I hope you guys have seen my epoxy wipe video. Probably too late in your stage, but it really works well and eliminates a lot of pain. Here it is.

If you go through the primer STOP (unless it's your filler)

3M makes a charcoal guide coat that I have used for years.
Here's an amazon link but you should be able to get it through your local jobber a lot cheaper


You put it on with a sponge like applicator (it's part of the the lid top)  You don't have to put it on heavy, a very light coat will give you all the contrast you need.
1 container will easily do your airplane

Nice thing with this is you don't get stinky paint fumes and overspray

Hey Chris
Spray a very light coat of some black or contrasting color and I mean light where it is kinda speckaled
Later as your standing those little speckales will show you where all the low spots and scratches are as they will be the last to sand off

Hi Kevin. Thx for the note.  You guys have had some tough wx,  so it appears from here. 

Fortunately, while my Q was down, Nancy would take me for a weekly ride.  Saves me a trip to the bar.

What's Jeff doing these days?

Wishing better wx for you.  J

Yes, AP is fun.  I use the heading and altitude controls when approaching an airport to comply with Appr Control directives.  That way I can put all of my attention to looking for traffic.  I also have a better chance of not being violated due to my erratic flying practices.

I flew the TriQ 200 yesterday!  Nice 55 degree day!  I worked on arresting the descent on final after setting up the speed (100 st mph) with the elevator.  Seems when I try to pull on the stick at the last minute to arrest descent it always slows me down (with the help of the MT electric prop) it gets slow and the nose gets to high and then it pays off with the nose gear getting punished by bouncing on the runway.  So the moral to the story for my Q is something I heard years ago “power is altitude and elevator is airspeed”.  Once close to the runway pull out the power.   I did that and the landing was fantastic!  Your mileage may vary.

So that was my 1st flight of 2021!

Changing the oil in ‘er next week getting ready for “Spring Fling”!  Of course there is a condition inspection due in May so hopefully SF can be early this year.

Thx. Wow! You have it bad. Not to late to begin planning your 2022 first flight.  How about Q-skis?  Take care and stay safe. J

Congratulations Jerry.  Glad it all worked out.

 

I finally got my hangar shoveled out, but the taxiways are not plowed wide enough to get the Q to the runway yet.  Oh, and we're supposed to get another 2-3 inches of snow over the next two days.  I don't think I'll have my first Q flight of the year for a while!

Finally got my radio back. Surprisingly it worked after installing. Got the Q airworthy at 2:30 and gave it a test flight. 

 

53-deg, great vis, calm winds.  Went out to a local practice area and knocked off the rust with some airwork.  Back to the pattern for some crash and dashes and on to the hanger to wipe off the big grin.

 

Ya gotta love the Q.

Thanks Jay,
Yes, AP is fun.  I use the heading and altitude controls when approaching an airport to comply with Appr Control directives.  That way I can put all of my attention to looking for traffic.  I also have a better chance of not being violated due to my erratic flying practices.

Guess who’s using the cool little track/heading knob on their new AP?  Neato!

Congrats Jerry. Glad you got back “on the air” so you could get back “in the air”.  

I also got up there this afternoon for a nice jaunt around town. 30 minutes in the air and a good landing do wonders for the soul!

 

Cheers,

Jay
