This is my first post here... I am considering switching
my project from a Cozy Mark IV to a Quickie Q2 and would
like to know, from those that have flown it, how well the
Revmaster 2100D 65hp engine suits the plane. I have never
been a fan of auto conversions, but researching the
Quickie/VW history and other VW conversions I am nearly
convinced they're capable and safe when done right.
1) Are these specs for the Q2 accurate?
2) Is it wise/worth it/reasonable/smart/stupid to restore
an old zero-to-low time Revmaster engine into flightworthy
condition? Will it deliver 65hp?
3) Will this engine power the Q2 well enough with only a
standard-sized pilot in the plane? With a passenger?
I am considering attending the Field of Dreams fly-in in
September. Any feedback before then is most welcome.
