Re: [Dragonflylist] Congratulations on a successful flyin and I need a little help here (Grin!)

Hey Spud,
You did a great job with the fly in! It was top notch! You're the
best my brotha'!

On a side note; I tried to find a spot in the "Midwest" with and
airport and hotel/motel combined but haven't come up with anything yet.
It would be great to find a facility that had both hotel and diner
combined. Sedona, AZ has an airport with cottages on top of a mesa.
Bullhead City, AZ airport had a water taxi that took you right across
the river to the hotels etc. but that changed when they re-arranged the
taxi way. Livermore, CA had a hotel that was within walking distance
on the field.
It would be great to find something like that although I don't know if
it would bring any more Q's and D'flys.
Flight Guide said that something was coming up that helped pilots find
these kind of fields in the future. It will be on line I think.

I will keep my eyes open for something if it shows up.

Thanks
Bruce Crain

Jim,

If I recall correctly, the Q1 datum is 14.4" forward of the forward
face of the firewall.

To download the POH from the Yahoo! Q-List files section, you must
have a Yahoo! groups ID and be logged in. Browse to
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Q-LIST/files/ and click on
the "Quickie POH.pdf" link that is shown. Assuming you have Adobe
Reader installed (or another pdf reader), the file will open and you
can save it to your computer.

Spud Spornitz <spudspornitz@...>
 

Hi Justin,

The event did go very well (a little windy), the newbie's and oldies
learned a bunch, we laughed a lot (cried some too!), saw some fun flying
(That 540 Cozy IV was a rocket!!), and the camaraderie was off the
scale, but the folks from AZ area and the west coast were very much
missed.

Super thanks for the report as it sounds like you guys have been busy
building airplanes!!!! Which is the most important part.

We had two attending Dragonfly's, Letempt and Bourque and the balance
was Q-1's, Q-2's & Q-200's (with a Cozy IV and Velocity to pick for a
"Tie" for Biggest Deviation of Plans award). There will be a full report
in the up-coming editions of both newsletters.

I must admit, I'm a little perplexed why we don't more Q's & DF's and
their pilots attending (particularly Dragonfly's) from the AZ area and
west coast. Maybe its flying over the mountains, maybe some are
uncomfortable with engine combinations (VW, etc), maybe its to close to
Oshkosh, maybe it timing, maybe it just isn't important enough (it
certainly is plenty of work!), maybe people just have to busy a schedule
to carve out that time, who knows for sure?????

Tell me Justin (and you trusty band of AZ DF's), also Richard in Chino,
Hale, Patillo, Farnham and etc. What's a good weekend in Sep/Oct 2007
that would work for you guys, Sept 7-9th or Sep 14-16th or Sep 21-23rd
or Oct 5-7th. Give me some feed back guys and we'll try to scheduled
around what works for you. We want you here, you are very much part of
the group!!!

And now after this years event, I really need you guy's help in a big
way, I now have this bet with Jimmy Masal on the amount of attending
tandem wing aircraft, Q's & DF's in 2007 (no Longs, Cozy or Velocity's
don't count). I need 20 or more Q's & DF's flying/attending (with a
minimum of 5 DF's). Yes, yes, yes, I have opened my big mouth again!!!!!
So guys, you tell me what its going to take?? (Within reason!!!) to get
you and your planes to Kansas in September/October 2007. All bribes will
be entertained (Grin!!) In 1993 we had 27 or 28 tandems at the event,
why not 20 in 2007. I don't see why not, with a little organization we
can pull this off (And I win! <Happy Dance>). So I ask you Q and DF
drivers out there, tell me what it going to take to get you here in
2007!!!!!!

Important note: No Jimmy, this isn't cheating, you never said I couldn't
ask for help!!!! (Snicker, snicker!!!)

Very Best Regards,

Spud Spornitz
Olathe, Kansas

P.S. Yes, we'll play Poker in 2007, we will even have an "official
dealer" for the event. We gave away $150 ($100,$30 & $20) in poker this
year, but can't remember the names right now. But that was fun!!!

Subject: [Dragonflylist] Congratulations on a successful flyin.



Hey Spudly, sounds like the swarming went well, but I am saddened to
hear of a Q driver going down in MO., on the way to the flyin. My
condolences to his family.

Just to keep you up to date, while you guys were having all that fun I
happened to be in the LA area and had a chance to get together with 4
other dragonfly drivers. Between the 4 of us still flying we have a
total of 4650 hrs on our planes. Two of these aircraft have
Continental engines with one of the fellows planning on installing an
O-200. I got a chance to see his new motor mount and cowl design.
The last fellow is still flying with a VW but is on his third case and
still accumulating hours.

A couple of weeks ago I had a chance to fly along side of Allen
Peterson in his Dragonfly. Allen has installed an O-200 much the same
as mine. He just got back from a trip to MN. He has installed a
Navaid Devices wing leveler coupled to his new 296 Garmin. He also
installed an altitude hold unit by Altrac, between the two it amounts
to a full autopilot. He said the trip was very good and was not a
problem to fly all day. Much more comfortable than his old Beachcraft
Musketeer. Allen said that he got into some serious rain while
enroute but it was a non event even with the GU canard. Oh, he has
VG's installed at 50% cord.

