Garry Legare built the boxy one without QAC knowledge or assistance. Then heshowed up at the factory and they decided he had a good idea. Legare keptworldwide design and distribution rights, QAC got domestic US design anddistribution rights. The boxy one crashed during development for the kit.The rebuild included the re-design with molded fuselage parts. The split-upof design rights led to some divergence between the US version and theversion for the rest of the world; ground handling problems led to Legaredesigning the T-tail and QAC designing the reflexor, hence some of thedichotomy between US Q2/200s and the rest of the world's Q2/200s.-----Original Message-----From: main@Q-List.groups.io <main@Q-List.groups.io> On Behalf Of JayScheevelSent: Friday, April 9, 2021 5:03 PMTo: main@Q-List.groups.ioSubject: Re: [Q-List] Q2 PrototypesThe prototype was built up by hand by Gary Legare in Canada, as a sort ofjoint venture with QAC in Mojave. Then there was the demonstrator protoypethat was built in Mojave, which I think was N81QA (yellow), then I thinkthis one was further modified to become the Q-200 prototype (your photo) bybeefing up the firewall and replacing the GU with the LS1 canard. Others onthis list may know more precisely, but I think that is how it went down. Allof the regional dealers build a Q2 from a kit and used them asdemonstrators. Legare had the exclusive rights to market QAC products inCanada in exchange for his work on the project.

Who designedeach one?Just curious from a historical perspective.Mike (the airfoil guy)
