I'm resurrecting an old thread because I'm enjoying this spring flying weather (Thanks Paul!) and already getting excited about helping Bruce welcome you to Oklahoma at FoD in September 2018.

I haven't heard much about a Spring Fling.  Is that a thing this year?

Congrats on getting back in the air, Paul. I now have a list of things to avoid: motorcycles and trees!

Well it took until the 21st of March, but I finally made my first Q flight of the year!  I went back over the last 27 years and my average has been the 18th of January, so this year is a little late!  Nothing special, just a loop around the area and then three landings (to a full stop of course!) for 0.9 hours.  Track is here: http://aprs.fi/n17pf

Jerry Marstall and I have been competing on who would fly first after our respective accidents. He beat me fair and square, but only by 2 days!  The hardest part for me was getting in and out of the Q with two broken ribs.  Flying was no big deal, although I'm not particularly proud of any of the three landings I made.  I guess I'm a little out of practice!

For those of you still building - get going..  For those of you flying - go out and fly more, you never know when a tree might fall on you and break your back!  Although most of you are probably smart enough not to let a tree fall on you.  Apparently I'm not.

Nice Square track, cool!  Thanks for the tip about the trees.  I'll keep my distance from now on.  Heal up soon!

Thanks Paul,

 

Have sat in it with headsets plugged into both sides and clearances are all good. I have to reach around with my left hand to adjust intercom volume and squelch but that is not difficult. The seat backs put me far enough forward that there is no problem with interference. In fact leads are nicely out of the way. I put my EFIS in yesterday and it fired up properly when I switched on the avionics switch. If you did not know better, you would think I knew what I was doing when I wired everything! For you low-landers, if you only looked at the altimeter, you would probably think I was already flying.

There is always inadequacy when posting a preliminary photo of an assembly. This is a photo is of the finished product so may allay some of your concerns. The lever is far enough forward that I have to reach forward to get a hand on it and it cannot be bumped by my leg. This shows the current location of the throttle and other engine controls in their dedicated sub-panel above the reflexor handle.  I have test-flexed the fuselage to its full load capacity and the installation of the cable sustains no ill effects. I originally had a push-pull cable for the reflexor but deep-sixed that because I did not like the play in the cable and linkage.  My handle has a friction lock that is progressive,  and actuated by twisting the handle.. I can put as much resistance on the handle as I wish and it moves smoothly without binding or skipping, just requires progressively more force to move, or I can completely lock it by twisting it enough.  The range of motion is such that you have to pull the top of the handle back about 3 inches to get from neutral to 6 degrees of upward aileron deflection. The position of the handle in the picture puts the aileron in the neutral position.

 

By the way, yesterday I received the replacements for the cardboard “avionics” in this photo. Can’t wait to plug them in and test. I am now licking my wounds and apologizing to the wife for what these things cost!

Neat setup.

 

(I am sure you are planning to enclose the leads.)

 

Please take care with working on the reflexor. I think you will find that your left stick is just as powerful a control as the elevator if not more.  Is that a throttle linkage sitting below it? I have a little bit of a tab on my reflexor and I prefer to fly with sleeves rolled up--I get nervous that a sleeve edge will catch on a handle when reaching past one control for the other.  Dave Dugas's and Jerry Marstall have some of the tougher reflexor locations to accidentally bump.

 

I doubt there will be much change in fuselage geometry due to thermal or structural loads, but I expect that your cable and its joints may stretch some initially.  If you are able to integrate a spring around the turnbuckle to apply a pre-load in parallel to the cable, you might be able to reduce your maintenance load on that item.

 

Just for reference, mine is a throttle-type cable glued to the interior wall of the fuselage.  IE, a push pull cable inside a ribbed metal sleeve.  It is wired to a lever arm that has a decent amount of friction against a phenolic block that has a step or two machined in it so it the lever "clicks" into place at either end and at neutral.

Jay--------------  Like all the pictures. Giving me some ideas. Looking at your relexor, is your QCSA3 part the stock part?.
I think there was a advisory to make the part narrower for better aileron response.  If it's done , disregard the message.

My body, the Q and the weather all aligned today to usher in my first Q flight since August when I face-planted into a mountain off my motorcycle. 

 

I just finished the condition inspection and was ready to go.  Fortunately, it was totally uneventful except for the wonderful thrill it was to be back in the air in the Q again.  The Q cockpit is a special place to be.

 

Surprisingly, my flying skills (or lack of) seemed to not have deteriorated sufficiently to scare me any more than they usually do. I am sure it helped that Nancy would periodically take me flying so I could “see the picture” down final a few times before launching off in my plastic fantastic.

 

Anyway, the skies are no longer safe.  I have returned to flight.

Everyone fly safe.
