Like I said you're gonna love it. I do not miss pulling the engine to adjust and or replace the mags. 

Heading for Ukiah in Northern CA today to attend a Veterans Day flyin. Suppose to meet up with Sam Kittle there. Should be fun.

I was unable to use the lightspeed engineering system, because I still needed a trigger for the fuel injection timing, and they both occupied the same real estate on the crankshaft flange.

I have a redundant electrical system with two Odyssey batteries of equal size. I don't remember the amperage, but I can start the engine on either battery. Since I also got rid of the carburetor and use power to fuel injectors it takes about 14 amps to stay in the air, hence, the big batteries.

Hi Sam,

I've been running dual Lightspeed Plasma 3's for many years. You will notice greater mileage and faster speeds at altitude. You will also be able to idle at 450 rpm, which is good for shorter runways.

It's been a long time since I removed my engine (can't remember when) and that was only to replace an alternator gasket. You will not miss the mags, I promise!

What size back up battery did you use? Mine is a 7.2 Panasonic. The main battery is a Concord 25 amp RG.

I just finished completely switching over to electronic ignition and I did a little write-up on it.  Check out the two most recent posts.

Very very interesting. I didn’t hear about that. What a time for the downwind engine to fail…I guess we know what the crosswind limit is in that situation now. At least the pilot was OK.

If you scroll down Wasabi’s Facebook page far enough you’ll eventually see their posts about the TWERP - very interesting. One of my favorites.

Thanks group.  I think we have some more playing around to do with spacing etc...


Re: Noisy Wheels/Brakes and weight and balance

Jim Patillo
 

I agree with Calvin. My Q200 doesn't make any noise either when pushing it around. I have the "LaRue" brake mod. When I set it up I also used washers behind the plates to true up the puck/disc. It just takes a little time to get it right.

Re: Noisy Wheels/Brakes and weight and balance

Calvin Thorne
 

I do not speak up on this group often but I have a GU canard with the conventional wheels.  During my rebuild I had played with the wheel/brake mating quite a lot.  The wheel is positioned by the through axle and my Airheart brake system is mounted to the inner wall of the wheel pant.  I had to use various numbers of washers on the upper and lower brake mounts to get the wheel to track without dragging.  My Q2 (Revmaster) makes almost no noise when rolling except for very light rubbing of the brake puck on the disc.   If you want I can email you my line drawing of my wheel and waher setup, each wheel is requires different waher numbers.

Jay,
Yes, Colorado is a bit far for me to drive. I have a nice who occasionally travels to Colorado. She likes your new "weed" laws. I'm not into that sort of thing. However, I could catch a ride there, and demand I drive back......
I'll check the links out, and thanks again.

Hi Norm,

I am in western Colorado, so not very close to you. I do not have a build log online, per se. I have a video channel that shows time-lapse of a number of my build steps. Mike Dwyer has a build log from from his construction eons ago and Sam Hoskins also has a nice blog with a lot of info. I also did an aerodynamic study of the Q recently that may be of interest to you. Links for all of these are below.

Cheers,
Jay
