Saturday's Q-Tour - Matthew Curcio's Well Traveled Q-200 December 12 - 0900 Central Time

Sam Hoskins
 

This month's Q-Tour features Matthew Curcio.  I met Matthew at Oshkosh and he had just acquired a Q-200 and was living in Ohio. He got the plane up and running and got a job at Scaled Composites. Since then, he has flown in each of the lower 48 states and also to Barrow, Alaska. He made several modifications to turn his Q-200 into a real long distance plane.This will be a really interesting Q-tour, be sure to join us. The log-in link is at the bottom of this email.

The January Tour will star Corbin Geiser. Corbin also acquired a previously built Q-200, and like the rest of us, is making improvements to the aircraft. After he purchased it, he did all the right things to get ready to fly his new toy, and he is reaping the rewards.

Sam Hoskins is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Just finished cleaning the shop. I finally have the wing removed from the table and hanging from the ceiling, Have the fuselage removed from the build table and doing a bit of filling on the fuselage to tail connection.

The canard has been removed from the build table and because I had jigging blocks attached to the bottom, I put the canard on the floor, leveled it and installed the addition 1 degree of incidence and then bondoed the blocks to the floor.  I've done this before and find it easier to move the fuselage to the canard than to lift the canard to the fuselage. Hope to install the airfoils permanentley soon.

 I also finished the landing gear I had made. It is the steel spring gear. Made the wheel pants and fairings and layed on the first coat of primmer.   The assemble in the middle is the complete unit and the other pieces are what goes into building it.  The brakes I am using are from Sonnex. Nice units.  The complete weight with fairings, brakes, gear and wheels is 20 lbs per side.  I  am confident I am going to be much heavier than most Q's with my Subaru installed , so although the gear may be a bit heavy , it will be very robust.

Still having fun---------------  Chris

New Tri Q200 Pilot!!

Bruce Crain
 

Thought I’d let you all know there is a “new Quickie Sheriff” out there in the southern US! Pete Stein and a myself flailed the skies around Enid Woodring Airport with a sortie to Stearman field for lunch one day. A bit less than 4 hours right seat and Pete can now land my TriQ better than I! Plus keep ‘er straight down the runway taxi runs!
He bought a beautiful lavender/white TriQ in Gilespie field in California! Pete is one of the best at handling my TriQ! Expecting big things and hopefully trips to see each other in the future. I will let Pete send pics or videos if he likes.

Recieved an email from Paul Fisher asking what I was doing. Flying somewhere I guess.
As it turned out Paul flew to DEH from DVN. Landed about 11:00 AM. He made a prefect landing. Calm winds and 35°F.
We had a bite of lunch as my plane was being preheated, fumed, preflighted.
High thin overcast clearing with breaks, so some sunshine. Important because the cockpit is a lot more comfortable with sunshine at this temp.
Fired up about 12:30PM.
Mission is to fly with Paul half way to DVN formation. Th twist is I was going to do the formation flying and Paul was going to lead.
We fly this way a lot, but I always lead. Only tried to follow once before, on the way home from FOD Emporia. We quickly changed as I didn’t preform well.
Not much change this time. Closest I got was 500’. Farthest was half mile. Being coached by Paul did help, but I think its best I stick to lead.
We parted ways and flew to our home airports.
Made a good landing myself!
Excellent day for flying, trying a new challenge, and enjoying the gift of aviation!!

Hope this spurs some activity from the group. Been too quite lately. Let’s hear it!!!

Re: Q1 parts

Hot Wings
 

Just joined this group today and saw this post.

I do have the Q-1 in 2D CAD and at one time a set of full size prints for the metal parts and templates.  I still have the files but my plotter died and I don't have the desire to distribute them.  The last time I did they were scanned, poorly, and offered on eBay.  The DXF of that scan were at one time in the files section of the old Yahoo group. 

The DXF for the Q-2 foils I posted a long time ago were CAD generated and offset for the thickness of the laminations.

If I get my engine project finished (see post in the Q-1 sub group) I'll put the metal parts sets I have setting on the shelf on the market.  Consider my efforts nothing more than vaporware until they are complete.

Re: Sparrow strainers

 

This sounds like featherfill primer. If you look it up its good for small buildup for sanding/finishing etc. 


Re: Sparrow strainers

Chris Walterson
 

Another question.  As an experiment, I took some normal primer and thinned it out considerabley and then added micro to thicken it up. I then painted a piece of aluminum with two coats. Two days later , I  sanded and it came out well. Kind of like a poor mans fill and sand. I haven't tried to spray it yet, but  I am sure it will also go on nicely with a foam roller. You should be able to build any low areas without concern of over spray. I just did the third thin coat of micro and then on to primer. Any thoughts??

Don't be shy to voice your opinions.    Thanks   Chris

Re: Success with LSE Install

Corbin
 

Thanks Peter.  Dying on short final is what I am most concerned about so glad you mention it.  I am guessing, with the windmilling, the prop will still be close to 1,000rpms.  Just a guess as I am no longer looking inside at that phase of flight....eyes outside by then.  If so, then I believe I have the mixture set rich enough.  I think the thing I need to get set just right is not to have it die as I get slow on the runway from it being too rich.

Re: Success with LSE Install

Peter Le Lievre
 

Corbin,

Set the mixture a little on the rich side so that the engine does not die on descent (ie short final) when the prop is windmilling. On my TSIO520 the engine needs to see an idle increase when mixture knob is leaned at idle. I dont have the manual for your engine but I expect it will require the same.

Re: Sparrow strainers

Mike Dwyer
 

I'm going to guess that the inboard bearing is much better at handling the load from the sparow strainer.  The center hinge is fairly weak.

I agree with Bruce. For years I have tried to noodle out the reasoning that QAC recommended the inboard mounting of the sparrow strainers and it may have something to do with the stall of the canard beginning inboard so the incipient stall will partially washout on the sparrow strainer resulting in a sort of stall recovery effect by adding forward stick forces. This is just a guess on my part.

Cheers,

After my experience with putting the sparrow strainer mid span I would just go with the plans.  It is a given and midpoint is not.  I put 1 1/2 degree up incidence on the canard and .8 up on the main wing.  If you have a light and therefore fast Q the view over the nose will be good as the aft end flies higher the faster you fly.
