The Quaker gets some Work done...

Post  Kim on Thu Jul 12, 2018 7:59 pm

So, the antique replica 'Quaker' model I got at a Swap-Meet last January has had some the landing gear pulling out of the fuselage because it's mounting screws are just set into the balsa longerons. Balsa is NOT a good anchoring wood!

I had to get up into the nose to epoxy in some hardwood and ply plates, and drill some new holes for the screws. And, had to cut a 'cheater hole' in it's side to see what I was doing.

The windshield frame is rebuilt and painted (after a crash that I kept secret!), and ready for a new windshield.

With some good MoJo, it'll be heading to Little Rock in October.
AND, with a full throttle Medallion .15 up front, and a touch of forward trim, it may even give Tony's 'Barn Swallow' a run for it's money !!!!

Had a good morning work session on my 'Swap Meet Quaker'.
The windshield is in place on it's rebuilt frame, the landing gear is mounted to hardwood plates in it's belly, and we're gonna try flying it with the spare wing with a flat-bottomed airfoil.

It's other wing, a semi-symmetrical version, flew great 'till the engine quit, at which time the plane would plummet from the sky like a meteorite.

Going to fly it at first chance so, everybody wish it positive vibes !!!

Wishing you "all the best" this time around Kim. The spare/flat-bottom wing-swap will make a big difference.. I'm sure. Good to have stout "mains" now too. Nice job!! Thumbs Up Thumbs Up
