Hi Kevin,

 

I think that I will try to make it. On planning a route, I see that Broken Bow is pretty much on the way for me. I wonder if Lynn is planning on coming? If so, maybe we could fly together. If Bruce wants to fly a little out of his way, maybe he could meet us both there and we could fly in as a Tri-ship of Tri-Q’s

Listers,

Bruce keeps gently prodding me, see his closing remark, to pick a date for the delayed Fling.

I am open.

 

Thoughts:

               

                July 17,18, 19 would have been the WE before what would have been OSH.

                July 17 - 21 with emphasis on the weekend, but stay as long as you can stand it.

 

I picked that time, as it would be the same time, as most planning to attend OSH would have time off. The next WE would be a rush to get home and back to work. 

 

Remember work all you old retired BAST..DS?

 

So, Bruskiskavitch there you have it. Hope the attendance will be great! 

 

It can’t rain for five days can it?

 

Plenty of motels in Decorah.

Re: Short Flight Report

Mike Dwyer
 

Hi Jim, great report.  About your regulator... it is working properly and replacing it wont change anything.  The regulator tries to get the voltage to say 14 volts.  If the battery is less than 10v then the regulator will command full oytput current until the voltage comes up.  Best bet if you leave the ign on again is to just idle until the voltage gets to 12 or 13v, or get an amp meter...  fly safe, Mike Dwyer N3QP

Well I flew this morning to test the recharged batteries and new 60A alternator breaker. Engine fired up first blade. Did a run up with engine and electronics  functioning properly. Flew about 25 minutes and returned to the airport without  issues.

In summary, I think the reason the breaker tripped was the in rush of current from the alternator to batteries that were near empty, thus preventing in flight charging. I still don’t understand why the voltage regulator didn’t prevent the breaker trip. I may switch to an electronic voltage regulator. 

As a side note, I mentioned that I run dual Plasma 3 Lightspeed ignitions. I did this for a few reasons;

1. I didn’t like the idea of having to pull the engine to inspect mags or check timing. 
2. My plane idles at 450 rpm’s which helps a lot on rollout distance. 
3. More fuel efficient and produces more power at altitude .
4. Smoother running engine.

On start up I crank my 0200 with a Concord  25RG. If that battery is low I immediately know and fix the problem. (A 25A battery can run a facet fuel pump,
two electronic ignitions and a radio for a while).
 
If not I turn on the second 7 amp battery and verify amber low voltage light on the panel is lit and after increasing rpm to 1000,  shuts off low voltage light. Next I verify each volt/amp meter is showing positive charging to its battery. 7A battery powers both ignitions as backup.  

For reference; I installed both ignitions at 200 hours. They have been very robust and with 1600 hours on them, are still working flawlessly. I might add the coils were installed on top of the engine for lack of room (a high heat soak area). They have been very robust as well.  Klaus told me they wouldn’t live there but about 200 hours ago I figured it would be prudent to replace all four and did. 

I really like my dual Plasma 3’s except when I create my own FUBAR,s like the one just shared with you. Mike N. gave me the suggestion of leaving the strobe switch on after shut down, great idea. I am doing that now. I don’t know anyone that will walk away from strobes hitting them in the eyeballs.

Re: Short Flight Report

Jay Scheevel
 

Hi Jim,

Thanks for the detailed update on your outcome. A lot of people, including me, run enough electrical items these days, so it is a critical item now, and it is good to know the gotchas.

As far as your voltage regulator goes, I would not be too hasty to condemn the one you have. I have two batteries (Earth X 12Ah). When I spool up for take off, my voltage never goes over 14.4V but my alternator is pumping as much as 38 amps back into the batteries. I have a 40 amp alternator. If your batteries were fully discharged, and you have a 60 amp alternator, you could go over 60 amps without voltage exceeding the limit. Just a thought.

Cheers,
Jay

Re: Short Flight Report

Paul Fisher
 

Jim,
I'm glad you got it working.  I don't think you have a problem with your voltage regulator.  It regulates voltage.  Circuit breakers trip on high amps (not volts).  Putting 60 amps into a mostly dead battery is really hard on the battery.  You were much better off slowly charging it.

Leaving the strobes on should help.  I had the same "issue", so I built a little circuit that beeps (auditory in addition to visual) 30 seconds after the bus drops below 13 volts.  Basically 30 seconds after the engine shuts down.  That gives me enough time to shut things down, but if I forget it reminds me.  I'll probably never leave the master on again, but I'm glad to have something that will nag me if I do!!

Sorry I couldn’t’t catch the Zoom meet but I did jump on YouTube!  Had a funeral for an “old friend” (who was actually younger than me). 

Great job Sammy!  Your perseverance is unmatched as well as your speed in rebuilding and airspeed!  

Hope to see you in July!

Corvair Engine Mount Specs

 

I am looking for measurements and drawings for construction of an engine mount for a corvair engine on the Q-200.  I know several have been constructed and would appreciate the contact information for those members if they are part of this group.
