Velocity, I believe, has not made any fiberglass parts for them nor has the tooling to do so.
Apart from Velocity I built two canard with carbon fiber tube spars and two sets of main wings.

By any chance did they ever build any Dragonfly wing or canard?
Scott was at Oshkosh this year with his dad and the velocity crew. I stopped by to tell him I finally finished my tri-q. I think I received one of the first two or three tri-q gear kits that he made while at QAC. I also have one of the early
“beefy” nose gears he made using the velocity tooling.
I retired in October 2016 but each time I am in Sebastian FL I stop by to see the Swings at Velocity. Scott doesn’t fly the Q200
much. His son Riley enjoys flying it.
I remember you from that visit. We had it in a T-hangar. I saw N1711Q last December all shiny polished in the big hangar on the east side of the airport.
I wouldn’t want to go back to work, but if I were, I’d go back to Velocity and the Swing family.

I think you took me down to the hanger to see it when you were wiring it. Is anybody still flying Scott's Q200?

This video was taken 10 years ago. Scott Swing years earlier had sold his Q200 to invest in Velocity. The second owner had a mishap and decided not to repair. N1711Q came back to Scott who did the fiberglass repairs. I did the
wiring and built the instrument panel. The video show the first start after repairs were made.
The video is available for your viewing pleasure at
I just rediscovered this video. I had forgotten it entirely.
