Re: Ground Formation pic, FOD

Hi Jerry,  yes, my hope and my request of the photographer was that he send me all the pics he took, and he took a lot of them, but he only sent me just the one.  I'll get back to him and see if he can send me the others too, or at least one with Charles standing by his plane...  thanks for pointing that out!  I don't think the photographer was actually aware that Charles had slipped back into the squadron, as you both are about equally tall!  :-)

My apologies to Charles for usurping his position beside his airplane in this picture.  I was so hoping that the photographer would select the picture he took subsequently with Charles standing beside his beautiful airplane. 

 

Alan, would it be possible for the photographer to make available the picture with Charles in it so he can rightfully claim his presence at FOD?

Hi Everybody,

The FBO guy who took our plane pic Saturday afternoon finally got it to me, and i wanted to send it along right away.  Turns out, he is also a professional photographer, which explains his official signature at the bottom.  But it is a nice pic and a great momento from the 2017 FOD.  Hope it comes through well for everyone, it's a large file, but great resolution!  I haven't posted pictures here before, so i hope this works.

Thanks again, Paul and Tama, for making this year's fly-in such a great event!

FOD 2017 pictures

Hi all,
I went ahead and uploaded all of the photos Tama and I took at the Field of Dreams event last weekend.  They should be here:
https://photos.app.goo.gl/ZXT2ICFzOc2WSxz63

I don't know if you have to be logged into Google to access them or not, but as far as I know they should all be accessible to everyone.

Enjoy!

How about this one?  Same guy took it, but with Tama's phone.  At least Charles is standing next to his plane!  I'll see if I can upload the rest of my photos in case anyone is interested...

Re: question for Kevin B and other Tri-Q drivers

Jay Scheevel
 

Thanks Kevin,

My plan is to fly with no wheel pants initially for all the reasons you have outlined. I have not built my wheel pants yet. I have a set of the original Scott Swing wheel pants but am not fond of them, so I will build my own later, or maybe install those and build replacements later.

Cheers,
Jay


Re: question for Kevin B and other Tri-Q drivers

Kevin Boddicker
 

Jay,
I have the pants made by Earnest Martin.
That said, I picked up 10mph with all there installed.
I also noticed better rate do climb, better visibility over the nose.
I have been flying the past 16 months without them, as they were not repaired until last week. Even with 90F last weekend my IAS was 140 at 2400 rpm, where it has been 130 IAS without the pants.
Rate of climb is two to three hundred FPM better, minimum. 
I would suggest you fly the first year or so without pants though. Easier to check brake lines, pads, wheel bearings, and dissipates heat better than with pants installed. Might have to crank the brakes some on first landings and beyond.
Hope this helps. 
Kevin

Hi Kevin,

I notice that you flew for a while without your wheel fairings. What kind of speed difference did you find when you had them removed, versus when you were flying with them?  Just curious. If any other Q drivers have also compared, I would appreciate any insight you have. Thanks.

Thanks Jim,

Very much appreciate the encouragement and insight. Looking forward to making that big leap from building to flying (I guess that includes maintenance too :)). Off to more sanding!

Cheers,
Jay


Re: Advice Taken

Jim Patillo
 

Ditto with Jerry,

Just remember Jay, after bringing your creation to life and flight status, the first time it takes flight; will be a memory you will never forget. Especially if you make the first flight. How Exciting!

All of that build time, SAND TIME and mind bending thought is now gone and hundreds if not thousands of craftsmanship hours have been satisfied and are ready to go to work.

Go for it!

Wow did we have a good time!  The only real downside was the weather.  90+ degrees Fahrenheit in late September is about 20 degrees above normal around here.  But the upside is the dome of high pressure that caused those temperatures made for severe clear skies!

