Thanks Sam,

I will try some micro mesh soon and let you know how it went. I kinda thought that was what I needed to do but wasn't lookin' forward to all the elbow grease!

Thanks Bruce, it's always fun to compare like machines. Hopefully other experienced TriQ drivers will chime in. Just for the record, you have a pumped up 0200?

Hope you two are enjoying retirement! To bad we are so far apart. It would be nice to visit you guys occasionally.


Best,

COPPERSTATE Engine Forums

Friends,

The 44th Annual COPPERSTATE Fly-In
Aviation & Education Expo is coming up quick.

October 28th & 29th to be exact.

 

It has a new location this year, they're now at Falcon Field Airport - Mesa, AZ

CONTACT! Magazine has been a long-time supporter of this grass roots fly-in, hosting alternative engine forums all week long, in addition to being a vendor. This year will be no different.

We have a few time-slots available for those who are interested in presenting an educational forum on alternative engines in homebuilt aircraft. If you are interested in presenting such a forum, please email me privately so that we don't clutter up this email group.


My email address is:
Editor@...

We have several great forums already scheduled so even if you aren't interested in presenting a forum, please consider attending. Of particular interest will be Pegasus Power, the 1/2 O-200, in flying trim installed in the Cracker Jack LSA ready to begin flight testing,
and Revmaster's R-2300 Turbo ground test unit.

Both of these engines should be available for running demonstrations. 

And if you are flying in with an alternative engine, but aren't the forum presenter type, please let me know - maybe we can just have an impromptu gathering at your plane where you can do a Q&A. 

The event's website: 
http://www.copperstate.org

And as usual, I apologize if you get this more than once. It just means that you and I are on multiple email groups together.


....and PLEASE forward this to other groups if you feel the information is worthwhile. 


Thanks!

Pat

I'm 99% sure the Micro Mesh is the fix.  Watch videos first and maybe call MM direct before you start. Lots of elbow grease.

Sam, they are not really scratches but more like the size of sand hits. Kind of hard to explain  So small I can't feel them with fingernail swipe but when they catch the light just right you can see them.

I don't have data on a triangular course.  Presently on vacation.  When I return I'll conduct a test.

Hi Jerry,


You, Earnest and Bruce have a lot of experience in TriQ's with 0200's. What kind of speeds are you getting in a triangulated course at 5,000'?

Just curious,

Re: Canopies

Jim I am with Sam on the canopy, we don't offer them because we can not match the quality of Airplane Plastics in Tipp City, OH not to mention they are super nice to work with. The issue you are seeing was explained to me as the canopy is drying out and getting more brittle which let's little strikes create pits. Most of the time a fine micro polish will clear most of it and add life. Be careful of buffer speed and heat because it can create a fog or haze.

Thanks for that input but the plexiglas is smoke tinted and clear. It's not fogged like old plastic headlights. You only see this refraction when sunlight hits it just right. Anyone else had this happen? No chemical exposure that I know of. 1320 hours on the hour meter.

What about either a nice dual action buffer with super fine compound or a headlight restoration kit?

Cameron, I think that qualifies your plane as aerobatic if I'm not mistaken.

Jerry, sorry I missed you. Would have been nice to meet someone from the community. Were you out here for something airplane related or no?

Mine has an excellent climb rate and fuel burn: It went from the hangar floor to being suspended from the ceiling while I'm on my eternal quest to redo the new slick wheel pants and re-assemble stuff. During this time I've used quite a bit of fuel driving to the airport, but at low cruise speeds, like around 60-ish. A couple times I went faster.

Ryan,  My son and I have one and it does very well.  125 mph at 1000FPM climb.  We also get 160kts cruise out of it.  I have videos to show as well.  It was built as a conventional plane and I converted.  It has always done well and I am happy to discuss with you any time.

Hello Cameron:  it is so good to get a report from you on your project. Keep at it!  Are you flying the other aircraft?
