Quickie-like performance video, slightly off topic but interesting

Jay Scheevel
 

I was taught to fly by Stanley Davis. Stanley had 30000 hours, all in small aircraft and was veteran of the glider corps from WWII. His younger brother Leon was an aircraft technician and later an aircraft designer in his own right. He designed the boxy little all metal V-tail, DA-2 that some of you may have seen flying. He was adamant that he could design and build a standard aircraft that would outperform any other even though he only worked exclusively in metal. He was involved in the design and build of the original Windecker Eagle in the early '70's (the first ever FAA standard category certified all-composite aircraft). Leon was fired by Windecker for insisting that Windecker should build the stabilator from aluminum. I met Leon several times and he really was a unique, capable designer. Here is a video-link that proves it. His last design, the DA-11 is highlighted here. It has every bit the performance of the Q-1 on the same horsepower as the Q-1, is all aluminum, and has a standard wing configuration. Hope you enjoy this.

Cowling fade out video

Hi All,
I stuck a video that slowly fades out the cowling, {kinda x-ray looking} at the following location.

Aileron bellcrank

Paul Buckley
 

Hi Paul
 
Looking at your photographs I concur with Bruce Crain and Sam Hoskins.
 
As you have it rigged, with the stick to the right to induce a roll to the right, the right aileron will move down whereas it should move up.
 
Could that fuel tank sensor actually be an inspection port?
 
Why don't you unscrew it and have a look?

Hi Guys,
I took some better pictures of the aileron contrl system and uploaded them to https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Q-LIST/photos/albums/1958465372. There is also what looks to be a fuel tank sensor mounted on the main tank. It has a locknut (level/quantity sensor?) but it does NOT have any wires coming from/to it. Any ideas as to what it could be? Someone bashed two sizeable holes into the tank to fut it but as there is no builders log I am at a loss.
Thanks for your help with this.

All the best
Paul


Hone Cyl?

Mike Dwyer
 

My 0-200A was burning 6-8 Hours per quart of oil.  Now it's more like 3 hours per quart.  I just pulled the plugs and Cyl 1 is wet and the plug black.  The 3 other plugs looked pretty good.  I'm quite sure Cyl 1 is burning that oil.

I'm borrowing my buddies Digital Borescope so I can get a look into the cyl.  I think I have 2-300 hours on it.  If I find it without big gouges, maybe just glazed does anybody have advice on Honing the cyl and putting in new rings.

The Cyl is a Millennium,  I've asked them if I can purchase a set of rings from them.

Thanks!

Cheng Shin Tires 4.00-5

Mike Dwyer
 

Hey all,
Earlier this year I mounted some new Cheng Shin 4.00-5 tires.  One of them cracked extremely badly, vertically up both sidewalls.  Each rib had a crack so there were like 50 big Cracks.  The Date code appears to be 651.  You may want to look thru your tires and junk this lot code!

So I am now out of tires.  Anybody got a source for the Cheng Shins?  Anybody got some you want to sell?

I put a video on YouTube how to balance your tires. 


 These ribbed tires spin in-flight and when your canard starts bobbing up and down you'll wonder what is going on!  Balancing gives a much smoother ride at high speed on the ground and a little brake pressure stops the in-flight spinning.

Fly Safe,

Mike Dwyer

Nice catch Bruce and Sam. 

Paul the guys are right on regarding your aileron controls.  The lever arms at the top of the vertical push pull tubes are to point FORWARD so you get the proper aileron movement.

Paul. Though the photo is blurry, it does look as if your ailerons are connected backwards. Maybe a better photo would show us our error.

Re: Q2 LSA legal?

Rick Hole
 

Registering the plane as LSA is a whole different question and does not apply to an experimental airplane (there is ELSA, but that covers only a homebuilt version of an LSA approved plane.  What we’d be talking about here is registering as Experimental (amateur/homebuilt) and then flying that plane under the Light Sport rule.  The aircraft can be registered under experimental or normal categories and flown under the light sport rule as long as the plane meets the light sport requirements for stall speed, Vh, gross weight limit, etc.

 

It’s a moot point for the Q2, it just ain’t going to make the stall speed minimum.

Good day!

 

I think it very unlikely to be able to classify/register a Q2 as LSA even at first glance.

 

LSA landing config stall limit is 45kts.

Q2 landing speed are nowhere near that.

 

That being said, there are many way smarter and more informed people on this list than me.   Maybe others will chime in with their positions/information.

 

Still, Q2s are at the top of the coolest planes list!

 

Have a good one!

It would take major modification to comply with light sport rules, but then it wouldn’t be a Q2/Q200. I am actually working on such a design using a 64HP Revmaster engine. X-Plane loves it.

Re: Q2 LSA legal?

Patrick Panzera
 

It's doubtful that with the high wing-loading of the Q-2 that you could ever get the stall down to Sport Pilot minimums.

Re: Q200 Aileron Bell Crank Arm

Mike Dwyer
 

I think I get it now.  Bottom line, you need the proper up and down throw on the ailerons. You'll have to look up how many degrees up and down.  Also hold one aileron tight and try moving the other up and down, you should get very little movement, do this with the elevator also.  Fly safe.

Sam H. just stopped by to look over my Q200 and questioned the position of my vertical aileron tubes being attached to the inside holes verses the outer set of holes of the lower reflexor arm.

I see in the reflexor plans there is only one set of holes in the QCSA3 and mine has 4.

Does anyone have a picture or know which set is correct?
