Good looking aircraft, Matthew. Keep up the careful work towards flying. Looking at your prop, it looks like a Prince. Is that right? If so, what is the length and pitch?

Cheers,
Jay Scheevel, Tri-Q, still building

I really hope that the airplane and I will good to make it by then but if not I will either fly my Aventura over or something else. Thanks for the warm welcome!

Matthew, welcome to the Q family!  You didn't mention where you are located, but your area code indicates Detroit area.  I hope you can make it to Davenport in September.  It would be great to see you and your airplane (if you are comfortable with it by then).  Otherwise a road trip would be worth it!

Hello,


I'm thinking this will be a decent enough time to introduce myself for now and hopefully I will be able to do so in person at this fly in. I purchased a Q-200 that originally received it's airworthiness certificate in '86. It and another Q-200 were built in unison by a couple of gentleman on our field and has also been in the area since then (same owner). It has 230 hours on it but has been parked in a hangar for the past 15 years. I have spent the last couple of months doing a very thorough annual inspection, including removing the tail section and all control surfaces for inspection and any corrosion on hardware / control linkages. I also removed the engine and inspected the cam and cylinders. The great news is everything is in really good condition. I did replace all of the wiring, really just to clean it up, and replaced all of the fuel system. I hate to be the guy that re-does aesthetic stuff before flying the thing but I did re-do the interior while I had the dash off for the electric and fuel system and put a fresh coat of paint on her. It is getting very close to flying, mostly I just want to check / modify the alignment with David Gall's procedure and then get the logbooks signed off. I had the pleasure of speaking with Sam Hoskins at Air venture this past week and he gave me some really good information as I prepare for the (second) first flight. I do want to add differential breaks per Sam's advice but I am going to have some interference with the controls for throttle, carb heat, mixture, and cabin heat all being in that area. I may push that off - scared to even say that I hope I don't regret it.


That's the airplane, as for me - I'm 27 years old, mechanical engineer. I built an Aventura II amhib that made its first flight 2 years ago. It's a blast for flying low and slow over the water -the complete opposite of the quickie's MO.  I learned to fly in a Pietenpol and I have 250 hours in the past 3 years - all tailwheel. I'm going to get some time in a friends (CFI) Thorp T-18 and also spend plenty of time taxi testing so I can get comfortable with the ground handling of the Quickie and a taildragger that flys and lands fast. 


Very happy to find an active group of Quickie builders and operators! We are all aware of some of the hazards of the quickie as far as first flights go so any advice or recommendations you all have I am more than happy to listen to!


Thanks,

I hope all of you are getting excited for the Flyin this year.  Based on the casual conversations with a number of people, we should have a pretty good turn out of airplanes this year!  If you are still building, this is the time to see Quickie, Q-2, and TriQ aircraft up close and personal, so please consider attending. We'll be at the Davenport Iowa airport (KDVN) at hangar E5 - you should be able to spot the Q birds parked nearby!

Most people arrive on Friday, so we may do a fly out lunch to Muscatine (KMUT).  It's really just an excuse for me to fly, but the fly out lunches to Keen NH were great fun in the past, so I thought we would try it again here.

Saturday is the big day, so if you can't make it on Friday, try to make it in by Saturday. If we can get people to stop flying and giving rides long enough, we'll have a cook out at the airport, so nobody should go hungry!

Sunday is typically departure day, but I plan to spend the entire day at the airport, so you are welcome to stay as long as you like!

If you haven't made hotel reservations, I arranged a special rate at the Quality Inn in Davenport.  Call 563-386-8336 and mention the "Quickie Builders" group. Flyers

Sounds amazing. Sadly I won't make it since I'm in that category of not flying yet. 13hrs is a long drive from Colorado. Hope everyone has a great time though? If anyone is stopping in Colorado springs on their way let me know. I'll buy lunch!

Most people arrive on Friday, so we may do a fly out lunch to Muscatine (KMUT).  It's really just an excuse for me to fly, but the fly out lunches to Keen NH were great fun in the past, so I thought we would try it again here.

Saturday is the big day, so if you can't make it on Friday, try to make it in by Saturday. If we can get people to stop flying and giving rides long enough, we'll have a cook out at the airport, so nobody should go hungry!

Sunday is typically departure day, but I plan to spend the entire day at the airport, so you are welcome to stay as long as you like!

If you haven't made hotel reservations, I arranged a special rate at the Quality Inn in Davenport.  Call 563-386-8336 and mention the "Quickie Builders" group. Flyers - you will not need ground transportation, I'll make sure everyone gets to and from the airport.

I'm sending this to the Q-list, but if anybody knows any Dragonfly folks, please pass this invitation along to them as well.  We always have a good time when we get together, so all flyers and builders are most welcome!

Feel free to contact me directly for any questions, comments, or suggestions.

Guys,

How much do you pay for a kit built aircraft now ?? $140,000 seems quite steep, cheaper to buy a Helicopter !!

Just ran the numbers through N81QA-based Q-200 model using CG=FS 44", GW 1100 pounds, LS-1 canard, out of ground effect. "Plans built" decalage of 0 degrees.

With standard length wings (span:200", total wing area:67.2 sq. ft.) Vmin: 70.1 mph CAS

With long wings (span: 240", total wing area: 78.3 sq. ft. ) Vmin 67.1 mph CAS

So, it looks like extending the wingspan an additional 40 inches results in reducing the Vmin by 3 mph (about 4%), at least according to my model.

On the high end (at ~105 HP), the difference is about 6 mph (shorter wings faster). 186 vs. 180 mph CAS

Cheers,
Jay Scheevel, Tri-Q, still building

I would echo what Imraan says about envelope, especially on the low end. The Q's minimum velocity is more related to the tandem wing configuration and not so much related to the additional wing area of the waddelow wings. This is essentially for the same reason that you cannot fully stall the configuration (only pitch buck).  I suspect that the primary difference resulting from the longer wing is that there is a reduction in the maximum sink rate at Vmin. Just my 2 cents worth.

Cheers,
Jay Scheevel, Tri-Q, still building

Paul,

You're on my calendar as well.  A 1300nm camping XC did a lot to help me stretch my Q legs and I definitely missed attending FoD last year.

Ryan,
Marc Waddelow's work was primarily structural, centered around composite laminate plate analysis.  This analysis was the basis for a gross weight increase--you can find more detail in the Waddelow build documentation that Dan Yager graciously made available in QTalk 159 (http://www.quickheads.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2353).

I am not aware of a substantive aerodynamic analysis for increased span wings.  A quick simplified "back of the envelope" approximation appears to overestimate the effects on both ends of the envelope.

All that to say, I am happy with the plane.

Best,
IF

I have a Q2 that I am converting to a Q200. So far I have been hell bent on keeping it as a tail dragger but you guys have me questioning my logic. I work for Velocity so buying the parts to convert is easy. I am out of the country at the moment but I will be back in a month or so. I will for sure get in touch with you guys to talk about the Tri Q idea.

Imraan/Bruce,
Now that you both have a flying buddy, I hope you both can make it to the FOD flyin in September.  Davenport (KDVN) isn't that far at your speed.  Hope to see you then!

Jay,

You are correct. The Tri-Q does gives some options for different wings.

I can't speak to Bruce's wing length, but my wings are built using the optional 240" specification by Marc Waddelow that raises the aircraft gross weight.   Finished, they measure ~241" tip to tip.  Bruce's canard is a Waddelow as well.  

I'm thoroughly enjoying and looking forward to having a QExpert so nearby. Bruce has been invaluable in making this project fly.

Best,
IF
