Sandaircraft Posted April 9, 2022 Share Posted April 9, 2022 I am soon to be the owner of a Q2 turbo, was once a flying aircraft now abandoned. If i determine that there is enough to work with (not deteriorated beyond hope) im planing on restoring. Im an a&p IA so i know what im up against. Just looking for knowledge. Questions (1) is there a difference between the Q2 and Q200? I most likely will go with a corvair powerplant, ive seen mention of carbon spars on the q200. So any information there would help. Building a new wing wont be a killer as i would build the ls1. (2) where are the failure points on these airframes, or any areas that should be inspected for potential damage, deterioration, before putting time in and later finding a project killer. (3) must have upgrades, reflexors, squirrel killers(the extensions on the elevators, drawing blank on name), hydraulic brakes. The "wish i had done this" list. (4) whats the realistic gross weight, and empty weight, i dont want a heavy turd so will weigh as soon as i get it cleaned up. any other advise i may be overlooking or not thinking of? thanks in advance for any advise.
