Bruce,

I flew out of Deer Valley when I was in college back it 1996. It was,
then, a very safe place as far as Avionics go. At that time, I didn't hear
of any theft problems. A friend was recently down in Feb. and had no
problems. He stopped at Westwind Aviation (I took training there and
rented their aircraft quite often) and though I don't recall the price
amount, he said it was pretty fair. Just watch those parallel runways.
Some of those pilots on the field like to climb over into the other runways
flight path on climb out. Hope this helps a little.

Hey Guys,
"Honey Lamb" and I are flying to Phoenix in Oct. We will land at Deer
Valley. There are a couple of choices for parking and fuel as far as my
Flight Guide shows. Does anyone know which is the best deal and are the
Q and avionics going to be safe? Matt Guensch (sp.) didn't I see your Q
in the
parking area at Deer Valley? Is there availability in a hanger for a few
days?

Bruce,

Matt's a DF guy on the other list. His email is N329DF@....
His DF is still hangared at Deer Valley. But he works over at Glendale
Airport now. Email him direct for hangar space.

Deer Valley is pretty secure airport, so your equip is ok overnight, a
pretty good midsize airport.

Thanks Barry for the info. Thanks Dave for the invite to Ryan field. I
probably won't be at Copperstate (unless I can sneak out). Our foster
daughter and her husband live near Deer Valley so for convenience will
stay there. They are pregnant so we want to go look at her pouchie
tummie. Thanks Don I will E-mail Matt and see what he has on insider
information.
Bruce Crain

P.S. Dave, if you're coming to Ottawa could you bring arrival procedures
for Copperstate? My computer doesn't do attachments. Are you going to
Copperstate?

Oil Cooler Adapter Drawing

The Ives Hive <iveshive@...>
 

Attached is a drawing for an oil cooler adapter to use between an 0-200 and an El Reno oil filter assembly.This drawing along with either an El Reno or Continental gasket (for sizing) should suffice for fabrication.
I remember the subject of cooling was discussed in depth (I think late fall or winter of last year). Issues including coolers ,shrouds, cowl flaps, air flow, and air inlet sizing were addressed. A look into the archives might prove beneficial to find overheating cures.

Re: New GU canard wax?, Q2 status

James Postma <james@...>
 

Ed,

An early factory newsletter recommended Rain-X on the canard as a rain fix.
I am going to test with wet wing on take off. This will be an unstick test
same as required for airplane certification; e.g. ground roll with full
back stick and note speed at canard liftoff. Test with:
dry as is
water as is
Rain-X dry
Rain-X wet

If it works as expected one should see a big difference from dry as is and
water as is; no difference between dry as is and Rain-X dry; and perhaps a
small difference between dry as is and Rain-X wet.

I would definitely do the unstick test on your leading edge tape before
flight.

Subject: [Q-LIST] New GU canard wax?, Q2 status



Hi gang,

Just a thought:
There was a brief infomercial on a new kind of car wax. Instead of
water beading up on the surface, like regular wax, the water spreads
out. The water film gets thinner and thinner until the surface becomes
essentially dry. Has anyone seen this commercial? It sounds like a
possible GU rain fix. I sure would like to take a razor blade to those
vortex generators.

Q2 Status:
My Q2 (Revmaster) is almost ready for flight #2.
I relocated the roll trim so that it can be readily adjusted in flight.
The engine is running great at all speeds. The carb is tuned for
exactly 100deg F EGT drop from full rich to max EGT.

I am not sure this is a problem, but I am only getting 2900 rpm on fast
taxis. Ground acceleration seems like it could be better. The prop is
a 54-48, Arrow Prop. The airfoil thickness on the prop seems thick for
the horsepower. It also has plastic tape over the leading edge for rain
tolerance, the tape is fairly thick (>.005") and not faired into the
wood.

Any thoughts on the above are appreciated.

Big Thanks,

Ed

Re: Ottawa Rides.......Spars again......

Alan Thayer <alanq1@...>
 

Hi, Barry and All!

Have been lurking here lately, and saw the interest in the carbon spar that has been expressed. As you know, the work that we have been doing out here in California has centered mostly around developping a very easy to build and extremely rugged spar out of carbon fiber rods for the Quickie single-place. However, the design is certainly applicable to the Q-200 as well, and all that is needed is one more exercise of number-crunching to get the proper rod-pack schedule, which the designer does indeed plan on doing eventually. It turns out that i will be in France for several weeks shortly, and i do plan on stopping in at Cap Aviation in Dijon, where Chris works, to check out all the interesting stuf going on there, and to bring back finalized plots and instructions for the Q-1 in time for Ottawa. Hopefully, i can get him to do the number-crunching for the Q-200 as well. The carbon necessary for this project is going to cost a fraction of the cost of the original tubes.

