Hi Sam,
We are in Ohio tonight due to weather and fatigue.  The situation in Binghampton NY prevented us from finding a hotel, so we slept in a recliner and ate popcorn for 2 days.  Had our first real meal tonight and promtly fell asleep.  Wished all day that we could be eating ribs a seeing everyone tonight.  The plane is running great and we are going to stay in Canton tomorrow night and fly home on Monday.  Hope everyone has a good time there and stays safe. Looking forward to pictures and reports.  I'll call tomarrow morning, might be a liittle late to call tonight.

Hey All,
My wife and I were forced to evacuate our home yesterday due to
flooding in our area. So far our house seems to have made it through
the night without a problem, but the communities surrounding us (outside
the levees) are completely devastated. We feel so blessed to have
dodged yet another bullet from mother nature. (So far.) We are
currently crashed out in a hotel on much higher ground and keeping our
fingers crossed that the levees continue to hold.

I will have limited access to e-mail, but wanted to let you know why I
might be a little hard to communicate with for the net few days.

Good luck at Marion this weekend everyone! Please take lots of
pictures and provide continuing reports form the field. I look forward
to hearing about the event, even though I couldn't make it out there in
person. Wish us luck! ;-)

Unfortunately what I have are the Q2 plans which show a very different
firewall than what is on my plane (as well as a number of other
differences - LS1 canard, tilt-up canopy, etc.). My firewall is
recessed, has a metal engine mounting bracket floxed into the top of
the airframe forward of the firewall and two lower hard-points forward
of the firewall. The dimensions (spacing) are very different than what
is called for in the Q2 plans. That's what got me wondering if the
plane was originally set up to accommodate the O200. I'm going to buy
the O200 installation manual and start there. That may shed some
additional light on the subject.

Re: 2011 LAA Rally (UK)

Chris Rayner <chris-rayner@...>
 

Hi Paul, I think you might be getting muddled up with the Greatorix’s (father and son) two Q200’s. One of them won “best in show” or similar at a PFA rally in the mid to early 90’s I think – before I was involved anyway. Both were at Enstone when I first visited the place about 1999 or so. I spoke to Robin (the son) around that time for advice and also possibly a flight – I didn’t get either. Then both Q’s were moved away and I don’t think they have flown since. I believe they are languishing and no longer flyable. The one I have built was a part built kit, but I also bought the salvage which was Terry Francis’s (now running Reality Aircraft) Q2, but with an LS1 canard. Terry had ground-looped and then cart-wheeled when taking off at Thruxton. This was fairly certainly caused by having only a single brake handle and he could not straighten up the plane as it ran off course. He tried to take off before running into the rough but didn’t.... Having inspected it, I repaired and used the canard and a few other items (upholstery, and some metalwork). So far, it seems to be working fine.

Cheers

Chris

Hi Chris

Was the aircraft built by Terry not a Q200?

It has been quite a while since I was at Cranfield, but I remember a Q200 which was quite remarkable in that the standard of workmanship was very professional, and I thought that Terry (and his son?) had built it.
I don't think that it was a Q2, but I seem to remember that he had built two Q's.

How was your Q damaged?

Hi Jim, I know you went to Cranfield – I had the privilege to meet you there very soon after I bought the part-built kit that I now fly in. It must have been around 1999. I was busily learning all I could from a very nice Q2 that was there, belonging to Terry Francis. I know about it because I bought it when it had been damaged and used the canard after I repaired it and many other small items.

The event moved to Kemble about 2003, missed a year or two, then moved to Sywell in 2008 (I think).

You’re right about the spotters being a strange bunch, but their efforts do provide a bunch of photos on the net. I’m always amazed how many pics turn up when I Google my Q’s registration. And 2 days after the event, a whole stream of pictures are already appearing. – take a look at http://www.flickr.com/photos/sandralewisrice/6113055401/in/photostream/

Chris, is this an event that replaced what used to be held at Cranfield in July? I have been to a couple and know it got moved at least once. As a determined Oshkosher I was highly amazed to see a whole passel of aircraft about which I knew nothing. An excellent learning experience. I was puzzled about all the guys with notebooks writing down stuff and wandering around. I came to know them as spotters... a STRANGE bunch to me... but extremely dedicated and relentless. I met a guy who I encouraged to attend Oshkosh... he did and got his mind and notebook blown clean away. He wore out a whole box of pens and left the US with nearly terminal writers cramp!
I was amazed when the "tannoy" announcecd an Irish P-51 on long final and the Brits swarmed like ants to the ramp where they knew it would shut down. WOW what a nice feeling for an American.

