Great report Jay,  your hours are building well now, and  multiple land aways, well done. 

Hope to get close to engine run this weekend. Will keep you posted.

Hi All,
 
I made it home this morning from the spring/summer fling. Spent the night in Kimball Nebraska last night. Actually stopped there midday, not feeling up to fighting the nasty winds/bumps typical over the mountains in the afternoon. So I called it quits and It was a good decision. This is because when I made inquiries about a hangar for the night and this lead to me meeting a really great guy, Ed Nelson, who has a long history in aviation, military and other industries. He is from an military/ag aviation family. Hi is an AI and an instructor with 26,000 hours. He came spent an hour or so with me (after putting my plane away) showing me all of his toys. He has (all in pristine condition): A Cessna 185, a Piper Warrior, a 1975 Scout, a fully restored Cessna 140 (which he learned to fly in), a PT-19 in original yellow and blue, a Pitts S-2A, a Pitts S-2C, and a Super Decathalon. Pretty cool huh?  He instructs in most of those planes, does A&P work and is the regional Citabria dealer. A nice guy worth looking up if you ever get to Kimball (KIBM). The hangar was welcome shelter for my Q, because we had very strong thunderstorms with hail move through Kimball yesterday late afternoon. The result was cool and clear this morning. Even felt chilly in the cockpit on the way home. 
 
The flights yesterday were with strong headwind components from winds as high as 55 kts out of the NNW (even over 40 kts as low as 2500 AGL). This morning’s flight was smooth for the most part but had nearly direct headwinds as high as 40 kts most of the way. These dissipated when I got about 50 miles from home. I always want to have an altitude cushion in place before approaching the mountains from the east, so I flew as high as 13,000’ MSL, but only got a few bumps going over the highest ranges. Air was clear all the way and made for great scenery watching. I was able to get above 160 mph TAS cruise at 12.5K MSL burning 5.5 gph except when climbing. So, my Q is turning out to be a really good cross-country and high altitude plane. No problems with any systems along the way to and from Iowa, and I am getting good at “readiing” the little nuances of my plane when airborne. My landings are getting better too, at least better than the one I made at DEH! Final tally: 1640 Nautical miles, round trip on 86 gallons of fuel. 
 
Thanks to Kevin and Paul for making this happen and covering our logistics and local knowledge while in Decorah! Great to see everyone and meet a few new faces there too! Hope to see some or all of you and maybe even more of you in Enid. I really enjoyed the extra time I got to spend with Keith and Sanjay. Kevin should be put in charge of weather for Enid, since he redeemed his good name with his WX for the delayed-Fling. 
 
Cheers,
Jay  Tri-Q2 N8WQ, now almost 115 hours!

Re: Spring Fling

 

Hello everyone,
I finally made it back to HUF....on Monday.
The flight there was excellent and the landing at DEH, while sucked, I learned was the same as for everyone else.  Bounce...Bounce...Land.
I learned DEH is known for that when windy due to the edies from the trees nearby when landing on Rwy 11 in a crosswind.  Once down, the runway was great.
We all had good departures, I know because I saw em all as I was the last to leave and Kevin told me mine was good too.

I enjoyed seeing everyone, their airplanes and the time we had together.  Many thanks to Kevin & Brenda for hosting again...again...and again.  The weather gods finally cut Kevin some slack.
It was fun seeing familiar Q's and Jay's VERY innovative Jabaru powered TriQ.  Thanks Jay for getting it here for us to see.  For those who have only seen photos of his plane you are in for a real treat when you get to see it live.
And thanks Bruce for explaining just what the Wadlow canard is.  As I understand it's the same LS airfoil just w/o the carbon fiber spar.  Sounds like it's constructed very much like the GU. 
Yeah, I may be the last to know but....now I know.  No one has said yet but our group of experts, Paul, Kevin, Jay, Bruce & Sanjay help solve a starting problem with a Titan 51D in the hangar next to Kevin's. 
Sunday involved much testing by Kevin and the owner after everyone had left which led to solving a wiring issue.  A big round of applause for Kevin.

I delayed the departure home due to a line of storms along the route in IL and gusting winds.  Not a lot of time in the Thorp yet but did leave later in the morning when the winds cooled off a bit.
Nice flight to DVN (Davenport) for fuel & saw both Terry and Paul.  Ran into a HUGE line of severe storms in IL that had redeveloped all across the state and blocked the route home the rest of the day.
I put down at the Marshall Co. airport in Lacon, IL for the nite.  No hotels, just a couch and a Subway nearby.  (town of 2000) 
Locals told me they had had storms earlier in the day and there was probably not enough of a window between the storm lines to have made it to Terre Haute anyway.
When I got home Monday morning my wife told me that we had gotten 4" of rain Sunday evening and the power was out most of the night.  I landed on a still wet runway and taxied through puddles on the ramp to my hangar.  Water everywhere.

