Quickie Q-200 for sale

James Cartwright <james.cartwright@...>
 

Guys, I have been a part of the group for some time now as I have worked on my plane for several years and then had to put it aside due to some life events. I have just had one of the most un-expected life event happen to me. August 25 my wife gave birth to my first child which is my baby girl. I had not planned on this in my life but now I can not imagine being here with out her. All of this said I have made a decision that I would have never thought I would make. I am going to sell my Quickie Q-200 for a four seater. I appreciate the help from many of you and will be sad to see my Q-200 go. I have both the plane and engine that I will be putting up for sale if anyone is interested please let me know. I am looking for a Cessna 170 to take her place as our family wagon.

Thanks,

James Cartwright

--Hey Guy's, This is an unneccessary event. This was Kelly Poors old
plane. I have flown this plane and have spoken with Chris on a
couple occasions. I offered my help as well as the groups to this
guy and his failure is a waste! Not only is a good flying rare
airplane destroyed, the cause will probably be blamed on the
airplane. One question Chris.... Where were you when you needed help
flying? I'm glad you're alright! But, very sad this had to
happen....Ron

Update on the Tandem Wing Fly-in at Emporia, KS in 18 days!!!

spudspornitzks <spudspornitz@...>
 

Hello Everyone,

I hope everyone had a good Labor day,

Our 16th Annual Field of Dreams Tandem Wing fly-in is only 18 days a
way and everything is shaping up quite nicely, pre-registrations are
rolling in, etc.

I told everyone when we did the last update that we had a special
event just for those flying in their Q's or DF's. We're having the
first annual Q/DF Bird Poker Run. That's right girls and guys; we're
playing "Texas Hold"em Poker". The "Poker Pot" will be based on a
percentage of the overall attendance dollars. We'll pay out two of
three places and of course the final hands will all be played at the
Saturday Night awards banquet where we'll draw those last two cards
(Can you feel the excitement building already). Should be a lot of fun
and great way to winning a little gas money to make that return flight
home just a little bit more fun! If we have any poker playing nuts out
there (no Q/DF pilots) that would like to handle this portion of the
event I would really appreciate the help and their knowledge.

Suggestion: For those traveling in by car. There is a neat area that
is back in the trees on the grass, but right on the edge across from
the main display/ramp area. Bring your comfy chair/recliners (folding)
as it's an awesome spot to watch the whole event "Relaxed".

For those Q/DF pilots that are flying into the event and would like to
camp. I have a few extra small tents. If the is any Q/DF pilots that
would like to camp, but don't want to haul the tents, pillows, etc.
let me know, first come-first served basis….

So you haven't sent in your registration yet!
I'll save my "Last-Minute-Louie: and "Hello Mr. Procrastinator" speech
till around the 14th or 15th as I know most of you were just preparing
those pre-registrations and writing those checks as we speak (Right…)

Very Best Regards,

Your humble host for your 2006 16th Annual FOD Tandem Wing Fly-in,

Re: Inspector and Instructor for Q-2

Phil,

Congratulations on the purchase of your new Q.

If you are picking up Jerry's "Q" in 15 days, what have you done to
get yourself ready to fly this Q taildragger and understand the
planes ideosycracies? If the answer is nothing then the results will
be predictable. This is not a difficult plane to fly but without
systems understanding and a proper check out for yourself and the
plane, it might as well be a 727. If you are a current high time,
complex, multi-engine, instrument rated pilot, I would still say the
same. Just ask Geoff Rutledge or Phil Lankford or Ron Weise or Kevin
Bodiker or David Hyatt or Larry Severson. They can clear up any mis
understandings you may have.

Its good that you are casting about for help. Thats a start! Try to
find someone in your area right away and get up to speed. How far
from Boston are you? Dave Dugas is in Boston and has a sweet flying
Q taildragger, maybe he can offer some input. If you don't feel
comfortable, trailer it! May not be as cool as flying it into your
home airport but it will get there in one piece.

Regards,
Jim Patillo N46JP Q200

Re: Crashed Tri-Q

A hard left roll tendancy is normal for a first
flight and everone here knows it.
Actually, I didn't know it, but it took a simple right aileron input to level the plane.

Once the left elevator is trimed
the issue is resolved.
I did put in a roll trim system based at what I saw at a Livermore gathering. It leveled the wing easily. I left it in for the second flight which saw no roll to the left. I later found out that with one 190 lb pilot the elevator roll system needs about 5/8ths in trim. With 2 bodies, no roll trim needed.

Re: Crashed Tri-Q

Jim Patillo
 

Chris,

I'm sorry to hear about your accident and glad you didn't become
another smoking hole in the ground.

Its kind of interesting you're only a couple of hours away from
Livermore, CA where there's more collective Q knowledge than
anywhere. Yet you never identified yourself or ever showed up at one
of our events. Had you reached out you could have avoided these
stupid mistakes. A hard left roll tendancy is normal for a first
flight and everone here knows it. Once the left elevator is trimed
the issue is resolved. Further how does one accidently lift off?
I've never been able to get my arms around that one! If you and your
plane weren't prepared for flight you should have never left the
ground.

Unfortunately these kinds of accidents continue giving our planes a
bad reputation it does not deserve. Its because of individuals like
you that this airplane is considered "hard to fly and control",
which is rediculous.

I have about 800 hours on my Q200 which is a lot more plane to fly
than a revemaster tricycle gear Q and have never even had it
sideways on the runway. I am not an aviation wizard or an
exceptional pilot but have tried to use comon sense when needed
which usually works.

Jim Patillo N46JP Q200 790 hours.

I'm happy with my RevFlow. I had to tune it in the beginning to get it set right and I have a summer and a winter adjustment to accommodate for the difference in the air temp. I had heard that you had to "file" grooves into the needle to tune the carb for different rpm settings, but I have never had to do that. There are different size needles that I tried but ended up using the one that came with the carb and close to the factory setting for it.

Re: Marc Waddelow wing layup schedule

Paul Buckley
 

OK, I'll search it out, but it will not be 'till Tuesday now.
BTW, the Waddelow schedule for the canard IS for the LS1.
It simply does away with the carbon spar and is not to be used for the taildragger, only the TriQ without the landing loads on the canard, but it is still the LS1 airfoil.

Re: Volts and amps

r.hole <r.hole@...>
 

Think of the SCR as a latching relay. A small current in the gate
causes the "relay" to latch, and in effect, puts a short circuit to
ground. This short circuit causes the fuse to blow which
disconnects the regulator from the battery. By the way, a second
fuse between the SCR and battery is also necessary.

I would not use this circuit for OV protection, would rather see a
relay/contactor to disconnect.

I was talking hypothtically here. No-one in their right
mind would look for a 1000w Zener, and in a crowbar
situation, it aint going to dissapate 1000w for long
anyway...a few ms at most.
What I had in mind, is more like this ( cigarette packet
design): The alternator has no feild so you need to
disconnect the output from the regulator to turn it off. A
60A scr is not a big device, ( TO220 for example, or TO3)
costs little, and because we are talking a one-off situation
here, needs no heatsink. Put the 1watt zener in the gate, to
+12 thru a limiting resistor, pull the gate down to 0v with
another resistor, add a cap to the gate to give it a small
time constant to prevent switch on with noise. I'd also
suggest 17-18v because the knee of a zener is not all that
sharp. If the output rises, the SCR latches and blows the
fuse, protecting the avionics, which is why we have it
there. You could replace the fuse with a latching relay,
and use the relay to turn off the DC bus also, as better
solution. A warning OV light also.
Anyway, I'm not suggesting you build one like this....you
can buy them, and I'm sure there are proven designs out
there.
