Q Performance List Announcement

Jon Finley <finley@...>
 

Hi all,

I'm pleased to report that a new list now exists for the sole purpose of
discussing performance enhancements for our Q's. This list is NOT for
general Q discussion (that is the purpose of the Q-List). Topics related to
making the Q go faster, less draggy, or more efficient will be discussed on
the Q-Performance list. This means that most things discussed on this new
list will be items that are NOT per-plans.

If you are still building your Q, I strongly encourage you to build the
airplane per plans and learn to fly it that way. The one sure way to never
finish/fly your airplane is to stray from the plans. If you are flying and
would like to discuss increasing your performance, this list is for you.

Here are the details:

Re: Porpeller data sheet (56D/45P) Neil Jepsen

Neil Jepsen <jepsen@...>
 

Boy oh boy Justin,, at a glance that prop is sure out of balance. For instance, at the 75% mark, one blade has a 45.5" pitch and the
other blade is 56" ! It gets worse as the distance gets out. I don't know how significant these errors are but they would seem so. I'll
go measure one of my props this afternoon, and report back tomorrow.

Hope this data is helpful in identifying your RPM problem. Also, if the data dose not display well send me your e-mail address and
I will sent the data to you as a attached speadsheet.

7 inch point.

Re: Waddelow Canard

Bruce
My PC is acting up ! Did you get my mail of a few minutes ago listing
the 'Waddelow' canard constructional differences ?
What kind of pics are you thinking of ? An LS1 canard is an LS1
canard,...they all look the same !
On the other hand, I have plenty of girlie pics [ all in good taste !],

Re: Waddelow Canard

Paul Buckley <Buckley@...>
 

Bruce
I have the plans and constructional notes for the 'Waddelow' canard but I
will have to photo-copy them as I don't have a scanner, and send them snail
mail. This may take a couple of weeks.
Essentially the canard is laid up the same way as the main wing with the
following differences :-

No dihedral [or anhedral !]
All spar caps longer and tapered
Extra spar cap on upper surface
Extra shear-web from BL15 to BL 57 at 30% cord
Main shear web at 60% cord [the carbon spar is at 55% cord]
Main shearweb reinforced
Glass ribs at BL 15
Cordwise reinforcing strips, 6" wide, on top surface at BL 16
Slightly different planform to simplify cutting cores and fitting elevators

.......and that's about it !
It should be noted that this canard is for the Tri-Q only, whereas the Larry
Weishaar and Jim
Doyle canard would appear to be good for the tail dragger.

Re: Steve Whiteside/ now Danel Estes and/or Patricia Wright

Paul Buckley <Buckley@...>
 

Thanks Larry
Danel Estes and Patricia Wright were, maybe still are, building a Tri-Q 200
with a Waddelow canard. I would like to know if they made any mods to the
canard, did they load test it and, most especially, has it flown yet !
What would be really useful is an e-mail address for him/her/them !!

Looking at my handy Q aircraft database I found several names that might
work for you.

Danel Estes Arlington, Texas 817-467-0373
T.J. Wright Friedens, Pennsylvania 814-445-2460
Ross Wright Canyon Country, California 805-252-0801

What information are you wanting from them?

Larry

Dave Richardson and Bruce Crain

On looking through my back copies of 'Q-Talk', in issue #14,
March/April
1989 I see there is a letter from a Danel Estes [# 2872] and Patricia J.
Wright, where they write about the building of their Tri-Q 200 and
mention
that the canard is of the Waddelow variety !
Any chance that Dave could find contact numbers for these two ?
Many thanks
Paul Buckley

Sorry Paul Buckley,
Steve Whiteside's e-mail address came back as undeliverable. He must
have a new address or something

Thanks to everyone for the responses to my questions ,

Mike did you know later model 13b's have lighter weight rotating assemblies , also
alloy water pump housings . The series 4 is decompressed and the series 5 is high
compression . They both have much higher quality rotor housings , crome/moly
( I think) surfaces instead of the crome plated steel ones in the earlier motors .
The standard port opening and all the after market ports I have seen are not very kind to the
side and apex seals . Observe the area on the side housing just above the port ,
there is always a shiny little nick where the side seal closes . This causes premature
blowby , and can be eliminated with the correct port profile .
With the swiss cheesy looking rotor inners , Check for possible oil supply problems .
some bozoes like to remove the springs and ball bearings from the oil jets in the ecc
shaft .
I cut my teeth on an RX2 as well , 95000 miles worth .When putting headers on any
rotary there should be an increase in both top and bottom end power .
If only the top end increased this would suggest your pipe dia was too large . What type of
port job , header length and dia was your RX2 ?
Will you be running a water temp themostat?
You can plug the water bypass remove the thermo and increase cooling , make sure you
put a wire coil in the bottom radiator hose to avoid the water pump sucking it flat .
Thats one thing less that can go wrong .
Have you seen some of the smaller rotes available through Wankel and Midwest ,
They are around 50kgs with redrive giving 70 horse , offering a choice of fuels even
diesel . That would have to satisfy the fuel misers .
Per horspower the wankel would use very little more fuel than pistons , and according to
Mike Dwyer less at cruise revs .
Yes I have heard of Tracy Crooks EMS's and redrives , by all accounts very good systems .
