Thanks for your input. I will try heating the flox and pushing the right static port in a bit. Failing that I will replace both and install a new set.
The joys of restoring an aircraft :)

Need L/D info for Quickie (Q1)

Also, what is max RPM on the Onan per POH?  If memory serves it's probably about 2400 RPM but if you could check the POH for me that would be great.

Hi all,

I'm at AirVenture and need to get my hands on an L/D graph for a typical Quickie airplane. I don't recall this info being in the POH but I did not bring mine along so cannot check. If this design info is not in POH does anyone know if QAC ever made such info available in some way? Also, what was the typical prop size on the original 18 hp Onan, and also on some of the typical 2-cycle engines of higher HP that some of our builders installed? Any info you could easily provide me ASAP would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Dave Peterson

Hi Everyone
Here comes an early reminder, and some information, regarding the 24th annual Field of Dreams Fly-In, which will be held on the 26th - the 28th of September 2014 at Orange Municipal Airport (KORE). I would like to start by thanking everyone who attended last year despite the weather. Later in the month should be better in the weather department, and definitely in the foliage department. We have the use of the EAA building again, and there will be steamers and lobster on the Saturday evening menu. A Saturday trip to Yankee Candle (The "scenter" of America) will take place, hosted by Dianna Dugas.
I have scouted a different motel, smaller than the Executive Inn, but renovated and clean. It's located 1/4 mile away from the Executive Inn and closer to Herrick's Tavern, where we will meet Friday evening for some food, beverage, and beverage. The new place is the Travel Inn (978)-544-2986, and I was quoted $55 / night, queen size bed....$65 / night, 2 beds. I think this is a lower price than the rooms last year, and there were a couple of issues last year regarding the cancellation policy. The owners of the Travel Inn are a lot friendlier, and I will send a couple of links to both places so you can decide.
Camping at the airport next to the EAA building / bathroom, which will remain open for the entire event, is free.

I have information from a reliable source that Sam Hoskins will fly his Q200 to this years FOD fly-in, and Sandy will also attend (possibly arriving via alternate transportation). My Q2 will also be there, this year with an engine. I hope everything works out so that everyone flying a tandem wing aircraft can make it this year. Please forward this info to the Dragonfly group....I hope a few of the DFlys attend.
As I think of other info I will send it out, and if you are planning to come to New England for this, let me know. I am breaking in my engine, and now have about 8 hours on it. I am attaching a short clip of a test flight, taken by Dan Hickey about 2 weeks ago.

I'm looking forward to hosting this years FOD Fly-In.  Thank you.

I have found that the static port on the right side of the aft fuselage is kicked off about 1/16 out from the rear side of the port to the fuselage. I know that this is not a good thing and I will replace it. as I need to replace the bent aluminum tube that is the pitot head I was thinking about cutting my losses and replacing them with a single dual pitot static head from aircraft spruce (PN 15144).

My question is ''What do you guys use and do you think that it is advisable to use a dual tube or stay with the remote static ports''.

From the Clean Your Drawers department

Sam Hoskins
 

One of the notes about the race.

There was a scary incident with the Cassutt when he lost his canopy in flight. This was after the race, having taken off from Wausau to Osh. 

Creighton King told us he went inverted at 500' AGL, wind blowing into his eyes, and he could hear his instructor saying FLY THE PLANE. He did an AMAZING job! He saw an airport and landed it safely. He was hit just above the left eye and had a few stitches but he is ok. 

He said while trying to right the plane he also had to restart the engine. I wish he was on this thread so you could get it straight from him. Hopefully he posts it somewhere. 

He landed at Central Wisconsin, which is towered, and at first he said they started to yell at him but  he said he could not radio on first because his headset and everything were attached to the canopy. Turns out, part of it was still attached but trailing in the wind, tearing up his airplane as it whipped around. 


Quickie wins class in AirVenture Cup race

Sam Hoskins
 

Congratulations to Reg Clarke, who took first in the Sprint-turbocharger class in Sunday's AirVenture Cup race, with a fantastic 218.98 mph!

Another former Quickie personality, Norm Howell took first place in the Twin-turbocharger class in an Aerostar.  Norm ran 285.99 mph.

BTW the fastest aircraft was a Lancair IV, Paul Tackabury, at 346.24 MPH.  The slowest was Sam Weigel in his Piper Cub with 78.19 mph.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get my buggy back in the air yet, and was unable to make the race, so I'll be skipping Oshkosh this year.

I truly thank you for all your encouragement and support.  The work continues.

Sam
