Re: Tri-Q Owners : How do your girls perform

Jay Scheevel
 

Mine goes 0 MPH, same as 32 years ago, but the good news is that it doesn't use much fuel. Looking forward to changing both of those numbers soon. Jerry Marstall can confirm, based on his recent visit, that I am not just blowing smoke. I can give a full report when it all comes together.

Good luck on your new engine project, Ryan. Beware of your W&B when you put that heavier engine on the nose. Careful planning will prevent you having to re-do things later.

Cheers,
Jay Scheevel, Tri-Q, still building

Tri-Q Owners : How do your girls perform

ryan goodman
 

Ive asked this question in a less direct way in another post. But wanted to move it to its own per the recently shared rule reminder. Plus I realized that it would be a good way for me to find out who all here has the Tri-Q version and get to know them. 


So Tri-Q owners. How do your aircraft perform for you?

Report

Listers,

As most of you know I had an off runway excursion in May.
After much work and toil, my plane is back in the air. I got it done in time to attend the FOD, but I have not had time enough to type this report.
Thanks to all who helped with this canard repair and other scratches. Most of all to Paul Fisher who twice flew up to DEH and helped me with reconstruction and lay ups.
Flew the first time on Sept 15. Had a rough engine and would not develop full power. Next morning I removed the plugs and cleaned them.
Now had full power. Must have been something grounding out a plug or two. Flew to DVN for the FOD with a side detour to Monticello IA due to weather. Got the all clear for Paul to proceed to DVN for the weekend. Had a great time visiting old friends and making some new ones. Flew back in great weather, and can still use the plane! All in all, a fantastic event. Looking forward to being there again next year.
Thanks to Paul and Tama for being the hosts, along with Terry Crouch as tour guide. Also to Tama for the great personalized T shirt for each pilot that flew their homebuilt to the event.
I have some work to do on the wheel pants, but, it's great to back in the air!

Re: Fast TriQ

Martin Skiby
 

Jim, yes my wife flew a very fast Vari-Eze in several races over the years. She won the Copperstate Dash three years in a row with the last one she ran at 245kts. She also won the sun 100 race that year in the 0320 class. By several minutes! The TriQ200 we have was originally built at a standard Q200 and took third in and Cafe 400 in 83 I believe. It weighed in at 610 lbs when built and still only touched 725 with the Tri gear and repair from being crushed.

My son is now out of the Navy, received his A/P and is following what his Grandfather and I were doing. We could not be more proud.

We absolutely will get up to see you or maybe you can get the guys to fly down to MIT for a run.

The motor is a little pumped yes but not overly done. We just try to clean things up as much as possible.

Hope to see you very soon. Did you see the videos of his speeds on the site? That's what they are.

Martin

Re: prop

Murry Rozansky
 

Hi CC, true for most light planes.  Many WW II fighters have a vmc. Too much throttle at low speed and the engine and prop over power the controls and they crash, It happens too often.  With light planes the additional weight eats into structural margins, and added speed can push flutter boundaries.  Aircraft are finely balanced machines and you can’t fool mother nature.  Most light planes could use more power.

Re: prop

ryan goodman
 

Thats great. I am planning to turn at about 3500 with my direct drive EJ25(N.A.) At my home field altitude ill be making 86HP. I will be turning a 52" prop also. I may get lucky and snag a few more RPM over that but so long as my compression is nice and tight(should be since I am replacing the head gaskets and may do the port polish can valve job) then I assume ill be right around there. 

Dorathea - Is your aircraft also a Tri-Q?

Thanks whoever started a new thread to keep us in line with admin continuity requests.

Ryan-------------- I am running a Subaru 1800 direct drive turbo.
Don't be shy to see some rpm. I cruise at 3500 and see 4000 when showing
off. I am using a 52 inch three blade Warp drive ground adj. Easy to
setup for any rpm you choose. Hope this helps. Canada Chris



Fast TriQ

Jim Patillo
 

Martin was your wife the lady that use to run a Varieze at the Jack Pot, NV race. That was also a fast one as I recall. You and your son should come to LVK for a visit. I would be happy to give him a ride in my Q200. 


Sounds like you have a fast bird. Getting that kind of speed in a TriQ is pretty cool. Is your engine pumped up or what? What kind of HP are you making at 2800 RPM? What do you attribute it to other that your exceptional building skills?😋


Best regards,

Jim Patillo

N46JP Q200


Ps. I'm flying in the LVK airshow tomorrow between 12:30-1:30 pm. Keeping the Quickie flame burning up here!

Re: Q-List Etiquette

Martin Skiby
 

Thank you for the reminder Sam, I was answering some questions on speed and prop configurations for the thread. Sorry it got off base.

I look forward to meeting you in person some time. You have done quite a bit for the group and my son is wildly excited about the Q200 because of your work.
