On my TriQ I have similar concerns to those Jerry notes in the
mod write up, in fact when I got it, the belly board had been
bolted shut and the handle was removed. I have replaced it to the
TriQ plan, but it does sit slightly proud, at the corners, so for
me Jerry's mod is something I will look to do on mine next year
after we have got it flying.
The Triq nose gear fits along the underneath of the Canard, so
probably not possible to use the Q2/Q200 Belly board, if you are
wondering why there are 2 versions.

Figured I would post these based on today's discussion. Both sets
of plans are available on Quickheads for comparison. Turns out my
Q2 has the Tri-Q version (not sure why), so worth checking if you
have a new or new-to-you Quickie?

The primary difference
is in location, geometry, and materials:
Both versions hinge from the rear and "scoop" air up from the
front; although Jerry
Marstall has flipped his around for reasons he explains.
Haven't flown mine yet, so hopefully some experienced Q-drivers
can chime in on what (if any) handling differences exist between
the two versions...
- The QAC version uses a carbon board originally sold as part
of an upgrade kit, while the Tri-Q version uses the foam cut
from the fuselage.
- From the hinge, the QAC version is a long & tall
rectangle, while the Tri-Q version is a narrow & wide
- The QAC version is located between the canard spar and under
the forward part of the fuel tank (see last page of PDF),
while the Tri-Q version goes behind the seat back bulkhead in
the baggage/landing gear area (see last figure).
Hope it helps,
