Worst Landing to Date Today #flight_reports

Corbin
 

Well, the flight was great but the landing had tons of room for improvement.  In fact, it was my worst landing in all my 843 hours (only 56 hrs in the Q200 though).  Thought I would share on this quiet afternoon in case  anyone notices anything I am not thinking of that could have contributed.  Hard to do without being there, I know.

I had the reflexor "deployed" as usual and was good'ish on airspeed across the numbers.  Maybe a little fast at 90mph but had 7,000ft of runway to bleed it off.  I had the power out, floated some, and let it settle but didn't realize I was getting the nose a bit high.  Airspeed bled off fast and I plopped it down.  Then was holding on for a wild ride on the rollout since I came down harder than normal.  I was going left of the centerline quickly and it didn't seem to want to go right much with my quick jabs on the right pedal. 

It was acting as if the tailwheel wasn't down...but surely it had to be.  Anyway, as I was going left of centerline at a near 30 degree angle it seemed fast again.  Could have just seemed fast since I wasn't going straight down the runway like normal.  That's the point where I glanced down at the tach and think I saw 850rpm.  Honestly, I am not  sure what  my normal rpm is right after touch down.  Since my hand was still on the throttle, I think I was still holding it all the way out but maybe I pulled the rest of the power out at that point?  I wonder if I had accidentally put some throttle back in when I plopped it down  because it seemed I plopped it down slow and then it darted left.

It sure was frustrating as I slowly got back to centerline and taxied all the way back to the hangar.  Some things I know I did wrong were I definitely didn't fly it all the way to the ground and stalled it a little high by getting nose high to high from the pavement.  But the high RPM or possibility of power still in sure did add to the wild ride.

The short flight before that sure was great though!

Does anyone need an “as new” military style control stick?  See attachment - 4-buttons, trigger, coolie hat. Have the schematic.  List $200 plus.  $100 or best offer.

I totally agree with everything that Paul just said. It is easy-peasy if you have a plumb-bob, a carpenter’s square, a tape measure, and three scales. Go for it.

The way to find the pilot/copilot arm is to climb in and weigh the plane again.  A little algebra will let you calculate the arm.  It's way more accurate than trying to measure a center of mass of a reclined pilot.  I did the same thing for each fuel tank and baggage.

 

Once you have the plane leveled on the scales it's just a matter of taking multiple readings as you load up the plane.  From there it's just math.  The only measuring you need is to find the exact location of each of the landing gear relative to the datum.

 

Since each plane is hand made, you should NOT depend on anyone else's arm lengths.

 

Just my opinion.

Trying to get weight and balance from the former owner (still working on it--what I have is empty weight is 610). I've seen Martin Skiby's Q-200 W&B but that's 100hp versus the Revmaster with the bigger heads at 75hp.

If I remember correctly the datum is 14" in front of the firewall.  But it has been years since I did weight and balance so someone help me out here.

So , if i'm counting in base 10, this year should be the 30th....  big milestone for us!  Definitely something to celebrate!

Sweet!
I have only one thing to fix on the TriQ 200 N96BJ and that is a tach coming this week and I am pumped and ready!  I like the extra days (July 17-21)  to stick around if WX doesn't cooperate.  And like Paul I don't have to hit the time clock but Honey Lamb might need to ask for a few extra days.  Honey Lamb doubles as my "Sugar Mamma" so she works a bit.Yes I am truly a blessed man!
On a side note Alan Thayer has been "prodding" me for info on the "Field Of Dreams" event and info.  I will try to get myself together and see if I can make that happen.  So stay tuned folks for a future post

Re: Spring Fling

Jay Scheevel
 

Totally understand, Bruce. I thought you were travelling alone, and I would not want to risk Honey Lamb backing out.

 

Also, your definition of formation flying is probably more like Jerry’s. My definition is that I can still sort of see you, enough to stay in the same township!

Jay

Hi Jay!

Say a couple of observations.  If I flew to Broken Bow, NE it would make my trip an extra 200 miles.  Not sure if Honey Lamb would tolerate that or not.  She want to go with me.  heart

Also I am a bit squeamish of flying formation with anyone that doesn't have experience.  Just an "old bold" thought.  I am sure Jerry could verify that with his experience in the military.

Hi Kevin,

 

I think that I will try to make it. On planning a route, I see that Broken Bow is pretty much on the way for me. I wonder if Lynn is planning on coming? If so, maybe we could fly together. If Bruce wants to fly a little out of his way, maybe he could meet us both there and we could fly in as a Tri-ship of Tri-Q’s
