I'll respond cause Jim takes a really long time to type a message using that one finger, hunt and peck approach.... ;-)
Here is a pretty good link to the info:
In short, Jewett was killed in the crash of their "around the world without stopping" aircraft.
I flew a Q1 for about 500 hours and am aware of NO dangerous problems with it. In fact, it probably saved my bacon more times that I saved it. I flew with a Rotax 503 and 1835cc VW and MUCH, MUCH preferred the 4-stroke engine.

I just picked up a Q1 with the Onan engine. The plane hasn't flown for
about 10 years so I plan to restore it to flying condition and possibly install
a 1/2 VW 45 hp by Casler that weights about the same as the Onan.
You made this statement in a past post: "After Tom Jewett died I lost
interest in anything Gene Shehan had to say and discontinued my Q subscription."
Would you mind expanding on the statement..I'm not aware how Jewett
died..was it in a Q1 and is there concern about the Q1 that I should be aware of?
