am asking them in pure engineering terms so please make
no reference to the constructions plans jargon i.e "level line". OK
here goes…
pertaining to the q2/q200
Does any one know …?

What the angle of incidence is of both the wing and canard?

What the wash out is of both the wing and canard?

Where the CG is in reference to the wings ¼ cord at the root ? (I
understand it will be forward of the leading edge.)

What the distance between the leading and trailing edges of the
canard and wing? (at the root both x "extended cord line" and y
axis )

What the anhedral angle (unloaded) is for the canard and the
dihedral of the wing?

What the washout is of both the canard and wing tips?

And last but not least… does any one know and/or have copies of the
original fuse, wing and virt stab (or airfoil) templates? I can find
everything on the canard, but info on the wing and vertical stab is
scarce.

For a little FYI….im creating the aircraft in cad and will be
running it through my wind tunnel programs. Ill be publishing all
the info on here so if we all pull together on this I think we will
benefit when deciding on power plants and better understanding
climb/glide profiles, L/D max and aerodynamic efficiency mods.
Hope to hear from you all soon.

Green shorts

Bruce Crain
 

Yes the Green shorts are a dapper style addition to the fly in. I
think it fits pretty well with the unusual type of aircraft that we
build and fly. You wouldn't put a Cessna paint scheme on a Quickie
would you? Think outside the box but follow the plans.
Bruce

Thanks for the info guys. I am not sure that I'll make it out to
Emporia but I now do know that there is a very supportive group out
there. Have fun at the event and maybe one day, I too will have the
chance to see the green shorts...
