Building a Q1
I'm looking into the possibility of building a Quickie from scratch and have been avidly reading all I can find.
I do however have a few questions (for now) which I can't seem to find an answer to:
1. Does someone still own the rights to the design or can anyone theoretically get hold of the original construction manual and plans and just build one.
I understand that a lot if the hardware will have to be made from scratch but from what I've seen so far it all looks quite straight forward.
2. Reading around this group, it is clear that there have been quite a few refinements made to these aircraft over the years. Is there a generally agreed upon list of the "must have" mods for a Q1 somewhere?
3. I've tried to join the Q-performance list recently but have yet to receive approval. Is that list still active?
I'm sure there will be a lot of interesting information there, if only I could get to it...
Thanks in advance for any advice.
