Howdy everybody,

I too got home ok, though on lousy Untied Airlines, with an unscheduled,?very late departure connecting out of Denver due to some system glitch somewhere, and causing me to miss the BART train where my car was parked; finally got into Oakland at midnight, so Jimmy, you didn't do so badly after all in comparison!? Yeah, makes me wanna finish my plane real fast here so i won't have to rely on commercial ever again!

I totally concurr with Jimmy, Jerry M. and the others who have really hit it on the head about these fly-ins... Spud, HUGE kudos to you for so consistently providing for a full weekend?where one's batteries can be recharged and when friendships of longstanding can be renewed - i can't believe it, but i've been attending for 12 years, and each time there, i am encouraged to keep up the faith that one day, i too will be flying, and that's a great feeling.? Our group has kept this design alive and has made it even better and safer and has helped to prevent building in a vacuum, which would have made it really tough to get our planes in the air.? Every time i come back home, the fire burns brightly and is also kept alive by contacts throughout the year with others who are always there for answers and advice.? So Spud, my thanks to you again!!? Your efforts make a huge difference in the lives of a lot of people.

So much fun seeing everybody again, and you can always count on some great laughs at the awards dinner and throughout the event.? I don't know when i have ever laughed harder than at these dinners! My sides were actually sore from laughing.

Ok, i'm already planning my work list, now that i have some great solutions for what lies ahead. Thanks guys, and gals for your help with that, and to Brusky for the ride Saturday morning, great stuff!

Be prepared to see a lean, green flying machine next year!

We would probably have to have a discussion about "GOOD lead"!! ;-)

But seriously, I would agree with Jerry - flying lead is way more
work than wing. I only had two jobs - stay in position and manage my
plane (fuel, temps, etc.). Leading is hard because you have to
navigate, communicate, watch for traffic, stay on heading, stay on
altitude, watch the map, stay out of restricted airspace, etc.

I like to fly wing because I'm lazy!

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!

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

Hello everyone,
I arrived back here at ORE at 11:00 am EDT in perfect weather. I flew all day yesterday, but ran out of daylight in Wellsville NY ( a beautiful airport on top of a mountain with 5000' x 100' runways). The total flying time round trip was 21.3 hours, and I averaged 5 gph. I figured that to be about 21 miles per gallon, not including the fun factor, which calculates to 100 smiles per gallon. It was great to see everyone, and I looked forward to this event for quite some time, hoping that the weather would cooperate for such a long flight. It was my first trip with my recently installed TruTrak Pictorial Pilot auto pilot, and it made the trip 10 times easier. It performed perfectly, and although its only single axis, there were times when I didn't touch the stick once for 30-45 minutes, and my altitude didn't vary more than 100 feet during these long stretches. It shows how stable the Q is in pitch, I could make little adjustments by changing the position of my
arms or legs, and I had no fatigue compared to how I've felt after long trips without it. Makes me feel a little guilty being awarded a prize for longest distance.
Thanks again Spud for all of your efforts.....a trip to remember. Great to see everyone, and great to be home. Dave Dugas

Tri Q Main hoop attachment bolts

Richard Thomson
 

Hi All,
I am in the process of taking the bolts out of the landing gear hoop at
present to replace them and check the fittings etc. One of the bolts
seemed easy to undo, the other is corroded solid into the tube. The
worrying thing is the one that seemed easy, was in fact half sheared
through, and finally sheared off tonight as I was working it out of the
fitting. Looking at the break, its quite obvious that it has been
cracked for some time, and there is some bend in the bolt, so has seen
some action in its time. The other one is still stuck fast and looks
like a long job.
It may be worth adding a check to the next maintenance session to look
at and replace them if they are fairly old, possibly with a smear of
anti sieze as the new ones go back. I nearly left them as they were,
and I'm glad now that I didn't, even that they are a pain to sort out.

Spud better carefully refine those specs on his challenge. Sometimes even in
the NASCAR circuit a sure-fire winner blows a tire at the end and a slower #2
takes the trophy! Forget the small nosewheel Martin, start looking for a big

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.

Re: Emporia

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.

To piggyback off of Jerry Marstall's fluent note: As darkness
clanged down
hard over Dallas, I was in Tulsa watching a grey wall of dark cloud
discharge
meandering toward the airport. As I have told about how I like to
fly at
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
world, but a proper human accomplishment.

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....
