You just made me feel better, I'm about to make my first in my Q1. My 2 nd taxi was a lot like your fight, about 15 to 20 min into the taxi I was about to pull it off the gound for about a foot when the engin started to miss. Like you i parked it and will work on it next week. I'am verry glad you got back on the ground O K.

Well, today was the day for N91RT to become a full fledged bird, Taxied to
runway 34, applied full power and with my knees knocking made it up to 80
indicated, gently pulled back on the stick and it actually lifted off, Was a
good feeling to see it fly straight for real instead of just short ground
effect dances. I left it at 80 to 85 and was climbing at about 3 to 400' PM,
Temps were all intact. Turned X-wind and all was still ok, I made about a 10
degree turn. Did that again for downwind and kept climbing while turning my
downwind into a large circle over the airport, got up to 7000' and started
to level off, as I did that the engine started to loose RPMs, I fiddled with
the mixture and could not maintain 2450RPM. Brought the mixture to Idle
cutoff for a second to see it really would cut the engine, so pushed it back
in while positioning to the downwind leg. The engine never did quit but just
would not maintain high RPM. Set up final at 75 and it felt good and I had
good response to control inputs. Never did get under 70 till I quit looking
at flair out. I did not make a greaser landing but it was a 3 point with a
bounce. Short rollout and back to the hanger. Thank God. The landing was not
a problem at all but I still need to relax on takeoff. Maybe I was just too
nervous for the first time. Next Saturday I will disconnect the fuel line
from the carb and check the flow, clean the filter and anything else that
needs cleaning, maybe my shorts. The temp was about 45 deg. So the density
alt must have been around 5600', the airport is 4700. The main thing I am
very pleased about is it flies straight, The stick is super sensitive and I
have to get used to that to not over control. Maybe next weekend it will be
smoother. Feels good working on the Q200 again.

Revmaster Engines

tml1x <tml1x@...>
 

Hi there Quickie Builders and Flyers,

Wow, there are a lot of you on this group. Let me introduce myself.
First of all, I don't own a Quickie, but am considering the purchase
of a complete kit from someone locally in the near future. I wasn't
to keen on the Q2 design for a number of years. Obviously, that has
changed.....I guess it just took me some getting used to.

I do own a Fisher Horizon 1 that is 40% complete. Right now, I am
planning to put a Revmaster R2100D engine in it. For those of you who
are into the composite designs, I'll just say the Horizon is similar
to an Aeronca Champ. The high wing design has a little more drag than
the Quickies and it is considerably slower (cruise 85 - 90 MPH) The
higher RPMs needed to develop enough HP may not work as well as the
A65 Continental. Therefore, I may end up mounting an A65 to the
Fisher Firewall and using the Revmaster for a Quickie project.

I was always under the impression that the Q designs could be ordered
with Revmaster engines. If that is true, I could use the one I have
in the Q2 my neighbor has for sale.

Before I can do anything with this Revmaster engine though, I need to
change the crankshaft over to a forged crank and put a Rev-Flo carb on
it.

I see many of you have put Continental and Lycoming engines in. That
leads me to think there may be Revmaster parts out there for sale. If
there are, please drop me an e mail.

Sorta in a quandry here guys. Gonna keep moving forward with gluing
wood and stringing control cables while I'm waiting for a clear
direction to go with this engine dilema.

Thanks in advance.

Tad,



That is a critical difference between the DF and the Q's. I think that the
DF wing is bolted on, so to maintain the structural integrity of that
mounting approach you cannot bond it to the fuselage. The Q's on the other
hand are designed to be bonded to the fuselage so fairings do not adversely
affect the structural characteristics, in fact the broader fairing may
actually improve the characteristics. This said, most of the canard failures
I have seen in Q occur at the fuselage-wing junction on one side or the
other.

Re: New location

Keith Welsh <kfly@...>
 

Hi Tad and all:

Been reading with much interest the ideas forthcoming for the 07 FOD event.

Regarding Mattoon, IL it too, probably, meets all the criteria mentioned, uncontrolled, crossing rwys (150 x 6500 and 100 x 5800), restaurant on the field, hotels 1 mile away, hospital across road, too many restaurants, major interstate -1 mile away, no B or C airspace anywhere near, flat IL prairie terrain, lots of ramp. about 100 mi from St Louis or a -2 hr drive.

If a weekend prior to OSH, as Crain mentioned, is of much interest MTO is about 3 hrs South, more or less. That could generate interest from that standpoint. I've seen lots of Q guys at OSH who don't make the flyins. That plan could lasso some of them to a FOD flyin.

I agree that for a weekend only thing it might be a little to far East for many Westerners however, an OSH connection could alter that.

As for Tad's question is there an annual event in MTO. Yes, several. A wings weekend in July, Natl. Luscomb flyin in Aug., CAP weekend youth event etc... For Q's...no. Issues developed with the new airport manager. Perhaps that could change with a FOD event. Am I doing Casey again? Maybe, the runway is due to be resurfaced in 07. Will not want to do one there again before that. For now I am on a wait and see basis. And perhaps Hoskins may want to have us back down to SIU. Hi Sam!

Anyway..some more mud for the pie.

Tad,
Mine is a conventional gear Q. You bring up a good point. I am not an aeronautical engineer. I do not know how to determine the effect of the faring on the bending of the canard during landing. Does anyone on the Q-list have an opinion about this. See photos: http://ph.groups.yahoo.com/group/Q-Performance/photos/browse/970a

When I put my DF together and had it inspected, There was a concern that I had sealed around the canard and lost the 1/8th in gap between the fuselage and canard as it would change the charachteristics of the canard and the abilities to absorb shock in landing. Thought it may make it more ridgid and probable to break. Mine is a tri gear so passed but noted that had it been a tail wheel not sure it would have.

Tad,

One of the many differences between the Q and DF is that with the Q, the
wing and canard are permanently bonded to the fuselage... no gap. The
root faring as shown shouldn't cause much (if any) structural concern.

Re: Completion - of a different kind

Rene Robertson <q2robertson@...>
 

Hi Jim,
I have the 917D version, a kit that was put out by "Elite Enterprise". Tim at "Classic Sport Automobiles" bought the molds about 2 years ago and started the new company. The laser 917 from Elite came in 4 versions with the 917D being the latest version and the same as the "Classic Sport Automobiles" car. The major difference between the two companies is the chassis. My chassis is basically a Carmen Ghia chassis with a few performance mods. The "Classic Sport Automobile" chassis is tube welded and can handle a V10.
I haven't opened the car up yet since I'm just getting used to driving it, but it sure lives up to its specs for appearance and curb appeal.
BTW We will definitely be coming to LVK 2007 if you and Bob are still planning one. We really enjoyed the event 2 years ago and hope it will continue.
