Re: Considering Very First Composite Project - Guidance Appreciated

Jay Scheevel
 

Just uploaded a document that you should read to familiarize yourself with composite construction, prior to starting your work. Folks here can help you with the specifics of materials you will want to order (usually from Aircraft Spruce).

 

Here is the link for the document I loaded https://q-list.groups.io/g/main/files/Composite%20materials%20education/RAF_composite_education_section_from_Q2Plans.pdf

 

Once people have a chance to chime in, you can start designing your install and build using techniques in the above document. If you don’t get any suggestions for installations, I will chime in and tell you what I would do.

 

Cheers,

Jay N8WQ

Subject: [Q-List] Considering Very First Composite Project - Guidance Appreciated

 

I am moving this conversation over here, from Facebook, as recommended by Jay (thanks Jay). 

I would like to add a LED landing light to my Q200.  I am leaning towards building the light flush into my lower cowling as I don't want to run wiring down the lower wing to install in the wheel pants.  Although, it would be really cool to have a flush mount light in both wheel pants.  I have also considered just mounting it under the cowling back towards the cowl flap.  However, flush would be preferred if it is not too difficult to learn how to do this.  

So...on to my question.  I am open to taking on this project so that I get a flush mount light as well as learn how to work with composite material.  Can I use my current lower cowling as a mold or should I look into cutting and building the light into the existing cowling?  

Open to suggestions and how to start learning about working with composite materials.

Re: Corbin’s performance numbers

Agreed....and I think I can get a few more mph out of it.  Just need to "dial it in".  Thanks!


Re: Corbin’s performance numbers

Corbin
 

Thanks Bruce!  I sure do love the speed and efficiency!

Took the words out of my mouth, Bruce. Kind of supports the argument that the GU canard is the fastest. 2750 RPM and 190+ mph TAS!

Hey Corbin, 

The next time you are out testing your Q for performance numbers, try this method for a few more knots. In level flight, trim the elevators down just a little and reflex up just a little. Once speed is stabilized, drop the nose to unload and the speed will increase. Then Fly straight and level and see how long you can hold that increased speed with the same throttle setting. 😊

Cool story, Terry!  And I already thought your plane was tiny. That is REALLY tiny.

This model of my airplane was originally done by Robert Blaschke of Slovakia. He contacted me and asked for some detailed photos and info so he could make a 1/72  model. I almost didn't respond because I didn't think anyone would want to make detailed model that size. I was VERY wrong. he sent me some  photos during construction and I really couldn't believe the detail. You need a magnification to see the detail on this model. After showing it at model shows in Europe he asked me if I would like to have it. Fabulous offer I couldn't refuse. He was asked by Brengun to make a production version, this is on the youtube video below. If you really like working with very tiny parts this is the kit for you.
