Re: Resin volume placed on foam
Plastic airplane geeks are naturally drawn to the Quickies. But I agree I have had the good
fortune to learn from many at many different places in aviation, Eugen. That is not to
say that real advancement is only in multi billion dollar environments. Not at all! I strongly
feel the guy out in his Shop is a special part of aviation.
There are several people I wished I had been able to meet and learn from but cannot now since
they are "gone West" as we pilots say. But I am grateful, and not one day in aviation has
passed I didn't learn something new.
The Tandem Wing design are odd looking airplanes, and it fits with our personalities I suppose. 😊
Charlie..good to read your Tri Pacer is back on track.
What I was thinking in space manufacturing are the possibilities in materials and processes
not possible on terra firma (foam steel for instance..) I dunno what is next..there are probably
many innovations if we can just get established outside of gravity.
From now on the younger folks are going to have to work out all kinds of problems in
space travel and colonization. I hope the spirit of innovation we had when we were
younger is well and alive for the grads now moving into the various fields.

Wow. Great story and pictures!! Did not think that so many composite experts are here in this group. Great.
When I look at what you have worked with in your career in the field of composites, especially with these large furnaces, I feel really small with my little vacuum bag and the electric blankets. :-)) I think the Q1 would fit entirely in one of these ovens and many more......
