    Quickie (Q1/Q2/Q200/Tri-Q)
  1. Thanks all for the info! I just learned that there is a broken bulkhead brace at the interface point of front/rear fuselage (see attached). That seems to lend credence to the flying and wrecked theory to me. Should I be concerned with the structural integrity of the entire craft then? Also, I don't know exactly what extended time in storage does to the structure; I think it went in somewhere around 2000. Just trying to figure if this is a project I could work slowly on, or if it is just a bad idea to begin with.
  2. Hi all, I've just come across a Q2 on Craigslist for a heck of a price. Apparently the plane was almost (if not fully) finished, but the builder died before the first flight. It was stored in a shed, but judging by the corrosion on the included RevMaster 2100, I'm wondering how dry it was. Two things I've found out: the canards are the original airfoil (sensitive to surface contamination) and there is a puncture in the leading edge of the left canard. Basically, I'm wondering if it's worth getting into. I've read that adding vortex generators can take care of the lift issue (what does that do to speed?) and that repairing the fiberglass isn't a big issue, but I don't know. I haven't gone to look at it yet. I have significant mechanical aptitude, but no experience yet building planes; especially composites. Any thoughts, opinions, or guidance? Thanks! -David
