Jim, thanks for posting that video, it was very informative. Anyone who might pull a cylinder should spend the hour watching it.

Kevin Sheely was gracious enough to give me all the 0200 new baffles I needed except for the pax side front baffle ( the one below the split line right side near prop). One more shout out, does anyone have that baffle? I can make it but would rather find one. Thanks again Kevin. You Florida boys are great!

Re: Panel Dimensions for Q200

Jay Scheevel
 

That would work, but the knobs, avionics pop-outs, etc will make the paper wider than in real life. Just sent an alternative approach that limits this distortion.

 

Cheers,

Take a big piece of paper and mask it over your existing panel to create a template and take it from there.

Re: Panel Dimensions for Q200

Hi Corbin,

 

There was a template in the Q2 plans. That said, I doubt that anyone’s panel actually matches that, since that is the most likely place in the plane for the builder to “leave his own signature”.  I would suggest getting some thin poster poster board and cutting it into 1” wide strips, following the general curve of the perimeter of the panel, then taping these, end to end with masking tape that laps over the angle between the panel and the fuselage, or just follows the panel if it does not intersect the fuselage. By cutting carefully with a razor knife along the tape in the corner where it joins laps onto the fuselage, you will have the shape/curve of the panel. Then lay it on a table and measure the bottom of the panel width, then put another piece of posterboard across the bottom to make sure the bottom of the panel is the same width. This should give you a good shape to work with. Good luck.

 

Cheers,

Jay

Wow. it's been a while sense last flying.  Our local airport closed RWY 9-27.  I guess they didn't want to re-pave it.  I kinda hated that runway anyway...  But then they decided to pave the intersecting end where the last two runways were.  Then they closed the good runway 4-22 and left all the Training flights, Air Carriers, Coast Guard choppers and C130's to fight it out.  The ground controllers have aged 10 years.  The tower folks are doing fine, just keep em circling!  

Then came COVID!  At least aviation is critical.  But what happened is COVID grounded most of the air carriers.  It might have really slowed down the coast guard also as I didn't see any of them at the airport.  I'd say we are back to the traffic count from 1980.

So planning on a long and hot taxi I fired up the Q200.  Luckily they were using RWY 36 so that's my shortest taxi.  No 3 min wake turbulence delays!  Got right off.  Flew about an hour, all the way down our beaches from Tarpon Springs FL to Egmont Key.  Our beaches are closed.  So from the water to the high tide line is the only place people can be.  How did these people get on the beach?  Some took boats, that's ok.  Most cheated the system.

Anyway a beautiful day for aviating, 80F, clear sky, 7K cross wind.  Check out the video I shot.  Unfortunately most of the video was shot pointing into the sun which kinda wrecks it.  And my front camera died pretty early so it didn't get the landing...  Still I needed proof.  I took out the parts the feds might not have liked 😬  

Get your Q done while your on Furlough!

Re: Friction Lock "Knob"

I have a box of knobs. What diameter is the post?  Is it similar to a radio knob ( types I have) or is it something larger that you need for torquing?  Would a handle like a window sill
crank be more appropriate?

I made mine with epoxy. I used the plastic lid from a spray can of something or other.and put the proper nut in there and poured the epoxy in. Thread the nut and coat the threads with Vaseline. Yessaah.

I think it just looks like that in the poor quality photo that I took.  It went back  on just fine and that is the same length sticking out that it has always been.

Looks like the shaft broke off.  There is not enough sticking out to put a knob on.  You'll have to find a new shaft.  Take it apart and see what it looks like.  The trim lock is a nice thing to have on a LS1 canard.  Not sure about your GU canard...
