Merry Christmas Mike, Santa has a Go Pro for me if Im good. Might be able to recipricate next year.

Question, do you use just the stick on mounts ?

I had a problem where my carb was fowling the plugs bad, to the point where the next start up failed the mag test.  I pulled the carb apart and thoroughly cleaned the passes related to the idle mixture area.  Seems if a tiny hole gets plugged in the idle needle then the carb pumps fuel into the mixture circuit.  
 
So what I thought was fun today was...  called in to land 8 miles out.  got a right downwind for RWY 18 (9730 feet long).  The wind was a 12K left crosswind (my personal limit is 15K).  Then was cleared to land #2 behind the Airbus on final.  Gota hate that.  So my plan is to stay high, way over his wing tip turbulence.  I was planning on landing long anyway as the taxiway to my hangar is at the end of this long runway.  
 
So I turn base after the Airbus goes by and I'm way high.  All the VASI lights are white.  The Airbus lands and I note where he touched down.  The tower tells me to do an S-turn.  Then the tower clears a Cherokee for take off.  I see the Cherokee sitting on the numbers and think to myself...this isn't going to work out.  After a couple of really slow S-Turns (I'm at 90 mph), I see the Cherokee making some progress getting off the runway.  The Tower tells me to land long.  I hear the tower tell whoever is following me that it's going to work out as I'm landing long and he needs to keep us only 3000' apart!  I get back into landing mode and make a good landing and hard braking to make the turn off that I need to make.  Never a dull moment at KPIE! 
 
Back at the hangar I do a runup to check the mags and everything looks great.  Hopefully my plug fouling is fixed!

Re: Today's tour

Thanks Sam for another good session.

You know it has been a good session when you take something away that makes you think or helps formulate new ideas, and from all these Tour sessions there is always food for thought.

Over the years I have received lots of helpful information from this group that has improved my Q education and steered me hopefully down the right path, and for that I thank you guys.

Happy Christmas y'all.  Fly Safe.

Re: Reminder: Q-List Zoom meeting - Ask the Pilots - Saturday 11 December - 0900 Central Time

Jay Scheevel
 

There is a range of relative angle of wing-to-canard incidence (decalage) and it is a unique for every Q-type aircraft. I measured a pretty fair number of these (22 planes at last count). I did these measurements first hand and found that there was almost 6 degrees range of decalage through all of the planes I measured. In aerodynamic terms, 6 degrees is a large range.

 

Jerry is relaying a very real story about his planes behavior with reflexor, but his wing decalage is about 4.5 degrees different than mine (his favoring nose pitching down relative to mine), thus he will be using trailing edge up reflexor and I will be using trailing edge down reflexor in identical phases of flight. Everyone will tend to give the best advice relative to their own experience in their own plane, so this is why you will hear legitimately different advice from different Q pilots.

 

In my opinion, it is best not to use reflexor at all at first, but be ready to apply it gradually when you know how much you need it if you are in the initial stages of test flying. Then only make small changes in a safe flight environment. When you are ready to begin using the reflexor for landings, you can simulate landings at 3 or 4 thousand feet AGL, to see if you can arrest any sink while using your landing configuration and power settings. If you cannot change a decent into level or a climb with full aft stick, then you are in the unpleasant territory that Jerry mentions and you need to revise your reflexor settings discipline prior to trying to land it with reflexor.

 

If you want to know where your decalage is in the spectrum, I have developed a reliable method of measuring the decalage and I would be happy to help you do those measurements prior to flying if you want contact me offline.

 

If you want to review what I have written up on this subject. Have a look at the following:

http://n8wq.scheevel.com/documents/Scheevel_impact_of_decalage.pdf

Beware of trailing edge down reflexer. It can over power the elevator and drive you into the dirt. Nearly happened to me. Reversing the reflexer saved me.  I have since put a stop so it can't go past neutral. Jerry

Anthony,
 From memory. I believe the limits on the reflector are 2° down and 6° up according to plans.
I have never flown my plane with any trailing edge down setting.
They are all hand built. So yours may be different.

Very interesting and informative as always.   Thanks everyone.

Follow-up on a comment by Chris Walterson and maybe a terminology lesson for me.
Chris was talking about the main wing not flying and needed to "add reflexor"  
When I think of adding reflexor, that would reduce lift on the main wing  and increase aircraft pitch.
It sounds like what he did was to add flaps, as in flaperons.
Is this correct?
How much "down aileron" can people get from their reflexor system?
I would have thought none because reflex means deflect control surface up?

I agree!
All of the “episodes” have been great.
This one proves the cohesiveness of the group, and willingness, zeal, to welcome new aviators into the fold.

Sam,
Kudos for all the time you have put into this effort. You are the patriarch, even though Jerry is old as hell!!

You are right, Brent. This is a really close group and have a great combination of loving these little airplanes and having a lot of patience for those who are learning. Also, they never give up, which is why I suppose we still have some of these great birds still flying regularly.  You really need to experience all these guys in person, so if you can make it to the Field of Dreams…. Kevin is one of a kind and from what I understood today, he will be your humble host in 2022! Yay!

 

Cheers,

Jay

Thanks guys, really good info. And thanks again to Same for putting this all together. I'm part of a few different aircraft groups and they aren't like this. Between the Q-tours and the yearly fly-ins, you guys have a really good group!
