Doug,
Put "Eudora" in your web search field, it will find it. (Check your spelling)
My preference is Mozilla Thunderbird as a better replacement for MS Outlook. It is free. If you don't like it dump it.

Van Vleet Cowling Mod in Q-Talk 119

David Richardson
 

Hi Guys,

I'm curious about the modification Richard made to his Turbo Q2 and
just why he is seeing such an improvement. It looks simple enough to
do and with my Tri-Q2, opening up that area would make removing the
lower cowling much easier. I wouldn't mind getting rid of the cowl
flap either.

Is the idea sound enough to be worth hacking up my cowling?

Thanks,

Dave Richardson

Phil,

Every angle of attack coresponds to a paticular airspeed in a steady state
calm atmosphere.

The L/D of your airplane does not change due to weight. If you have 10 to 1
and are loaded heavier then the sink speed increases and the forward speed
increases. So if you run trial glides at minimun loading and gross weight
you
have two speeds that are your best L/D speeds. They are not that far apart
any
spam can POH has the numbers so you can go to your local FBO and read a few
in the book stor area and get a feel for the speed differences due to load.
A
Cessna 152 is 65 mph if I recall right. My Dragonfly and most other
Dragonflies the best L/D is at 100 mph. It is very close to Vy climbout
speed on most
planes.

How far you are going to get depends a lot on which way the wind is blowing
and wheather your in a high pressure or low pressure area. If your trying to

make an airport upwind in a high pressure area you are not going to go very
far even if you have a good L/D and you need to fly faster than best L/D.
Conversly if you are flying downwind to the airport in a low pressure area
you
want to fly slower than best L/D like at minimum sink speed. Those are the 2

extreems in actual conditions you will experiance everything in between. A
L/D
meter is not a substitute for glider experiance when the engine qiuts or the

prop flys off.

Re: Dust Collection

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

Jay,



I use a pretty decent respirator ($20-30) with replaceable filters anytime I
am messing with micro and there is a chance that I will be breathing the
dust...mixing or sanding. If I am sanding a lot of fiberglass I will use
that same respirator or at least a dust mask. I am extra cautious anytime I
even think about sanding CF. Keep the respirator in a sealed zip lock bag
when not in use.



I think it is a good idea to keep some air flowing anytime you are sanding.
If you do not exhaust the dust everything, I mean EVERYTHING, in you shop
will be covered in fiberglass dust. Inside your toolbox....places that you
never thought dust could get inside. A wood shop dust collector might work
ok, but for it to really do any good it will have to be outside because the
particle size of the fiberglass dust is so small it will just blown through
the collection bag. Maybe just an old furnace blower fan (I have one of
these that I am going to use the next time I do any serious sanding) with a
furnace filter attached. I saw someone use a make shift filter using a
regular house box fan with a furnace filter taped to it that they just sat
near the area that they were sanding to pull the dust away from them.



I also developed an allergic reaction to fiberglass dust when I was sanding
on my (Dragonfly) fiberglass landing gear. I was doing a lot of sanding
with an aggressive belt sander and thought that it would be a good idea to
wear some of those mechanics gloves. The fiberglass dust got inside the
gloves and with all the sweating that I was doing it caused some problems.
It probably took a couple hours to show up, but my hands broke out in a
serious rash that lasted about 1 month.



Take the time to protect yourself!!



Jeff

Re: Dust Collection

Jay I have developed an allergy because I was careless with dust 5 years
ago. When sanding the stuff got under sweaty nails and around the lenses of
my specs. My nails came off and eyes badly swollen . Its nasty stuff and
even now I need all the protection I can get. Eyes still swell .

Clothing gets contaminated with the dust also. Take care.

Hi Jay,

The couple of times that I've finished a Q, I used a broom and dustpan.
That said, I'm sure I've breathed enough glass/epoxy dust to last a
lifetime.

I've seen people put a breathing system in place (basically just a simple
fresh air mask) that I thought was a good idea. A full evacuation system
would be cool. However; this strikes me as one of those things where you can
spend the next two years and x dollars installing when you could/should be
working on your plane. So, guess my tip is to use something to minimize the
amount of junk you breath but keep it cheap/simple/quick.

Oh, the other advantage of some sort of simple evacuation system would not
being constantly covered in dust. Not too many things better than sweating
like a pig while covered in white goo. If it isn't a quarter inch thick in
your nose or all over the inside of your shirt and pants, it's formed a nice
paste with your sweat and is covering your face and arms..... Yum - love
that finish work....

The cellphone prohibition is an FCC matter. The reason is that cell
phones normally have short range and will communicate with one or
several nearby cell towers. From an airplane, your cell phone can
easily be in contact with dozens or more towers. So your one cell

area. To keep channel usage reasonable, these high altitude
transmissions are prohibited. You will probably find at our lower
altitudes you cell phone will work just fine, though still in
violation of FCC rules. (When your phone is detected on too many

restrict usage to on-the-ground. In an emergency, of course, do what
