Re: Strainers

Chris Walterson
 

Jim---------  The reason I ask about the strainers, is that they look  like a step to look inside to a 10 year old.
 On another topic, I was reading some of the old newsletters and saw where one fellow added another 2 degrees of incidence into his canard on his Q200 to get it to fly better.
Should I change the incidence.? I have read nowhere else , others having problems. I have the digital levels and all the lazers so I can get it very precise. I would think built to plans is fine.
 Seeing as Sam has just finished his new canard,  and he gets SPEED , maybe he can speak up.
For another update.  I have my fuselage together with  the tail spring, stab and rudder installed.[ Mass balanced]. Have the header and main tank installed. Did a balloon test on both tanks and came back successfully.
 I have the reflexor built and the tail detachable. Elevators and ailerons finished. Starting to manufacture the dual control setup
Canopy hinges next.  Any body want any pictures let me know and I'll send them along. Still having fun---------- Canada Chris

Why would you do that Chris? The strainers seem to work quite well in the original position. Just curious.

I am attaching a photo of the strainers on my dragonfly. They are about fourteen inches from the elevator tip. Any reason why I can't install them on the Q200 in the same position?  Curious Chris

Costco sells 2 down throws for $40 look for them.  They make excellent travel blankets and pack up very small and are light. Check it out.

I am enjoying the best winter I ever had 67 today 75 tomorrow.

They are starting a new row of hangars at E95 and I am on the list to rent one. Hope to get my Dragonfly down here next summer.

Hi Sam,

Point taken. I am not displacing this site, but if this one blows up, the other is already set up, ready to go. If nothing else it will serve as an interim jump to something more to everyones liking. It is all ready to go now, and cost nothing. Kind of like that second magneto...well I know you no longer have a magneto, so a second electronic ignition, in your case. 

Cheers,
Jay

Re: New Q Site

Sam Hoskins
 

I don't mean to butt in too much here, but I think starting a new user type group is a little premature. As of right now, this Yahoo group is not broken. 

There is already a forum type section on Quickheads,  which as far as I know never really took off. 

Of course, there isn't anything preventing anyone from starting whatever they want, but if you do, make sure please fill a need. Last time I checked, we has over 800 names on this list. 

Also, the Google Group format isn't a fix-all. If we do have to officially migrate from Yahoo, the other alternatives should be examined to get the best bang for our buck.

I got the picture at the bottom of your email.
I've been doing the hair dryer thing since the 80's.  Long ago I learned not to go up north in the winter tho  :)
I just stick the 1200w hair dryer in one air inlet, jam in a foam plug around it and another plug on the other side and let her rip.  Does a great job.
I even use it in Florida on the few cold days we get.  Typically takes the oil temp sensor up to 70F.

I recently had the chance to build and try a travel preheater in 11deg weather.  I shaped urethane foam into an smile adapter that fits a small but powerful (1875W) folding hair dryer.  (I ended up buying about 6 hair dryers to test their temperature and airflow outputs.)  I used some old scraps and glue to roughly fiberglass it and as it cured, I cleared out airflow passages in the foam, painted it "remove before flight" red, and glued on felt seals.


It wasn't my prettiest work, but I was pleasantly surprised to discover how functional it was in 11F weather. It raised the front engine case temperature to 87F, the cylinder fins to 70-something, and raised the oil sump temperature measurably. All temperatures courtesy of a non-contact thermometer I received as a Christmas gift.  The engine started on the first crank after about 2/3 of a rotation using Jerry's method and then proceeded to deliver great cold weather performance, making me happy I'd found a way to fly in this cold.


It weighs a few ounces and when combined with the folding hair dryer is a probably a little over a pound. A lot of the airports I've landed at haven't had a preheater, let alone one with a Q adapter but they've almost all had power somewhere on the field which has given me the option to make an overnight stop. Now that I'm using it, I can see a couple ways I could improve it if I make another while I'm in a heated shop. For now, I'm just enjoying a bit more Q travel freedom in this ridiculously cold weather we've been having.  


Fabrication photos attached. If it wasn't so cold I might have actually taken a picture of it in use. 


Best,
