Hey Doug!
Sammy looks great in Red on the newsletter! I had to put on my

Merry Christmas Big D!

Flight test

Kevin Boddicker <trumanst@...>
 

17 Dec 06
Flight today was to increase the weight another 50#. Full fuel, 150#
PAX seat. CG at 45.06". Range 42 to 47.2" Wind was 330 at 8. TO from
35 was extended, but rotation was very smooth. Should have gotten up
more speed on the ground. After liftoff the elevator was mushy. Nosed
it over and picked up more speed. Climb out at 110 MPH was about 500
FPM. Climb to 3000' temps were fine. Oil temp did not get above 175°F
the whole flight. Trimmed up for cruise, and flew around for 1.5
hours. Made an approach and low pass at two other airports in my test
flight area. I will do pitch bucks and climbs the next flight. Today
was for fun. Remember "Education and Recreation". Landing on 35 was a
touch and go first, then full stop. After burning off fifty+ pounds
of fuel, both touchdowns were very smooth. It lands better heavier
than it does nearly empty. The nose is not as heavy on landing. Very
FUN day.
The last flight I felt like I was not ready to do maneuvers, as I did
not have a good feel for the extra weight. After todays flight I will
be ready for pitch bucks, and other tests.

Re: Revmaster R-3000 cost

Panzera <panzera@...>
 

Pat,
How much is Rev getting for the R-3000?
$10k

What do you think of it so far?
I think it could make a huge difference in the LSA industry if Joe would
ever bring it to market fully. Could you imagine the RV-12 or even Cessna's
LSA with this engine in it rather than the Rotax? Other than that, the
engineering is top-notch. Not as pretty as the Jab, but not nearly as
expensive either.

Is the story on the CH601
installation done already and or what issue?
Yes and no.

Several issues back we did an exhaustive article on the engine,
http://www.ContactMagazine.com/backissu.html and the most recent issue has
an article on the acquisition of the 601.

It was only yesterday that I put the two physically together. My plans are
to forage ahead and have the first flying R-3000. I'll be keeping a log on
our website and keep our readers updated with the progress.

Trevor,

The J3300 is lighter than a VW Revmaster but CG of the six is further
forward. I am getting 170KTS at 3000 rpm and still running in a tight engine
in my Q Dragger. Fuel consumption goes up above 2800rpm as the Bing is set
very rich at WOT. So rich it is costing me some power. I am thinking about a
throttle body but need more info. I would like to be able to lean off at
cruise. Paul Spackman is getting 184KTS IAS at 8000 ft, engine fully run in
and Bing carb.

Peter

Hi Peter, thanks for your response. Is yours one of the flying Tri-QJ-
abaru's ? What sort of performance are we seing out of these birds?
I was interested to hear that you had to put balast in the tail. It is
a lighter engine than the 0200 is it not? Was that also a requirement
for the 0200?

Hi Peter,
This afternoon I had a long and very fruitful chat with John
(johntenhave@...) in Sydney (didn't get his surname which is a
bit embarasing) who knows you and strongly recommended I give you a
call and have a talk about a couple of issues he and I discussed. If
it is something you would consider, you could email me your phone
number (spilligan@...) with some preferred or not times
that I might call at.

Richard, I'm not sure exactly which items you need, but I can probably help. Give me a call. Between Xmas and N/Year would probably be good to meet, especially if the weather's bad. If it's good, I'll likely be busy at the airfield.

I am currently looking for a replacement rudder pivot post and arm welded
assembly for the Tri Q, which I think is part number Q2CSA10, ( that may be
the old Q2 short moment version number ) If anyone has a spare preferably
the wider one please advise, or where I can get one.

Re: Firewall

Peter Harris <peterjfharris@...>
 

Trevor,

At this time there are only two QJabs flying. I have made good use of the
mag box by converting it to a high capacity air filter box for the J3300.
You will need to attach the Jab as close as possible to the firewall for CG
and I fitted 2.4KG ballast in the tail as well. The mag cavity needs to be
lowered as close as possible to the surface of the canard to make clearance
for the carb inlet flange. I have a drawing of the engine mount which was
approved in principle by Jabiru.

Peter

I suspect I am going to risk the good favour of you all, by asking so
many questions on topics long ago discussed and no doubt put to rest
and beg your indulgence for being a pain in the bum. I built my
firewall to suit the 0200 I had at the time and as a result it has the
large central cavity for the magneto (magneto box). I will be going in
the direction of a Jabaru now and am wondering about that firewall
magneto box intrusion into my cockpit/instrument area. My question is -
In practical terms, is it a problem if it remains there, and if it has
advantage to removed it, what is the suggested fix to remove it? Does
one cut out and rebuild the entire firewall or do a mod to the existing
one? Thanks for your comments

Having yet to attach the nose wheel to my Tri-Q and having been out of
the loop for many years, I am interested to know more about what the
problem is with the old one and what the fix is, and cost etc. I
presume the old unit is not suitable for beefing up (that seems to be
what is needed?)

Sunbumps part 2 - the sequel !

Richard Thomson
 

3 months ago young Mike Dwyer wrote to me about refinishing when I first
started work on FN, and the phenomenon of the expanding peeling process, and
of course he was right, to some extent at least. The sunbumps remind me of
what mum said all those years ago , " leave those spots alone, the more you
play with them, the worse they will become" .
The tail cone is nearly restored, using West System and lightweight filler,
which has worked quite well provided you use the correct process.
Unfortunately the weather over here has been cool and wet for the best part
of the last 4 weeks, so although it now just needs a final splodge of filler
to level up in places, and repainting, it will be a few weeks before that
happens ( I have a metal workshop which condensates if you try to heat it
when it rains ) .
I have tested the paint surface and it is a two pack polyurethane, so I will
refinish with the same, better UV protection so the book says. I have been
trying a 2 pack polyester filler primer which first tests seem ok. It bonds
well to the original polyester and the new epoxy fillers.
The canopy is nearly all repaired as well, ready for paint, but it does need
the rubber seal replacing, which I am not sure if it is a standard P seal
used on all the Q's ? Anyone any info please ?
