I'm trying to re-read all the old newsletters (bedtime reading -- doesn't
make me sleepy ;-)). In Quicktalk #18 there is a letter from Sheehan
advising moving the axle forward up to 3/4 inch; in Quicktalk #19 this is
discussed further and the writer notes that the templates for the
wheelpants for the LS-1 show the axle location 3 in. forward for the LS-1
vs. GU.

Not sure if this helps -- Mike Perry

Re: Wheel location

That's correct Mike.
It's all down to the moment arm between the C of G and the axle.
Move the axle forward and you increase the moment arm, thereby increasing the tendency to groundloop.
Moving the wheels back, behind the C of G, requires a nosewheel but gives a self stabilising ground run.

there is forward. I had a buddy that could fly anything, he overloaded
(a normally docile) Tailorcraft with rear CG and couldn't keep it on the
runway. Anyway, moving the wheels forward without some professional

Re: Tailspring replacements

Mike Perry <dmperry1012@...>
 

So, as a starting point, the QAC spring WAS poorly constructed?

(I actually have an idea about making a tailspring in my own shop --
central structure longitudinal glass with bias plys wrapped in each
direction -- the trick is the jig to hold everything, and how to vacuum bag
the structure while still on the jig.)

Re: Tailspring replacements

Peter Harris <peterjfharris@...>
 

Mike,

With help from John Tenhave we analysed my broken tail spring after I landed
backwards following an encounter with the fence. The kit tail spring was
VERY poorly made with much excess resin. John designed a tubular glass
spring which Sam and I have been using successfully for the past couple of
years. It is lighter, stronger and more flexible than the original spring.
Unfortunately my spring maker is now asking AUD140 per part ie it is time
consuming tedious work that does not suit his shop.

I am sure John would release the recipe if you want to make your own but you
would need to make a slightly tapered mandrel and wrap the part and oven
cure it.

Alternatively there are manufacturers of glass fishing rods that would
possibly take on the job but volume is so small.

Subject: [Q-LIST] Tailspring replacements



I'm re-reading the old newsletters. It's obvious there were many
tailspring (TS) breaks in the early days. I have questions about why the
TS broke and about replacement choices. I also need to replace my TS --
probably start on the tail cone work in about 2 months. Questions:

1) Did the QAC tailsprings break because of bad design or bad
production? That is, would a properly constructed 5/8 inch glass rod be
strong enough? Would making it longer help? (more length to dissipate
shock loads?)

2) Has anyone tried making their own TS?

3) What do experienced flyers recommend for replacement? I am aware of
spring steel (Patillo) and cut-down Dragonfly (Farnum) tailsprings. Are
there other options?

4) Is their a current source for a Dragonfly TS? I thought Aircraft
Spruce took over D-fly sales, but I don't see the D-fly in the current
catalog.

Re: How to get on the Q1 list?

Hi Rob,

a 1/72 scale model will require a microscope...

There is an engine installation section, it is very clever and simple,
short load paths, minimal hardware.

I will check the tail FS for you.

Have a look in the weight and balance data, I seem to recall the
relevant data was in there.

Re the Q1 group, most if not all reside on this list as well.
The value of a separate listing is debatable, I guess it depends on
whether you are a "lumper or a splitter".

The Q performance group has a different mission as a platform for the
experimentalists. It is accepted by all on that list that what they
propose / trial is different from the accepted configurations.

Hope that helps.

John

Might make a nice pin for Madelyn Albright or a paperweight though!

Hi Rob

You are going to have to work through a magnifying glass to build a 1/72 scale Q1.
I figure it will have a wingspan of less than three inches.

A quarter scale R/C flying model would be interesting though.

Hello John,

I recently found the Q1 construction manual as a PDF, and found it
fascinating reading. Composites structures are my daily work, but
it's such a wide area of technology that you learn something new
every time you study a composite structure. Also, I've been thinking
about trying to build a 1/72 model of a Q1 (I'm a scale modeler).

My idea was to simply read the Q1 list messages and learn from that.
I don't have urgent questions. I can only think of two that came up
while studying the manual:

- does a manual exist for the engine installation? The manual that I
have stops at the firewall. The original engine installation is what
interests me most.

- how long is the tail spring, or put in a different way, what is the
FS for the tail wheel axis? The manual doesn't seem to tell that

It seems the Q1_Aircraft moderator is too busy to approve new
members. I've applied for the third time, but still no response.
