Well the Sun N Fun airshow is going on this week. I hope to fly my Q200 in
on Saturday morning again this year. Hope to make "The Quickie builders
forum" hosted by Jerry Marstall in tent 9 at 11 am. Unfortunately the
weather so far has been dismal, solid IFR through the SE US. Tonight the
National Weather service put out a nasty warning to 8PM. Tornadoes, hail to
2 inches in diameter, thunderstorms, wind gusts to 80 mph and dangerous
lightning are possible. Oh oh. Glad my plane is safe in a hangar. Pray
that the NWS is wrong. Fly Safe, Mike Q200 N3QP

Tandem Wing Fly-In Video

Sam Hoskins
 

All,

I recently received Alan's 2010 Filed of Dreams video and it was a very fun
watch. Really, it was a nice summary of the event and a nice review of the
goings on.

We were mildly astounded at the professionalism of Alan's creation, right
down to the DVD jacket and the opening graphics. We only have two
suggestions; Sandy wants to see some video of Alan capturing the event and I
have a suggestion for naming the production company. Having Alan around,
with the camera glued to his eye, has become a bit of a given, yet he was
missing in the video. Let's see more Alan. My suggestion is to rename the
company. I would suggest changing ir from Alan Thayer Productions, to
Green Shorts Productions.

Thanks for putting it together, Alan. Great job.

Sam & Sandy


Re: Magneto (Ignition) Options for my 2100D

Brad Boyd <them_beans@...>
 

Dave,
Thanks for your response. My mag hasn't been used in probably 2 years, but sat for up to 20 years before that. I have never gotten a spark out of it since I bought my project (Nov '10) so I finally pulled the motor and removed the mag for inspection.
I called Joe Horvath at Revmaster yesterday and he convinced me to just dive in and get it repaired. There is hardly any wear on it (15 hrs on the logs, started in 1983-84), so I plan to send it to Quality Aircraft in Tulsa to look at it (don't think it would need overhauling). It's the D4RN-3000 Dual Mag like I'm sure many Q2ers have.
I have the info to install auto plugs and wires you provided, so I plan on completing that mod when I get my mag back..thanks.
The cooling issue has come up several times, so I will have to include some ducting under my hood as well.
Another shop I spoke with suggested removing the impulse coupling and installing a shower of sparks vibrator instead. I don't understand enough about this unit to know what that's about, but I am motivated to get this bird running again soon.
Thanks again,
Brad

Hi Brad
Does your mag need rebuilding? After sitting for 17 years, during my Q2 construction, the points oxidized and weren't delivering any spark. I filed them and flew for over 250 hours.
I have a 1" duct hose that blows into the magneto box. I switched to auto plugs and installed automotive resistor wires about 300 hours ago...and changed points and condensors. The gears looked new so I lubed, timed the mags, and reassembled. Never had any problems.
Does your magneto have a lot of hours?

Q-list,
I spoke with Joe Horvath at Revmaster this afternoon and he reigned me back into his philosophy..keep it simple stupid! He does not offer the CDI electronic ignition system for older Revmaster engines, only the new ones (too much to change over and too expensive).
He convinced me that the bad press the D-3000 dual mag has received over the years is from production aircraft engines and that he recommended that I stick with my D4RN-3000...just get it overhauled and save some money for other upgrades.
I have spoken to Aircraft Magneto Service in Washington State and they seem to be locked on with respect to magneto rebuilds. Does anyone else on the list have a mag rebuild source they can recommend for comparison?
As always, thanks for your input.

Some of you have the single 4316 Slick Mag along with an electronic ignition on the other...what CDI systems are you using? I saw that Great Plains has an Electronic Oil Pump Secondary Ignition System ($550) and it looks pretty sharp..but will it work on a Revmaster and is anyone using it here?

Martin,
I am a Quickie 2 owner, but saw a similar V-twin Briggs and Stratton Vanguard
(22hp) mounted on a SD-1 Minisport not long ago, so maybe the mounts are
similar?

http://www.sdplanes.com/sd1buildersa.htm

Another builder appears to have mounted a V-twin motor on angled aluminum. The
pictures are about half way down his page of photos:

If you do end up using the Bendix build a cooling shroud over it and duct cooling air to it. And A and P friend of mine said the weak link in the Bendix 3000 is the fact that there is something in it that doesn't stand up to heat very well and it will let you down. Bruce
