  Not sure but I might have a money tree on the way..this time it is nearer to the homestead. Oklahoma City..not Seattle. 

 If that one happens then an AV30 is definitely on the way and I will opt for the tail beacon they offer so ADS-B compliant 
and it will WiFi to any bluetooth I-pad.  

 I was also considering a wide angle camera on the aft turtledeck for aircraft separation as part of the scan, to view on 
the I-pad. I got the idea from automotive backup camera's that are now standard. 
 
  As is known..not much view to clear traffic in a right turn in a Q2 or Dragonfly. A bit like "omni vision" in the Cessnas'. I always 
thought it was kinda cute the mid 60's 150's have a rear view mirror on the panel.

Good ideas, Vern. I think all of the movie recording options on phones, now include the GPS, so I suspect the ipad, iphone and android platforms will all work for what you describe. I will try a video on my phone and see if it encodes the telemetry. Will let you know.

Thanks Corbin,

 

I don’t have the Garmin camera, but I am sure it is very nicely buttoned up like all of the other Garmin gear. I got a deal on the GoPro, so I took that plunge. Seems like most of the GoPro users are on a skateboard, bike or some sort of surf board.  I am too old for those, but I did pick through the noise and found something that works for my flying predilection. I think the Telemetry app that I bought works with a lot of other brands of cameras as long as they encode GPS telemetry data.

Jay

Hi Jon,

 

Thanks for the feedback. You have much more experience with this stuff than I do, so I always appreciate you chiming in. I did try GoProQuik initially (and use it on my phone to control the camera). I found and liked the idea of the gauge widget that it has in the software. I just could not find a way to export from that application to my computer disk. It seems to only allow you to export to YouTube or Facebook. They act like no respectable human would save to any other repository, but what do you expect for free?.

 

In any case, not to be fenced in, and having my trusty money tree blooming year round in my greenhouse, I dove right in and bought the other app. It is very nice and has many other options besides the “aviation” set, so if you mount a GoPro on your quarter horse, it has the usual cowpoke six pack resting on the saddle horn, etc., etc.

 

Cheers,

Jay

 Hey Jon.. when you get the tree to bloom Ben Franklins let me know!! Every time my wife has me go with her to the
garden centers I look for them money trees...I even ASK for them!!   

 On a more aircrafty question..does your RV4 engine mount have the RV7 gear gussets added? Just curious to learn if 
you discovered cracking in the tubes or weld interface to the main gear tube.  Not all gears have but it is I believe a 
point of concern during conditional inspection.

 The fellow that does the recommended repair is located in Vancouver Washington.

Re: Hoop Gear Suggestions

Frankenbird Vern
 

 That would work also. But as you noted, not much real estate to work with at the fuselage and canard junction. Lots of 
challenge. Still, it is a possible venue. Steve..using the Grove gear, how did the ramp angle work out and the gear stagger 
to bring the C/L of the tires to the MKII location from the Datum?  You see why I chose the RV7 gear design? 
Not only for reasons of working out a lot of installation issues , but the design has been flying the Experimental aircraft sky 
ever since the W8/W10 plans were sent by Mr. Wittman. I am skilled enough in TIG welding this is not a big event to fabricate.

Re: Hoop Gear Suggestions, Spring Steel design.

Frankenbird Vern
 

 On the Dragonfly list there are members asking about the spring steel MKII design. I have a copy of the 
sketch and it includes the materials used but I suspect it may be in the archives hereon Q-list. My printed 
copy is not in the best condition but I can scan and upload if there is no file available. 

  The builders longer term than I am probably have some history on this main gear design. I seem to remember
there were more than one or two aircraft that were revised to this design and the reports were it was quite a 
successful change. Same issues about the glass de lams in the MKII original stubs. Since my project had the
similar overall questions about the gear I collected as much data as I could for options.  

 My canard has the glass stubs because I purchased it that way, but I am not going to use the spring steel, hoop, 
or enhanced glass MKII gear. I am going with the RV7 (Wittman W10) main gear design. I already have new legs,brakes,
wheels..and wheel pants.   

 The engine mount design is already available since William Wynne built the mount for an Ed Luce Buttercup project he 
was building. I have the plans for that aircraft also. Of course William intended to use the Corvair powerplant on the 
Buttercup..as I am on Frankenbird.

Testing a few layups to see how size increases with time was my thought, I was just trying to avoid multiple shipments from AS&S.

Michael,

You are correct, DBFN 43 is the one that I am using for reference.  It gives great information for the finished dimensions but doesn't say anything about the amount of fiberglass required.  It also says S-Glass but that was corrected in later issues to E-Glass.  Using E-Glass thickness of 0.012" the 5/8" thick section would take 52 layers assuming that the glass doesn't swell and another 52 layers for the 1 1/4" thick sections.  I think that West Systems is the popular contemporary choice for resin but I am not sure.

For what it is worth, the Long-Ez landing gear is made of unidirectional S-glass, from various vendors.  The builder then has to wrap the gear with several layers of "BID" fiberglass/epoxy at a 45 degree angle.   After the gear is mounted, then additional plies may be needed where the wheel axle mount to provide correct alignment for "toe-in", etc.

As for the final thickness, I would do some test layups to determine the number of layers of glass for the final dimension.   You might want to read up on "post-curing" the epoxy/glass part too.

Hope this helps.

I know it is slightly off topic but I feel like the knowledge base here is also quite deep so I hope it is okay to ask.  I have been trying to have a production run of hoop gear made for the Dragonfly list but have failed.  I believe that I will have to make my own.  This leaves me with a few questions:
1. Are there any design improvements that should be included?  I am thinking of adding 2 fiberglass sleeves for the final layers to help prevent cracking.

2.  In estimating material to get to 0.75" thick, do I just use the fiberglass thickness or do I add something to allow for wetted thickness?

3. Which resin is preferred for a hoop gear application?
