Re: New central TW locations

Letempt, Jeffrey MR <jeffrey.letempt@...>
 

David,



o One of KLHX's 2 runways is only 60' wide in fair condition and the
field elevation is 4238'. $3.95 self service 100LL is nothing to write home
about.



o KALS only has one runway and the field elevation is 7539'!!! I have
never had my Dragonfly above 6,500' and even then I thought I was going to
get a nose bleed :<)



o Both of KEIK's 2 runways (one of which is 2250' long and in poor
condition) are narrow and the field elevation is 5130'. It is also under
the Denver Class B airspace.



None of these 3 airports meet the criteria that I proposed.



o KLBL was on one of my list, but after talking with a pilot from my EAA
Chapter that frequents this airport he told me that it is REALLY windy there
ALL the time.



Another consideration for me is remotely hosting the fly-in. I have kind of
been honchoing this discussion and will be more than willing to remotely
organize the fly-in under the right circumstances. One of those right
circumstances is that it should not be more than about 400 miles from my
home. I would not mind flying out once or twice to set things up, but if it
is farther than that I think it is a bit too much for me to do. Spud has
commented that if it is within 90 miles of his home in Olathe, KS that he
will organize (or assist as needed) the 2007 FOD fly-in.



I have a list of 23 potential airports that might work well for the fly-in
that are within about 400 miles of my home. I have not personally talked to
anyone at any of these airports; I just looked at the facilities on the
AirNav and AOPA web sites. I have been to several of these airports (KMDH,
KGBG, KMTO, and KMVN). I applied the selection criteria and all of these
airports meet the criteria (except one of KMVN's runways is only 3149' long
- but their facilities are PERFECT for a fly-in).

No one else has stood up and said they would organize the event next year.
If someone wants to take on organizing the event that is GREAT, just let me
know and I will help out as much as I can. I am willing to do what I can
within reason. I am just offering to do what I can to make sure the event
continues to take place. The general consensus back in 2003 when I
organized the event at Sullivan, MO was if someone goes to the trouble of
organizing the event that people would show up (FOD....build it and they
will come).



Lebanon, KS is the geographic center of the lower 48 States. Edgar Springs,
MO (just 15 miles from my home) is the population center of the USA. I have
no idea where the geographic center of the tandem wingers is located. From
looking at http://www.frappr.com/tandemwings/map
<http://www.frappr.com/tandemwings/map> I would say there are more TW
planes in the Midwest and Southeast, but this is far from scientific. I
think it would be great if we had East, West, and Central TW fly-ins, that
way almost everyone would have an opportunity to experience a TW fly-in.



Thanks for the input!!



Jeff

Rough River, Kentucky TW annual fly-in locations....

David <quickieflying@...>
 

Doug, and Spud,
While Rough River,Kentucky is a great little airport it doesn't meet
all of the criteria we set forth. Runway lengths, hanger, no parking
etc. etc. Also Kentucky has more accommodating airports then this
one. I think we need to keep looking and also it needs to be further
west, this place is much to far east. I think we should look at
Colorado somewhere, it is a more central location...

They
usually have 75+ aircraft and seem to have no problems. It's a

Everything is walking distance. We could have it their a week or

I could take some pics of the Norfolk layout when i get back down there over the weekend. It's a good layout with an abandoned terminal building that we could maybe use for mettings and such.
There are three large hangers to choose from for overnight storage if we can talk the administrator into it.

Re: Anyone help with Crazing and sunbumps

Richard Thomson
 

Thats OK Jim, I do have a fairly good understanding of bonded structures
from years of being in metal rotor blade manufacture. The old tap test was
the inspectors main weapon in the detect a delam stakes. Thankfully to date
the main structure seems sound except for several bumps mainly on the main
wing areas about mid span, quite a ways from the centre brace areas. There
is some underfiller peeling at the wing fairing area, but when picked off
the glass surface taps a treat. I hope I do not find too much like Mike had
with the paint peeling, but to date the bumps I've picked at seem fairly
localised.
It has been outside in all weathers for a few years, with just a cover, and
my first thoughts were it would be scrap, but as I have surveyed it further
it has been a pleasant surprise, and so far the main structure seems to be
quite sound, I think it had a full paint job about 7 years ago, which may be
why it is still reasonable.
I intend to remove the tailcone and pick at that first, and practice
localised repairs and refinishing. then attack the main wing afterwards.

Thanks to everyone for all the replies to this thread.

about a 10

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

bounce. Short rollout and back to the hanger. Thank God. The

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

thing I am


very pleased about is it flies straight, The stick is super

have to get used to that to not over control. Maybe next weekend

it will be

Re: Anyone help with Crazing and sunbumps

Jim Patillo
 

Richard,

Are you refering to delaminations? Have you taken a coin and tapped
the area? Sun bumps don't ring a bell. Was this plane sitting in
outside in the sun for a long time? Where are these "bumps located
on the plane"? Is it the main or canard? Which canard do you have?

There's a straight forward and simple fix if the delamination is the
size of a silver dollar or smaller and I can explain how to do that
fix. Larger delams need to be addressed differently and I can
explain that too. Your problem is repairable but you need to be sure
of whats going on between teh skin and foam.

Many times when sun beats down on a canard or wing for a prolonged
time areas delaminate. The problem is the top part fo the foam gets
brittle, the skin breaks loose and creates a dust barrier between
the skin and foam......not good!

Steve,

I really wish that were the case, as this engine only has 3 hours TT.

Here is the reply I received from Revmaster Aviation on Engine Serial #2343.

"According to the files the crankshaft serial number is 2509 this indicates that this is a cast crankshaft and should be replaced and that there is no indication in the file that the unit has been changed. It should have a duel ignition system, the type of magneto equipped should be D 2000 Bendix. We advise that the Posa carburetor should be replaced with a newer Revflow injector carburetor unit. If you have anymore questions regarding this engine please contact us at anytime via this email address revavia@... or by phone 1-760-244-3074.

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 (LOT) 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.
