For all you Q1 guys out there, here is another motor option I ran across with potential, when one likes to keep similar to the Onan setup.
Very nice motors! http://robinamerica.com/pfeatures.aspx?pid=225

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.

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.

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

Re: Epoxy

John Loram <johnl@...>
 

For structural layups I use E-Zpoxy. It seems to me that I've heard of other
structural epoxies, but the E-Zpoxy is what Rutan recommended after the
original stuff became unavailable.

For filling and sanding I use West System with their Microlight (410)
filler.

Re: Epoxy

Richard <mylittlemgb@...>
 

I find myself using more West Systems Epoxy. The biggest reason why is I can pick it up at any boat shop. This saves me in shipping cost and I hate to wait for things to come in. Most of the time I find out I need more when I need to get something done quick. This saves me in the event of my poor planning. E-Z Poxy and Poly Epoxy also work very well. Just try to stay away from Vinyl Ester the stuff is very bad for your heath unless you take the proper precausions like Tyvex suite and fresh air mask.

I don't get anything related to propellers from the first one but my experience with the Ivo prop is that the airfoil is not optimized for the diameter / speed requirements of Q's. Bruce run's an MT I believe and I am sure he will chime in here. 
I haven't tried one yet but you might check with these guys: http://www.variprop.com/products.html What kind of static rpm vs cruise rpm are you seeing for a given pitch/

For The Why???

Rich Gillen
 

Hello Bounds:

None of Rotax's 2 cycle engines, and most of their 4 strokes, are not
certified for airplane use. If you don't understand any engines limitations,
whether it's a 503UL or a 500 sled motor, a 582UL or a 583, out of a sled.
They are both, doomed to fail. A 337UL, 447UL, 503UL, 532UL, 582UL, 618UL's,
all fail to. Whether it be, cranks, rods, pistons, bearings, gaskets, oil
injection, high rpm's, etc. Using poor fuel(low octane) is probably the
leading cause of most failures from my research. Different 2 cycle oils do play
into the mix as well. There are usually many reasons why any motor fails.
Some times it's a chain reaction of events. Some times, it's hard to
isolate the problem.

I said to run the sled motors along the same guide lines(That's RPM's,
Maintenance, pipe, etc) as the UL motors, and they should give you the same,
but cheaper service life. Of course, I expect you to do a total basic
rebuild on the motor, not just pull it out of a high mileage sled and go flying.
Unless you know the history of the motor personally. Like if, it was just
recently all rebuilt, and had very low hours on it still, then I probably
wouldn't do it either, as long as I new the history.

Just a couple of weeks ago, a guy lost his 582UL crank with only 220hrs on
a brand new engine on one of my groups. Another had a rod go and wrecked
the block. I believe the crank guy was quoted $1600 for just a new crank, not
including labor. A 582UL block is around $2500 I think. Yet another guy
has 1200 hrs on his original 582 crank.
_http://jbmindustries.com/582.html_ (http://jbmindustries.com/582.html)

Other than a dual plug head, dual ignition, and a different pipe, and the
block drilled and tapped with the Provision 8 holes. Otherwise their about
identical, even have a lot of the same part numbers. Some sled motors have
RAVE valves, like the 618UL does. They also made a 580(same bore & stroke as
a 582) with out RAVE valves.

UL motors don't have any special "heat rejection capability" as you say.
You simply have air cooled motors, and water cooled motors. Water cooled
motors seem to last longer and have higher HP numbers than air cooled motors!
Skidoo/Rotax still makes a 550F, 2011. I have seen 57hp - 72hp at 6500rpm
numbers, depending on year.

UL motors are just not run, at the higher sled MAX RPM's. Most 447UL -
582UL motors are listed at, MAX 6500rpm, the 618UL was listed at MAX 6800rpm.
Most sled engines, HP numbers, are listed between 7800rpm - 8400rpm.

Most people fly between 4000rpm - 6250rpm with UL motors. A 670 makes 97hp
at 6600rpm, 90.1hp at 6400rpm, still makes 59.7hp at 5000rpm's.

There are Dyno sheets to prove, not guess, what most Rotax engines used in
planes, make at what rpm. Here is one web site, that has UL motors and
some sled motors with UL pipes that were Dyno tested.

Reggie:

The Super Quickie(Q1) conversion was I think a 503UL(50hp) air cooled
engine. Even a 447UL(40hp) was a great improvement, since it came only
with a
22hp Onan generator engine originally.

There was a guy who put a 583(97hp) sled motor in a Quickie(Q1) many years
ago, movie still on YouTube.
Don't know any facts about the engine/drive combo, if it had been rebuilt,
or just pulled out of a sled and
put in the plane, or what RPM's he ran, or what fuel he used, or what pipe
he used, or what oil he was running in it, etc. Be nice to know all the
data.

