Does anyone know what the rated G loading of the Q2/Q200 (equipped with the LS1 canard) is? What was the published Vne number? Just curious?

Accident of N218E

Doug Humble <hawkidoug@...>
 

It has been brought to my attention of an accident of a Q200 in Denton TX. "N" number N218E built by Ted Eiben in 1987 and owned by Mark Magnino of The Colony, TX. No injuries, but the airplane sustain major damage. Accident happened this past weekend.

Anybody know of this airplane or Mark?

I continue to have trouble with a dragging left brake. The piston requires what I think is excessive force to retract after use. How tight should it be?

Thanks, Earnest.



Welcome back!



Do you think reducing the height of the lip would reduce the effect?
Richard's lip was .75" in the front and tapers down to .50" in the back.
How does that compare with the size you used? Could this be sized to the
larger Cessna engines he referenced and needs scaling down for our
smaller engines and cleaner airframe?



My fuel vent is between the fuel tank and the aft surface of the canard
and it drops about 3-4" below the bottom of the fuselage on the
passenger side. Is that too close?



Thanks,



Dave

Dave,
This technique definitely works. I have used it in the past with good
results. There are 2 problems that you should be aware of though. The
lip
creates a large low pressure area and you don't want a fuel vent
anywhere near it
(measured in feet, not inches - experience). It creates a lot of drag.
Earnest

MartinErni@...
 

Dave,
I had problems with the vent in the same position you describe and had
to move it outside the edge of the fuselage. It is really scary when your
engine will only run in a nose high position. At high speeds the engine wants to
quit.
Earnest


Re: Van Vleet Cowling Mod in Q-Talk 119

MartinErni@...
 

Yes Dave, size matters. :-) I started with about an 1.25 inches and kept
trimming to get the right temps. I don't remember exactly but I think I ended
up with about .75 on the O200. I have a completely different inlet and
outlet now and don't us a lip.
Earnest

The little ridge/lip seems like it would create ripples or otherwise
disturb the air below the cowling.
yes, diverts it downward.



Does that effectively lower the pressure under there or something to aid
in the cooling process?
Creates a low pressure area sucking the cowl air out.


What effect would the half football shape and the tapering lip have on
the air?
see above

Hi Guys,

I'm curious about the modification Richard made to his Turbo Q2 and
just why he is seeing such an improvement. It looks simple enough to
do and with my Tri-Q2, opening up that area would make removing the
lower cowling much easier. I wouldn't mind getting rid of the cowl
flap either.

Is the idea sound enough to be worth hacking up my cowling?

Thanks,

Dave Richardson

Have you received the CD ROM Doug.? I had it done professionally and I think
it is full size. It is high quality and there is noting in there like
airfoils which would warrant absolute accuracy. My PDF covers the method
with photographs and hand sketches by Larry Lombard. We would need to get
the airfoils from another source. If that is a problem I have the original
paper printed airfoils in original condition pasted to alum blanks which are
cut to shape for use as construction templates. Maybe someone else has
something better though what I have is in A1 condition? I have a good
photocopy set from these but would need to get advice how to produce
something better.

Hi guys, I didn't see anything from the Q-list for the last three days. Is this correct, or have I lost the connection?
Also, this week has been busy. Transferred G-CUIK from my drive to the airfield - an old wartime bomber base in Oxfordshire called Enstone. It's plenty big. The journey - only about 35 miles was scary as the "load" was wide; front half with engine, minus spinner, but we made it with only a few near misses - no hits. Taxied on Thursday up to 40 mph or so - engine T&Ps fine on the ground - plenty of pull. A few adjustments to make (one brake is a bit soft - air?, radio doesn't transmit, tail wheel turnbuckles need tightening to remove slack).
Still waiting for paperwork from the PFA - with a bit of luck, it should be here this week. Then some more taxiing and perhaps a first flight next weekend if everything is favourable.....
