Oil bladder? You mean the sump?

Bruce, there are lots and lots of models of carb and but the parts catalog
may not show each arm configuration.

Listers,

Once again spring is approaching. I has been very nice here the last few days. I even committed aviation yesterday.

The Spring Fling is just 60 days hence. I have struck a deal with one motel in Decorah. The Country Inn & Suites has agreed to block 15 rooms for our fly in. Not cheap, however a very nice place. Includes a full breakfast, pool, exercise room etc. Enough with the commercial. The rate is $99.95 per weekend night, but I got it discounted to $85. The phone number is 563-382-9646.

Ask for the Tandem Wing Spring Fling rate. The room block will be held until filled, or the 10th of May. Their normal cancelation policy is 48 hours, again due to my excellent bargaining skills, our group can cancel as late as 6:00 PM date of arrival.

I know it's a bit pricy, but the whole town is that way.

There are other accommodations in DEH, and anyone can feel free to make their own reservations elsewhere. You will hurt my feelings not. Super 8 563-382-8771( so so), Heartland Inn 563-382-2269 (under some renovations) , Hotel Winneshiek 563-382-4164 (VERY PRICY), Bluffs Inn (kinda dusty).

Camping of a primitive nature will be allowed on the airport grounds too.

I had told Day Yager that I would get the info up on a page at his site, but I am not going to be able to get that done. So if you need more info on these motels google it up yourself! ;>)))))

Get your reservations in and fly or drive to NE Iowa for a good time.

The Spring Fling, be there or be square!

Re: Getting Stiffner

Jim Patillo
 

Hi Jerry,

I discovered I didn't have the stiffeners over my canard until 300 hours, lucky me! Glad you saw it now. In my case, when I decided to switch from stock and build an LS1 Q200, I missed that part.

I have (2)3/16"T x 1 1-2"W (marine plywood)bi-directional glass covered stiffeners on the firewall running from fuselage (equally spaced)to mag box on both sides. Also(1)3/8"T x 2"W (white foam) bi-directional glass covered stiffeners running from spar (centered over carbon spar)to header tank both sides.

Hi Jerry

There is a picture of my Q235 stiffeners in the G-BXOY photo album on this list, which are similar.

The plans Q200 are 1/8" aircraft grade ply two bid at 45 bias, 2"over lap to firewall.

I think if you trawl through Sam Hoskins Blog around picture 100_4451 to 100_4454 should tell you all you need to know. Sam's look like 1/4" so may be foam? Mine are foam and so either way should be OK.

This link if it works should get you close.

Went flying for the first time this spring. Had to wait for the ice block to melt in front of the hanger. Great to get back in the air!

I got to test my APRS tracker. This is a system that gives real time tracking so the wife can keep track of me on google APRS mapping.

Hi Marko,

See message 35724 for the poll results earlier this year. The count of people on this list actively building a Q1 as of the end of January 2010 was 2.

Hi everyone, I am new to this group and come with enthusiasm for the design. My dad built a Dragonfly when I was a kid. I am currently flying a Glastar that my dad and I built. My dad and I are currently building a Skybolt, and when that is done I want to build or re-build/finish a really hot Q-200. I would like to hang around the list and learn what I can while I look for the right deal on a project plane. If someone knows of a Q-200 project that is worth looking at, or a kit at a reasonable price I would love to know about it. I live in Pittsburgh, Pa. but I can get around for the right opportunity.
