Re: Max flying Weight

Mike Dwyer

So two 250lb guys can fit in?  Going to be a tight fit. 

I think one danger is the canard stress in a hard landing or taxiing and hit a bump.  The canard sees the equivalent of 4Gs when sitting in the ground.  A bump on taxi could double that.

Load a Cessna to gross and lift it by the wing tips.  You will break the wing.

Can someone help shed some light on this question? 

How heavy can a Q-2 fly with the LS-1 wing? I have heard 1100 gross, but has anyone gone over that? How much over? 

Is the quickie like many other planes, where as you would just keep your speeds a little higher and let's say another 100 lbs would be ok?

I ask because I weight 250 and most of my friends are around the same weight. My plane is 665 Empty. 

I have a revmaster 2100 stock.
