An extensive test program has been conducted since Oshkosh by Revmaster and Eric Schilling on both the Maloof prop and Turbo installation. Eric has written an article for “Sport Aviation” but we don’t know which issue it will appear in as yet. “Homebuilt Aircraft” will feature theTurbo in the July issue. There is a nice article in the April 1984 issue of “VW & Porsche” covering the Turbo & Revmaster’s background.
Some changes to the fuel system are necessary with the Turbo due to the extremely high deck angle that can be obtained during climb. We have also found that the air induction system needs modification. Cowling, spinners, and other components are not complete but all these details should be resolved in the next 90 days. Contact QAC for availability and pricing information.
NEW HEADS FOR Q2
During testing on theTurbo, Revmaster dynoed some new cylinder heads with larger ports and valves. These combined with a different lower induction pipe showed about a 10 horsepower increase on a stock Revmaster engine. We have installed this configuration on Scott Swing’s Q2 at Mojave, and will conduct a test program as quickly as possible. These new heads incorporate all of the features in valve and seat material developed for the Turbo. This is an easy change which will narrow the performance difference between the Q2 and Q-200.
Q-200 PILOT REPORTS
The March issues of “Homebuilt Aircraft” and “Air Progress” feature pireps on the Q-200, N81QA. Bill Cox’s article in “Homebuilt” is particularly informative as he flew in rain and gusting crosswinds. We are having both of these articles reprinted. If any of you can’t find the magazines and want a copy f the articles, we should have them in a .ew days. No charge, of course, but please send a self addressed, stamped envelope. The March issue of “Sport Aviation” has a cover article on the Q-200. We are also featured in an upcoming Kit Plane Special by “Private Pilot” and in several non aircraft magazines: March “Discover” and “Singles Magazine.”
