Hi Jay,

so far I got not any response from the Quickheads owner or my try with PM on canard forum about the plans for Quickie Q2 I pay for already. Well, how much it will be cost that you will go for a copy shop to make a scan of all the appendix sheet?

Hey Jim,
Looks you have a homing beacon inside that auto pilot of yours to go to and from work!
Nice video Mike!   We all long to do that flying stuff for sure!

Wow. it's been a while sense last flying.  Our local airport closed RWY 9-27.  I guess they didn't want to re-pave it.  I kinda hated that runway anyway...  But then they decided to pave the intersecting end where the last two runways were.  Then they closed the good runway 4-22 and left all the Training flights, Air Carriers, Coast Guard choppers and C130's to fight it out.  The ground controllers have aged 10 years.  The tower folks are doing fine, just keep em circling!  

Then came COVID!  At least aviation is critical.  But what happened is COVID grounded most of the air carriers.  It might have really slowed down the coast guard also as I didn't see any of them at the airport.  I'd say we are back to the traffic count from 1980.

So planning on a long and hot taxi I fired up the Q200.  Luckily they were using RWY 36 so that's my shortest taxi.  No 3 min wake turbulence delays!  Got right off.  Flew about an hour, all the way down our beaches from Tarpon Springs FL to Egmont Key.  Our beaches are closed.  So from the water to the high tide line is the only place people can be.  How did these people get on the beach?  Some took boats, that's ok.  Most cheated the system.

Anyway a beautiful day for aviating, 80F, clear sky, 7K cross wind.  Check out the video I shot.  Unfortunately most of the video was shot pointing into the sun which kinda wrecks it.  And my front camera died pretty early so it didn't get the landing...  Still I needed proof.  I took out the parts the feds might not have liked 😬  

Get your Q done while your on Furlough!

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.

Thanks Bruce,

I’m gonna pull both top and bottom thru bolts first, then do one cylinder at time. 2 then 3. Those thru bolts go through both cylinders.

I’m going to stroke the rod fully out, remove the wrist pin and leave the piston in the cylinder with out removing it so I don’t disrupt the rings. (I have 9:4.1 Lycon pistons). If I remember correctly those pistons only have rings above the wrist pins. Replace the cylinder base o ring, chamfer both thru bolt holes and install the o rings with a small amount of Hylomar behind each. Making sure there is absolutely No Contamination on the threads! Then reinstall the cylinder and torque cylinder base bolts to spec. Then repeat procedure on number 3 cylinder. Finally torque  both thru bolts to spec.

I originally built up my engine having had all the parts zyglowed, and magnafluxed and yellow tagged. Essential a zero time rebuild. That was 22 years ago however and now I’m just clearing the cob webs out of my nogin.

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.

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.!!

Spring Fling!  Woo hoo!

PS I think Honey Lamb is ready to travel somewhere as soon as this  Covid is over!

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.
 
Spring Fling May 15,16,17, 2020. Be there (KDEH)or we will talk about you!
