Radio noise , How I solved it.

kr2flyer1986
 

I have been fighting a ignition noise that was driving me crazy. Had tried all kind of filters without results. Finally pulled the engine and found the problem was in the right mag.The right mag tower had a bad connection on the number one cylinder.Replaced the plug wire and the radio noise is gone.
Silence is golden.

Darrell,
If it was Sunday at about 10:45AM, then it could have been Kevin and
I. I would be impressed if he could see us from the ground because
we were at 5500 feet. On the way down on Friday we were much lower
(2500 feet?), but also much slower because we had a 30 knot headwind!

Sorry you couldn't make it this year, we had a great time!

and he said they were and two of them flying in formation headed

He said the were going very fast in formation and looked
impressive as

We made it back to DVN nonstop in about 2.5 hours. Nice tail wind.
Spent some time with Terry and Paul, then headed home to DEH.
Beautiful flight from EMP to DVN, rough as hell from DVN to DEH.
Thankfully it was only 50 min. More tailwind!!!
Good to see everyone, old and new. Thanks to Spud and Jim for the
great event.
Next time I buy cards at wolly world!!!!
Oh by the way, Doug, kiss my ass... ; > )))))))

Jim,

When you fly for "cheaper" the drill is always the same. Hurry up and
wait. I've flown all over this country on my United passes for years
and its only getting worse. Having said that, like you, I still
like "cheaper" when possible.

Looks like every one had a great time. Sorry I couldn't have made it
but its down to Vegas this weekend in the Q to see a highschool
friend I haven't seen in many moons.

Regards,
Jim Patillo Q200 N46JP

550mph on a gratis stand-by ticket, here is what it costs me. From
EMP I drove to
KCI and got there about 2pm. I missed 2 packed flights and was
told the next
3 to Dallas were sold out too. So just to get out of a sardine-
crowded KC
airport I hopped a flight to Tulsa, just missing a flight to
Dallas by 4 minutes
then waited another hour and a half for the next one. I got home
by 10pm.
Hell, the Johnson's in their ol' 172 has probably gotten back to
Utah by then!
Modern air travel should make you want to FINISH THAT PROJECT.

I concur with Jerry that these fly-ins are more than just air-
educational
opportunities and a chance for a ride. Even more than that, they
are annual
reunions with genuinely fine and positively- spirited fellow human
beings. Its
better than a state fair or a wasted weekend in front of the boob
toob. I hope
Spud, the grand master of this one, and Jeff and our friend in AZ
can bask
from time to time in the satisfaction that their work has created
enormous joy,
accomplishment and friendships that they will probably hear very
little
about. Not as grand as being responsible for starting a war
somewhere in the

Yea, my boss can be a real a-hole. Watches everything I do, follows me everywhere making certain I do it right, he even goes into the bathroom w/ me. (oh, that's right, I work for myself....).

I know what you are talking about! I travel alot and get to see the conditions that others less fortunate MUST do to survive. Mostly my challenges come from self imposed priorities vs. a gun to the head (even though I make it seem that way by the way I work sometimes...).

Will definately be there next year. I plan on putting 400 hours into the Q2 and have it flying by then (ok, so I will most likely be flying a different plane in....

Wished I could have been there this time. I have the spirit to build this - that fly in would have been the religious experience....

I think there were thoughts abroad about you when Spudley issued a challenge
to anyone who could beat Sam's speed in the performance run at the fly in.
$100 is the reward. Of course when the timers clocked Fisher in at 250 mph we
thought it had already been won!

2007 FOD

jeffrey.letempt@...
 

I made it back to Cuba, MO safe and sound in my 20 year old Dragonfly. Stopped at Warrensburg, MO on the way home to visit with my son who is attending the University of Central MO (UCM). He is on the UCM flying team and they were doing spot landing try-outs. I landed on runway 18 during their practice this morning and (although I did not see their chalk lines on the runway) I missed the spot by about 150 feet. I told those kids, who were sitting in lawn chairs about 15 feet off the edge of the runway, that they must not know how I land my Dragonfly. I got there just in time to hop in a C172 and fly 6 traffic patterns with my son at the controls. It was the first time that I flew with him as the PIC. He is working on his instrument rating this semester.

Took off from Warrensburg and flew right over the top of Whiteman AFB and saw a B2 bomber (and a bunch of other military aircraft) sitting on the ramp. Nice and hot and bumpy and a little headwind (both going to the fly-in and on the way home). Landing back at Cuba I had winds about 40 degrees off the runway heading at 15 gusting to 20...but I made a nice landing.

I probably have about 400 or so landings in my Dragonfly, but it seems like I am always creating excitement at the FOD. My first landing at the fly-in this year was terrible...my landing with Ingolf after the parade of planes on Saturday morning was terrible...I flew for about 20 minutes on Saturday afternoon and my landing was terrible...then I get back to my home airport with nasty winds (and no one watching) and make a nice smooth pretty landing. It seems that I fold under the pressure. At the next FOD fly-in I want everyone to turn around and look the other way during my landings.

I went out last weekend and practiced landings while flying from the right seat because I figured that I would be giving a few rides and wanted to let the other pilot fly in the left seat if they were taller than me (more leg room in the left seat). I did 10 touch and goes in about 40 minutes and except for the first landing due to a slightly different site picture, they were all 10's. I mean nice squeakers. Then I get to the fly-in and I would rate my landings at about a 5.5, 4, and 6 on a scale of 1-10.

At the last FOD I hosted in Sullivan I made about 1/2 the crowd soil themselves when I was flying with David then the next morning I just about ran off the side of the runway. Last year wasn't so bad. Due to the winds we did not fly much...I think I only had to land 3-4 times and I do not remember having to change my drawers more than I normally would.

Dragonfly N41GK - 2nd best Dragonfly at the fly-in....there were only 2 Dragonfly's at the fly-in. My grandpa used to always joke with us that he was the 3rd smartest kid in his class....but there were only 3 kids in his class. I hope we have more Dragonfly's at the fly-in next year.

I enjoyed visiting with you guys at the fly-in and hope we can do it again next year. THANKS Spud for all the hard work you did putting the fly-in together!!!

Jerry Marstall <jnmarstall@...>
 

As darkness crept into the mountains, Nancy and I slithered into Asheville around 8:00pm after a day of chasing Earnest and Donna through the sky. The Sundowner did its noble job well.

As usual, it was just fantastic seeing all of you good people and continuing on with a tradition that is so valuable to all of us. This event is what puts the fire back into the builders. It magnifies the joy of flying one of these birds. This tradition must continue because I can't imagine even one of us working our tail off for years so he can fly to the FOD only to find out that one isn't going to be held that year. BUMMERRRRRRRRRR!!! Traditions much endure.

Spud now, and others in the past, have perpetuated this tradition and we want to add our THANKS!!!
Glad to hear everyone got home safely and can't wait to see all you nuts again next year.
Jerry & Nancy
