Took to the beautiful clear blue skies of western Colorado this morning for about 50 minutes of fun in my Q.

I made one low pass “option” at my home airport, and glancing down briefly at the AS strip on the EFIS, I thought I saw 190 mph IAS. I suspected I might be imagining things, but my EFIS data download shows 192 IAS and 206 TAS. I think that is the fastest my plane has been so far. Made a very nice landing, so it really topped off the fun. I spent the rest of the morning laying on my back rubbing my plane’s belly. I think it likes that. I thought I heard it purring. I agree with Kevin B. It is too much fun flying these little Q-beasts. If you are building and not yet flying, keep pushing along. You will finish it at some point and then the fun begins.

Uh Oh, i only just now checked e-mail, and wanted to send Birthday wishes to Terry as well! Sorry for being a tad late!  And retirement around the corner too??  Wow that's huge, you're gonna love it! We just might see that Cozy in Enid come September!

Again, Happy Birthday... and you thought you were through with hearing wishes...  Lol!

Re: Resin volume placed on foam

Would it help the Cozy Girls low vac pressure to extract extra epoxie and lay the fibers out flatter?  I may be spitting into the wind here.  Somebody talk me down.

 Bruce,

Vacuum bags provide uniform pressure. Weights do not. 25” of mercury is about 10 lb/in sq or 1440 lbs per ft sq. By reducing the vacuum to 5” Hg (shop vac) it would be about 200 lb / ft sq.

You end up with thinner face sheets that may weigh less but the buckling resistance is less than hand laid laminates. Stiffness is a cube function of thickness.

That is essentially what the vacuum is doing. If you draw a full vacuum, it is like putting 15 pounds of weight on every square inch. Practically, a full vacuum is not possible, but even 2/3 vacuum would be 10 psi.

Re: Resin volume placed on foam

 I have driven between Frankfurt and Munchin, in Winter; and travelled from Autobahn 7 to 3 through Wuerzburg. The Bavarian flag is on my home here in Mannford, Oklahoma. My Grandfather arrived from Dresden, immigrated to the States prior to the first world war in 1910. Both he and my Father were expert mechanics and machinists but neither were pilots nor interested in learning to fly. 

 About the cowling..indeed..consider the entire cowling. German technical experience in composites manufacture are very accurate in the correct resin and processes for this material. Much has to do with the finish on the woven fiber to assist in resin binding, and Kevlar with this improved finish is available in Europe. Kevlar is quite effective in sound deadening. It is difficult to cleanly cut, but the lightness and great strength make it worth the effort. If you lived in other Nations in Europe I would hesitate to suggest this but sailplane aircraft in Germany are advanced in this material use.  I do not have Q1 engineering on hand. It would be worth your time to locate the sailplane builders and visit with them about 100% Kevlar and also the hybrid/blended composite fabrics. I am sure they will be very interested in you Q!! It is unique. Probably few if any have ever seen one.    

 I am aware that the racing engine builders of your engine have improved greatly the performance and durability. I once flew a Q1 with the Onan 22hp (weak). There was another builder in the area at the time modified a Norton Rotary from a motorcycle in his aircraft. He used a machined belt drive he engineered and machined in his own shop. Noisy but it was powerful for the size. 

 In production settings we use rubber caul sheets to capture the parimeter of parts. It prevents the fabric from creeping over edges and bonding as described. Then again..money spent but time saved.

Vern,
we stay in Wuerzburg area in Bavaria between Nuernberg and Frankfurt. 

In which area of the cowling you mean to replace it with Kevelar 49? Any picture or small sketches available?

For the Q1 I choice a B&S Vanguard 679cc comes in standard performance with 23hp and additional some modifications I will placed like, High compression cast pistons, Billet rods with racing spec. bolts, Timing advanced 8°, Longer duration camshaft to shift the power band upwards, Upgraded valve gear to give more valve lift, stronger parts and prevent valve bounce, free flow filter and adapter ‘High altitude’ jet kit, Tuned length exhaust pipes, although simpler one may work well too. The requested parts will come from the US because they are some very proficient companies to support that engine.

 

So far the next parts are in the bag, it´s the Bulkhead 153.7 and AFT Canopy Bulkhead. But in that case I turn the top to bottom, because the vacuum causes the glass fibre to wrap around the corner of the prey part and thus the end faces are also glued together, which then has to be removed with a cutter.

Best regards

Eugen

Happy belated birthday Terry! Looking forward to seeing you and your Cozy in September. Nice to hear that you will be retiring soon. Us retired folks are always seeking new retirees to fly with. Take care.

Terry,
Glad you added the smiley face.  I was a little worried for a split second.
Told you I had sumpin in mind didn't I?
I hope you had a good day and that maybe we were able to add a little to it.
Thanks again everyone.
Keith

Thanks everybody, Keith I will deal with you later :)  1955 was the year. Last day of work is May 31. I do have high hopes that not having to go to work every day will speed up completion of the Cozy.