Guys,

I flew a Super Q-1 for 250 hours many years ago. It performed great after
I finally figured out the tuning. The guy with the 583 Q-1 was known as
"Captain Nitro". So named by Masal for his plan to add a nitrous injection
system to his engine. I can't recall the guys real name. The plane was a
tremendous performer. Yeehaa! That engine sawed the case in two when it
broke a rod after a few hours in the air. These sled motors are not
suitable for aircraft use. PERIOD! They don't have the heat rejection
capability that's necessary at the continuous high power settings that aircraft run.
503's and 582's may seem like they are grossly detuned but that's what it
takes to operate in an aircraft. If you want to try this stuff, do it on
a Quicksilver or a powered parachute, not on a Q-1. With their high
landing speeds and tiny wheels, Q's don't do well landing in grandpa's wheat
field. Ahhh. I'm okay now. Sorry. I just don't want to see anybody hurt in
an airplane that is as fun as a Q.

We had lots of support from Southern Illinois University, the

That's a really interesting question, Mike. BTW, it was 92 degrees in the
air, higher on the ground - but then, I was pretty much at 800 feet or so
for most of the race.

In last year's AirVenture cup race, the outside air was around 70 F and I
was plagued with oil temps of 240+. Crapola. For more detail see:

http://samhoskins.blogspot.com/2010/08/airventure-cup-race-2010-very-long-po
st.html

I recently used the Sawsall on my snorkel inlets. Now, with a more
standard type of inlet, I am getting more RPMs and the oil cooling seems to
be better. I flew the Texoma race a couple of weeks ago and I think the
highest I saw was 200 or so. I think it was about 85 on the ground that
day.

I have also been chasing what Dynon Tech Support describes as a "bad
ground"
which presented itself a a jittery oil temp indication. Recently I added a
couple more ground wires, per Dynon suggestions.

When I flew the race yesterday, my oil temperature never indicated more
than
175 F. Go figure!

However at the same time, I was having a hard time with cylinder #1
overheating. I would have to richen up the mixture to keep the #1 below 330
degrees.

The jitter did not seem to go away.

To further the confusion while troubleshooting the issues, you might think
the oil temp sensor was out of calibration. Well, I checked it last year
against a laboratory thermometer and at that time they were the same within
a degree or two.

So, in the next couple of days I will do the calibration check again and
see
if anything has changed.

Bumfuzzled right now, but 210 was a nice speed. If I flew a little
straighter course, I would have beat that Bonanza.

Just for cuiosity, how were you oil temps at that power setting and
92F surface temps?
Nice job Sam!

Hey Sam, congrats!

I am just glad that the Bald Eagle actually passed your wing......!

The 2011 Big Muddy Air Race is now in the bag!

My EC3 controlled, O-200 ran about 3,100 RPM for the race, in 92
degree heat.

Several entries scratched before the race, so we ran with a field of
17 aircraft for the 162 nm course. The winds were low, so most people
stayed low. The flooding along the rivers was still apparent, but had
gone down a lot since I scouted the route a couple of weeks ago. Just
past Turn 2, I was over the Mississippi river about 800 feet and a
bald eagle passed off my left wing. How's that for a good omen?

On Friday night we had an excellent time at the Pinch Penny pub,
sucking down some Saluki Dunkle Dog beer, brewed by the Big Muddy
Brewery - a race sponsor.

We had lots of support from Southern Illinois University, the student
group Rotor & Wing Association, and all the volunteers. Thanks to
everyone who came long distances to be here. I had a lot of fun.!

I came in second place in the Sprint class, with a speed of 210.24 mph.

You can see all of the race results here: http://www.sportairrace.org/

And I have some Facebook photos here:

Come on guys, get into this cross country racing. It's a blast and it
won't destroy your engine.

Alternative Engines fly-in

Patrick P <panzera@...>
 

Friends,

CONTACT! Magazine's Alternative Engine Round up is just a few days away!

We have moved from our old digs in Jean NV to coincide with the Golden West Fly-in at Marysville, CA. The date is set for Saturday, June 11th, about 5 days from now.

The cool part is I've worked it out so that those who fly in with an Experimental aircraft that's powered by an alternative engine (including certified engines that have been modified enough to be considered "alternative"... I'll let YOU decide if that's the case), will have the fees for that day waved, and we'll get preferred parking near the hangar that will host the forums.

Here are the details:
http://www.contactmagazine.com/roundup.html
and
http://www.eaa.org/experimenter/articles/2011-05_roundup.asp

The move from Jean to Marysville takes a lot of pressure off the skeleton crew that has hosted it for the past 7 years and hopefully the infrastructure will be more appealing to those who fly-in.

Please pass this along to any other groups you might belong to, that might have an interest in participating in this event.

Check out some of the past issues of CONTACT! Magazine that we have posted on the web:
