The plans called for them to be at the root because that put them in the
prop blast, which made them more effective and allowed them to be smaller than
if they were outboard.

Sam H,
Was I dreaming, or are your sparrow strainers fairly close to the root
end. Mine are in the middle, so what is the thinking behind it ? Does
it matter where they are ?

Anyone else?

Mine are also close to the fuselage. I did it cause thats how the factory plane was, also gives the least adverse yaw, which couldn't be much.

Richard,
I have my sparrow strainers mounted just behind the middle hinge support of the elevator, as indicated on plans. I asked the same question this fall, because I noticed most Q2/200 have the strainers mounted close to the fuselage. I was told that the "close to fuselage position" takes advantage of prop wash.

2-3 inches from the fuselage.

Thanks Everyone, thats most informative. Mine are also behind the centre
support currently, but they need remaking, so the inboard sounds like place
to go.
By the way, has anyone got pages 19 - 32 of the Tri Q conversion
construction notes ? Recompense to any willing person.
