Q-Talk 167 - Field of Dreams Fly-In 2014

FOD 2014

DATELINE: ORANGE, MA 2013
Yaas, you read that right: 2013. For many years the Quickie Builders Association held its annual Q gathering (the so-called Field of Dreams) in the Midwest, in and around the Kansas City area.

After a more than 20 year history, the Midwest event organizers ran out of gas so up stepped Dave Dugas of Orange Massachusetts (West of Boston) who built his Q2 as QAC originally intended.

FOD Attendees

Dave had flown to our Midwest events several times and he decided it was high time we all flew to his N.E. environs for a change. And so he invited us to a "Field of Dreams" event at his base in Orange MA. He enticed us with a promise of lobsters galore.

Mutha Nature was not in the mood to cooperate in 2013. The weather sucked and the Midwest flatlanders didn't see much sense in poking around in mountains, low cloud and rain. A couple who tried, backed off and one even had an "excitement" that took a year of recovery. The event was poorly attended by the 4 wheelie guys; Dugas was disappointed. (Somebody sent around a photo of a galvanized garbage can full of cooked, red, lobsters. Now THAT was disappointing to me!)

Mike Bergen's Bonanza

Northeasterners must have a stubborn streak because Dugas was determined to do it again in 2014. This time Mutha Nature couldn't fight the feeling and produced an absolutely outstanding fall weekend … but not without a brief scare of a storm crawling up the eastern seaboard. Nobody wanted to disappoint Dave a second time by being bullied by Mutha Nature, so most of us arrived a day early on Thursday.

Bruce Crain's TriQ200

Every day the weather in Orange was bright, sunny and mild with the beginning of glorious fall color changes in the trees around us. The aircraft count included:

NAME STATE AIRCRAFT HOW LONG
Dave Dugas MA Q2 Acft flying 25 years
Sam Hoskins IL Q200 Acft flying 28 years
Paul Fisher IL Q200 Acft flying 24 years
Jerry Marstall NC TriQ200 Acft flying 17 years
Bruce Crain OK TriQ200 Acft flying 17 years
Rod Herzig MA Cozy UNKNOWN
Mike Bergen MD Bonanza Flying since God was a boy

There was a great deal of variety for the 4-wheelie attendees to see.

Sam Torquing

The field has a pair of paved 5,000 foot runways and a small detached chapter meeting house which is adequately plumbed, electrified, chaired and tabled.

Nice Recovery Sam!

With most people already in position, Friday was a lazy day featuring folks like the only gurl (Mary Masal), the slowest builder in the west (Sam Kittle), Mister greenshorts (Alan Thayer), Dave's right hand man and Cozy driver (Rod Herzig) and an interloper from Canada (Marc "Bishop", I can't spell his French name) who turned out to be an alright guy after I watched him with my evil eye for awhile.

[Editor's Note: Marc-Bernard Lévesque is a terrific Q enthusiast who made the trip from Montreal Canada and has promised to provide templates for the Q-200 upholstery set provided by QAC. He had some trouble with the way we were butchering the French language with our mispronunciations of words like "canard" and "decalage."]

Friday started with fog and a fine breakfast at Sharon's White Cloud Café across the street from the airport. The transient fog gave our "family" a chance to crank up the personalities and get caught up to date with each other. As for me, I was wincing from a painful wrenched back in need of a chiropractor. That's what those tight airline seats can get you if you're too frisky getting out. I was referred to Chuckie Baxter's Chiropractic Clinic.

Herrick's Tavern

After a Friday sunset we all trekked to Herrick's Tavern/Restaurant very close to the Travel Inn where many of us stayed. Dugas must have some kind of Mojo in Orange as we got ushered in past a crowded dining room to a private one already set up for 20 of us for dinner.

We had a most excellent waitress, and very soon the beer limbered up the vocal chords and party time was on the way. Happily, Herricks was only a short distance from the motel so that we could just waddle across the highway (looking both ways as momma taught) and flop into the sack.

Alien Invasion

Saturday morning opened up foggy again so we filled up a corner of Sharon's again just jabbering away and eating while the sky broke out in severe clear. And when it did, it was evident that somebody had a VERY late night on Friday because each Q was festooned with a 3 foot purple or green inflated Alien. This prompted a cacophony of laughing, smiling, and hijinks with the Aliens. After the guffawing and photo opportunities died down, pilots and builders shuffled into the chapter house for a talk given by Jay Scheevel.

Alien Invasion

Now we all know our craft are custom built by individuals with a wide variety of skills and tools. These planes are not like Cessnas or Mooneys built with precision certified factory jigs and fixtures. It follows then that each completed plane differs in performance slightly one from the other. This is evident when pilots discuss the quirks of their individual aircraft.

Jay Scheeval Preaching the Gospel

Jay Scheevel found this to be an interesting curiosity. He set out on a self-imposed project several years ago to see if any sense could be made of what exactly caused the differences. He concentrated his focus on thrust lines, canard and main wing mounting angles and the relationship between them.

Jay Scheeval Preaching the Gospel

He built a gizmo to measure these factors and took static photos on the ground as well as in the air whenever he could. His PowerPoint presentation was fascinating. It seemed to start as a yawn inducing graphical presentation of performance data but brought the pilots bolt upright when he proposed the likely real performance quirks based on the graphs. Several pilots had "AHA!" moments when they understood what the graphs forecasted (eg. Why do I use a higher approach speed than other planes?)

Jay had a disclaimer: This was not NASA quality research and analysis but it was carefully thought out and was a big plateful of food for thought. It was provocative and brain burning. WHEW.

