The Quickie Q2 is a side-by-side canard-type aircraft. Major differences from the other Rutan EZs are:
- Tractor (vs. pusher) propeller
- The Quickie canard provides the majority of the lift
- The nose gear does not retract in the tri-gear configuration
- A tail-dragger configuration is also an option
- VariEze-like performance
I came upon an opportunity to acquire an unstarted Q2 kit that I could not resist.
I will explain my plans for all of this (my Cozy, the Tri-Q, and this Q2 kit) in the near future as I'm still working through some of it. Until then, here's a picture of me "flying" the Q2.