Like I said, I had the opportunity to fly alongside for a while and
let me tell you it was great fun to fly with another DF again.
Especially with his "auto pilot" turned on. No altitude changes or
course changes while flying formation, it was very easy to be stable
next to his plane, MaryJo even thought it was fun. He was at 140 kts
and I was fooling around and let him get ahead. I had to go to 150
kts to catch up. We flew for about 20 miles like that before we
started to do some sight seeing. All in all it was great fun. MaryJo
didn't have her camera along this trip or we would have some air to
air shots, maybe next time.

Lurking here on the list it sounds like there are a few that still
have no clue what the Dragonfly is all about. In short, it's the best
bang for the buck flying machine going, even with the expensive O-200
for an engine. If you don't believe that just price some of the
ultralights. While they have their place, for the same $$ you can fly
at 140 kts on 5 gal/hr. The DF does require a PPL, or better ticket.

For those that have decided and are building, keep at it, it is a very
fun, safe and useful airplane.

Justin Mace
Tucson, AZ
Dragonfly MK2/O-200 with more than 100 hrs in type.

P.S. Jeff, I also looked at the ACS catalog on page 26 and find that
Dart is not listed as the owners of the Dragonfly, this appears to be
something that needs corrected in the 07 catalog.

Hi Jon,
I bought my original prop from Jeff at Props Inc. back in 1999. Since then
he refinished it twice for me and has done excellent work. The first time
was just a refinish and the second time earlier this year was a repitch and
shortening. The original prop length was 56" by 46" pitch. I ended up with
54" by 45" pitch. This prop ended up cracking at the hub a couple of months
later, but this was not Jeff's fault.
Anyways the work he does is of very high quality and Jeff is a super nice
guy, very easy to deal with and very reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

I was trying to bring up my power band so mu cruise rpm would be 3200-3400 rpm. It worked, but I lost top end speed since the engine was turning close to 4000 rpm on a low pass at 180 MPH and I could no longer get those 200 MPH low passes. I've since gone back to a 54" diam and 48" pitch prop - best of both worlds.

Re: coughlin brake mount

wesisberg <wes@...>
 

That does help, Sam, esp. mounting instructions.

Not sure how I can better describe my concern in words. Let's say the
mount is an uppercase "L" where the bottom part of the L is clamping
to the rotor which is spinning at 5,000 RPM (90mph) with a run-out of
.03". Then the top of the L will be wagging at the same speed and, if
the ratio top:bottom is 2:1, an amplitude of .06". However, the slide
only permits movement along the top axis (i.e., L jumping up and down,
not teetering side-to-side). Nor am I sure the thing will loosen or
wear visibly before breaking, so I'd at least have some notice during
preflight.

Agreed that I should avoid the issue by removing run-out, but the
rotor is new and that's as close as I could get; maybe I should get
finer shims.

Thanks -
Wes

Wes, I'm not clear on what you are saying here. Is it the fact that the
disc is not flat that is causing concern, or that it is off-center
of the
center point of the axle?

If the disc is not flat, yes it should be shimmed as much as flat as you
can. However, the slide feature of the mount makes that condition a lot
more tolerable than the other mounts. That's why I like it. 0.030"
shouldn't be a problem.

Here is how I got the best alignment between the mount and the wheel:

Install everything, but don't yet drill the brake mounting holes
into the
wheel pant.

Now, pull the brake handle and lock the caliper onto the disk. This
will
cause the caliper to align itself with the wheel.

Next, stuff the void between the brake mounting plate and the wheel pant
with flox. Voila! Perfect alignment. Don't drill the holes until
you have
verified everything is to your satisfaction.

I just uploaded another photo to my Q-List folder. This link may work:
http://ph.groups.yahoo.com/group/Q-LIST/photos/browse/b877

You want to make sure the through hole in the threaded rod gives enough
clearance and the threaded rod doesn't need to be too long. Maybe 1 ΒΌ"?

Does this help?

I have the Coughlin brake mount parts (thanks Jon and Sam and ...) but
noticed (late) that it permits only movement parallel to the disk
rotor. My rotor has some run-out (down to about .03" after
reshimming, still noticable) which it seems to me would cause chafing
on the slide if not significant vibration where the mount attaches to
the wheelpant. By contrast, my mount (see qtalk 1, Peay) permits
about 5 degrees of twist, enough to tolerate a bit of run-out.

So for those who've used the Coughlin mounts, do you have any run-out
that they have to tolerate, and how many landings have you used them?

John FWIW I did a bit of a price survey last year and decided on a prop by
Ed Sterba for the Jabiru. I got it oversize and have been trimming it and
charting the results, but now waiting for the engine to loosen up. It is a
good prop and was recommended by the others for about $400 probably the
price is hard to beat. I had to rebalance it the ballast he fitted was 20gm
too much, and a bit of attention to the foil at one end, otherwise I am
happy with it. It has leading edge polyurethane protection.

Hi all,

Anyone have any first hand experience with the Props Inc. propeller
manufacturer that you would mind sharing?

I would like to try a fixed pitch wood prop on my Soob and Props, Inc. seems
to have the most reasonable price but would like to verify the quality of
their product.

If anyone happens to have a spare prop in the 56" x 44" range and wouldn't
mind letting me try it (my expense), please let me know.

Thanks,

Jon Finley

Hello Ron:

There is a P Carb on eBay (110037949352) and he only wants about a million
bucks for the thing. This kinda means they are expensive. Ouch.

Okay - $2100.00 isn't quite a million bucks.
