"Hammer Head Twin" Cox/Sanwa "Q-Tee" Empty "Hammer Head Twin" Cox/Sanwa "Q-Tee"

Post  Kim on Sun Apr 08, 2012 11:51 am

Continuing to devise new methods of torture for my late Uncle Bill's wonderful little "Q-Tee" (assuming that I ever actually get a radio installed in the thing), I decided to make one of it's replaceable firewalls into what we used to call a "Hammerhead" twin.

I've seen this several times before (Dornier makes a full-scale aircraft, and there's also the great little French "Cri-Cri homebuilt plane), but never actually tried it. It's a bit like "slapping the Dragon on the butt" since I do good to get a decent run out of ONE .020 lately, and will either make me seem like an adventurer, or more likely, a model airplane masochist !

I think I posted about the Q-Tee before, but couldn't find it. I've installed a front-end designed to take additional plywood plates, allowing me to run some of these oily dust-collectors on whatever mount they require.

So, this is the latest brain-burp. It looks a little "Insectual", or perhaps, "Snailish". Anyway, the first flight WILL be videoed for all to enjoy.

How about putting a pusher prop on one and run it CW? You know, in the interests of Science, to see if it makes a difference in twin/single engine operation.

?? Is there even a matching pusher prop for a PeeWee??

Dang, if the spread on that mount was just a bit wider for prop clearance, I see room for 2 more motors. Very Happy

Sledgehammer Quad "T"!!!!, 2 pulling, 2 pushing!. The trick would be getting all 4 running at the same time.

Just put 3 blade props on.

Also mount pushers to the back of the firewalls. Smile
