Kevin,

You actually got reported as a drone?

Well in Ogden they report the news a little better. Here is the EAA young
eagles flight coverage.

I do not know any one in the video.

Marysville gathering

Patrick Panzera
 

Hey gang!

So far I've not heard from my tandem-winged friends.

With Livermore so close to Marysville (maybe 45 minutes by Q) I would have
thought that several of you would have already hit me up for a free pass.

The offer still stands:
http://www.contactmagazine.com/roundup.html
Free admission, prime parking, ground support, a welcomed place to hang
out... good times by all!

Re: Super Quickie-brakes

quickieaircraft
 

MTB disc brakes have been used successfully on ultralights and slow airplanes.

Bringing a 500lb plane from 80 mph to rest is more demanding than bringing a ~300 lb bike from 20mph to rest. I would look carefully at heat buildup, as brakes are sized according to this. The disc is much thinner and the device much lighter. If there is a whole lot of reserve capacity in the current brakes, then we may be able to afford to reduce (a lot of) weight via using MTB brakes.

As another issue, the pads in MTB brakes are quite a bit thinner and a bit more difficult to inspect.

The installations I've seen have been cable installations (Avid mechanical), but oil-based brakes are considered more powerful (look at the Hayes models).

I'd keep typing but then I'd have to reply to Qperf.

Alternative Engine Round-Up #9

Patrick Panzera
 

Friends,

It's a little over a week away- and there's no reason this can't be a
tandem-wing reunion. We have a nice north-facing insulated hangar so it
should be rather comfortable in the building, several of the engine topics
will be on engines that can be used in the Q or DF, Revmaster will be there
with their new 2300cc engine offering- it should be a great time!

CONTACT! Magazine has been sponsoring a free fly-in for several years. It's
moved around a little, and last year it moved once again. This year it will
continue to be held in conjunction with the Golden West Fly-in (as it was
last year) in Marysville California and will be held on Saturday, June 9th,
2012.

http://www.ContactMagazine.com/roundup.html<http://www.contactmagazine.com/roundup.html>


The catch? In order for it to be free, you must fly in with an experimental
aircraft that has an "alternative engine" and be willing to put it on
display with the others. This will entitle you and the occupants who flew
in with you to attend the fly-in for free. And for those of you who has an
experimental (data plate removed) hot-rod Lycoming, Continental, or any
number of non-certified, non-auto conversion engines (UL, Jabiru, Hirth,
Deltahawk, etc.) we consider those an "alternative engine" too. Please
visit http://www.ContactMagazine.com/roundup.html<http://www.contactmagazine.com/roundup.html>
for
preregistration information


If you are flying-in with an aircraft powered by a Sube, Corvair, Rotary,
Viking, or any other auto conversion and would like to present a forum (or
even if you are currently building one and can't bring it- or CAN bring it
on a trailer), please contact me. Editor@... We'd love to
include you in the fun!



And so that those who can't make it to the show this year won't feel left
out, here's some free stuff: http://www.contactmagazine.com/FreeLunch.html

A couple guys tinkered with go-cart brakes years ago but if they were successful they didnt write
about it. A couple of them look do-able tho.... and technology never sleeps.so look around.

April, May building progress

Jay Scheevel
 

Hi All,

Just to prove that I have not fallen off the wagon again. I have loaded a couple more time-lapse videos to You-tube in order to illustrate my slow steady progress. Elevators installation, pitot system installation, and fabrication and installation of a new design for the canard root, should increase the elevator efficiency and cut down on drag at the elevator/fuselage intersection.

Links are: http://youtu.be/mDo6t2kM5VM
and http://youtu.be/00J2hVNqEPs

Cheers,
Jay Scheevel -- Tri-Q still building.

Subject: [Q-LIST] Flight report


 
Ok Mike, Here it is,
The last week of April I cranked up the ol' Q and flew from Asheville,
NC to Olatha, KS, just outside of KC, to visit a sick relative. Had
been trying for 2 wks to make the trip but as usual wx was a problem.
Finally got a break and headed west after the fog lifted at noon. Had
to tiptoe around the buildups to get out of the valley and then it was
clear with great visibility.

Only problem, I had a 45-70mph headwind at all altitudes from
3-8,500msl. Never saw more than 115mph GS. As a result the flight
turned into 2 fuel stops vs 1. It also had me chasing sunset since I
got off late. I was within 60 miles of my destination when darkness
overtook me. Having not planned on a night flight and having never
landed the Q in the dark, I decided to land while there was still a beam
of light. Sedalia, MO was to be the spot.

Sedalia is a small town with the airport in the boonies. Naturally
there was no one there. I am stumbling around in the dark trying to
figure out how I was going to stretch out in the Q for the night when a
pickup drove up from nowhere. The guy asked if he could be of help
(silly question).
I mentioned my biggest concern was somewhere to stow the Q overnight
since thunderstorms are quite frequent in those parts. He then
suggested that we put the Q in his hangar. GREAT. I followed him to
his hangar which was HUGE. As the doors opened, there was a Citation,
Pilatus and Decathelon sitting inside. the floor was so clean I could
literally see my reflection. He motioned for me to roll the Q in. Not
wanting to mess up the floor I was considering carrying the Q in and
just setting it down. Needless to say, I was appreciative.

Then he asked if he could take me into town to a motel. He suggested
one where he gets a corporate discount. Got the suite for $49.00.
Then he asked if I would like for him to pick me up in the morning to
take me back to the airport. This guy turned into an angel. At 8:00
the next morning he was waiting for me in the lobby.

I fueled up and was on my way for the short leg to KC. Had a great
visit with my cousin and his family for a couple of days and headed
back. The wx was sucky while I was there. Not my usual luck, but the
day I wanted to leave, the wx was "ok" around KC and went clear about 50
miles to the east. I launched for Southern IL. Stayed at about 1500AGL
for the 50 miles and then the sky opened up for clear run to the
mountains of NC.

When I got to altitude, I was now seeing 193mph GS. Can't believe I
didn't get a headwind coming home too.

About 15 minutes out on a 2+ hr leg I noticed that when KC Center keyed
the mic to talk with me or any other plane I could hear an ELT beacon.
Didn't hear it when I transmitted. I switched over to 121.5 and heard
nothing. This continued until got off of KC freq. As I contacted the
tower to land, I could barely make out above the sounding beacon that I
was transmitting 121.5. Oops. I landed, jumped out to get to my ELT
behind the seat and set it to OFF. I could see the tower operator and
he was motioning for me to turn it off. Put the switch in every
position and it kept transmitting. So I disconnected the antenna and it
stopped. I pulled it out to inspect. While removing the batteries, I
heard something sliding around inside it. It appears that the switch
came apart. Haven't cut it to see yet. At any rate, I am now a
customer for a $600 406mhz ELT. WONDERFUL.

Refuel and made it on home without further ado. Those thunder bumpers
where still hanging around the mountains near Asheville, but
circumnavigated them. Cross-country flying always produces wonderful
experiences (some more wonderful than others). The Q performed
beautifully (another anomaly for me).

There you are Mike and the gang.
