Nice Progress! Where can one get the peel ply with lines in it?

In Europe we get it from R&G, please find the link below R&G peel ply   but in the other cases I use Compoflex  peel ply Compoflex 150 SB for vacuum infusion is much better.

Hello together,

so far the Q1 fuselage is done with the outside glass. The next steps will be to produce the Main Wing and canards. The foam is already delivered by the supplier.

Here we go with main wing ailerons slot with 1 bid and peelply on the top. To reduce the twist there was placed some weight to press it on the flat table.

So far the bottom wing is done and ready to place a frame and switch it on the top side. They was place two peel ply sheet so the top do not get in touch with each area, but the bottom ply fit.

Does anyone know where we can get accurate measurements for the Q1?

I bought the $99 pack but didn't realize that this just has the foam cutouts. How you built that 3D model with exact measurements of the quickie is a mystery :)

All information you need to build that aircraft you will find in the Q-Package, in the build plans and in the QAC News Letters. Exact is relative here, however, especially since there are not so many available or active on the Internet who have built a Q1 …….

Excuse my ignorance, but that GU canard you are using, with only one strip of carbon for the spar, does that mean that the skin also is used for bending moment?

I understand that the LS1 canard can be used for the Q200 and the Q1, but you need a round carbon fibre spar that is hard to come by. The Australian person who used to make it on Quickheads is likely gone on to other things... :(
