Doh!  Sorry Jim!  I did find the thinnest o ring I could find to fit inside the hole but a chamfer would be a better idea.  How will you make a chamfer with the thru bolt in place?

Sorry Bruce. Not to confuse everyone but  I�m now referring to the #4 cylinder case bolt (half thru bolt you just repaired). Not the thru bolt did previous.

Hi Jim!
Sorry it has been so long ago that I worked over the through bolt that I don't remember if I put an o ring or just used silk thread.
Yes Buddy is a fun fellow to talk to!  And when I have a question he is more than happy to talk about aviation mechanics etc!  He is so sharp and experienced!

Bruce,
 
Thanks for the connection to Buddy. He is a hoot!
 
I talked with Buddy at D&B Aviation in OkCity. He suggested a slight chamfer on the case where the thru bolt comes out of the case. He said that was so the o ring could seat about 1/3rd of the way Into the case without cutting it. Did you do that?

Hi Bruce,

 

Glad to hear your great report. Keep knocking off those little to-do projects and you will not be able to stop smiling.

 

About crosswinds: I have to admit that my visit to Enid last September was the first time I landed with any significant cross-wind. It was not an option at Woodring, since that was my destination, and only one runway was open, so I just set up and landed it� with no issues. I was surprised how well the Tri-Q handled the 90 degree 10-13 knot crosswind that day. Worst problem I had was taxiing back on the parallel taxiway and trying to keep it from weathervaning with the castering nose wheel.

 

Working on building my wheel fairings now. Need for speed, don�t ya know. Finally got my �user error� repaired starter back on and tested�all good.

 

Cheers,

Jay

I flew N96BJ today and can say that it is up and running without any problems.  I have no oil on the belly after putting the o ring on the case half bolts on the left front!  It was 75 degrees F today and my temps were plenty cool for CHT and oil Temps!  The finished exit ramp on the bottom of the cowl looks great if you're standing back about 10 feet!

 

I am also getting the zig zag dialed in for cruise and alleviating the sparrow strainer stall!  I washed off all of the bugs today so I am feeling pretty good about it all!

 

I flew 1/2 hour today with gusting winds of 19 to 25 mph without any problem!  Yeah this TriQ is great with high winds and cross winds.  It is a lot more of a chore with the RV6 taildragger!

 

Bring it on Kevin Boddecker!  I am ready.!!

Speaking of the Fling, the virus and the gvmt will determine if it can happen. I won't give up until the last second. 
Also talked with Mike, aprt mgr, on Sunday. From a distance! He said that due to Keith Kerr's death, Keith's wife is looking to get rid of his Q2 project. Don't know much for details. I believe it was built in the Iowa City area. Maybe Greg Zimmerman could shed some light on the plane. Anyway, Mike though she might give the plane to a good home.
More details as they surface.

Let me know if you are unsuccessful in locating the bulkhead templates. I still have my originals (original set from QAC in 1984) and can get them scanned for you, but I won’t spend the money to do that unless you are unsuccessful in your effort to get the ones you already paid for.

thank you very much for your note. The both website I visit already, the Canard and Jon site is listed in my investigation actions at my first email. They a tons of Information for some one that have already a Q2 in the air or are in current stage of restoration. So the data are already on my desk and double check, but in the end I need the Bulkheads scans to build up the 3D model of Fuselage.They are still missing on Jons site or the information are not clear or measurement are missing. That was the reason I choice to buy the Plans form Quickheads and on the other site to support the guys there.

In the canard forum I ask Jon Match with an PM message to support me, we will see what happened. 

So I was still read the tons of information that are already placed here in that community , deep dive and spend much of my quality time, but I´m stil not really experienced to use a mailing list. Because that grow up in that time I start use Forum like the Canard or Quickheads style. 

So it is a pleasure to get in touch with the community. Thank you.

Re: QuIckie Q2 Project

Hi Eugen,

 

To start with, I would suggest visiting Jon Finley’s site (http://jdfinley.com/file-downloads/quickie-aircraft-documents/)  to get copies of Q2/Q200 documents. He was kind enough to post these online years ago. The Quickhead site is off and on, but the current owner (jon Matcho) also operates the website: https://www.canardzone.com Try contacting him there and you may get a resolution to your order of plans kit from quickheads site.

