25 March 06
Installed six (the front top plugs were installed
last summer) new spark
plugs and torqued to 25 ft lbs. Drained the oil.
Installed new oil filter
and torqued it to 17 ft lbs and safetyed.

26 March 06
Filled the engine with 6 Qts of Aeroshell 100
straight mineral oil 50wt.
Started engine with the help of Wayne to do the
propping. We think (Terry
Crouch and I) that the mag impulse couplers are
either magnetised, or the
oil is so thick that the dogs are not catching on
the stop. Terry was there
for everything but the flight, as he had to get home
before dark.
Preheating seems to do the trick. I will run this
heavy oil ten hours, then
switch to 20/50wt. Hopefully the lighter weight oil
will make the mags
impulse better. Had trouble with not preheating the
engine as the cowl was
off. Wanted to check for oil leaks before recowling.
No leaks. Back in
hanger for recowl and pre flight and preheat. Set
the ailerons to TE up,
3/8 for this test flight. Also made a piece of
nylaflow tube to use as a
stop on the veneer cable at that setting.
Run up at 1700RPM Right mag -50, left mag -100, carb
heat-100.
Take off was normal on runway 17 with a left cross
wind 20 to 30 off
runway heading.
The plane was less pitch sensitive at this reflexor
setting. Also a lot less
back pressure on the stick to rotate and climb.
Engine seemed to have more
power. RPM on TO 2400. OAT 50F Wind 10 to 15 MPH
from 140 to 160. Air was
a bit rough due to thermals. Engine temps normal.
CHT up to 450F in climb,
down to 380F in level flight while in pretty much a
constant turn. Did run
the reflexor TE down a bit to bring the nose down to
level flight.
Flew hands off very well !!! Engine RPM up to 2500
in level flight. Speed
above 150MPH indicated throttled back to maneuvering
speed, again due to the
thermals. Orbited the airport for 20 min at 3000ft.
Descended to pattern
alt. Engine seems to run the smoothest below 2000RPM
during decent. Above
that (2100 to 2250 or so) it has a vibration that is
not excessive, but
uncomfortable. May be just me. Decent to landing was
good with reflexor back
at 3/8 TE UP. Final was at 115 to 120. Short final
was 110 or so. Made a
shallow short final flew above the runway, all at
once the wheels touched
down. Ballooned back into the air, but the second
touch down was much softer
than the first three landings. MUCH more
manageable!!!
Great day. Expanded the envelope a bit. Learned more
about the reflexor.
Got the engine RPMs up. Very successful.

Q-2/Q-200 Canards and a Main Wing for sale....

olderprograms <groups@...>
 

I've been doing a little too much shopping on eBay over the 2 years.

I have a glassed (but unfinished) Q-2 canard in my garage in North
Eastern PA.

I also bought a Main Wing and Q-200 Canard from a Tri-Q (with the QAC
Carbon Fiber spars) that is sitting in AZ ready to ship.

I'm thinking that I should sell these to anyone who wants them. I'm
considering them extra for my needs, so I'll entertain all reasonable
offers. I can answer more questions via e-mail.

I got a freight quote of $500 from AZ to PA. (Just so you know what
we're dealing with on the shipping.) Let me know if anyone is
interested. (Before I put everything back on eBay.)

These could save some lucky person a whole lot of labor, and save me
some storage space!

Cheers,

Jim , as well as spray adhesive ( making sure to mask off areas that you do not want to clean afterwards) clean the area to be attached with Denatured alky then scotchbrite ,then clean again before spraying on adhesive, let dry before applying seal tape and keep your oily fingers off of the sticky side.(wear gloves)

Hope to catch up with you again one of these days! Don't know if I will make it to the Nevada fly in.

All of you still building here is a taste of what is in store.
Allan, Steve J, John L, and Brian B you fellows are close enough I
bet you will be able to taste this Jabiru pie! After a day of XC
skiing, and rollerblading I decide to roll 1PS out for a flight over
our little piece of the Rocky Mountains. Set the bird up for a 120
KTS climb-out and pointed the prop to the SE. Looking down at the
place I had been skiing just an hour before and then out across the
prairies I could not help but to think about those hours spent in
the hanger alone dreaming about days like today while I mindlessly
sanded hours and days of my life away. Pointing the plane to the
west I headed out over some local lakes just minutes away (50 miles)
to see that the ice is just starting to come off. With a turn to
the north the snow capped Big Horn Mountain defined the the
horizon. A Quickie glance to the GPS said 200 MPH. That's why they
call em Quickies aye Jim P.
Now with sundown getting closer back to the Casper airport with 224
mph showing on the GPS for ground speed 9,500 feet and yes sir there
was a bit of a tailwind but whop-e-ki-OOOOOOO what a great little
plane!!!!! Head to the hanger and get it done boys. Squeaked down
to 21 and dang I can't wait to see yours flying too.

In your .pdf print dialog box you should be able to select the paper size
and an option to scale the images to fit the paper. That way you can print

If the Leon drawings

I will glue to templates to some hard masonite and get them

Is there anyone making canopies any more?

I'm not sure of the origin, but in my hangar are several (maybe 3-4 pairs)
pre-cast foam wheel pants for a Q-2/200. I don't know if QAC ever went into
production with these. They have plywood cast into them for supporting the
axle. They appear ready to bond together, then bond to the underside of the
canard, and with a little fine-tuning, glass into place, no shaping.

They are a bit deformed; some work will need to be done in order to mate the
two halves together.

They are taking up space in my already overcrowded hangar, so I need to get
rid of them.

Free for the taking.

The original quickie has the wheel pant attached to the end rather than
under the main stucture of the canard. i think that putting your wheel
pants under the structure is better but you need to take into
consideration the wing span of the canard by adding some inches to the end
of the foam core.

I just hate to start this project and find out later I have to

If the Leon drawings

I will glue to templates to some hard masonite and get them ready.
I
already have
enough blue foam to make the cores.

Is there anyone making canopies any more?

Also, I am 6'3" with a 39" sitting height. Do I need to modify the
cockpit?

Thanks

Glen,

Leon's drawings are of superb quality and incorporate changes and
other
nice
touches gleaned from Q-TALK and the Q-LIST over the years. He has
also
corrected some minor disparities that he discovered in the QAC
drawings
that
have never really been addressed elsewhere, and drawings of parts
that
never
were drawn up in the original plans. Highly recommended!

Welcome to the list. Do you have the rest of the plans (the
textual part)
and the newsletters and SuperQuickie Rotax conversion plans?

Hello,

New to the list. Just finishing my Dragonfly, hope to fly it
soon.

Love the Q1, so bought the plans from Leon McAtee.

I would like to talk to and meet any Q1 builders in south GA or
N FL.

One general question: How good are leon's drawings? Do they
have the latest changes?

Thanks,
