elevator reducer

Mike Steinsland
 

Hi guys,
 I've been working on my elevator controls...on and off on and off... I've lubricated the torque tube that fits into the reducer in the elevator . It takes a bit of effort to get the control tube in and out but thats to be expected with a tight fit. I went to the effort of putting a small screw through the elevator tube and into the reducer to keep it from moving out alignment with all the on and off.  I can't imagine what it will be like trying to get the control tube out of that reducer if there is any corrosion because of the steel on aluminum.

Has anybody considered replacing the aluminum reducers with a nylon reducers?

Hi Eugen,

 

  1. The foam is cut to size before applying the glass. You will need to round the corners of the cut off edges to allow the glass to lay smoothly across the corner without pulling up to capture an air bubble underneath (see the composite education section of the plans).
  2. Not sure what you are saying here. Keep in mind that I built a Q2 not a Q1, so there are some differences.
  3. You should peel ply the front and back where you will bond it to the bulkhead with flox and glass between the bulkhead and the wing.

 

Cheers,

Jay

Thank you very much for your response. That will help me again. 

 

So another question about the fuselage side situation. Please find in the attachment a picture of the fuselage side after glassing, come from the Q1 construction manual.

 

The questions may sound a bit silly, but for my full understanding below some questions about the fuselage. Maybe I should just put the construction manual aside for two days and think about the process again. I feel like I've gone through the process a hundred times in my head……..

 

 

a) Should the shape of the canard and from the wing into the fuselage side be cut out before laminating with fiberglass or is that done later? Judging from the picture in the builders manual, the shape of the canard and wing are not cut out before laminating with fiberglass (see attachment). Am I correct?

 

b) Should laminating from the inside fuselage side with fiberglass be done on a straight surface? Will the fuselage side still be supple enough after laminating with fiberglass on one side that it will still be possible to contact the fuselage bottom during assembly? Or should the fuselage side also be done on a defenestrated curved run like the fuselage bottom? This is not yet completely clear to me. 

 

c) Should the laminate, after the resin has been applied, still be covered with peel ply, with the aim of achieving a rough surface for the subsequent bonding? Or is it sufficient to line the contact points of the frames with the peel ply? Or simply leave them out completely and just grind the contact points? 

 

Thank you very much for your support.

 

Best regards

I interpreted it to mean the leading edge of the wing - the point farthest forward.  So neither 0 nor 1, but in between them where the nose sticks out the farthest.

 

At least that's how I did it ~35 years ago!  So far it has been working.

Dear Q-Experts,

I have a short question about the assembly of fuselage and the Wing. Please find in the attachment a short cut from fuselage and the Wing BL00.

In the plans on Page 7-8 is a short note in the fuselage: Use Wing BL00 template with leading edge at STA 78.3 and template level line on WL31.0 (16" above W.L.15).

So far so good, but wich point on the Wing BL00 template should connect to the edge at STA 78.3? Is that the point 0 (zero) or 1 (one) or which one on the Wing BL00 template? 

I've read through this 10 times now and still haven't come to a solution. Looks like to miss the obvious ......

  1. No, you are not correct.
  2. Yes; yes; no.
  3. Read the plans again.

 

In your annotations of the picture from the plans, you have misidentified the location of the main wing. The main wing resides in the bay just forward of where your arrow points, where the fuselage side is already contoured as a saddle to cradle the underside of the wing. This also should answer your question about the canard and main wing shapes – yes, they’re already supposed to be cut into the foam before the inside of the fuselage is glassed (I think).

height

Installing my inboard landing gear and need some info.  Does anyone know the height of the longeron at the seat back position, or the clearance under the canard at the firewall?

On the try  gear,  is the fuselage bottom taller than the tail dragger at the firewall?  The height I have now is a bit tall and with  my old hips it may be a chore to get in. It is not to big of a deal the shorten my gear and better now than later.

Any pictures with you standing near the cockpit would also help. I also remember somewhere they were talking about the longeron level line being around 7.5 degree when sitting still. Does that make sense?

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

Re: Q1 Fuselage and Wing BL00

Chris Walterson
 

Eugen----------  Just finished doing this.   You need to trim some foam from the front of the wing wide enough for the fuselage..   You will measure the distance between the wing bulkhead to the seat back bulkhead. The distance between in my case I think is about 16 1/4 inches. You need to trim the front of the foam on the wing so that the wing when finished with glass is no more than the distance between the two bulkhead.

 I held my template against the turtle deck side while everything was level and cut out the deck.  The wing fit almost perfect into the cradle although you need to trim the turtle deck behind the seatback bulkhead more so the wing will fold in place.

 Canard is treated similar.  Take care-----------  Chris

Good to hear Jerry.

I’m still weathered out. Between IFR, and snow on the runway, no dice.

Better days ahead!

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.
