$500 Q2

mylittlemgb <mylittlemgb@...>
 


Just to put everyone at ease the $500 Q2 is just a very incomplete fuselage shell with a set of plans. The plane was started then the builder passed away about a year or so ago. They can't find any of the foam or metal parts just a started fuselage shell.

Tail wheel geometry

Sam Hoskins
 

From Mike D.s posting: http://www.pielandings.com/q200/tailwheel.html

The only reason I have my tailwheel directly in trail is to minimize drag and I believe there is a penalty in handling. I have even considered going to a smaller diameter wheel. 

I once taxied Jim Patillio's Q-200 around and it handled better than mine.

I posted side on top and several other pics of my tail wheel, here on Q-list photos section "GOBOXY"  next to Sam Hoskins.   I can send direct to you if you want.

Sam,
I have my Quickie listed on Barnstomers at an embarrassing price and no takers.  Soon it may be down to $500.

Re: Revmaster 2100 Exhaust

Jeff
Your idea would put the hot exaust too close to your carb intake. Don't change the original design. Just my opinion, but I think you'd be asking for big trouble.

Subject [Q-LIST] Revmaster 2100 Exhaust


 

I ordered a new stainless steel exhaust from Revmaster. When I bought the plane two months ago, there was no exhaust on the plane. 

They tell me that the exhaust will exit the plane on the left rear side of the cowl. I can see on the cowl that the last user of this bird sealed up that old hole. The body work is not yet painted. 
So I asked Revmaster if they could custom build me an exhaust that would exit strait down and back at the rear of the cowling where there is already a lump in the cowl for the exit of cooling air. 
Any input on this? Am I correct for trying to save a small amount of drag that may be caused from the exhaust exiting the left side of the cowl? Would it work out for me to have the exhaust exit the cooling air exit hole? 
Am I wrong for trying to re-invent the wheel here? I also think it would look nicer of that would possibly work.

Yes Sam, I know, it sounds strange, I will check again to be sure that what I am seeing is real. If I can figure out how to get pictures uploaded from my iphone onto this site, I will post some. Thanks for your input.

Interesting, never heard of a CF Q-2.  What portion did you examine?  Fuselage, wing?

Are you sure it's not the paint primer?  The original finishing method called out for a black primer that was designed to protect the epoxy from UV. Maybe that is what you are seeing.

Why is my Q-2 outer layer appear to be made from Carbon Fiber? 


The person i bought it from said it was built of carbon fiber, I didn't believe him so I sanded, and/or pealed a few spots and see that it is, from the out side, Carbon fiber. But from the inside, it looks traditional, glass. 

I heard that Carbon fiber could be 4 times stronger if done right from the start vacuum bagged and all, however, if not done correctly it may only be 50% stronger. 

Anyone want to help me understand this?

Landing a Q

Jim Patillo
 

Good afternoon Mike,
Thank you for the compilation of the different planes' tailwheel-tailspring geometry we have in the fleet. So it looks like the safest way (for a newbe or maybe others depending on the configuration) is to land it 3 point. The only problem with a second or third hand plane is it has probably been modified in some form or fashion. Having said that, understanding what you have before getting it airborne is an important area for a pilot to be aware of. I think we learned something on this one.

Again if properly configured, there should be absolutely no reason for a Q to divert from the runway.

Laughlin Trip

Jim Patillo
 

Hello everyone,
I would like to congratulate Tom Hall on his first successful cross country in the US, to our get together in Laughlin, NV.  this past weekend. Tom you have a very nice Dragonfly and the added effort you put into your plane to get it to this point does not go unnoticed, even when sitting close to all those Black Hawk helos.

As far as I can tell, we all had a real good time, so it looks like we may start up another Fly In there, next year in April. I talked with the General Manager at Landmark Aviation and they are more than happy to host the event. This weekend they were hosting a Mooney event.

Instead of a Tandem Wing Fly In,  maybe we  we just open it up to all our aviation friends on the west coast and beyond. Having a place for the ladies to get together is a definite plus and gives us more time for hangar talk! 
Regards,
Jim Patillo N46JP - Q200
Almost 50 years as a pilot in command and still lovin' it!