Paul Fischer Fly-by

It was time to get some lunch and do some flying. Alan Thayer began to circulate the idea of all of us flying somewhere for lunch since we had 6 planes on the field. He just couldn't resist the temptation to do something with them and in fact the skies were clear and remained so with record high temperatures for this time of year. Dave suggested we fly to Keene, N.H. with a nice airport restaurant and only a 15 minute flight away. Those not in planes could drive there easily too. Arrival at Keene was set for 2:00pm.

Jon Matcho - First Ride

Right on schedule 4 "other worldly" looking aircraft dropped out of the sky with 2 more shortly thereafter. The flight over was a sight to see: little white steepled churches, very, very old and tucked in among the dense trees already turning a deep red. Little towns and villages steeped in history and people on the radio with accents from another time. Lunch was terrific and the service was excellent.

The flying got even better for when we got back to Orange we hatched a plan to use Rod's Cozy as a photo plane and snap some air-to-air pic's of whoever wanted to pull by. WOW, the crystal clear blue skies and the great cameras we have in our phones these days made for some stunning pictures even through the plexiglass in the Cozy.

And then it was time to shuck some corn, wash a bushel of clams and babysit 60 live "lobstas". At the same time Dan Yager brought out some practice "confidence" layups made per plans for some destruction testing.

[EDITOR'S NOTE: Jim asked me to do a write-up about the destructive testing of our "confidence layups" on the field. However, I am pitching that as another article for a national magazine, and I will let everyone know how that goes. If I can't get any bites from the print guys, I will do a more thorough write-up in the next issue of Q-talk, "I promise!" Below are a couple teaser photos of our "Rube Goldberg" looking but highly repeatable test apparatus, and the results.]

The Test Rig



The Test Rig



The Results

Sunset began to wane behind the forested western hills straining to show some New England fall colors. A fire was struck and galvanized trash cans full of corn, clams or lobsters in sequence were set to steaming. "All the King's men" (and ladies) were unable to eat all the corn, clams and lobsters set before us (all at a very neighborly cost too!). WOW! We could've used a phalanx of wheelbarrows to get our bellies back to the house.

Corn Huskers

It was a whale of digestion overnight but by Sunday noon everyone had squeezed into the planes along with baggage and a bottle of maple syrup gifted by Dave Dugas and wife Dianna and headed into the sky outbound.

JetEZ UPDATE

Lance Hooley sent me a couple of quick videos to show the progress he's made on his JetEZ project. He moved from testing the engine to taxi testing! Looks like he will be ripping through the sky in great haste VERY soon! Good luck Lance!






Turns Out That Template Does Exist

In the last issue we talked about how Sam had some trouble ensuring that his LS1 canard was built with the correct shape.

Well it turns out that QAC did create a template to help with that . . . I had just never seen it before.

Kevin Boddicker set me straight, and mailed the template to me. I have it scanned, and I will make it available to the group as soon as I get it formatted

Thanks Kevin


Coming Soon!

Wayne Bressler sent me all of the metal parts from his unstarted Q1 project. I will be making drawings of each of these and making them available to the group. I will also add them to the "Ultimate Quickie Package"

Sam Hoskins is almost finished re-building his LS1 canard. He took good notes (and photos) and I will include them in my effort to update the LS1 plans.

Stay tuned!


Q-talk Index

Newsletter Index

The purpose of this index is to help locate information on specific subjects that might be contained within the articles published in the QBA newsletters.

The QBA newsletter was started in 1982. It was called QUICKTALK and there were six issues published every year for five years (82-86). A total of 30 issues were published with the QUICKTALK name. The issues were numbered 1 through 30.

In 1987 the name of the newsletter was changed to Q-TALK. The issue numbers started over again at number one. There were still six issues published every year.

The index is sorted by year. Each line has an issue number followed by a page number.(e.g. 26 7) Remember that issue numbers 1 through 30 are repeated. Thirty issues of QUICKTALK (1-30), followed by thirty plus issues of Q-TALK (1-72).

A KEY word follows the page number and then is followed by an article description.

If you find any errors in this index please contact me. I will be glad to make the corrections.

Thanks,
Dan Yager

2014 Airventure - Oshkosh
 
July 28th - August 3rd, 2014
Hosted by The Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA)
 
Oshkosh, WI
 


For 51 weeks a year, EAA is an international community of more than 160,000 members that nurtures the spirit of flight through a worldwide network of chapters, outreach programs, and other events. But for one week each summer, EAA members and aviation enthusiasts totaling more than 500,000 from more than 60 countries attend EAA AirVenture at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, where they rekindle friendships and celebrate the past, present and future in the world of flight.

"The World's Greatest Aviation Celebration" has it all when it comes to aircraft. Warbirds. Vintage. Homebuilts. Ultralights. Some you would normally find in a hangar at your local airport, others so unique they are the only one of its kind.

You name it, there's likely an example of it at Oshkosh.

Doug Humble will host a QBA Type Club Meeting, held on the patio at the Homebuilders HQ Thursday, July 31st at 8:30 to 10 AM.

2014 Field of Dreams Fly-in
 
September 26th-28th, 2014
Hosted by Dave Dugas
 
(KORE) Orange, MA
 

We're all set at ORE for the 24th (I think) Annual Field of Dreams Tandem Wing Fly-in, to be held Friday-Sunday September 26-28, 2014. There is a very convenient motel less than a mile from the airport. It's the Executive Inn, and is reasonably priced; $65.00 for a single room, $70-$75.00 for a double room. The $65.00 and $70.00 rooms are 1 bed, $75.00 for 2 beds. The Executive Inn isn't fancy, but I had a tour, and it was clean and the $75.00 room that I was shown is large and had a small refrigerator. It has 28 rooms. The phone number is 978-544-8864.

http://www.northquabbinwoods.org/entries/172

I know it's a little early but when you reserve a room let me know how you make out.
