First air-to-air shots of N8WQ

Jay Scheevel
 

Went up and flew by my buddy in his Champ this morning, so he took some pictures. I did not crop, because the scenery is as interesting as my little plane (but I am pretty proud of both the scenery and my plane). Hope you enjoy the winter look of my neck of the woods/desert.

Awesome, Jay.  Nice looking country too.

Looks great!   Good pilot skills to stay that slow so he could get the shot!

What? You could fly with a Champ? Did you install flaps or something? I don't see a drag parachute in the photos.

Look at the sandbar position on the strut and Jays tail position relative to the sandbar in the two photos. This is a flyby no formation here.

I took my Tri-Pacer to Copperstate two days ago great weather high 60’s low70’s. I do not have that patchy white stuff Jay! Great photos!

Charlie gets the "CSI Colorado" forensics award. I was dragging it along at about 85 and my friend in the Champ was speeding along at 70, so I still went by him pretty fast. When he gets his Stearman out of hibernation, I may be able to get in formation then and get some good photos.

Great Pics Jay, Wished are weather was that good this weekend.

Jay,

I tried to fly formation with a Taylorcraft one day in my Dragonfly VW. I went around that block once. So I took a critical look at your two pictures. You were a field ahead of him by the time he snapped the second one!

Hi Jay, glad to see you are having fun with your Q and your first aerial shots. I just attached this pix of me and Bob being up close and personal.😊 so you see you can get a little closer to the camera.

Btw, for those of you who know Ray McCray at LVK  his world famous 2400 hour Long Eze, got severely damaged late Friday due to a brake failure.   

Once again, the Nyloseal tubing failed. Beware. I’m switching to Stainless wrapped Braided Teflon. 

Jay Scheevel
 

Thanks Jim, but you two are fully trained airmen!  Give my condolences to Ray. He was out here last fall and I got to have a few lunches with him. His plane looked great with the new paint, so I bet he is sad. Glad he was not hurt. I hope it can be repaired. I put 1/8” stainless in mine, and am using SS wrapped Teflon in the transitions to the master cylinders and to the slave cylinders. I think you will like the piece of mind.

 

Cheers,

Jay

I’ll let Ray know you’re thinking about him.

I plan on using AN2 S/S braided Teflon, 3,000 psi. Do you see any issues running AN2 full length from caliper to brake cylinders on rudder pedals, other than the difference in weight? Just curious.

That raises a question.  Has any Tail Dagger Q had a nylaflow failure?  The nose wheel versions can really stand on the brakes so the Tri-Q might benifit from better brake line.

I have had aluminum tubing and braided stainless steel Teflon from the beginning.  No worries here.
I do understand that the Nyla flow is effected by heat ie being close to the brake disc/caliper.

Nylaflow ages poorly. Nylon requires a small amount of water in the matrix. We had to soak injected molded nylon structural parts in 190 F water for 24 hrs after injecting at 600 F. I believe the water slowly disperses by evaporation over time and heat exposure reducing flexibility.

I converted to stainless steel 1/8” lines with flexible SS braided Teflon lined swaged fittings in 2006. No leaks firmer brakes. Steel is real no fatigue.

Hi Jim,

 

I think that one piece solution will be fine and dandy. Need the high pressure fittings on each end. I ordered mine pre-made from discounthydraulichose.com

Saved a lot of headache and was very reasonably priced. Unfortunately, I think 1/4 “ is the minimum size for them.

 

Cheers,

Jay

Hi Mike,

 

Jim P can confirm whether I am correct or now, but I think that he (Jim) has had a failure in one of his nylaflow lines, and it was in the outer third of the wing, not close to the wheel.

 

Cheers,

Jay
