I don't see the Prop specs
I looked through the POH, I don't see the L/D ratio. The POH does
With the engine off and the propeller windmilling, the Quickie has
a glide ratio of approximately 13 to 1 at 75 IAS. This means for
each 5000 feet of altitude, the Quickie will glide 12.3 statute
miles in 0 wind.
The Quickie POH was posted as a pdf by Dave King, downloadable
from the files section of Q-List.
Also, what is max RPM on the Onan per POH? If memory
serves it's probably about 2400 RPM but if you could check
the POH for me that would be great.

I'm at AirVenture and need to get my hands on an L/D
graph for a typical Quickie airplane. I don't recall
this info being in the POH but I did not bring mine
along so cannot check. If this design info is not in
POH does anyone know if QAC ever made such info
available in some way? Also, what was the typical
prop size on the original 18 hp Onan, and also on
some of the typical 2-cycle engines of higher HP
that some of our builders installed? Any info you
could easily provide me ASAP would be greatly
