That's not right. Can you provide a link? I will straighten it out if it is wrong.

2nd place. 202 mph, with headwinds. I think it was about 450 nautical  miles.

202 mph average, 237 miles, not bad for a 120 hp Q!

Good going!

Congrats.

Sam,

So how did you do? Did you make us proud? Any weather?

I'm about to saddle up and head for the Bay Area. Outside air temperature now 101 degrees.

Saddle Washers

That looks similar to saddle washers that I have used on pipe connections, the Microlight guys use them a lot. Style is similar AS1903 to AS1905, although there are some steel versions around but don't know the number.

They are better as the bolt has a flat surface to press against. I think SkyRanger uses something similar.

Chris Brown has been building an original Q2 for a while. He ended up in my area so we went for a buzz in the Dragonfly. I showed him the elevator mod and he took some pictures, but the pictures and explanation that Charlie has posted are the same thing I did. No slop. Canada Chris

Hello Q-friends,  I want to share some news with you.  For some time now I have been working on developing a flying car, and immersed deeply in this exercise. in this effort I have also benefited from the help from a couple of Q builders in this list. 
Departing for OSH tomorrow, I expect to bring an early concept prototype to Oshkosh airventure 2017. The prototype will be on display in the innovation center. See below link:

I seek your support.  To learn more please visit the Detroit Flying Cars booth,  the website DetroitFlyingCars.Com, and the Detroit flying cars Facebook page. 
Thanks

I think that Charlie Johnson put a picture of this on the Dragonfly list. I will see if I can find it and post it here. The Q-2 uses AN4 bolts on the elevator, and is considerably shorter (meaning less area) than the D-Fly. I have not heard of flutter in the Q-2 elevator, at least not when the mass balance is installed. Anyone else heard of a case of flutter with the Q-2?

Cheers,
Jay Scheevel, Tri-Q, still building


Re: Don't know name [2 Attachments]

Hi all,

This welded torque tube attachment to elevators is a mandated change to the Dragonfly plans.

It is easy to do the problem is not the fit of the pinned connection, it is the bearing strength of the aluminum. The allowable load can be calculated if you know the load. That is where things go south, with little margin of safety it only takes one slammer to elongate your carefully reamed holes. You are now in flutter city with slop in the control  system in the air hopefully you will make it home.

Another thing without the end plywood rib, you are transferring 100% of your control air load to the torque tube first through 2 lb styrofoam, then the great un-inspectable bond you made from the core to the torque tube.

My elevator skin loads go directly into the root bulkhead which is captured with blind closed nutplates. The loads are carried through by the friction and clamping forces of the two bolts. The bolts are not in shear. 

Really want to convince yourself calculate the allowable bearing load on a .049 inch thick aluminum 6061 tube.

My only saving was my connection steel/aluminum corroded into one mass.

Regards,

Charlie Johnson
