Hi Jim,

Thanks for the continuing encouragement. I am in the final stages of the "get er done"... will keep you posted.

Cheers,

Saw this too. My son has become proficient with this because it is a requirement for mechanical engineering program that he is in. I think I may get it and force him to teach me while he still feels some gratitude for putting him through college :-)

As I was going through some stuff I came across this. I don't have any experience with 3D drafting, but this would be interesting to learn.  Just wanted to share with you folks.

I looked at E-mag P-mag and Oshkosh.  It looks like something that might work for you.  They said it would work with an Electro-air ignition so maybe.....
It is really tempting!

Thanks Jim.

We had the benefit of a little tail wind. On the other hand I had a miss in my Slick magneto and probably wasn't developing full power.

The AVC race is a lot of fun and most anyone can do it in any aircraft.

I pulled the engine today and got a good  look at the mag.  There was a major carbon build up and I think the source may have been a tiny oil leak -  not sure.

Now have to decide if I want an overhauled Slick and harness for about $800 or go with something electronic for another grand.

I had been planning on making this my last year in the big race,  and maybe even Oshkosh,  but when I did it all I just got too fired up to quit.

Good afternoon Aviators,

 

I've been flying the "Qmuter" back and forth between Livermore and Auburn CA. for the last 2 years now, alot of times more than once a week, sunshine and rain. What a thrill to run down to the Bay Area for a quick check on the business or see friends and be back home by noon to tranquillity (big bass on our own lake) and I like to fish!

 

I definitely feel blessed to be able to have flown my Q steadily since August 2000 without any major issues. It seems the longer I run it, the smoother it gets. Just had to share the continued excitement! Building and flying the Q has been a very rewarding experience for me personally. You fellas still struggling to get er done, don't give up.........just do it. You won't be sorry.

 

PS. Sam H. you da man', really good numbers this time! Bob M. would be proud of you. You have done a lot for our community. Thanks.  

 

Regards,

Jim Patillo

Thanks Jay. I was hoping that would be the case. Gives me some insight as to how much stock to put in the numbers for future planning.

Re: Service ceiling

Jay Scheevel
 

I can tell you that most will confirm that those curves are close for currently flying aircraft except Sam Hoskins' and maybe Reg Clarke's.

Reg is running a turbocharged Subaru engine and is probably getting north of 130 HP. He can confirm, but I think this is accurate.

Sam has so much reduced his drag and tweaked his O-200 engine and prop to the point that his performance curve lies very much above what I sent you. He averaged 216+ MPH on the Airventure cup this year and I would guess his WOT RPM when racing is close to 3100 giving him maybe 120 HP, but this is a closely guarded secret, I'm sure ;-)

My chart is based on modeling that was calibrated directly to rigorous flight test data for the Q-200 prototype N81QA (had a stock O-200 engine) based on Tom Huffman's flight tests of N81QA performed in 1984.

If you want more info on my modeling, you can go to: http://www.quickheads.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2402&Itemid=801

So everyone is being very generous with posting their personal experience with their individual setups as far as performance goes. Earlier Jay posted a performance chart for HP vs. speed for level flight. Im curious if you all find that your performance is pretty close to the calculated numbers?


Re: Service ceiling

faa.gov n-number lookup.


Re: Service ceiling

Richard,
Maybe you should sell Ryan one of your fancy new UL engines! I am sure that would make it into a very nice flying machine.

Cheers,
Jay


Re: Original Q-1 Prop Airfoil, Diameter and Pitch

QAC offered 3 props, 42/27, 42/30, 44/27. Cowley was the manufacturer. No idea about the airfoil.

Does anyone have the specs for the original Q-1 prop on the Onan engine?

Thanks,

Re: Service ceiling

Jay you are correct Foss was the builder. The FAA'S website isn't up to date yet we did get the plane reregistered and ownership transferred.


Re: Service ceiling

ryan goodman
 

Interesting. How did you find out the info?


Re: Service ceiling

Jay Scheevel
 

Did a little sleuthing and I think this is the airplane. Built by Weston Foss, A/W date 1987.  Registration appears to have expired in 2015, which means it will have to be re-registered. Not really sure how that is done.  At the minimum, I think would need a FAA Aircraft Bill of Sale signed by Steven Vandergrift, since it was last registered to him.

Re: Service Ceiling

I am installing a Jabiru J3300, significantly modified, with upgrades from Rotec Aerosport and CAMIT (both in Australia).

There are a number of slightly used J3300's that are available now and may be quite reasonably priced, since quite a few Jab owners have chosen to replace theirs with the CAMIT 3300.

The CAMIT is a bolt-on replacement for the Jab, and is pretty much the same engine with the exception that it has some rigorously engineered and tested changes to the Jab components addressing most if not all of the identified shortcomings of the Jab that have proven unreliable under hard use. CAMIT has always had joint ownership of the Jab design and used to be the sole supplier of parts and completed engines before they (Jabiru) decided to outsource to cheaper suppliers. CAMIT decided to go out on their own and offer complete engines featuring their upgraded version of the Jab design. They control all sourcing, manufacturing and testing in-house. According to all I have heard from (in addition to personal experience), CAMIT has brilliant customer service and have I have not heard a peep about any problems with their engines. I hear some have more than 1000 hours on them now in South Africa with no problems.

That said, properly cared for Jabiru's have also proven very reliable, if you stay on top of the care and feeding and maintenance checks and make sure your cooling is adequate. You may be able to find a bargain on a used Jab if you look around. They are capable of producing 105 HP at 85% power, (@2750 rpm ~5000 ft density altitude) and are significantly lighter than the O-200.
