Re: Vortex Generators (VGs) on the GU Canard

Frankenbird Vern
 

 From memory my project original buyer from QAC first invoiced also in 1984. No FWF, no spars, but does have orange foam cut rather ruff. No glass, no metal items. 

 I purchased it knowing these facts. More than all of this.. I have every purchase invoice and letter, original plans set, the correct kit number. All newsletters, option sketches of mods. 
The canopy is on the shell with forward hinge (that is going to change). All bulkheads are complete and do appear to be correct to Engineering. All 4 shells are present 
without extreme rash and the join plywood tools are made and identified. Total was $700 with some bargaining in the front parking lot at Luxor in Las Vegas where I 
met the seller half way back when I lived in Taos County.  

 Ironically QAC delivered the entire kit, engine also, to Henderson Nevada (10 miles from where I bought it)..then it went to California Central Valley, Taos and now Oklahoma. 
It is interesting to learn we may have "cousins" in serial numbers of the kits, Jay.  When I get back home I will verify the QAC serial and year of sale. I do remember the cost was 
well north of what I paid!

The Q2 was introduced in October, 1980 with the GU canard and first deliveries were made in January, 1981. First disclosure by QAC of the existence of the LS1 canard was in October of 1982 after it had been built and flown on the prototype. Notably, there was no mention of using carbon fiber spars in the construction of the prototype Q2 LS1 canard in that initial announcement (QAC Quickie Newsletter #18).

 

QAC approved and began shipping Q2/Q200 kits with the LS1 canard in January of 1983. The LS1 canard accompanied the announcement of the Q200 and included an upgrade in gross weight and powerplant options.  I think they had shipped more than 400 Q2-GU kits by the time they started shipping LS1 canards, but this is just a guess.

 

I bought my Q200 kit in mid 1984 and it was serial number 2868, meaning it was the 868th  Q2/200 kit they had sold.

 

Many builders did not buy all the sub kits, but I bet it is safe to assume that at least 300 Q2 kits with GU canard were sold. How many were built and flown is anyone’s guess.

Jay

72 PSI sounds quite high Bruce.

Hi Tim,

 

Mine move like yours also. Not sure the amount, since I did not measure it, but it is primarily to be only significant in full roll deflection. You will notice the deflection of the elevators is sympathetic to the ailerons (in the same sense), so I really would not worry about it. If you are in the very rare circumstance that calls for full bank, you are probably looking for all the help you can get, so  a little deflection on the elevators is probably a good thing. I think if you poll the Tri-Q drivers in the group, you will find that they all have similar observations.

 

Cheers,

Jay

Managed to get the control rods the correct length today and then fit the spring pitch trim.

I notice the elevator horns move about 1/2” relative to each other when rolling, I know the plans suggest this will happen but is that about the right amount? It just seems a bit wired, but seems to come with the design.

The elevator movement when roll input is used adds to the roll rate of the aircraft.  Makes it have good roll rate even at landing speeds.

I am using the “lamb” tire (11” on 5 inch rim), same as the original mains. I had intended to have the same tires all around on mine, so I could carry one spare. I ended up changing my mains to 5.00 X 5 AirHawk tires, but kept the lamb up front. You will not be able to use this unless you have the upgraded gear leg ala Scott Swing or Richard Kaczmarek.

 

Cheers,

Jay

Subject: [Q-List] Front Tyre

 

Interested in what front tyre people are using on the Tri gear.
Mine currently has a 10x 3.50 x 4 McReary Airtrac (https://www.lasaero.com/products/article/W006S408F) which is quite square in profile and I was thinking to swap it for a more rounded (like main tyres). Aircraft hasn’t flown yet… Tyre is just old so needs replacement.

Might replace with Aero classic 10/350-4 (https://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/lgpages/aero_rib_10_350_460.php) Or keep the McReary…

Any experience and advice appreciated!

Thanks, Tim

Good day Chris,

Congratulations on your first flight in the Quickie. For what it's worth, you have just become part of a small select group. My only comment is, take it easy and go slow on your first flights, testing and learning your airplane. I went thru a complete flight test procedure, SLOWLY progressing on each flight. Now is not the time to go fast and make aggressive maneuvers. That all comes in time. Further when you get around 100 hours, sharpen your wits, because that's when you start getting comfortable and shit hits the fan. Just be prepared. I wish you the best in your upcoming flights. We are all here to help you. You are going to have a lot of fun with the Quickie!         

Best regards,
Jim Patillo

 Brent-----------  No high performance rating. I was instructed to
measure wing tip to tip and do the math using the fuselage as a lifting
surface so it worked out okay. My wing loading just slide in under the
numbers.----------  Chris