Many thanks again to Kevin and Brenda for hosting the Spring Fling. 
And thank you to all who were able to attend.
Till next time.
Keith

I made it back to Detroit safely last night, although it took a bit longer than anticipated. An hour into the flight observed a wall of thunderstorms out in the distance across the horizon, landed at Rockford, IL to wait it out. After 7 hours on the ground, departed RFD (which on the map showed 2 luxurious runways), but at departure time I learned that the favoring runway was closed. Picked rwy 19 to avoid a 2 mile taxi in hot conditions. My first takeoff with rear quartering crosswinds of 14kn in the Q. The flight back to YIP was smooth with tailwinds of ~35kn with ground speeds of 190+, and for a few minutes on the good side of 200mph!  
After landing, and pulling up to the hangar I learned of the destruction caused on the ground by the thunderstorms, sizable damage at the airport with the fire station building badly damaged, and flipped over a semi-trailer truck at the airport. And no power to open the hangar doors!
Spent many hours manually cranking (in place of the motor) to raise the hangar door enough to push the Q into the hangar.

It was a fine weekend in Decorah. My thanks to Kevin and Brenda for hosting. It was wonderful to spend some time with old friends, Paul, Kevin, Bruce & Joanne, Jay, Keith, and new friends, Mark who is building a Q in Ohio, and Greg who is working on a dragonfly in Minneapolis.
It was a special treat to see Jay's beautiful Q2 for the first time, a wonderful addition to the Q family. Jay's implementation is so chock-full of innovative and clever mods and personalizations, including the split, fwd swinging canopy, the blended exit air vent on top of turtle deck, the non-naca cabin air inlets in the fuselage Canard joints, the radiator air inlets, the elevator trim, and many more. ..and the hand painted Tweety Birds painted on the tail and on all six valve covers.
Buried amidst the banter and kidding were gems of aviation and life wisdom, hard to discover any other way.
Attached are a few pics from the trip.
Thanks

I have an old email from Paul Spackman talking about flight testing his Jabiru engine. He tested to 250 knotts in a descent. He was in Wyoming & did most of his flying around 8000 feet. This was probably indicated or calibrated, but he didn't specify.

the main wing on the right side of the fuselage, so it would get clean

Hi All,

 

I made it home this morning from the spring/summer fling. Spent the night in Kimball Nebraska last night. Actually stopped there midday, not feeling up to fighting the nasty winds/bumps typical over the mountains in the afternoon. So I called it quits and It was a good decision. This is because when I made inquiries about a hangar for the night and this lead to me meeting a really great guy, Ed Nelson, who has a long history in aviation, military and other industries. He is from an military/ag aviation family. Hi is an AI and an instructor with 26,000 hours. He came spent an hour or so with me (after putting my plane away) showing me all of his toys. He has (all in pristine condition): A Cessna 185, a Piper Warrior, a 1975 Scout, a fully restored Cessna 140 (which he learned to fly in), a PT-19 in original yellow and blue, a Pitts S-2A, a Pitts S-2C, and a Super Decathalon. Pretty cool huh?  He instructs in most of those planes, does A&P work and is the regional Citabria dealer. A nice guy worth looking up if you ever get to Kimball (KIBM). The hangar was welcome shelter for my Q, because we had very strong thunderstorms with hail move through Kimball yesterday late afternoon. The result was cool and clear this morning. Even felt chilly in the cockpit on the way home.

 

The flights yesterday were with strong headwind components from winds as high as 55 kts out of the NNW (even over 40 kts as low as 2500 AGL). This morning’s flight was smooth for the most part but had nearly direct headwinds as high as 40 kts most of the way. These dissipated when I got about 50 miles from home. I always want to have an altitude cushion in place before approaching the mountains from the east, so I flew as high as 13,000’ MSL, but only got a few bumps going over the highest ranges. Air was clear all the way and made for great scenery watching. I was able to get above 160 mph TAS cruise at 12.5K MSL burning 5.5 gph except when climbing. So, my Q is turning out to be a really good cross-country and high altitude plane. No problems with any systems along the way to and from Iowa, and I am getting good at “readiing” the little nuances of my plane when airborne. My landings are getting better too, at least better than the one I made at DEH! Final tally: 1640 Nautical miles, round trip on 86 gallons of fuel.

 

Thanks to Kevin and Paul for making this happen and covering our logistics and local knowledge while in Decorah! Great to see everyone and meet a few new faces there too! Hope to see some or all of you and maybe even more of you in Enid. I really enjoyed the extra time I got to spend with Keith and Sanjay. Kevin should be put in charge of weather for Enid, since he redeemed his good name with his WX for the delayed-Fling.

 

Cheers,

Jay  Tri-Q2 N8WQ, now almost 115 hours!

Hey Mike,

 

Your ADSB is in and working! I helped Bob set up the WiFi connection yesterday. You’re making progress. Yeah. When are you back in LVK?

Good turnout so far!  Five Q's, a T-18 and a Cherokee.  Fun time, and it's only Friday!

Great report Jay,  your hours are building well now, and  multiple land aways, well done.

Hope to get close to engine run this weekend. Will keep you posted.

Cheers
