Put 4 shot bags in there to see if she's ready for me.  :)

Glad your testing is progressing successfully.


Flight Report(s)

Jay Scheevel
 

After enjoying Peter’s Q2 and his hangar presentation yesterday on Zoom, I went out to fly my Q in the beautiful crisp clear blue fall sky here in western Colorado. The main focus of my flight was to put the remainder of my shot bag ballast in the plane and see how it responded with more aft cg. My shot bags are 50 pound bags of steel blasting beads and I have 3 of them for a total of 150 lb.. I have a cloth cover bag for each shot bag that has handles, so I can carry them and put them in the passenger seat one at a time and buckle them all in with the seat belt.

 

The flight was good. Took only slightly longer to get off the runway, and climbed out between 500 to 700 fpm at about 95 mph IAS.  I found that I did not lose much performance on the high end with my steely passenger on board, and the plane was very stable in pitch after trimming it for cruise flight. The only real noticeable change was I needed some left roll trim to stay level. I did a few practice approaches to my relatively short field, so I knew that I could get a nice landing and I did get a nice landing. So, that was a successful completion of the shot bag passenger program. As far as my passengers, they were very well behaved. Here is a very short video of one of my passes down the runway from yesterday (http://n8wq.scheevel.com/videos/IMG_0870.MOV ).

 

So…. I went out to the airport again today, since I had a little tinkering that I needed to do. I took the shot bags out of the plane to work in back of the seat a little and after this, I was putting in some more gas to go for a short flight when one of my airport friends, Jerry, who is a retired AI stopped by and expressed an interest in also being ballast (I realized that I have a lot of friends named Jerry!). Unlike one of my other friends named Jerry, this one is short and weighs only about 130 pounds, so we agreed he would be my first passenger.

 

Off we went. The air was a little warmer than yesterday (close to 60 deg. F) since it was early afternoon when we took off, so DA was about 5200 feet (field is 4750 MSL). Take off was about the same as yesterday and we climbed nicely at about 600 fpm at 95 IAS.  Went away from the field and did some air work. I gave him the plane and was surprised to find that he was not very stable in altitude (he has like 10,000 hours in all different small planes). I think it was because he is short and was sitting down in the plane a bit more than he is used to, so forward view tends to make you want to dive a little. I showed him how nicely it turns tight, which still impresses me, then we went back to the airport and did one test pass, and a second completed landing which turned out very nice, so I did not scare either one of us, which is a plus.

 

So another milestone passes for me…I have flown the first passenger in my Quickie! Now I will see if I can talk my wife into flying with me. She is the same size as Jerry who flew with me today.

 

Cheers,

Jay Scheevel  --Tri-Q2, 194 hours

tilt forward canopymods

Mike Steinsland
 

Hi Guys,
I'm doing a forward tilting canopy,
I have the drawings for this but I'm not sure about how the back of the canopy is modified.
I see that the bottom rear is cut at an angle to allow for clearance as it tilts up and away from the seat bulkhead.
If anybody has those dimensions and maybe some photos they could send me I would really appreciate it.

Any suggestions as to what to watch out for while I'm doing this would also be appreciated.

Cheers
Mike

Re: Engine Question

Frankenbird Vern
 

 Yes.. that's them, Bruce.  The two shops next to each other, between them are working many a light aircraft engine. 

 Busy shop!   That is where I will be taking my GM Nitrided crankshafts to have mag checked for the Frankenbird and 
Capella.

 We are fortunate that NDI is available in Tulsa at several locations, and being in the center of the 48 States 
makes the shipping cost level for businesses or individuals.

 Give them a call. Divco.

Maybe try calling Don's Dream Machines down here in the SE? Don specialized in the baby continentals for the Cub crowd; looks like he got bought out in 2017 from the FB page though:

I am surprised in Mike's neck of the woods no shops work on certificated engines and yellow tag support overhaul parts such as this. Tulsa has a large 
following of Lycosaurus shops..not far from Spartan schools. Anything and everything. They might also be privy to Teledyne. I'll call them when I get
back in two weeks and ask for pricing.

Absolutely Vern they did steal their colors!
Beatrice works well!  They have a big sports bar and grill where Paul Fisher can use his tv changer when the Huskers are playing and everyone is locked on the game!  You might want to take some videos as it might get rowdy!  They also have two cross runways that came in handy when Honey Lamb and I landed in 45 knot winds!  The wind was straight down one of the runways and we must have only used 150’ of runway!  It was awesome!

  Ok.. so to the Q-List.. in one week from today I'll be heading back to Oklahoma...and my hangar build. 

This is life as a Contract Engineer. The Onion (er...Union that is) has a good point  (and a legal contract) that says the company MUST bring back Direct 
folks that were on layoff since before Summer, BEFORE Contractors can be placed in those jobs. Fair enough..no arguments.

  So..company has to say "Adios no Amigo!" to every Contract silverback in this same job function.  My manager was not a happy camper but I told
 him that it's not a big deal..I have seen worse at other aircraft factories. Spirit Aerosystems for one. 

 To be honest guys.. the NW rain/grey skys/showers in the last two months has almost been nonstop. Had a few nice days since early October..but overall 
I'd rather not have this much such as 100% humidity for weeks on end. This weekend the forecast?  Suprise!! Rain and more rain.  I am lovin those
Q tours tho.. getting lots of great pointers guys... and I am looking forward to the time when I can present the Frankenbird show too. 

 It's all good.. sometimes better than others is all. 🙂
