Flight planning software

You may be interested in this...

For fligh planning I use DUATS GoldenEagle FlightPrep. It goes online and gets the wind, shows TFR's, Class B, terrain, lets you pick the best altitude based on the winds, overlays the weather and TFR's on a Chart. You input your airplane characteristics and it figures out the flight time and fills in a flight plan. You can save your flight plans for future use. Best of all it's FREE for the VFR version! It is a bit tricky to setup (helpdesk at 1-800-345-3828) and has a somewhat high learning curve to use but overall a great tool.

You need a DUATS account which is free at http://www.duats.com/

Get the Free Gloden Eagle software at http://www.duats.com/cirrus.shtml

Fly Safe,

Thank you all for the good advice, and help in resolving thrustline
discrepancy in the plans.
(1 degree rightthrust & 1 degree downthrust). Now I can move ahead.

Re: Tires

Jim Patillo
 

Hi Paul,

I called this morning to see about the tires. I got Bruce@ Abillity Access(the owner)on the first try. He said to call his cell:510-266-2141 or office:209-239-3800. He has lots of tires! Be careful of the gray tires, there may be an issue as they are for Quickie Wheelchairs" not Quickie Airplanes.

Regards,
Jim

Re: Q-200 right thrust / down thrust question

Fisher Paul A. <fisherpaula@...>
 

It was my intention to follow the plans, and I thought that said to put a washer on the left (pilot) side to give it right offset. I'd have to go pull the cowl to be sure though (it was a LONG time ago!!). As Bruce stated, the engine will rub on the left side of the cowl, so a little right offset is a good thing.

I wouldn't spend too much time analyzing it, just put it together and enjoy it. Hopefully you and Jay are learning that these planes are not build to tolerances of 1mm or 0.1 degrees. We built them by hand and did the best we could, and they all work. Some may be "better" than others, but I KNOW mine is "better" than anyone who hasn't finished because mine is flying! Implemented imperfection always beats contemplated perfection. Build on.

Re: Q-200 right thrust / down thrust question

Paul Buckley
 

Sanjay

You have to consider that these are handbuilt, individual, airplanes and, as such, all will be different due to building and alignment errors/techniques.
Therefore you can't just copy what others have done regarding number of washers and their placement; you will have to build in the sidethrust (and downthrust) as accurately as you can, regardless of the number of washers that others have used, and see how she flies, adjusting as necessary.

However, I think that your real question was about the discrepancy in the plans.
I would go for both sidethrust and downthrust.

Re: Q-200 right thrust / down thrust question

sdhall <sdhall@...>
 

Earnest:
Jerry's article in Q-Talk #117 provides a thorough method to overcome any
error in firewall alignment. I intend to use this approach, with some minor
changes, to verify true firewall alignment.
However, my takeaway from this exercise is that, as long as the alignment is
not too far off, the planes performance does not appear to be too sensitive
to thrustline setup, as evidenced by the slight variations in thrustline
setups on airplanes noted earlier.
Thanks
Sanjay

Sanjay, Keep in mind that the method in Jerry's article makes sure the
engine is set up correctly in relation to the fuselage and not the firewall.
If
your firewall is perfect then you can just count washers, but if it isn't
you will not know where the engine is pointing. The full blown fuselage
alignment will insure that the engine is pulling the airframe exactly where
you want.

Jim, Lynn, Doug: Thanks for the info.
To summarize, I have looked through the Q-Talk #117 article authored by
Jerry Marstall which states the need for "1 degree down and 1 degree to the
right".
Lynn's setup with 3 washers at top-left, 1 washer at top-right and 2
washers
at bottom-left seems to confirm this, but has a slight bias for right
thrust.
Jim's setup with a single 1/16" washer at top-left and bottom-left provides
for a 1 degree right thrust only.
And both these airplanes seem to fly hands off.
So I would conclude from these few data points that it is less sensitive to
presence or absence of down-thrust ...assuming the firewall has no error in
its setup.

I think they are trying to say the same thing. If you put washers on the
left engine mounts that would be shimming the engine to the right. As I
recall I have something like 3 washers on the upper left, two on the lower
left, and one on the upper right. Mine flies hands off so must not be too
far off. I just used regular AN washers that fit the engine mount bolts in
the large diameter version.

The Q-200 construction plans section II has contradictory info for the
O-200
engine on 2 different pages.
-On page (i) Step VIII B, it says to place washers at the left engine
mounts
to point the engine slightly to the right.
-On page (ii) Step VII A, its says to shim engine 1 degree right and 1
degree down.
Which is correct?
What thickness of washers/shims do you have at each of the 4 engine mounts?

Re: Q-200 right thrust / down thrust question

Bruce Crain
 

I shimmed my 0200 just to get the left front rocker box cover away from the cowl. If you look closely you will see where the cowl cracked before I shimmed it down and over. I think Paul Fisher and I discussed this and Paul said that he just bolted his with no shims and his airplane flew just fine.
Sanjay you flew with me and I think you liked the way it flew. I don't remember how many washers I put under the left top engine mount but it may be as many as 2 or 3 to get it away from the cowl.

How is your progress? Did you go home excited to work on your Q after Beatrice?!!

Re: Q-200 right thrust / down thrust question

sdhall <sdhall@...>
 

Jim, Lynn, Doug: Thanks for the info.
To summarize, I have looked through the Q-Talk #117 article authored by
Jerry Marstall which states the need for "1 degree down and 1 degree to the
right".
Lynn's setup with 3 washers at top-left, 1 washer at top-right and 2 washers
at bottom-left seems to confirm this, but has a slight bias for right
thrust.
Jim's setup with a single 1/16" washer at top-left and bottom-left provides
for a 1 degree right thrust only.
And both these airplanes seem to fly hands off.
So I would conclude from these few data points that it is less sensitive to
presence or absence of down-thrust ...assuming the firewall has no error in
its setup.
thanks
Sanjay

I think they are trying to say the same thing. If you put washers on the
left engine mounts that would be shimming the engine to the right. As I
recall I have something like 3 washers on the upper left, two on the lower
left, and one on the upper right. Mine flies hands off so must not be too
far off. I just used regular AN washers that fit the engine mount bolts in
the large diameter version.

The Q-200 construction plans section II has contradictory info for the O-200
engine on 2 different pages.
-On page (i) Step VIII B, it says to place washers at the left engine mounts
to point the engine slightly to the right.
-On page (ii) Step VII A, its says to shim engine 1 degree right and 1
degree down.
Which is correct?
What thickness of washers/shims do you have at each of the 4 engine mounts?

Sanjay,

Mine 0200 engine is shimmed 1 degree right only. I used about a 1/16" washer on top and bottom pilot side only! At close to 1000 hours, I would have to say it works. Course I don't speak for anyone but myself.

Re: Q-200 right thrust / down thrust question

MartinErni@...
 

Sanjay, Keep in mind that the method in Jerry's article makes sure the
engine is set up correctly in relation to the fuselage and not the firewall. If
your firewall is perfect then you can just count washers, but if it isn't
you will not know where the engine is pointing. The full blown fuselage
alignment will insure that the engine is pulling the airframe exactly where
you want.
