Re: OSH warbird webcam captures quickies

 

The Quickie received recognition for “Outstanding Workmanship Plans built”
When I registered it upon arriving I almost declined judging.  
I knew thirty years of troubleshooting getting engine temps in line resulting in five overhauls and two engines, three cowl repaints, a few delaminate repairs from being kneed at airshows, two panels and fading of the cockpit material would keep it from being a top tier airplane. 
I started getting curious the more initials that were on the prop card, 15 in all, especially when one judge told me that was a good thing.
 I was surprised when a letter was delivered by the head judge on Friday that the Q would be recognized at Sat evenings awards presentation.  Even though it didn’t get a Lindy the plaque received is pretty especially when considering there were some 4000 homebuilts registered.
The winner in plans built was.......a Long Eze.

I often take it on the master solenoid or on the panel cig lighter. If those are inconvenient try the battery + post as long as the master switch is on

50 amp breaker is handling the current out from the alternator. It is only active when the alternator is spinning otherwise current from the alternator is zero. Battery charge plus electric items is probably 35 amps right after takeoff. If engine is not turning or field voltage is zero, then all current is coming from the battery.

Does the 5A break still blow?  If it does it's a bad regulator.  If it doesn't blow now, then we may have a shorted field in the alternator.

Over the years I have seen Two 5 amp breakers fail and lead me down paths of no return. Just install a factory new breaker and see if that fixes it. It did for me and Tom Moore.

Re: Oshkosh award winner

 

Hi QLIST

Here are a few links of photos of our RAFE group and the Q taken during AirVenture
 
 
The first link is albums of about 2700 photos.  Go to sets 8,9,10 and 22.
In the 8th set, you'll find the Starship on the plaza.  The Q is on the LT.  The second last in the set are of our group standing for the Natl. Anthem. 
     The lase is of our final brief prior to engine start for the RAFE tribute flight.
In the 9th you'll find the Viggen and Defiant flying.
In the 10th set, you'll find the Q leading the RAFE group to the plaza.
In the 22nd you'll see our roost, the Viggen and an EZE.  The Q is way down at the far end not visible.

The second link are the photos shown during the awards presentation.

The last link is from the EAA hotline.  View the Rutan video. Toward the end, our planes are shown on the plaza. The Q is at the very end of the video left of the Starship.
Also, the homebuilt video is great.

Other than what our Chapter 83 members took that's all I could find online.
Thanks, Keith N494K

So you can spin the alternator, good.  Can you extend wires from the plane and hook to the Alternator.  You need ground, field and the main A+ wire but it can be small cause we're not going to make 60 amps...

Put the voltmeter on the A+ and ground.  should be 12 volts.  Start spinning.  Shou ldn't go over 14 volts.  If it does your regulator is bad.  If the A+ stays at 12v when your spinning then go measure the field voltage.  If it's 8-12V then your alternator is bad.  If it's quite low then your regulator is bad.

Thanks Jim.  Just to make sure I understand.  Are you saying to turn on Master only or Master and Alt and test voltage from Batt terminal on Alternator?  Reason I ask is because if my Alt field breaker is popping I wouldn't be able to test this way.  Just want to make sure I am doing it right.  Thanks for all the help!
