If discussion about ideas is not the purpose of the Q-List, then it has noBased on where this conversation started, it seems that by "ideas" you
reason to exist.
mean "untested ideas that significantly change the structural or
aerodynamic properties of a Q-bird." (No offense intended, see
below.) I can think of several other reasons for this group:
1) Give advise to builders who are having trouble understanding the plans.
2) Provide flight reports to encourage builders.
3) Share "incident reports" to notify others about possible
4) Share proven/tested enhancements to the design.
5) Give advice on where to purchase parts.
There must be many more that don't come to mind in 30 seconds.
By the way, I am not a "just build it by the plans" guy. I am
building a tri-gear dragonfly with a Roncz (Long-EZ style) canard and
a corvair. I love discussing "untested ideas that significantly
change the structural or aerodynamic properties of a
Q-Bird/dragonfly." But I do it on a separate list specifically for
that purpose. It makes sense to me that radical design changes should
be kept separate from advise on how to build a mostly stock airplane.
I will go back into "lurker mode" now. :)
