Re: airplane rigging

Thanks Kevin,
I do have the plans. It looks like the guy built it to the plans but for some reason has it way out of adjustment. Also I cannot figure why the controls are so stiff.When unhooked they move freely. I think I need to take the whole thing apart and redo the rigging. I want to put in dual controls anyway. I personally would be affraid to fly the thing with the controls as stiff as they are. It has to be fixed. I will spend some more time this holdiay looking over the prints to double check every thing. Has to be a reason for the stiffness. Thanks again Darrell

Darrell,
You need to do whatever it takes to get all the surfaces flush with the trailing edges of the canard and wing. I used the quick clamps that are made for woodworking. They are padded, and will hold the elevators and ailerons while you make the connecting tubes the correct length. Do you have the jigs for this? There is a set of three jigs to set up the elevators, ailerons, rudder? They also give you the travel minimum and maximum. You need those if you do not have them. Do you have a set of plans?

Wt. & Bal. of a Tri-Q-200

Stacy Miller <miller9890@...>
 

Hi everyone, I'm new to this, so here goes. Hope I don't mess up to bad. I've had my Tri-Q-200 flying since 1993 & only have about 200 hrs. on it. That's not what I had in mine when I bought the kit back in 1982, but it is reality. It's been great, & it fly's great, but I have had my share of problems. I just replaced the alt. & starter with lighter ones & did a few other things. Now it's time to redo the wt. & bal., & that brings me to my question. Is there anyone with a Tri-Q-200 out there who is willing to share their figures so I can have something to compare with? I haven't weighed it yet, this time around, but I've got a heavy one. Checking may last figures it comes in at 1363 gross. ??? Yes, it handles it fine, but I think it could be (more-better) if the wt. & envelope were t wicked some. Yes it has the extended wings. It'll cruse at 160 mph. ?? I don't know if I'm in the ball-park "so to speak" with a Tri-Q-200 or not. Top speed- I've had
it indicating 216 mph in a decent once or twice, & it feels fine. In fact, it feels solid & smooth at that speed. ??? To bad it has to be in a decent to get that. Ha "STILL WORKING ON IT"
Please advise. Sincerely, Dave

Level problems

Martin Skiby
 

Ok so I need some advise. I purchased my TriQ200 back after many years and damage from Hurricane Hugo (I think). I am replacing the main wing and the entire tail section. Here is my issue. I did not do the smart thing and make a template of the level line from the main wing before I cut it off so now how the heck do I level the plane properly to get the correct incidence in the wing? Remember it is a TriQ so it is on the gear.

Any thoughts on this wouldbe appriciated. Rick I know you are reading this also so please ring in off line.

Thanks all.

Subject: [Q-LIST] Two steps forward one back

Well I went to put the cowl on my airplane and discovered I had a few problems First the smiley on my cowl did not line up with the baffeling work to cool the heads , Second I went to put the top on and the duct work for the baffel was to high in the front. Now cutting this down was simple enough but the fact is that Paus Spackman had done such a beautiful job of making it I really hated to cut it down. It does however turn out that by Pauls example he turned out to be a very good instructor. Now that I have re done the top baffeling I will tomorrow start changing the bottom part of the cowel . I also fixed lobe that was busted for one of the tubes in back , I was concerned that the epoxy took a long time to cure. I mixed it by weight on a scale , could have been the temp was not as warm as it should have been.
Also I cannot wait to fly this because I already get Wat kind of a plane is that. and How many of them are there. Darrell

Re: N1201D

Doug Brablec is the guy who built it in FL. He lives here in Asheville. About a year ago he sold it to a fellow in Arkansas. Just within the last few days Imraan bought it and its back in FL. It had the Tri-Q2 nosegear. That's a tough break for Imraan.

I am very short of time until

Would you like me to send it to you now or in January?

Hey All,
This is just a "quick heads up" LOL!

I am performing a major software upgrade on the QBA website, so I have
to take the site down for a few days.

I will probably have a "limited edition" of the site back up within a
couple of days, and then add back or improve most of the features as I
learn all of the added features over the coming weeks. The plan is to
have everything back online 100% by the next newsletter (December 31st)

The new site will have a different look when I'm finished, and hopfully
you'll find it easier to navigate. If you have any questions, or need
something from the "old" site please e-mail me offlist and I will try to
help out.

I aplologize for any inconvenience, but appreciate your patience.

Re: Another day at the races

Trevor Fernihough <spilligans@...>
 

Very excellent post Sam.
Here in Australia, we do knots and mph and gph here for aircraft stuff, but kilometers/per hour (kph) and litres/hour (L/h) for motor vehicles.
You folk of course use US gallons (4L/gallon if I am correct) while we use imperial gallons (4.5L/gallon)
I can't help myself so end up bringing everything back to kph and L/h and L/110k, as it gives me a referrence to my very
efficient little Honda Jazz which does 5.5L/100k. On your figures of 170mph and 4.5g/h (US) I come up with 6.6L/100k,
which is very economical indeed and not far off my Jazz which is one of the best.
Aint the Q a great little eco machine ?
Mind you it takes some clever bloke like you to tweek it up to get those nice numbers , but non the less you are starting
with the right equipment......a thoroughbred race horse and not a draft horse.
Pity the bloody thing kills so many of it's jokeys when being put back into the stables !

Good on ya mate
