The OT-10 is the cam WW specifies in his manual. See page 27.

He also states that the OT-20 would work for engine RPM's
above 3400. Since I'm planning to run at or above 3400 I
initially chose the OT-20. Then I had the opportunity to
have my specifications plugged into a PC dyno, and we saw
that the OT-10 was substantially superior (10 hp) to the
OT-20 cam at 3400-3600 RPM. I returned the 20 and bought a 10.

Re: Small tire source

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 know where you can get those "lamb" Cheng Shin tires for 13.75 each
including tube plus shipping if you can lower yourself to buy stuff from
the EZ guys. (we use the same tires, motors, etc.) I just bought some
and he sent them right out no problem. His addres is Boatfly@...

I developed the design from scratch and it cost approx. $150.00 for design
and 3 color vinyl. Jon did his own installation. Prices will very depending
on how much work is involved in the design phase and how much vinyl is
involved. I did enjoy working on this one!

Mag Box

Pat Panzera <panzera@...>
 

Anyone need a pre-fabricated mag box for the Revmaster?

I'll be cutting mine out of the firewall and it would
be a pity to throw it away. If you could use it,
all I ask is that you reimburse me shipping fees.

Here's some photos showing it:

It's not as rough as it may appear.

I think I picked up a little speed after I installed them too!  I had Doug make them out of extra slippery vinyl.  :-)

Pat,
My edition of WW's manual is copyrighted 1996. I bought it last year from
Corvair Underground (I couldn't reach WW directly no matter how I tried --
and I still can't). Cams are discussed on pg. 23 of my book and OTs aren't
mentioned. I'm wondering now how much OTHER info. I'm missing out on...???

What's the copyright on everyone else's manual out there???

Also Pat, you made mention several days ago of William having a few prop
hubs left for sale. I need to get in touch with him to buy one...any
ideas???

New developments on the prop hub attachment, rethinking on which
heads to use, and a few other tidbits.

There is a 1999 update, and if I remember properly, he sent
out updates to registered owners. Perhaps your registration
got messed up by buying through the Underground?

Also Pat, you made mention several days ago of William having a few prop
hubs left for sale. I need to get in touch with him to buy one...any

You gotta call regularly, and leave a message if you don't get
his voice. Call 904-451-3736 If you get his voice mail, let
him know you need the updates and a prop hub.

Have you joined the CorvAIRCRAFT e-mail list? These types of
questions are best fielded on that list rather than cluttering
up the Q-list. :)

Re: Dynamic Balancing

Bruce Crain
 

Thanks Pat, Larry, John, Chris, and Dennis for commenting on the prop
balancing. Looks like a go for next weekend. Hopefully it will be so
silky smooth when I arrive at Ottawa that I will need to stick my hand
out of the aircraft to see if the engine is running.

Ottawa-----rides and picture taking

Barry Stearns <blstearns@...>
 

Hello all. Hope all is well with everyone of you. I haven't had a chance
to be on much with the avionics installations taking up so much of my time.
I have completed the magneto box on the Q200 and I am still waiting to
order the 5 ply sheet for the firewall construction. I need to get that
ordered so I can get the fuse together. She is sitting in the garage
waiting for the firewall. All the bulkheads are completed and are waiting
also. I am very eager to make it to Ottawa again this year. I am planning
to stay all weekend as to soak in all the Q spirit and wisdom. Wanted to
get to talk to some of you again and get a good look at all your birds and
construction techniques. Also, i wanted to see about getting one of those
cherished Q rides at Ottawa. If someone would be willing to please let me
know. Also, I am planning on flying the company Arrow down this year and
would be interested in doing some picture taking of you guys in the air.
Let me know and I'll be happy to help out in anyway. Thanks again.

Control stops

pwright5@...
 

How do you Q1 drivers ensure that the maximum 30 degrees travel is always met
and not exceeded if you have a reflexor? I'm still having trouble working out
how to put control limits on. I think I'm going to have to make a 60 degree
'sleeve' that is fixed at the FORE end of the aileron torque tube. Got any
better ideas?

Also .... when is the next Chat .... I'd like to join in - as long as it's not
at 03:00!

G-BMVG is well. Have finally finished all the jobs that I started to do two
years ago at permit renewal. After 200 hours I took it offline for a while and:

Replaced constantly leaking fuel tank with an Aluminimum on (inserted from
underneath and re-glassed) plus new fuel lines and filters.
Major engine strip and overhaul (inc new crank due to rust - it rains over
here). Note - different 4-rind jetting needle, and the engine now runs smooth
throughout the complete range of the engine, and used less fuel.
New prop blade.
Completely re-wire the panel (birds-nest of additions over 10 years and 3
previous engines all with different insruments was BAD)
New upholstery - tasty
New paint job (acrylic)
New gas-strut for canopy (now it's "lift and forget" when taxiing in)
New MicroAir radio .... lightest and best I've ever seen. (Tip - go straight
to the factory in OZ, it cost me under £400 .... Email me for address if you
need it). I also put the remote-channel-toggle switch on the throttle lever
so that I could change frequencies without having to loosen my shoulder
straps to reach all the way forward to the panel.
I took all the old control knobs off for fun, and re-turned them all from
light-Oak (Throttle, choke, fuel, dual brakes, stick, reflexor).
Placarded everything (you don't need to put your address on stainless any
more in the UK, just the registration).
Control stops (except for the above).
New Carbon-Fibre brake hubs and MCR-01 differential drum brakes .... no more
"sewing machine" noises while waiting for the machine to 'roll' to a stop.
Can now do full-power run-ups (Rotax 503).
Next week am putting on a 'radical' Red, Yellow and Orange pattern.
Keith Welshes VG's (thanx Keith!) at last.

Goes like a rocket ... and looks SEXY (including Connoly Leather seat cut and
re-sewn out of an old Jaguar).
Now - who wants to come over the England and drive it? (My insurance states
minimum 500 hours - 50 hours on type).

Cheers,

Paul Wright

Re: GPS

HawkiDoug@...
 

IMHO the accuracy improvements only mean something to those making IFR
approaches. I just need to get close enough to see the airport I am trying
to get to. They're more than accurate for VFR.

For flying purposes, I can't tell the difference. It has always been

Re: GPS

Neil France <n.france@...>
 

I used to have great faith in GPS until a couple of weeks ago. My GPS (Magellan 3000XL) fell over twice during a seven hour cross country flight, once when I least needed it. Fortunately I had not been relying on it solely to get me to my destination (somewhere that I had never been before) as I still had the good old magnetic compass heading to go by. I don't know whether it was my GPS or the system that failed but I will be very weary of them both from now on. Improvement? Well, I haven't noticed much.

Re: GPS

Michael D. Callahan <micallahan@...>
 

    At this point I am a flying "none" when it comes to GPS, ain't got none, don't want none, ain't lookin fer none. Maybe when I finish my instrument ticket I'll change my mind, but I only intend to fly VFR in my Q.
    Except in IFR flight (and even then to some extent), navaids (of which GPS is one) are just that, aids. If you are looking at a map and have picked good checkpoints and are following them, you know where you are, even if your GPS can't P its S with the G!  Mike C.
