Re: BRS Chute in a Q2

Another perspective. Would anybody send a non pilot on a solo in a q 200 with only 10 hours of instruction?

I'm trying to stay out of this ("if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all"), but I will provide some real world numbers. I've been flying my Q-200 taildragger for 27 years and have about 1,650 hours on it, so I think I can speak authoritatively about my particular airplane.
In a typical pattern I slow down to 120mph on downwind. Abeam the numbers I slow to 100mph. On short final I slow to 90mph. My plane stops flying at 80mph, so I always touchdown at or above that number.
I have flown 152s. I can't quote the speeds, but I know things happen considerably faster in my Q-200. In my opinion anyone who thinks they are about the same has clearly never flown a Q-200 and is doing the community a disservice by implying they are. Just my opinion.
