Question on Canards and Main Wings

Bruce Crain

Hi “Q Bees”!  Say Mike Shuck sent this note to me with questions on main wing and canard.  I am forwarding this to all of you to see if we can get him the correct info.  He has agreed to do a seminar on the airfoils that we have as compared to the Epley airfoil.  He will present at Field Of Dreams and you don’t want to miss it!  Leaning in your direction a bit Jay!  
Thanks guys!

Subject: Question on Canards and Main Wings

Hi Bruce,

I'm working on the the canards and main wings re: airfoils.

I have the ordinates for them but for the Q2/Q200 and the Quickie but I need to know the chord length in inches of the canards for each of the 2 models and the chord length of the main wings of each of the 2 models. If the main wings are tapered I need the maximum chord and the minimum chord in inches and I can derive the mean aerodynamic chord from that data. This way I can calculate the Reynolds numbers for each.

I hope you can help me on this. I'm going to add a canard of my own design for the Q2/200 and airfoils for the main wings of each (for theoretical uses only) just to spice up the PowerPoint presentation.

Thank you!
