These folks make a Long-EZ Main gear. Maybe a place to start by contacting them.

For what it is worth, the Long-Ez landing gear is made of unidirectional S-glass, from various vendors.  The builder then has to wrap the gear with several layers of "BID" fiberglass/epoxy at a 45 degree angle.   After the gear is mounted, then additional plies may be needed where the wheel axle mount to provide correct alignment for "toe-in", etc.

As for the final thickness, I would do some test layups to determine the number of layers of glass for the final dimension.   You might want to read up on "post-curing" the epoxy/glass part too.

Hope this helps.

Hoop Gear Suggestions

J-Dubs
 

I know it is slightly off topic but I feel like the knowledge base here is also quite deep so I hope it is okay to ask.  I have been trying to have a production run of hoop gear made for the Dragonfly list but have failed.  I believe that I will have to make my own.  This leaves me with a few questions:
1. Are there any design improvements that should be included?  I am thinking of adding 2 fiberglass sleeves for the final layers to help prevent cracking.

2.  In estimating material to get to 0.75" thick, do I just use the fiberglass thickness or do I add something to allow for wetted thickness?

3. Which resin is preferred for a hoop gear application?


Larry Koutz Quickie Information Database 1983-1994 #file-notice

In my ongoing attempts to archive materials provided with my build, I added a copy of Larry Koutz Quickie Information Database spanning 1983-1994 to the "Files" section of the group. The file is scanned in at 300 dpi (archival quality) and I performed optical character recognition to make the 20 pages of information searchable:

Larry Koutz Quickie Information Database 1983-1994

From the title page: "This is a compilation of information taken from various sources and shows where to find the information. It lists the type of aircraft the topic is applicable. The references are QT= Quicktalk newsletter. The first issue is Mar/Apr 1982 and continues to this day. It is edited by Jim Masal and can be obtained by writing Quickie Builders Assn. P.O.

This publication was put out by the Quickie factory and is no longer in business. The comments are to get a better idea of the topic or a distillation of the important points in the article.

Hi.  I now have Paul Spackman's Q200, at KLMO.
The brake controls are now located right by the throttle, and I want to move these brakes controls  to the rudder pedals.
Looking through the plans I am unable to find the List of Materials…not those on Page 1, but a list which tells the dimensions, and material of each part, such as the brake pedal shown in the plans,  Q2BSW1, for example. I have two master cylinders that will work with the original plans idea butI will make new pedals similar to the  original design, to work with my Cleveland 10-35s.

Also want to buy a canopy cover, somewhere.
Any suggestions are much appreciated. Terry

Re: materials list for parts

My canopy cover is a rainproof rain cover for a four season tent.  I fold it in half to cover the canopy and then criss cross it underneath the plane and run straps out to the tie downs on the ramp.  Keeps the rain cover snug on the canopy and keeps the plane in place.  Good enough for light winds but if it gets real sporty I find a hangar.  

I would love a proper fitted cover but don’t believe anyone makes them any longer.

 Not just covers (that too)...I ask about todays sources also because I am not sure I can save my canopy. The spray-lat has been on a long time and I am not confident that "goof-off" will work.  The canopy on my forward upper shell is fitted ruff..

 Maybe build a set from existing parts stock? The early Cessna 140/150 pedals are light and have master cylinders very easy to repair or maintain. That was my plan anyway since I also have zero metal parts from the original Q2 kit. The Cessna pedals are press formed..I think they were O condition 2024 .080" or possibly .100"  then heat treated probably to T3.  I danced a LOT on my set in my taildragger converter 1962 B model 150 over the 15 years I owned the aircraft 😊  

  A few mods I would do (if this is also your choice option) is change the pivot design a bit and swap the master cylinder actuation bracket on both pedals to steel. The pivot holes wear over time of course and adding bronze bushings solves that issue. The actuation bracket to the brake cylinder rods being both stronger and more durable is a small weight gain but a big confidence addition.  

 Trade a Plane has many offerings of these, including for aircraft salvage businesses. I will use the early design tho..not the later. The 1966 and later are Aluminum castings. They are taller and heavier by far.     

  The canopy is another story.  You guys know the source? I seem to remember Todds is no more?

Re: 2022 First Flight N8WQ

Hi Jerry,

 

I have tie-downs anchors on the bottom of the canard wingtip. Construction details are shown below. Yesterday, while waiting for the oil to heat up, I built a small aluminum bracket that bolts to the tie-down anchor and then I mounted the camera to that bracket. If you have a tie-down on the canard somewhere, you could do some variation on this theme.

 

Cheers,

Jay

I have left some superfluous taxing in the video, so that you taildragger folks can see why the standard gear would not be a good idea a my home field.  I also have left in my runup, take off and landing, so you can get a feel for my homefield in all phases of flight.

Mack Mesa 10CO, is like Goldilocks: Land too short, it is no good. Land too long, it is no good. Land just right (as in the video), it is…well…just right 😊.  The scenic part starts around the middle of the video and obviously the take off is near the start and the landing is near the end.  Wear your headphones or have good speakers so you can hear the silky, throaty, rumble of my six banger!  

 

I am still learning how to use the camera, so my videos should improve in the future.

Well, I finally got around to my first flight of 2022 this afternoon. It was a beautiful day to fly, and I decided to try mounting a video camera to the lower wingtip of my canard, so you can all see for yourselves if you wish.

 

I have left some superfluous taxing in the video, so that you taildragger folks can see why the standard gear would not be a good idea a my home field.  I also have left in my runup, take off and landing, so you can get a feel for my homefield in all phases of flight.

Mack Mesa 10CO, is like Goldilocks: Land too short, it is no good. Land too long, it is no good. Land just right (as in the video), it is…well…just right 😊.  The scenic part starts around the middle of the video and obviously the take off is near the start and the landing is near the end.  Wear your headphones or have good speakers so you can hear the silky, throaty, rumble of my six banger!  

 

I am still learning how to use the camera, so my videos should improve in the future.

Hi Richard,

This time of year it is 2600 feet long. There is 600 feet of grass off the approach end of 25, but that’s currently covered with snow. I only use the pavement but when landing east I have the grass as an emergency over run.

Cheers,
Jay
