Congratulations, Ron! That is a great milestone and it sounds like the
behavior of your plane in the air is a testimony to your care in
re-construction.



I will be curious to hear how your mods on the wheel fairings may affect the
performance as you move forward in your testing. Just a thought on your
loss of rpm's on downwind: Could it be carburetor ice? You said the temp
was 45 degrees and you seemed to get the problem once you passed a certain
altitude. Also, relative humidity is up this time of year in your neck of
the woods. Again, congratulations!

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.

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.

Mold release

swensgoldflyer <swensgoldflyer@...>
 

I assume that someone else has already figured this out but I post it as a point of interest
for any who haven't heard of it.
I have been making some new composite parts for my TriQ. Today as I was preparing some
small complex shapes out of foam for female molds I wanted a quick way to prepare the
surface. It occured to me that I could try using the heat shrink film from a 3M window
insulating kit I had laying around. So I taped the film to the forms, got out the hair dryer and
shrunk it down to a perfect surface. I just pulled the parts out of these and they have a
surface like it was gel-coated. I believe you could use this technique for quite large parts. I
know that some craft stores sell the film in very wide rolls. I will keep experimenting and
report any other results.

Hi folks,
I took the leisure of looking up the miles to Ripon in front of Oshkosh

more than a 1 hopper. Most of them have fairly short distances to
hotels and cafes. I wanted to put this info in front of you in case we
decide to make it a week of Q/Dfly event + Oshkosh. I really liked

Well, today was the day for N91RT to become a full fledged bird, Taxied to

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

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

Re: New location

Bruce Crain
 

Hi folks,
I took the leisure of looking up the miles to Ripon in front of Oshkosh
and also noting the hotels and cafes from several airstrips that Jeff
sent. Some of them have fairly short mileages to Osh while others are
more than a 1 hopper. Most of them have fairly short distances to
hotels and cafes. I wanted to put this info in front of you in case we
decide to make it a week of Q/Dfly event + Oshkosh. I really liked
Beatrice, NE (because everything we need is right there) until I saw
the mileage to Oshkosh (474). But it would be a very do-able 2 hopper
for most Q's and I think Dragonflys.

91RT Update

Ron Triano <rondefly@...>
 

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.

Subject: [Q-LIST] Anyone help with Crazing and sunbumps

Can anyone advise how to deal with local crazing and
sunbumps? I have several areas on the Tri-Q I am restoring
where there are small patches (1-2" dia ) that need local
repair, the main area around them and the underneath glass is
in good condition, and I do not want to strip the whole thing
to repair them. I can find loads on finishing the new
airframe, but cannot see much so far on repairs of this type.
Can someone point me in the right direction please.

Thanks,
Richard.