 

Cheers,

Hello Quckie Group,

thank you very much for the add. I'm on my way to build an ASSO X-Ray based on the construction of Guiseppe Vidor. Please find some impression on my Flickr site: https://www.flickr.com/photos/aerobase/  The Airplane ist build up with Hemlock wood and is an 2 Seat side-by-side configuration they will power up with an BMW 1200 LC motorcycle engine with about 120hp. An engine that is use very often here in Europe mostly in Trike segment.

For the build i use a DIY CNC Mill with 3 axis with CAD/CAM and on the way is an DIY 5 axis cnc mill to build my own molds, just an example please follow the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koDYJIUCDGI    It is just a example for my DIY build..

So i come up with the Quickie Q2 during my buddy own a DragonFly and he try to get it in the air. After his request I create some 3D files for him on Autodesk Inventor 3D and bring it on the CNC mill too.

I get in touch with Quickheads where I buy a Q2 package , pay for it with PayPal and in the end I get nothing, ask the website owner couple times for support during use the contact button. Nothing show up. Paypal is involved in the case. .  I was at Forum Taurus, Forum Canard, on Dave Morris site, on https://imageevent.com/qdf_files/quickiefiles   , and on http://hiwaay.net/~bzwilson/dragonfly/drawings.html and on http://jdfinley.com/file-downloads/quickie-aircraft-documents/  and catch all files that are available. Include the Lessons learned paper. 

So my investigation is on going, because I want to build up a 3D model of Quicke Q2 and start a homebuild project by use my own molds. 

 

I ask some companys in the US that are owner of the mold for a set of fuselage, but they want a couple of money include the shipping to Germany that I will spend it in my own DIY 5 Axis CNC mill and material to produce my own molds.

 

If there is any one that are able to spend me the plans for the bulkhead and so on, I will share my DXF files with that community, for sure. Because is a mess that this wonderull piece of aircraft will Die if no one will catch up the plans, build up DXF files and safe for the further homebuilders.

I’m loving my Echo and hope you do as well. The most common issue people have is the transponder threshold setting.   I think I had to go down to 900 in order for it to read baro pressure altitude.

Yes it is Jay. It belongs to a friend who is restoring it. A few months back he took out the end of the left wing. Seems hangars don’t move easily. That has now been repaired. I hope to see it fly soon.

Don’t know if you remember but Barry Weber, Mark Srick and I bought a 1983 Aeronatica Romano IAR823 directly from the Romanian Air Force  several years back. It was the primary trainer for their Migs. It had light hard mounts. We replaced the Russian instruments and some components and got it flying. It was a nimble airplane with light handling and control input characteristics like the Q. It looks like a Mooney on steroids. That was a fun experience!

After a complete day of getting the run a round (they couldn’t figure out how to get authorization to test, I sat in what they said was an isolation room for 3 hours but turned out was just a closed off area of the hospital and I was “missing”... it was a day) I did end up getting tested, I am on 3 immunosuppressants and was considered high risk, that’s the only reason I was tested vs kicked back home to isolation with no test. I was also “read the riot act” and signed papers from the county health commission stating I couldn’t leave my house for 2 weeks, could face arrest if I did and given a lot of other restrictions ect ect. BUT I was also told they (the county health commission) would check in every 24-48 hours and notify me in 5-7 days with my result. Ultimately I NEVER heard a word from the health commission, and when I called them I 3 different times I could not get a live person on the phone. I only got my (thankfully negative) result from lab corp via a back channel hook up 10 days later. So to me the numbers of reported cases are VERY VERY suspect.

They never get or had been tested but the physical signs clearly point to known covid type symptoms. And these are people in their 20’s-30’s-40’s as well as older. As far as my wife or her co-workers can tell these types of cases never officially get reported as covid deaths.

Most people walking around with it won’t know what hit them for several more days yet.

Re: Quarantined flight

I too spent an hour burning 100LL!
Where else can a guy have so much fun and be all alone? DON'T say it!!!
Nice to have that bit of freedom. Actually I have flown more during this “virus time” than I have for a long time.
Nothing else to do, meaning my time is not being demanded for other things. Well not as much.

Get out there and fly!

I got a chance to fly today (shhh, don't tell anyone!).  I was afraid I had forgotten how to fly it, but I made three beautiful landings.  Maybe forgetting all my bad habits was a good thing!

I would have flown longer, but I still had the winter time oil cooler block installed.  I haven't flown it since spring arrived (shame on me).  

Anyway, I'm now current with three full stop landings.  Hopefully all of the quarantines will be lifted before I lose my currency!

Y'all stay healthy.  Hopefully we can get together soon.
