Hi Jay

I like the protection over the control tube, is that just glass ?

Do you think it would be sufficient to use heavy duty velcro on the flanges rather than nuts ?

Hi Jim,

The F1 Cassutt racers were running 0200s at nearly 4000rpm at the time so "pumped up" possible for sure.
Pretty bog standard 0-235 in a Q felt more comfortable at sustained high cruise speeds but the law of diminishing returns still at play there.
Biggest practical difference was in useful acceleration and rate of climb from our shorter strips and ability to climb on top so more vertical than horizontal.

That looks a well constructed fuselage Corbin.

 I found that a few hours are spent setting up the various parts of the system so added a GENISIS socket to the installation ( thats a Ground Electrical Network Installation, System Interface Socket)

I can now charge either or both batteries and power the electrics without the worry of draining them dry, or major access work.  It also has some pick ups for other items, all in one plug. Lightweight, Quick and simple.

Re: Panel Progress

Jay Scheevel
 

Hi Corbin,

Love those military grade Amphenol disconnects that you have on the back side of the bulkhead. Very high quality work there. The only thing I would suggest is moving your fuel filter to a place that is easier to access and less messy to clean or replace. I did this by including a lockout valve next to the filter between it and then tank. This valve is always safetied open, except when doing maintenance. Closing it assures that tank contents will not backflow while I am changing the filter. You can then put the filter below the header tank for easier access and inspection. The easier it is to change or check something, the more likely you are to do it.

I agree with changing out the return line to the main tank also.

Good luck with the panel upgrade. You have a very nice plane there.

Cheers,
Jay

WOW!! How time flys.  I was still building and got married to Vicki later that year.
I remember that time you landed at Terre Haute for sumpin...probably fuel... and I ran from my hangar to exhaustion to see another Quickie.
I'll never forget that and you were even nice enough to visit.
Congratulations on your milestone.
