Revanoorerz caught ya over thar in Enid!? 

 The Chinese have been buying up green country acres as far back in the woods as possible and building Pot growing greenhouses like crazy. They don't realize how much electricity it takes and the flags are obvious to see the legal farms from the outlaw ones.   

 I'll be watching the 10 o'clock news tonight to see if your mug is on the screen or not Bruce..  Ggggg.

Wonderful video!  I couldn’t be there for virtual!  Had to go to prison!  But that’s another story!
Lots of sharp mods!  Hoping for the best Chris!
You modulated very well Paul!

Hi Chris,

No experience with the Seahawker (other than drooling over the design some years ago).

As far as your Q goes, I am sure you were quite careful in setting up your incidence, but I can check for you just to make sure. The plans were not very good in how to maintain that aspect of the build. You have wingtips that are modified, since you have added the horner style, so I will need to do the analysis at the wing root on both wings. Get back a few feet from the end of the wing and take a photo parallel to the wing, the top side. Center the camera view on the wing root and have your site line a foot or so above the wing. Make sure the light is such that I can see the wing-fuselage junction clearly. Then do the same with the canard. Send me the photos offline (jay-at-scheevel-dot-com) and I will have a look at them and get back to you. I did this recently on a project that Sam and Jerry were helping out on. I think that yours will be easier to do.

Cheers,
Jay

Jay---------- Thanks for the transponder antenna note. I'll move it tomorrow.

My airplane is built as close to the plans as possible with the addition of the +1 degree on the canard.

What kind of pictures do you need, and would you like to do the same thing on a Seahawker.?

According to some of the old newsletters it doesn't follow the proper formula for decalage.

Getting the weight back to the tail and will do another W+B soon.
Waiting for my friend to weld up my modified tail wheel.

I tack things in place and he welds them up. I know my week points. Take care----------- Chris

One other thing, Chris. There was some discussion on how plane responds (reflexor, landing etc). When Paul is talking that I was nodding my head, since I have measured his decalage, and what he does for landing and cruise is predictable based on his decalage. Other planes and pilots with different decalage set-ups will tell you different things. This can be confusing if you do not know the decalage of those planes that people are giving you their impressions of.

 

If you want, Chris, I can do a fairly accurate measurement of your decalage from photos. Let me if you want me to do that prior to your first flight. Be happy to give you whatever insight I can.

 

Cheers,

Jay  Tri-Q2, N8WQ 160 hours

Thanks Sam and Chris for this enjoyable tour. Sorry I missed the live version.

 

Only one comment for Chris right now. I would suggest moving the transponder to the other side of the fuselage. The location of the battery will blank out about 150 degrees of receive and transmit. No way to transmit or receive through copper and lead plates.

 

Reg Clarke was doing 220+ mph true in his last race to OSH, but he was at 18,000’  They canceled the race before it finished due to weather, so it was never official.

 

Cheers,

Jay

Thank you for posting and thank you Chris for presenting.

Very cool plane!

I wanted to be watching live, but had a chance for a flight lesson in a Champ, and had to take it.

See everyone next time, Anthony.

Watching it now.  I've been waiting for this one for the subaru tech.
