Hi Jim,

 

I have almost 3600 hours of logged building time. We all know that does not do justice to the amount of time you actually spend, but I am close to the end, since I managed to “steal” good ideas from folks like yourself over the last 33+ years! I probably have some things that will get some minor tweaking and re-engineering before my first flight, but right now I am on a strict schedule to get all of the airworthiness items in ship shape and all of the paperwork together, since the DAR will be here May 17 to inspect. I think I will make it, but working my tail off (no pun intended, but see picture attached!).

 

Cheers,

Jay

Jay, nice work, however you are not done building til your really done. Ha ha. When I was at your stage I thought I was done (4,000 hour build). Then spent another 6 months at the airport rebuilding things I changed.

Congratulations on your persistence. After all is said and done, they don’t build themselves, do they. When do you plan to turn that hangar queen into a soaring 🦅 bird?

Re: Another new Q

Jay Scheevel
 

That’s good news, Jim. Can’t wait to hear from Gary. I was wondering if John’s airplane had found a home. He was a very careful builder, so I am sure it is well built. Make sure that you tell Gary to join the JabCamit Yahoo group. That group is very knowledgeable and contains some real engineering expertise, all of whom fly behind Jabiru (or Camit) engines. I have benefitted greatly from their store of knowledge.  He should also get to know Paul Spackman. Paul has been a great help over my years of building, and both John’s (now Gary’s) engine mount and mine are copies of Paul’s and were made by the same welder in Casper who made Paul’s Jabiru mount.

 

Cheers,

Jay

I had a lengthy conversation today with Gary Fink in Klamath Falls, Oregon. He will be introducing himself shortly as he too is ready to fly his Q2 (6 cyl. Jabiru) TAIL DRAGGER. I will be working with him as he proceeds. Give Gary a warm welcome when he comes online. He is a nice fella and is ready to step into the deep end of the pool. The first flight in my Q was exciting, a lot of fun and one of the most memorable events of my life.

This was John Loram’s Q, so Gary has finished a well built Q. The airplane has all the “Jim Bob “ six pac mods installed, so that should help him alot. Jay you have competition!

It is so great to see the dream being kept alive!

Thanks Bruce. I think Jimmy has given up on beating this old mule. I hope he will get a chance to see it in action someday soon.

Looking forward to it, Bruce. Rachel did a great job with the website. A new high for FOD!  Just a minor correction: I think that last year’s was in Davenport, not Decorah as shown on the picture caption. Hey, if Dave D. can find tweaks to my airplane from photos, then I can find tweaks to a website from photos too! 😊 Should be a great festival. With some good luck, good training and good weather, I may even have my new bird there. who knows? Will have a critique on Lynn’s weather whispering skills after the Spring Fling.

 

Cheers,

Jay

This was sent last Monday, and again last night. It did not go through. Trying again. 


Second flight of the year was yesterday. Usually I fly all winter, on days above 25°F. But, this winter was spent waiting. I’ll explain.
As I had reported in December, I had carb ice after TO from DEH. Flew to see Fisher in DVN, flew home and figured out what had happened.
I had tried to use one heat muff for carb and cabin heat. I must have been lucky for the last twelve years, but it caught up with me, and I needed to make a change as a safety of flight issue. (Through the years I have had carb ice in TO six times.) It seems that when I used carb heat, with cabin heat on, the air would flow from the cabin, across the muff and into the carb. Rather than through the length of the muff as thought. Not enough temp rise to rapidly melt ice. With cabin heat off, all was fine. The air would enter in one end of the muff, travel through the muff and exit the opposite end. The cabin heat exit was opposite the carb heat exit, therefore the air flow was across the muff rather than through the muff. Clear as mud?

Anyway I decided to make a PVC mock up of what I needed and send it off to the fellow that made the first muff. Also send the offending muff for alteration, along with the exhaust pipe and PVC mock up so he could make the new muff fit perfectly. Thus I would use the modified muff for carb heat, as it had already proven to be effective, and the new muff would be for cabin heat. Excellent plan.

Sent the old muff, along with the exhaust pipe, with PVC in place, to him. USPS LOST the whole works! Two weeks later they found it, delivered it, without the old muff and the PVC mock up. Just the exhaust pipe. That’s not good. Only thing to do was send out the original mock up, with changes made, and have him make that new again too. He would make the new muff from photos I had sent to him. He did a fantastic job, after he got his welder fixed, as it had broken down at the start of the project. Do you see pattern here? 

Long story longer. UPS claimed to have delivered the second package, when in fact they had not. Pattern? Two days later, after filing a claim with UPS, they managed to find said package and did deliver. He got the welder fixed. Finished the fabrication. I sent a check. He sent the goods. 

First mailing date to him was Feb 12. Received the goods April 16. Didn’t think I would ever see the day!

Sooo, I put things together yesterday. Figured out all the scat hose to make all the connections, and fired that mutha up.

Flew around the airport for safety, tried carb heat at altitude, and no issues.  OAT was too warm to try cabin heat, but I think it will be better that before, because it is dedicated, rather that a combo unit. Did two T&G’s and one landing. All 8’s on a scale of 10.

Damn it was good to be back in the air!!!
Big smile.