Overall we had 19 attendees and 12 airplanes:
3 Q-200 - Sanjay Dhall, Sam Hoskins, Paul Fisher
3 Q-2     - Dave Dugas, Charles Kuhlman, Hardy McDaniel
2 TriQ    - Kevin Boddicker, Bruce Crain
1 Quickie-Terry Crouch
1 Cozy III - Rod Herzig
1 Thatcher CX4 - Earnest Martin
1 Swearingen SX300 - Greg Zimmerman
 
A big surprise was Nancy Marstall driving all the way from North Carolina to attend with Jerry.  Since he broke seven ribs in a motorcycle accident a month ago we didn't think he would make it, but it was great to see them both.

Honey Lamb was there, even though Mrs. Dugas doesn't believe she really exists.  Dave took pictures, we're still not sure if she believes him!

We were glad Charles Kuhlman from Marshalltown Iowa could join us in his Q-2.  He was new to the group, but he seemed to fit right in!  A few of our friends had mechanical or weather problems that prevented them from attending, but we look forward to seeing them next time.

There was a lot of food but because of the temperatures the ice cream Saturday evening seemed to be a particular hit with everyone!  I was surprised how much water and iced tea we went through, but it was good everyone stayed hydrated.

Bruce Crain accepted the task of hosting next year's event.  I hope all of you will consider putting it on your calendar and attending.  The Quickie aircraft are very unique in the homebuilt industry, and their builders and fliers are even more unique!

I hope everyone enjoyed themselves, and thanks again for coming!

Thanks Sam and Jerry for common sense advice. Sometimes that is the hardest type for me to come up with on my own. Purchased a six pack of "friend and neighbor lures" yesterday and had a fun time doing some low altitude negative G aerobatics with my plane (now refering to it as "plane" instead of "project"). Here is proof that it can go inverted. Thanks guys.

Hi Everyone,

I too made it back home safely, pulled in at SFO via Southwest late last night, and still basking in the memories of another great fly-in... i live all year long for these events, and reconnecting with our great friends and learning something each time is such a highlight for me.  Laughs, learning, and levity, and all my thanks to Paul and Tama, and Terry and Kevin too, for all their help. Seeing Terry's Cozy project and the work on Steve Beert's LongEZ  during a drive-out was a highlight once again.  As was our fly-out lunch on Friday to Muscatine, we'll really have to do that next year too! And the barbecue and then the ice cream social were just what the doctor ordered, loved it all!

Thanks all around too, to each and every one who made the trip to Davenport, either in their planes, or by car or by commercial,  you just couldn't have a fly-in without people attending... very much looking forward to next year's event in Oklahoma, that will be great fun, thanks Bruce and HoneyLamb!

Thanks again, Paul and Tama, another terrific event!

All the best,

Alan

Jay,

Alan Thayer & Sam Kittle made it from the west coast but by 737.  I always learn something when coming to this event and this year was no exception.  Paul, Tama & Terry are wonderful hosts.  Kevin also deserves an honorable mention for pitching in whenever needed.

Thanks for the update, Paul. I am sorry that I missed it. I feel like I have no excuse since Nancy drove Jerry all the way there...What a dedicated effort!.

Thanks Bruce and Honey Lamb for volunteering for next year. I definitely have it on my calendar and I like the fact that it keeps moving closer to me. We should be able to talk Paul Spackman into coming, and Lynn French too. Who knows, maybe even some of the west coast crowd...hint...hint.

On the home front, Jerry's genius is about to be usurped by Sam Hoskins genius. I have cried uncle on sanding undersides of wings. I finished filling, sanding and fill-priming the upper surfaces of all wings, and I am now prepared to pay some homeless guys to be my friends for 15 minutes and help me turn my plane over tomorrow afternoon. Then I can finish those undersides then transport it for final prime, one more light sanding, then shiny white urethane. I am being overtaken by excitement, and thanks to nobody showing up to help sand, my upper body is getting really pumped!

Thanks for the tip Jimmy, but you gotta pay for that stuff and I am trying to save up for avionics. My wife gets free baked potatos where she works, so I am still eating :-)  Hope you feel better quick.
