Congratulations Charlie. Everything seemed to run and perform normally, even the pilot. Keep the reports coming!

To all Q list;

First I would like to thank the members of the tandem wing community for
the support. they even let me show up in a Cessna! Thanks to all for the
encouragement and congratulatory posts following my engine runs, taxi runs,
and first flight.

More details: February 5th I went to the airport N-187CD was sitting there
cowl on, tires aired up, main tank full. I had replaced the 52" X 58"
propeller with a 52" X 54" from Tennessee Props Inc. I was getting over 2800 rpm
static. I had previous static runs of 2650 with the 52" X 58" with taxi
runs with 2687 peak rpm. I was thinking I was over the torque curve peak. I
have been operating full rich on the ground and the mixture adjustment seems
to be overly sensitive swinging rich to lean with little movement of the
lever.

The first card of the flight plan: Take off do not screw with mixture,carb
heat, trim ect. Climb to pattern altitude, check temps, climb to 7500 msl
north east of the airport using clearing 360 turns of varying bank angles.
Check temps, slow to pitch bob level attitude. Return to airport to land.

I basically accomplished the card but have a low rpm condition. This may be
mixture or attitude related or too much prop or something else. Still have
39.1 hrs to get it figured out in.

To all you Dragonfly listers out there. I ran out of things to do today
on
the preflight check list. It seemed like there was only one item left so
I
went flying, N-187CD left the ground today for the first time.

The first flight went well with a clearing turn sequence to 7500 MSL east
north east of the Ogden airport. I climbed out at 90 mph. The nose was
heavy
and high. I may want to lower the reflexer a bit to get the tail up. I
flew for about 50 minutes including the taxi out and back to the hanger.
I
have a new prop 52 X 54 which has increased the rpm but I am still not
getting
over 2900 rpm.

Regards,

Charlie Johnson

What no low pass! I know you are busy with 1st flight parameters etc but you must be ecstatic flying that lil' airplane again!!! Engine sounds great and sewing machine smooth! William Wyne must be cheer leading for you! How is cruise compared to the VW? What beautiful scenery! "Honey Lamb" just wants to know if you have cockpit heat up in that cold mountainous setting.Lots of folks pulling for you Charlie. Tell Bob hi and give him a wedgie for me. Hope to see you guys soon.Blessings!Bruce N "Honey Lamb"

Well done, Charlie. I know that engine monitor. It will change screens
when something goes out of limit and you have to poke at it to get what you
want back. There are setup options for selecting your favorite page; you
can get back to it with one click. Make sure your alarm setpoints are
realistic- over-conservative and you'll be chasing them on the display.

What scenery you have! It must be a blessing to flying beside those
wonderful cumulo-granites!

You are right, my bad.
I was steering with my feet trying to get my tach back and did get off
centerline. I finally just had the airspeed and flew it off. Trying to get used
to lots of info on one screen.

I am also going to request the bigger runway.

Revmaster Aviation, best known for VW conversions in experimental aircraft, got
their start in drag racing. Coming full circle, they are currently
testing their latest creation, a 3000cc VW derivative, in a dragster and
unveiled to us on Saturday. Watch for an article on this event in the March
issue of EAA's Experimenter eNewsletter.

https://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=3357023442997

They ran a few tiny burnouts for us with the muffler installed, but for
this run, they removed it to see how loud it would be, but didn't launch
it.

I'll have the launch videos in the March Experimenter.


This is the same Revmaster R-3000 we published in CONTACT! Magazine a few
years ago.

My first Q-2 flight------------------

Mike McGowan
 

My hat is off to Jim Patillo and friends for a wonderful day at Livermore AP in Calif. This is a GREAT bunch of very helpful guys. I am loaded with priceless info and encouragement for my Q-2 project. I am sure that my first flight could have been disastrous without their help.
Jim took me up in his beautiful Q-200 and made many approach to landings showing me the tactics and visuals for a safe landing. What a rocketship, a little Ferrari with wings.
I cant wait to get mine airborne. Moving N71SM to St George (SGU) for flight testing, it's 150x9300 ft. Hurricane AP is only 45x3400 ft.
Thanks again to Jim and the gang at Livermore AP, I will be at the fly-in in Aug for sure. Mike Mcgowan N71SM


Re: Installing a new main wing

Sam Hoskins
 

I raised the TE because the old angle of incidence had problems. I know
this because I was flying it. If you have not flown this aircraft I don't
think you have any basis for making a change.

In addition, my rear wing had already been replaced back in 1987 and the
alignment may not have been perfect back then, so this time around I was
actually correcting the previous repair.

I would be more comfortable striving to insert your wing according to plans.

Has this plane flown? Have you already removed the old wing (I hope not
yet).

If you have not removed the wing, make a couple of dead nuts
accurate templates for the level lines for the old wing AND THE FUSELAGE.
Then transfer to the new wing.

There may be photos in my blog.

I received a very nicely built Main wing from Rick Hole this past week and
it is ready to install. I will need some suggestions on getting the plane
level at this stage. Jay has offered a level fixture that I hope will do
the trick and ease my mind on this. I have the intention of decreasing the
angle of incidence by moving the rear of the wing about 1/8 inch up before
floxing it in. Our previous wing had too much lift and we actually placed
three cuts in the bottom from the aileron to the tip and twisted the wing
up so the tip was about 3/8 up. It made a cool looking wing, but I don't
want to do that again I would rather change the incindence slightly and
avoid the issue all together.

I think Sam also raised his slightly when he installed the new one.

Thanks in advance to the group. I'll keep you all posted. Hopefully not to
much longer before I have her back in the air.

I will put this on my calendar. I am pretty intrepid now that I have my XM

Charlie lately, but wouldn't it be cool if he had flown all of his time off

Re: The Big Muddy Air Race is live! June 9

The number 1 point to remember "The shortest distance between two points is
a straight line". You may laugh, but it's harder than you might think.

Depart Carbondale and hold it down to build speed till you pass the
starting judges at the end of the runway.

Head to the various turn points, usually 1,000' AGL.

The finish is a low pass for the timing judges, then circle to land.

Last year I did SARL Air Racing 101 presentation. I'll send it off line
to you and anyone else who requests it.

It is very very fun.

Hey Sammy is that from a standing start or low approach? Might be fun! I

you enter the departure field in the route 1st or do you enter the 1st leg
in the route?Bruce