In case you missed it, the drop load tests on my prototype canard went without a hitch, and the canard survived just fine, although, i think the whole process must have aged me by at at least 10 years!

Alan

Hello all. Just wanted to get in touch with some of you for the

Would really appreciate the opportunity to fly in one of your aircraft.
Please let me know if this would be possible. I am planning on being
down
Early Saturday and be there for the duration of the flyin.

Also, as most already know i am still in need of a set of spars. I knew
that someone had told me they had access to a set, but the name escapes

the end of February (2nd Annual). More on the website when it is
available.
Glad to have you.

[OT]:Streuth mate, tie those kangaroos down will ya ?

Jim Ham <jimham@...>
 

I got this post from another list, but it seems topical ;-)

Regards,
Jim Ham



The re-use of object-oriented computer code has caused tactical
headaches for Australia's armed forces. As virtual reality simulators
assume larger roles in helicopter combat training, programmers have
gone to great lengths to increase the realism of their scenarios,
including detailed landscapes, and in the case of the Northern
Territory's Operation Phoenix - herds of kangaroos (since disturbed
animals might give away a helicopter's position).

The head of the Defence Science & Technology Organisation's Land
Operations (Simulation Division) reportedly instructed developers
to model the local marsupials' movements and reactions to helicopters.
Being efficient programmers, they appropriated some code originally
used to model infantry detachment reactions under the same
circumstances, changed a mapped icon from a soldier to a kangaroo,
and increased the figures' speed of movement.

Eager to demonstrate their flying skills for some visiting American
pilots, the hotshot Aussies buzzed the virtual kangaroos in low
flight during a simulation. The kangaroos scattered, as predicted,
and the visiting Americans nodded appreciatively ... then did a
double-take as the kangaroos reappeared from behind a hill and
launched a barrage of Stinger missiles at the hapless helicopter.
Apparently the programmers had forgotten to remove that part of the
infantry coding ! The Yanks left with a new-found respect for
Australian wildlife. As to what wombats, wallabies and platypuses
carry in their pouches, that shall remain a secret in the interest
of national security.

Brake Lines

Patrick Panzera <panzera@...>
 

My Q (incomplete project) was built back in the stone age, and has been
exposed to too many UV rays. Subsequently, one of my brake lines (in
the cockpit) is quite brittle. So brittle in fact that it takes little
effort to snap it anywhere I please.

I was wondering if anyone has worked out an easy means to route new
lines from the cockpit to the wheel pant?

For those of you who are building, I would strongly advise running an
oversized line which to use as a conduit, so you can change your lines
at will.

Thanks!

Pat

I've pretty much completed the interior, shot a coat of blue/grey
Zolatone inside.... looks real clean, especially with the factory
(blue) upholstery kit. Now to make the panel.


Re: Brake Lines

Jon Finley <finley@...>
 

Pat,

I installed hydraulic brakes on my Q1 after it was finished. I removed the
elevators and carefully slit the slot core with a knife. Using a dremel, I
cut a small channel in the foam. I placed my brake line into the channel
and glassed the slot core closed. I had to drill a channel into the
fuselage and into the wheelpant while all was open.

I agree, install a brake line conduit if your at that stage.

Airplanes are Better

John Loram <johnl@...>
 

My grown up daughter sent me this one.
Has it been on the list already?............

Why Airplanes are Better than Women

1. An airplane will kill you quickly . . a woman takes her time.

2. Airplanes can be turned on with a flick of a switch.

3. An airplane does not get mad if you 'touch and go.'

4. An airplane does not object to a preflight inspection.

5. Airplanes come with manuals.

6. Airplanes have strict weight limits.

7. You can fly an airplane any time of the month.

8. Airplanes don't come with in-laws.

9. Airplanes don't whine unless something is really wrong.

10. Airplanes don't care about how many other airplanes you have flown.

11. When flying, you and your airplane both arrive at the same time.

12. Airplanes don't mind if you look at other airplanes, or if you buy
airplane magazines.

13. It's OK to use tie-downs on your airplane.


John Loram
