Re: Yahoo! Groups Shuck Airfoil

 

Hi Mike, 

My RV6A is noisy. I have a Clark headset modified for active noise reduction but my new Zulu 3 is quieter. I have a Lycoming O-320 E2D 150 with a metal Sensinich prop. I have problem believing a Quickie 200 is quieter.

Bruce!
Good to hear from you as well. Things are great in Wichita. I'm still designing GA airfoils and flying my  RV6A and Cessna 120. I went through Emporia two weeks ago and it reminded me of when you, your son, and I got weathered in coming back from the Quickie fly-in at Ottawa. 
 
Great hearing from you! My thanks to the Q-List group for letting me "announce" our moving Shuck Airfoil from Yahoo! Groups to Groups.io !
 
Best wishes!

Re: Yahoo! Groups Shuck Airfoil

 

Charlie Calivas gave me the first ride I ever had in an RV6, so, I've been in your airplane!

I've designed new main wing airfoils for the Q-200 but I'd be very nervous about using them. Canard aircraft are extremely cool but difficult to design good airfoils for.

Tell Charlie I said hello!

Hey all,

Cool video Jerry . . . I’m going to be that guy for a second here. Please keep this email group directly related to quickies. There are loads of great Facebook groups with fun videos and pictures of everything aviation. For those of us who use our email for work and other important email notifications it’s really appreciated to not get bombarded with what amounts to aviation spam email. I think this email list is a fantastic tool and asset for the quickie builders and pilots but it does have a lot of traffic and if that turns into a lot of traffic plus a lot of unrelated-to-quickie  traffic I’m going to unsubscribe, and I really don’t want to!

I was thinking more along the lines of a IVOPROP.  Magnum 2 blade electric in flight adjust is $3080 and weighs 24.2 lbs. I have no idea as to what a prop your using now weighs.
 
Could it aid in top speed?

It would be an electric prop such as Airmaster, https://www.propellor.com/
I personally feel it would offer a substantial improvement due to the airframes wide speed range not to mention the blade selection offering more modern technology.

The current prop probably is in the 7-10 lb range.  So you will be doubling. Just do a new w/b and add necessary weight in the tail.  I guess you will be adding 50+ pounds.

But hey it’s worth a try.

Mine is a wood Prince, but Lonnie puts a thin carbon fiber sheath on the wood props too. it is a 54 x 62, but I have the Jabiru which turns up faster than the O-200, so if you have an O-200, 70 might be the right pitch.

It would be an electric prop such as Airmaster, https://www.propellor.com/
I personally feel it would offer a substantial improvement due to the airframes wide speed range not to mention the blade selection offering more modern technology.

Can you install a Constant Speed Propeller upon an IO-200?

If so, what would that do for top speeds and takeoff?

I've not flown with another prop besides the MT on my TriQ.  So I couldn't tell you what the top speed difference would be.  I cruise around 150 to 160 on a good day which is fairly good for a TriQ 200.

I was thinking more along the lines of a IVOPROP.  Magnum 2 blade electric in flight adjust is $3080 and weighs 24.2 lbs. I have no idea as to what a prop your using now weighs.
 
Could it aid in top speed?

I have an MT Propeller and really like flying with it.  It is heavier than a wood prop so there is a trade off.  It really helps with fuel burn if you want to oversquare Manifold pressure and lower rpms.  It also has been a great help with high mountain altitude airport take off's.  I can dial in 2700 rpm for take off which helps a bunch.  I also don't have to keep torquing the wood prop hub as the MT is metal.  If you build a really light weight Q200 it would be a great help with all of these respects.  There is a trade off for extra weight though.

I have a Prince fixed pitch, which seems to perform well. It has some aeroelastic properties that help with performance across a wider speed range. Other prop makers have done some of this as well. Advantage is it weighs 7 pounds. Mine hedges towards a climb pitch and I sacrifice some speed, but I can get out of a 2500' runway at 9000 DA.

Props such as the Ivoprop and warp drive are very old airfoil / blade technology and do not have enough twist for high speed operation. They are best left for slower low to mid powered planes.
To the question if they could aid in top speed, I doubt it, but they would be fine for takeoff and climb out. Probably quite helpful in landing with their '80s tech airfoils.

These fall into, you get what you pay for.
