Small tire source

HawkiDoug@...
 

Hi guys! Does anyone have a source for the "small" tires for the Q2? I'm
wanting to give myself more room if/when I realign my axles. I saw some
tires at Harbor Freight that were 13x5.00-6, 4 ply, 40 psi, made in China
but said "Not for Hiway use". Would these work?? I'm assuming not but
thought I'd ask.

Thanks!

It's people like you that make my day really tough sometimes. I'm up
until the wee hours of the morning working on the Q (or something else that
needs to get done so I can get back to work on the Q) and then the first half
of the next day I spend fighting off urge to sleep. Now if the rest of you
would just quit finishing your planes I wouldn't have to "keep up with the
Jones's." <G>

Sounds good Pat. Get the info off the sidewalls as well. My only concern is
if I do this, will there be a source in the future!

JIm...Congratulations!! I know just how you feel. Now you can enjoy how nice this airplane flies. After just 50 or so hours on my Q2, I can honestly say that it's been worth every minute of work; even if I don't fly it for another minute!! Good luck. Dave Dugas

QUICKIE 200 N46JP FLY'S! FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME!

To Bob Farnum and Barry Webber, fellow EAA Members who I owe a great deal for support, ideas and assistance, THANK YOU!

Today my bird took to the air for the first time. Weather clear, wind calm 4K down the runway, temperature 73 degrees F., dewpoint close.

Checked fuel pump on, (110 LL fuel on board), 5.5 gallons in header - 8 gallons in main. No added weight to passenger seat. 60/68 Warnke Prop.

TAKEOFF!
a.. Aircraft departed runway 25R @ 0700 PST straight down the runway, rotated at 75 MPH, 2300 RPM.
b.. Once off the ground expected and noticed left wing heavy
c.. Engine instruments nominal, oil pressure 60 lbs.& oil temp 200 degrees, 2500 RPM. (new engine)
d.. Trimmed elevator for 120 MPH climbing left turn to downwind
e.. Climb to 3500 ft.
f.. Climb was positive at 800-1000 fpm. Holding right stick but trimable to neutral.
g.. Engine instruments, nominal, except for slight oil temperature increase.
h.. 3500 ft. level off, increase speed to 130 MPH.
Commence series of flight card parameters: Yaw 5 degrees right, and 5 degrees left - Check nominal
Pitch 3 degrees up an 3 degrees down - Check nominal
Bank 10 degrees right and left, bank 15 degrees right and left - Check nominal

Note Oil temp at 235 degrees and oil pressure 30 lbs., cylinder head temperature 325 degrees, exhaust gas temperature 1200 degrees, 2600 RPM, speed 150 MPH, aircraft vibration free!

Advised by chase pilot to slow to 130 MPH for flight card maneuvers.

Note RPM drop, pulled carb heat to clear ice, 2600 RPM and began climb to 5500 ft.@140 MPH

Commence series of flight card parameters: Same as above @130-75 MPH - Check nominal
Deployed speed brake (belly board) at 130 MPH - Check nominal
Trimmed aircraft for level flight
Checked airspeed, vertical speed and altimeter - Check nominal

Note: Oil temperature 240 degrees, oil pressure 40 lbs., CHT 375 degrees, EGT 1100 degrees

Flew straight and level @ 140 MPH for photo shoot and enjoyed the ride!

Power back to 1400 RPM, reduced speed to 130 MPH, deployed speed brake, trimmed aircraft to 95 MPH, descended to 3000 ft. and called tower for entry into top of pattern altitude at 1400 ft.

Note: Oil temperature 220 degrees, oil pressure 40 lbs., CHT 275 degrees, EGT 1000 degrees

LANDING!
a.. Left down wind to 25R, cleared to land 25R, wind 7K @ 270 degrees
b.. Approach to final @ 100 MPH, header tank full, engine and flight instruments - nominal
c.. Configure aircraft for three point landing, hold stick slightly back
d.. Over the numbers at 10' and 95 MPH, slow to 85 MPH hold stick slightly back and flare
e.. Runway contact (no squeak)
Power off, reflexor back, stick forward, brake as required, short straight down the runway roll.

SUMMARY!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank my wife and four children who have tolerated this obsession since 1981.

To all of you who have these dreams and those of you who think you do, today justified every bit of it all the bitching and complaining! Just keep working and with the help of the Quickie and EAA guys you will finish sooner than you think and will have an equally non-eventful flight.

Anyways, I made good progress on the engine mount this weekend.

