    Hi Tim,

    It is 3/16 on mine, but aware some have gone to 1/4. I have been chewing over this as it seems a good idea.

    Good luck with your build.

Not yet on to elevator controls proper, still doing aileron bits.

    Hi Tim,

    Is that a 1/4" bolt for your control rods ?

Yep, that’s how it’s supposed to be at the bottom of the stack. I don’t see any reason you can’t put it together with push rods either side of the stick where your current attach bolt is, but I have never seen one done that way.

Cheers,
Jay

Pete Stein update

Bruce Crain
 

This is Honey Lamb, 
 
I spoke with Pete Stein's wife, Kim, today. She wanted me to express thanks and gratitude to all the Q guys who have been involved with Pete and his Q. Kim, her daughters and Pete's Brother are in AZ.  Visiting is very restricted at the ICU and they only allow family for a few minutes she said.  Kim's daughter asked me to share the link that will have updates posted on Pete's progress. I will post the link below.  Pete is in a medically induced coma at present. The Neuro evaluation is pending due to the coma.  I told Kim we would be praying for them all. 
 
You Q guys/gals are an amazing group who are all supportive.  Many questions remain to what happened and I will not speculate.  I know we all ache for Pete and Gabe's family.  Blessings on them.

Re: Flew today

Sam Kittle
 

Our Friday breakfast group flew to Hollister, CA this morning, only two RV-6s and my Mighty Luscombe.  It was hot crossing the Central Valley due to an inversion layer and the headwinds were 20 knots at 5,000’.  I only climbed to 3,000’ to avoid the headwinds and clear the coastal mountains.  As I descended into the Salinas Valley the temperature dropped significantly due to a nice breeze coming off the Pacific Ocean(Hollister is only about 20 miles inland).  Following a wonderful breakfast, I climbed to 5,500’ for the return trip home.  The tailwind was now only 7 knots but the temperature was 80 degrees.  Maintained my altitude until 10 miles from our airport (Calaveras County, elevation 1320’).  When I landed, the temperature was 111 degrees, humidity was only 16 percent (it’s a dry heat but still hot).  I taxied direct to my hangar instead of topping off the fuel.

Still building!

90, you call that hot!  LOL.  Good flight report and good to stay current!  Good thing we're not in Phoenix!

I hate to say it but many of our beaches have a thing called "Red Tide" now.  It takes the O2 out of the water and kills masses of fish.  We had a phosphate mine leak 20 million gallons into Tampa Bay about 6 months ago and it might be the cause.  Anyway, lots of dead fish here!  Hope it clears up.  We are planning a trip to the Keys to do some snorkeling.  That's where we should all meet!

Eugen, sorry for this delayed reply, but a big thanks for making a website with your adventures! It's so interesting to see the construction of a Q1 with modern materials and techniques. I'll be following your progress!

Dear Q-list Group,
the Q1 fuselage assembly progress is stil on going, the last bulkhead 110 is on his place. So the next step will curve the outside of the fuselage to create the unique Q1 lines. Please find a link to my website, scroll down a liltle bit to reach the picture.
https://aerobase.weebly.com/q1-part-production.html <https://aerobase.weebly.com/q1-part-production.html>
During the whole progress I learn tons of stuff about foam, glass, resin, squeegee, flox, wet / dry / flush micro, vacuum bags and where my fingers should do not touch if sealing is placed and use all times a hat and much more ……………..what a wonderful journey :-)
Thank you guys that you kick me in that path :-)

Nice, Paul.  Glad you got up there and flew.  It’s way too hot for me down here in Dallas so I figured this summer is continued upgrades.  I’m a wimp in the heat.  

I do have a very nice Arctic Air cooler that I would love to mount in the baggage area for the summers.  Little big for the passenger seat but it fits there at least.

Re: Location of Reflexor Control

That helps to see one in the center location.  I might just go with the "if it ain't broke then don't fix it" method after more thought.  I don't want to enter my typical habit of overthinking things.

Corbin, I have mine in the center console, just aft of the stick and operate it with my left hand. It's mostly set-and-forget. I adjust it before takeoff, in cruise flight and when slowing down to enter the pattern.

Good afternoon all,

While I am in progress on the panel upgrade and re-mounting controls I wondered if anyone had their reflexor push/pull in a different location that they like better.  I think the plans called for it to be in the middle at a 30-degree tilt.  Mine is over on the left side aft of the throttle.  Seems like a good location to me and keeps my right hand free on the stick so I don't really have any problems.  But has anyone found an even better location that could be considered?  I am going to do something with my alt air control as it is just too crammed down under the throttle and mixture and is hard to reach.

Thank you.  I had a local guy who operates independently going around to different airports trying to get more general aviation jobs.  He typically does big jets.  I  can look up his contact info if you are interested in using him.  I just don't have it handy right now.