Chris,

Thanks for the report on the 2011 LAA Rally. It would really be nice if you
could send some pictures to Dan for the newsletter.

Hi all, Gary McKirdy and I flew in my Q (G-CUIK) to the 2011 LAA Rally at
Northampton (Sywell) on Saturday. This is the UK's premier light aircraft
fly-in and was 3 days; 2nd to 4th September. Our flight from Enstone was
only about 25 minutes each way, so not far and we delayed start while we
waited for the cloudbase to climb from 500 feet and eventually took off at
about 11am, still keeping below the cloud at a bit less than 2000 feet.

The flight was uneventful but the visibility was not good. As normal for
these events, it can be very busy and chaotic as you turn onto final. This
was made worse this year as there was a 15 knot headwind, so some aircraft
were heading in at little more than 20 knots and we were a bit faster! We
managed to put down after only one go around and when we looked back, there
were 9 aircraft in line to land.

Although most people there were spotters (and there are some photos already
posted on spotters websites), the day was full of meeting old acquaintances
(mainly Gary's) including Richard Thompson who is still re-building his
Tri-Q. We were among the last to leave that day and as we were getting ready
to swing the O-200, four Scotsmen wandered up (one in a kilt) - one said
"That's my airplane". The guy was Nigel Campbell who I'd bought the part
built kit from in 1998. He was absolutely delighted to see his kit flying
and although he now has an RV4, his soft spot was for the Q.

We expect to be back next year and there is a real danger that 3 (or maybe
even more) Q's will be there! That would be the first time in probably 20
years and definitely a move in the right direction.

Cheers

Chris Rayner (G-CUIK)

Hi Chris

Was the aircraft built by Terry not a Q200?

It has been quite a while since I was at Cranfield, but I remember a Q200 which was quite remarkable in that the standard of workmanship was very professional, and I thought that Terry (and his son?) had built it.
I don't think that it was a Q2, but I seem to remember that he had built two Q's.

How was your Q damaged?

Regards

TriQ-200.....still buildingggg!

Hi Jim, I know you went to Cranfield – I had the privilege to meet you there very soon after I bought the part-built kit that I now fly in. It must have been around 1999. I was busily learning all I could from a very nice Q2 that was there, belonging to Terry Francis. I know about it because I bought it when it had been damaged and used the canard after I repaired it and many other small items.

The event moved to Kemble about 2003, missed a year or two, then moved to Sywell in 2008 (I think).

Re: O200 installation question

denver_longez <denver_longez@...>
 

Unfortunately what I have are the Q2 plans which show a very different firewall than what is on my plane (as well as a number of other differences - LS1 canard, tilt-up canopy, etc.). My firewall is recessed, has a metal engine mounting bracket floxed into the top of the airframe forward of the firewall and two lower hard-points forward of the firewall. The dimensions (spacing) are very different than what is called for in the Q2 plans. That's what got me wondering if the plane was originally set up to accommodate the O200. I'm going to buy the O200 installation manual and start there. That may shed some additional light on the subject.

Your comments are very much appreciated.

Best,
William

And, there is a page in the Q200 addendum with the firewall dimensions. You got the Q200 plans? Mike

William. I think what you are looking for is the layout of the mounting
bosses, on the engine itself.

That is available in the drawings contained in the O-200 overhaul manual.
Do a Google search for this manual and you should find what you need.

Richard - Thanks for your response. I had a feeling I wasn't conveying what
I wanted very clearly. What I'm curious about is the spacing on the firewall
side of the mount between the top two mounting points, bottom two mounting
points, and between the top and bottom mounting points. I'm trying to figure
out if the motor mount for the O200 will just bolt up to my plane.

Thanks again,
William
