Q220?

Dave Covert <davecove@...>
 

I had the opportunity to sit in a Q200 a couple of weeks ago, and while I love the aircraft, the cockpit lip bit into my left deltoid and I had to hold my head at a 45 degree angle to get the canopy down. 

At 6'3" I am about 1.10 times the size of the average male in height and shoulder width and so I have to wonder what would be the aerodynamic results of building a Q200 with all dimensions multiplied by 1.10  (thus the Q220, get it?)  Assume a 110hp-120hp motor.

My impression of the overbuilt physical strength of the Q200 leaves me with little doubt about the layup schedule being able to handle the weight of the additional material.

Any thoughts/opinions/observations?

Pretty picture.  At first I was taken by the strange nose wheel.  Then I realized it was going backward!

Bruce, carbon fiber is much high modulus than glass fiber so it will not flex the same as it will be stiffer.

The source that Dave Dugas provided would be more suitable as it is a solid pultruded glass rod.

Bruce, Dave and Sam,
Thanks for the ideas on tailspring options, I will check those out.  Sorry but I am having trouble sending some replies on this list.  If you want to see the web page of the carbon uni solid rod it is at  Goodwinds.com: Home page

Completed prop inspection today on N46JP for possible cracks in bore/shaft hole of prop. NONE FOUND. Safe for flight.

My last email discussed Mark Summers (South Lake Tahoe) finding two small cracks running fore and aft in the bore on both sides of his 60/72 Catto with about 500 hours on it. You may want to check yours.

My Details:

60/72 Catto 2-blade prop w/leading edge protection.
1000 hrs. + on the prop

Hangared at Livermore, CA

Re: Doubt

Sergio, have you considered an Ercoupe or one of its variants? Its an older 2-seater, but may be good for you because:
1) No rudder pedals (the yoke controls both rudders and ailerons); modifying it for your use should be very simple (adding a brake lever).
2) they are not expensive
3) Unlike the single-seat Quickie, the cockpit may be large enough to bring a folding wheelchair. 
4) It is stall-resistant and reported to be very easy to fly.
 Good luck!

Sergio,
As a former Quickie owner, I would not recommend one for a wheelchair user.  Ingress and egress would be very difficult as it is a small cockpit.  Modifying the control system for paraplegic use would also be difficult.  Basically, it’s just too small to work for what you are planning.  I would suggest a larger plane such as some type of open frame light sport type or maybe a Breezy.  You would have much better access to the cockpit and more room to install adapted controls.  The Quickie is attractive due to its performance and cool looks but it’s kind of a specialized airplane.

I like the stretch wrap.  Did you know you have a big hole in your upper fuselage where the header tank should go?

Hi All,

A bit of a progress report: I loaded my Tri-Q on a trailer last night and took it to the airport. I have finished glassing all of the firewall and radiator plenums, and I have finally glued the forward fuselage pieces together. Now it was time to get it out to the airport so my good friend, 86-year old AP/AI and antique plane builder buddy can skillfully construct the firewall metalwork. Some of you with the same sense of humor as me, may enjoy my decoration of the trailer. When driving, the winds always favor runway 25. All photos are in a new folder in the photos section of the Q-list.

Cheers,
Jay  Scheevel, Tri-Q still building

Good advice. I bet it will still run smooth when you put it back on. Hope you are doing well. Head east in September!

This is a potential safety issue!

Mark Summers is parting out his Q200 (built a Lancair Legacy) and found a crack running front to back on both sides of the bore hole in his Catto Prop. Mark's prop is the one prior to Craig's latest version and the one I run. You might want to remove it and take a look before further flight. His prop had 500 hours on it. 

Mine has been running so smooth I hate to pull it off but will this week!

I have a brand new Catto prop. Has Mark talked to Craig about it yet?
