Hi Jon,

It is ALMOST funny that you are in Farmington. I was in Apple Valley (based
at Flying Cloud) for eleven years (left MN in 2006?? - I think, can't
remember for sure) - now in New Mexico.

Hey to all

As a long time lurking member of this group the poll has encouraged me
to send a post updating my progress. I am installing a Corvair engine
in a TriQ200. For the most part I have been working steadily on it
since 2005. I reached the point where the next step was the wiring last
winter (08-09). I began studying and drawing a wiring schematic than.
The wiring stage which has proved to be somewhat challenging for a
couple of reasons; First, for a long time I hoped to use the wire that
was in the airframe when I bought it. But after finding a variety of
questionable practices and automotive materials I decided to start over
and gutted it all. Secondly I personally had a major set back in March
when I took a long fall down a tall roof access to a sudden stop at the
bottom (I'm pretty sure it was that sudden stop that was the problem)
which resulted in the typical surgery rehab etc etc. My injury was
sever enough that I was unable to return to my commercial HVAC tech job
. This slowed my working schedule to almost zero until this fall.
The good news is that at the end of October I was hired as an
avionics technician trainee at SteinAir in Farmington, MN. They
started me out putting pins on wires and I am now building harnesses
and prewiring instruments. This experience has really helped with and
the TriQVair is coming along well now. I hope to finish the wiring in
the next few months and than I will re-install the engine and go for a
startup.
Thanks to all of you that keep this group going.

Hi Raoul,

I have a 500Mb video file but apparently the file wasn't closed properly when the camera hit the runway so it is corrupt. This type of problem appears to be relatively common as there are a few software utilities that will reportedly fix it. I am just a cheapskate and don't want to spend any money on software....

Hi all,



I learned a little tip today that someone else might find helpful. The
"mounting hole" (like for a tripod) in the Aiptek HD Action camera, and
I
assume most other cameras, will pull out of the camera body if
stressed. One
"stress" that might do this is landing with the camera mounted on the
vertical fin.



Of course, when this "mounting hole/doo-hickey" pulls out of the camera
body, the camera falls clear of the mount.



The good news though is that the camera will still work if you are able
to
find all of the pieces on the runway (except for the broken glass lens
cover).



Not that I have only tested this at about 70 mph - a guess based on the
final resting place of the camera pieces versus the touchdown point.

Engine Fuel Burn and Spec's

Rich Gillen
 

Hello:

There seems to be some people putting down certain engines, but offer no
real facts. What is your fuel burn for your engine your using? It would help
all of us, if you included some info about your specific engine, HP, STOCK,
CAM, CFM, RPM, COMPRESSION, WEIGHT of plane, Turbo, GAS carried, etc. Just
delete the others and put your engine spec's in. If yours isn't listed
just add it. You all have a MAXIMUM RPM for take off and then throttle back to
a different %'s. Some planes are more aerodynamic, less drag than others.

Rich Gillen
Ames, IA

PS Right now, I just bought a T-Bird I a few months ago just before I got
sick and never got to fly it. It has a Rotax 503(52HP), electric start, K&N
air filters, stock carbs, 10 gallons of fuel, full enclosure, tri gear.
Since I have been sick, I haven't got a chance to weigh it, or fly it. Now
winter is upon us, hope to be better by spring. I'm hoping to build a Rotax
670(137HP) RAVE backed down to 100-105HP over the winter, maybe for a Q200
tri gear project.

Quentin Durham was building some years ago and contacted me as he was selling his project so I guess it was never completed that accounts for four.

I would agree that the Jabiru 3300 as Paul Spackman is light, smoother aswell no doubt, and also plenty of money.

There is a XL spread sheet " Taildragger toe brakes and weights" which I will update shortly that has some of the weights on.

Hi Jon,

Sounds like you might be close to me. I live just north of Rochester and  I'm building a Dragonfly Mark III.  Like you, I'm in the middle of the wiring phase myself.  We'll have to compare notes sometime.  You may also want to go to the Spring Fling flyin this May in Decorah, IA.  It's a chance to meet other Quickie and Dragonfly builders and get some free advice on building problems, see some great looking planes, get rides, etc.

Re: 37 hp 40 kg Wankel, a ringading ding.

Mike Perry
 

Hello Roger:

I don't think Wankel engines require quite as much "dinking around trying to get it just right" as two strokes. However, they do consume more fuel than typical Lycomings and Continentals.

There is an interesting article in EAA Sport Aviation May 2006 comparing two Wankel powered RV8s to two with Lycomings. Basically the Wankels were faster (more HP?), noisier and burned more gas. They were easier to start and they are immune to shock cooling. Interesting reading.

Mike Perry

Isaksson Roger wrote:


Never was impressed with the Wankel, it is basically a rotating 2 stroke, it needs a lot of fuel to keep it running. There are however a following on those engines, Rotary or Wankel engines have been successfully installed and flied.

Reliability can be good, but everything has to be just right, and as any 2 stroke, they are finnicky, and needs tweaking to be set up just right.

A fair assessment would probably be that much of your flying experience, if you choose a rotary or two stroke, will be to dink around trying to get it just right, over and over again.

Hot and dry one day and cold and wet another day, will often be enough reason to get your engine cover off, and start tweaking.

Weight savings from two strokes are also most often overrated, they have a very narrow powerband and require in most cases a redrive, added weight, they need often a tuend exhaust that mostly end up like a barrel, sitting outside the aircraft, reminding about the size of the chromed aircleaners on a Peterbuilt. Added weight and a lot of drag.

2 Strokes have one of the inherently scientific unexplained abilities to "just stop". and no explanation can be found.

Air, fuelmixture, spark can be set exactly as it should, but all it will deliver is silence.

Pull the starter rope and it will start again, ...I think they come with an engine Gnome.

Then as another aspect of it, it might be just me, but an airplane taxiing out to the runway on a sunny Sunday afternoon, just shouldnt say ...Ringa ding..ding...ding...ding...
