Re: Watch “Dr. Steve’s first solo flight in his Q2 - 1989” on Vimeo

Brad Baerg
 

Dr. Steve was a hanger partner of mine for many years, and was a great guy. He was a low time pilot on Cesnas before flying the Q and eventually got very good at short field landings.

Steve loved to fly and made many cross country trips from his home base in Abbotsford B.C. to places like Reno, Vegas, Oshgosh ( 3 times ) and Whitehourse in the Yucon Terratories.

Steve eventually switched to a Jabaru 6 cyl engine after having 3 engine bloc failers with the Revmaster.

Steve was a good friend, and still miss him

My first flight was nothing like this and I’m sure many others experienced the same as me on their first flight, as it was a non event.

Apparently Steve didn’t have much if any complex or fast slick airplane time. As the old timers on this list know, it’s all about controlling speed and not over controlling the plane. 
Every time he was too high and too fast and out of control. I’m just glad he finally got it and went on to put all those hours on his Q which I don’t believe has been matched to this day. I think Rene knew him well. He flew in the tribute flight to Steve.

We still have another Q1 we might part with but I'm sure Georgia is a bit farther than you want to travel to get one.

Maybe you’re thinking of Henry Hallam’s electric Q1. I’ve seen it taxi on a video somewhere. It’s all gone quiet recently. I hope it’s still progressing behind the scenes.
I also have a Q1 that is the basis of an electric version, not for sale either. Sorry.

That electric Q1 isn't a Q1, exactly. It's from Quickie founder Gene Sheehan and is a completely new design, all carbon fiber, and actually a bit smaller than a Q1. I doubt that it is for sale. MY Q1 is definitely not for sale.

I have watched  Dr Steve flight several times. Each time I get anxious and can feel my stomach churn.

 I can empathize with him as I have had some interesting experiences.

Watching the video, I applaud Dr Steve for not giving up and learning every time he goes around.

 If you do the right thing , that's great, if you do the wrong thing, you will soon learn to do the right thing, and if you do nothing, you are wasting your time.

  Although video distorts a lot, it appears as if he is always high, tries to get it down and gets too much speed and then can't slow down to land.

 He obviously learned and flew many hrs. It's a great video.------------  Chris

Zero motorcycles powertrain. 2014 SR model. 11.4kWh Battery, BMS, 67hp motor, controller, ‘Throttle’, display, etc. The powertrain wont know it’s not in a motorcycle.

Started the research for Project SQuERTA (Facebook page) back in 2014, bought the Q1 minus FWF in 2016, bought the motorcycle in 2018, spent nearly two years out of the country. Now back and hoping to make progress later this year. In the meantime other people have overtaken and are blazing a trail. I wish them the very best of luck. Someone needs to reach the finish line and demonstrate what can be done.

Stalled for lack of cash/other priorities, but definitely still on the to-do list.

I suspect one of his problems that he was not focused far enough down the runway during round out. He was also having issues with his pitch sensitivity.

That is Henry's Q1.  It was in Tehachapi, but last I heard it was moved to Mojave, and taxi testing had been completed.  It is NOT the same as the TWERP Q1 that Elliot had the emergency landing in.

I assume the distance from the left case half to the right case half plus you would need to drill that 4” or so distance to the right case half and then stop before you drilled into the right case half.  Then drill a smaller hole in the right half to accept the Heli-coil.  Then you would need to find a way to break off the little tang on the Heli-coil and remove it some way.  
Have you known of a way to install the Heli-coil thru that distance?

Go carefully when you torque up the driven studs and then the cylinder base  nuts!  Imraan and I pulled a stud when re installing his number 3 cylinder.  He had to  have the case apart and have heli-coils installed.  Not fun!

Say Jim when  you go back in with the thru bolts for cylinder #4 you will obviously have to thread the bolts back into the opposite case.  When I pulled my #4 I tried to re-torque the thru bolts "driven studs" to spec of 300 inch lbs or 25 foot lbs because one of the studs seemed a little long when I originally mounted the cylinder at overhaul.  And because I was curious about their original torque.  As I started to torque the two it seemed they were going in a bit further than I thought they should.  So I stopped and then remounted the cylinder and torqued the cylinder base bolts to the prescribed >490 inch lbs or >40 foot lbs for 7/16-20 bolts and >410 inch lbs or >34 foot lbs for the 3/8 -24 bolts.  
 
I called Buddy at D and B Engines the next day and asked him what was going on with the driven studs not making torque.  He said you most likely have a heli-coil in place and the heli-coil has drilled hole at the end of it which makes the end of the hole further in from the heli-coil.  I know clear as mud, but think about how you drill and screw in a heli-coil.  I may have been bottoming out the threads on the bolt and screwing in the heli-coil more than originally mounted from Divco in Tulsa when they re built my case halves.
 
So unless you have a thru stud sticking out to far to get a cylinder base wrench on it when you mount it you might measure the other cylinder base bolts to see if they are sticking out any extra.  If you have any questions I would direct you to Buddy at D and B.  It seemed so much more simple when he described the procedure.
