New SQ

Recommended Posts

As long as the inspection goes well I'm picking up an SQ2000 kit this weekend. Full kit with the KLS retracts not the Infinity. I still plan to install a rear seat bench but really its going to be a 2 place with large baggage area. I will try and start a progress thread on this build. One of the best looking canards out there in my opinion.

Not really sure. I'm not that set on selling it. At the time when I made the deal to purchase I was set on building again. I didn't want to back out on the sale so I figured I'd just buy it and figure out what to do with it later..Just figured if I got a good offer I would let it go and get out of the Airplane building hobby.

Whats the specs on one of these..size of engine...fuel capacity...real cruise, not a salesman's promise?

Now think about it...wouldn't you rather LIVE your life, rather than watch someone else's, on Reality T.V.?

Get up off that couch!!! =)

These numbers are from Paul Lee's SQ RG. He has about 200 hours on it.

The kit I have is set up for an IO-360 and not Franklin like Pauls. I was planning on using a 2 blade Hertzler.

 

Empty weight: 1410 lbs (1394 lbs w/o 9qt oil)

Engine: rebuilt 6A-350-C2 Franklin 6 block, approximately 200 HP.

Prop: 66" 3 blade, IVO magnum in-flight adjustable

Fuel Capacity: 35 gal. (incl 2.25 gal sump tank)

Landing gear: 3 retractable

 

The following are at 1850lbs & 117 CG (values change with weight and/or CG position)

- Climb: 2000ft/min (105kts, 2000 dens alt).

- Ceiling: 18K+ feet. (still doing 200+ft/min)

- Best glide ratio: approx 19:1 (105kts, 3000 dens alt)

- Fuel efficiency: best about 5 gal/hr near 120 kts.

- Canard stall: 66kts.

- Takeoff distance: approx 1500ft, rotate at 80kts (IVO electric adjustable prop.)

- Landing rollout distance: approx 2000ft (about best I can do and prefer 4000ft + runways)
