Rene,
I removed the ad. Please let me know if you have any feedback about
the classified ads. (and you're welcome.)

There have been a couple of recent incidents of first time flyers
crashing their newly purchased Q's on first flight, and I intend to
write an article about this in the next newsletter. If anyone has some
suggestions about how to smack some sense into some of the low time
pilots, with more money (or credit) than skill, please contact me
offlist.

As the Q-munity gets a little older, I think we'll see more planes up
for sale, and lots of them being snapped up by younger folks interested
in this "cool" looking design. I'm all for handing out Darwin Awards,
(hey it makes the gene pool stronger), but I'm concerned about giving an
even worse reputation to a good design.

Let me know what you all think.

If/when the time comes for me to retire "*Plastic Explosive*", I guess I'll
just have to donate it to a museum.

Here are my likely pilot qualifications for a buyer.

- Must be an A&P or have scratch-built at least one high performance
aircraft and test flown it through the first 40 hours.
- Must be very familiar with aircraft electronics and
be capable of interpreting a schematic.
- Be familiar with fuel injection systems.
- Must have 200 hours of high performance taildragger time, 30 hours of
which must be in the last 6 months.
- Must be under 50 years of age.
- Additional points if you're single with no dependents.

Myself I would use the MT prop, I have had the chance to fly behind the
Woodcomp prop and it is a nice unit. From what I have seen the MT seems to
be the most used option. Regardless you won't be going wrong. When using a
fixed pitch prop you're compromising on cruise and climb. The cost is the
reason most go with the fixed pitch and ground adjustable gives the
opportunity to change your mind. Constant speed gives you all the above.

My Tri-Q200 has a Warp Drive, ground-adjustable prop. Being in a hot,

prop or stuck with cruise prop." Do any Quickies have an in-flight
adjustable prop installed? Anyone have experience using them with an 0-200?
www.woodcomp.com is a Czech company that makes an electric one, as does
www.ivoprop.com, and the prices seem reasonable. Does anyone know any
sound mechanical/aerodynamic reasons NOT to proceed with that plan? Are they
really as "bolt and fly" as their websites claim?
While I love my new Quickie, both the climb (when loaded) and the top
speed seem less than they should be. Thanks in advance!

Motors for Q1's

There is new 4 stroke 35 HP engine from Czechoslovakia which looks very
good for the Q1. It is very light at only about 60 lb, but fairly
expensive at about 3000 Euros.

Martin,

I didn't think Gary was making props for the 0200. Last I heard it was only for the LYC. Alan Thayer got a new one the other day for his Long EZE and it really looked nice.

Regards,

Off to Golden West in Marysville for the EAA fly in.

I would agree. Also Prince has done a pretty good job. One that I will be trying is the silver bullet from Gary Hertzler. It is a very low drag prop that gives great climb as well as cruise performance.

Before you go to all that trouble and $$$ for an MT, you might want to give
Craig Catto a call. He makes great props and really lnows his stuff.

Myself I would use the MT prop, I have had the chance to fly behind the
Woodcomp prop and it is a nice unit. From what I have seen the MT seems to
be the most used option. Regardless you won't be going wrong. When using a
fixed pitch prop you're compromising on cruise and climb. The cost is the
reason most go with the fixed pitch and ground adjustable gives the
opportunity to change your mind. Constant speed gives you all the above.

My Tri-Q200 has a Warp Drive, ground-adjustable prop. Being in a hot,
high area (Arizona), I would love to have choices beyond "stuck with climb
prop or stuck with cruise prop." Do any Quickies have an in-flight
adjustable prop installed? Anyone have experience using them with an 0-200?
www.woodcomp.com is a Czech company that makes an electric one, as does
www.ivoprop.com, and the prices seem reasonable. Does anyone know any
sound mechanical/aerodynamic reasons NOT to proceed with that plan? Are they
really as "bolt and fly" as their websites claim?
While I love my new Quickie, both the climb (when loaded) and the top
speed seem less than they should be. Thanks in advance!

Re: Epoxy

Martin Skiby
 

I am using EZ Poxy, but you can also use the Aero Poxy as well they are both a high strength structural bond. West should only be used for non structural and fill applications. It does not have a high enough stress rating to be used in a structure layup. This is per the Rutan aircraft factory.

What type epoxy is everyone using these days is it E-Zpoxy or some other brand. Does anyone have any of the old safe-t-poxy hardener (Part D hardener) that is still good and unopened. I know there is a health risk with it and some say it's not good but there are a lot of aircraft built with this old epoxy. Please reply (epadams@...).

West is great for non-structural components. I would not build wings,
control surfaces, etc. with it. EZ Poxy is equal to Safety-poxy, time
tested, and only a health problem if you are a rat in California :-)
