Re: Dave Dugas' Q-2 presentation upload on hold

Maybe.. You/someone can come up with a standardized list of questions that each owner can go over and answer initially about their particular aircraft. Cover all the topic's that everyone generally ask or generally feel's are important. (Often I see the owner start to speak about a certain thing and then a question gets presented and the owner never returns to the original point he/she was making) This could lead to a more complete organized presentation.

Then, they can film (cell phone is fine and everyone seems to have one) the walk/talk around while addressing their interest as well as the standardized list of questions/topics.

Once they finish this, the cell phone video can be uploaded and then as you mentioned a ZOOM meeting for everyone to get feedback.


Re: tire size (revised topic)

Thanks Jay,

I have the uprated leg, but set it up with the 10 inch tyre, to the + 3 Degree,  it looks good on the wheels currently, but it is an option if the lift off needs assistance.

I was more meaning the ply rating, are you running 4, 6 or 8 ply ? As you are running 11" will be slightly different anyway.

Hi Richard,

Most people use the original 4" rim and tire size that came with the tri-gear kit (also most people have the heavier-duty Scott Swing/Velocity gear leg and fork). I initially used the 5" rim with the 11" tire that is intended for the main gear also on the nose. Plan was to have same on all three wheels and carry a spare to replace any of them. I changed my mind on the mains and went to the 500x5 on the mains, but left the 11" tire on the nose. Since you have the 500x5 mains, you may want to do this since it raises the nose a bit, which helps with rotation on take off and gives more prop clearance.

Cheers,
Jay

I just finished the top skin layup on the wing and am doing the canard top on Wednesday. Does anyone remember their weight for wing and canard Q200 at this stage? Curious as to where I stand.

Also, in the plans it says to put the rudder pedals where comfortable.
I am 5 10 1/2. Can someone around my height measure from the inside firewall to the mount point for their rudder pedals and let me know. It will save me a bit of figuring. Thanks Chris

Re: Reflexor and elevator control tubes

Richard Thomson
 

Thanks Kevin,

Now thats interesting , my roll trim on the elevators is on the starbord side, it was there when I had it so left it there. Also there is a interfacing part that has stops built in so you cant go too far. I will take some pictures next time I am at the hanger.

So that poses the Question: does it matter which side the trim is fitted ?

Also on your aileron bellcrank is the stub arm sticking up for servo connection ?

Reflexor installed. The aluminum holds the cookie in the ring, and applies the friction to keep it in place. The bolt at the top is a b-nut that captures the control wire. the control is a veneer cable in the cockpit.  
The stainless cable is for the rudder. 





Elevator control rods. If you look closely, you can see the friction tube that is on the left control rod. Just a piece of clear tube. The ID is tight on the metal parts. No movement with vibration. There is a left thread on one end and a right thread on the other.  Cardinal Rule! DO NOT ADJUST DURING FLIGHT. It would be a bad day if the tube came disconnected in flight. There are no jamb nuts on them. 520 hours and so far I have had no trouble.
Let me know if you have any questions.

All,

I was able to get Dave's presentation uploaded, but when he saw it, he realized that the recording quality was so poor, that no one would probably want to sit through it.  This may be an on-going problem with Zoom. With each presenter, we do a test Zoom from their hangar, and honestly, I wouldn't lie, the broadcast quality was just fine. Maybe it has to do with local weather conditions. At any rate, Dave has kindly volunteered to repeat his presentation, not on Zoom, on some device, then upload it via WiFi and we'll get it on YouTube.  It may be a week or two, so please be patient.

In that same line Keith Welsh has re-recorded his presentation but hasn't had a chance to upload it yet.  So that is in the works.

Reaction to the presentations has been very good but it looks like we will have to move to more of a pre-recorded format.  Maybe we can release the recording, then have a Zoom Q&A shortly after where you guys could ask the follow up questions.  Also, Mike Dwyer is working on another format for his October session, where he may combine a pre-recorded film, but combine it with a Zoom meeting.  It will be interesting if that method works.

Anyhoo, stay tuned and please stay patient.

Thanks.

Re: weight

Jay Scheevel
 

HI Chris,

I made a glass reinforced platform of 1/4" aircraft plywood, then mounted the rudder pedal fittings to that. I put a piece of aluminum angle on the firewall, and two upward pointed 1/4" studs mounted as hardpoints in the canard. This allowed me to build and adjust all of the rudder considerations outside of the plane and then bolt the platform in place. It can be removed and re-positioned if needed. I can highly recommend this, as opposed to gluing them to the canard from the get go. I can post pictures if you are interested.

Cheers,
Jay

Re: Coughlin Brake Mount Drawings

Managed to reverse engineer the JPG drawing for the Hoskins version of the Coughlin brake mod. Quite pleased with how everything turned out when stacked on top of the drawing. Tomorrow's trick will be getting these into DXF and over to the laser cutter software.

If anyone is interested in a 3D view of how the parts go together, let me know.

Do you remember why you chose the external curves that you did on your version of the Coughlin brake mounts? I attempted to redraw your design in Fusion 360 but I didn't have all the dimensions I needed. Did you have to make your "Inside Bracket" smaller than the original Plate No. 1 for some reason?


For now, I went with the original version from Q-talk 27 but it's missing some of the radii dimensions as well. Cut to fit, I suppose. At any rate, I think my original copy has the 1/8 inch graph lines still on it...will update when I learn more.