Small tire source

docrw <docrwq2@...>
 

Hey Doug,
You don't want to use those cheap tires as tempting as it may be. An Asian company bought out "Lamb tires" and that's the best to use for quality. Or if you have carved out the wheelpants yet do so like I did so the bigger 500's can be used.
David
Hi guys!  Does anyone have a source for the "small" tires for the Q2?  I'm
wanting to give myself more room if/when I realign my axles.  I saw some
tires at Harbor Freight that were 13x5.00-6,  4 ply, 40 psi, made in China
but said "Not for Hiway use".  Would these work??  I'm assuming not but
thought I'd ask.

Thanks!

Re: News Release

Royer, Michel <RoyerM@...>
 

Congrat Jim, excellent description and brought memory back.....

I can now say to the group that i use to limit practice in the circuit
to one landing, i mean by this that i use to practice approach but no touch
and just overshoot for the next approach.....I now enjoy doing the
landingssssss
and particularly since the misalignment fix.....but you must keep looking
at the end of the runway...........and can now exit 2500 feet

Re: Small tire source

Mike Dwyer <mdwyer@...>
 

I have over 900 hours on the Chen Shin (China-not for highway use)tires that came with the kit and have had no tire related problems.  Someone a few months back posted a CA phone number for them.  I'll try and find it.

I have a surplus set of small tires and wheels I can sell cheap.
I'll get a photo so you can see if it's what you are after if
you'd like.

Re: Photos

BD5ER@...
 

I have a couple of questions about your turbo set up since I plan to use
a turbo Subaru in my Q.
Have you used a water cooled turbo?
Have you used the stock waste gate set up? And if so, what boost
pressure have you set it at and have you noticed at what altitude the turbo
starts to loose boost?
Is there anything you would change if you had the time to do it a second
time?

The reason I ask is that I am planning on setting mine up to boost to a
constant 16 or 17 PSIA and would like to get some real world feed back before
I actually start the turbo phase of the project.

Hi Doug,
There's a company in CA called Greenball Tire Co, and they have the Cheng
Shin Tires at a reasonable price. I don't have their number right now ,
but will get it later today if you want it.

wanting to give myself more room if/when I realign my axles. I saw
some
tires at Harbor Freight that were 13x5.00-6, 4 ply, 40 psi, made in
China
but said "Not for Hiway use". Would these work?? I'm assuming not
but
thought I'd ask.

Thanks!

A son's excitement

Jon Finley <finley@...>
 

Hi all,

As many of you know, I have three boys (11, 9, & 5 yrs) that help me with my
airplanes. Believe it or not, they really contribute allot - everything
from reaching those nuts and bolts that I can't to great design suggestions
(i.e. Dad, can we make a couple of jet engines to mount on the wing tips??).
They have all worked hard on our Subaru conversion over the last couple
years but have been getting bored with it lately. They haven't been up
flying with me since I started the conversion and this whole idea of
work-work-work with no gratification was getting old. Yesterday it was all
worth it for Chris (my oldest).

We were at the airport working on various stuff. At about 5:30 I told Chris
to jump in the Q2 and we would go get some gas. I hadn't said a word about
taking him flying so he wasn't expecting it. After getting gas, my call to
the tower requesting to taxi to the active perked his ears up a bit! As we
started the take-off roll I heard him speak up, "Dad? Are we going to
fly??" Yup, hang on!!

I had forgotten how much my kids love to fly! There is something about
being up in the air looking down at everything that excites them (come to
think of it - maybe its my flying that excites them:-))! We cruised by some
of the lakes watching the boaters and water skiers and checked out the local
amusement park. We had a great time! All of my flying of late has been very
business oriented (make sure that Soob keeps running!), seeing how excited
Chris was made me realize that I had forgotten how much I enjoyed flying!!
If you get the chance - take a kid flying!

Funniest part of the flight: During the approach for landing about 300' from
touchdown Chris says: "Hey Dad, look at this (picture on the digital camera
that he took)! I had to chuckle - "Uhhmm, right now probably isn't a good
time."

Great Job on your Sonic Jon (cute), and yes we forget how much of a joy it
is
to fly. Not being completly at ease with mine i restricted to take anyone
along for a ride and did it last week, was glad to not really notice any
difference
except for the right roll tendacy as oppose to the left roll tendacy when
i'm alone.
Cheer and restrict beer..........

Michel

Re: Corvair Camshaft

Of late, I've noticed several list members mentioning the OT-10 cam
(Clark's/OTTO) being used in their Corvair engines. Is this the same cam
that William Wynne is recommending in his conversion instructions or do you
guys know?? I just wondered, since WW doesn't actually state any specifics
in the book. Any info. will be appreciated!!!
