Hi all,

Feels good to introduce myself to some like minded people. I'm
purchasing a Tri Q thats been stripped down for inspection over here
in rainy blighty.
Sure I'll probably have some questions along the way and just wanted
to let you all know i'm here

Welcome Austin,

Where is "rainy blighty"? I'm guessing England??

Tell us more about your plane and what your plans are for it.

Hi Jon and Richard,

Rainy blighty is indeed england.
Yes Richard, it's the airframe farry had for sale and it is quite
tidy. Hope to get it as pristeen as his. He's only down the road and
so i'll be nicking ideas off of him and others alot to try to get it
good.

It has a reflexor and i'm going to order the new noseleg soon. Got
to install a new firewall, sand and fill the airframe and re-install
the controls.

It's got a new 85hp VW so i need to move the engine mounts about too
as it was a Tri-Q200.

Hope to have it ready for next summer. I've got a lot of holiday to
use up so Lisa (wife) and I are going to get reall stuck in over the
winter.

All hints and tips apprieciated.

Austin

Hi Austin, Farry's is immaculate, I think you will get lots of
useful info from him.
I don't have a reflexer, I have the little tailplane type trimmer
mounted on the fin. I did think about changing it to a reflex, but
advice has been to stick with it. I could do with some rigging info
if anyone has it please.
Has yours got the rear belly airbrake mod by the main gear leg? I'm
thinking that it may be worthwhile for short runways like we get in
UK, but advice is mixed. One point made was that it lets the engine
fumes straight in the cockpit. You might like to ask farry if he has
this problem, or is his box sealed?
Filling and sanding of defects. I have been at that for a couple of
weeks now, just on the tailcone at first to experiment. I'm using
West epoxy with a dryish mix of 401 ultralight filler which seems to
bond quite well, and gives a fairly hard surface which sands well,
but possibly not quite so quick as polyester type fillers. I will
float it over with primer and a finish of two pack poly. Then if that
goes well I'll use the same process on the Fuselage.
Happy Sanding.

Richard,

I have the airbrake mod installed. Hadn't heard of the engine fume
problem previously. It seems to be plumbed in pretty tightly but at
100+knots air can get anywhere i suppose.(i don't know if there is a
speed limit on it's use)

Does anyone have any answers on this subject?

Austin,
For the speed limit, in the section about the belly board that was added to my Q-2 construction plans, it says: "We recommend that the board be deployed at a maximum of 110 knots (126 mph). After deployment, a maximum speed of 130 knots (150 mph) should be observed."

Hi Gerard,
If it is the tail dragger, the speed brake is under the tank , whereas I
think that Austins is under the main gear if it is like Farrys. It opens at
the front as well, like a big airscoop.
It would be interesting to note if any of the other Tri Q guys have one, and
how much difference it actually makes. Could be I need to do it after all,
if anyone has the plan for that version.

Hi Guys,

I'll confirm that as Richard says it sits under the main gear and does
open at the front like a scoop.
