That is a great video Jon!! Haven't seen it for a few years. The great "Captain Nitro" wasn't it? None other than Chris Barber. What is he up to now?

1992 Barber Quickie Video

Jon Finley <jon@...>
 

Hi all,

Since Chris spoke up on the list earlier today I thought it was
about time to get his famous (or was it infamous) flight from Ottawa
1992 on the web. So, check out the Q2-Q200 Video page on my site
(http://www.finleyweb.net/default.asp?id=180). I have a small
teaser of the flight (500K) and the whole thing (about 8Mb) in WMV
format.

I think everyone there that day were absolutely spell bound by the
display. It still brings a smile to my face and a yearning to get
back into my Q1!!

Enjoy!

Chris:
What are you thinking of for a prop? Have you worked out need
diameter and likely pitch?

Rotax in a Q-1? Just curious... I am still in work on putting my
670 into the little Q. Might get the pipe from R&D as they have a
670 on a dyno. This is about 105HP with very conservative tuning.

It is too cold in Alabama to do glass work lately. Needed to
finalize the sorta RV style gearlegs which are needed for the 3 blade
68" prop.

I've got a Rotax 532 intended to pull my Q1. No, haven't flown
either the plane or the plane with the engine yet. Please keep me
informed (too cold in IL for glasswork, too)

Hi Chris,

Good to see you are still around!

AFAIK, you are the only one to have flown with a WC 2-stroke.

While your at it, you should add a turbo/super charger and give
Bohanan
a run for his money on the altitude records!! :-)

Perfect day in Wyoming

Paul Spackman
 

Started out the day Cross country skiing in the morning 30 degrees, calm and sunshine. Nothing like a couple of hour of exercise to start the day out right. This afternoon (upper 40's and calm) took a local pilot/E-Racer builder for a flight in the Jabiru powered Q-2 so he could see what 200 mph looked like. He said he was glad that he had the E-Racer about ready to fly before he got to fly the Quickie or he might have to change his mind and build a Q-200. But heck we can understand that. Bet he really likes the E when he flies it for the first time next month.

Weather sounds a little rough in ol' Dixie wish you could be here tomorrow, more skiing and more flying. I know, I know you will have plenty of chances to jab me back. Three more months of winter waiting to cruelly slap us back into reality here in the Rockies.

Paul Spackman
For now enjoying the Teaser Spring

In past discussions didn't someone mention something about the Ivo had

props fail. Thanks Darrell
Yes, but for me that wasn't the final coffin nail. Most of the failures I
researched were pilot/installer error. The most notorious was a Cozy I
believe,
where while on a x-country, there was a need to land for some preventive
repair
of the prop.... memory is not all there right now, but I believe it might
have
been a failure of the in-flight adjustable system. In any event, he had to
remove and reinstall the prop, which he did with borrowed tools.

The prop install regime calls for several re-torques after the initial
installation, one or more are to be done moments after starting the
engine, and
certainly before flight. The prop was NOT re-torqued even once, and the
prop
came apart in flight.

There were other failures I read about, and again, all which I can
specifically
recall were due 100% to pilot error, BUT!!! This is another reason that I
opted
against the prop, why use something that's this critical? A dumb piece of
wood
is WAY less prone to failing by my hand than the finicky IVO. But in the
right
hands, with the proper care, I've seen the prop last hundreds of trouble
free
hours.
