Does anyone in the group live near Duluth, MN

I am new to the group and was wondering if anyone lives near Duluth,
MN or even in Minnesota?

Re: Q-200 Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004

You are correct, the aircraft.cfg file for this model is an almost
exact duplicate of the Cessna 182 aircraft.cfg file which means it
is exhibiting the characteristics of the Cessna 182. I also found
another quirky behaviour upon landing, I ended up doing a belly skid
because sometime during my flight I may have inadvertently hit
the "G" key and I had no landing gear on touchdown even though the
model has fixed gear. The model gear was through the runway
pavement and only when I hit the "G" key again, did my Q200 rise out
of the pavement on its wheels. Someone who knows enough about the
flight characteristics of the craft needs to go into the
aircraft.cfg file and update it so it works correctly and then send
it to the rest of us who don't have that information so we can enjoy
the closest approximation of the flight characteristics of the craft
in the simulator. When Larry Kellogg took me on a flight in his
Q200 two Saturdays ago at KPVU, we were about running over Cessnas
ahead of us and he had to execute "S" turns to stay behind them in
the pattern. I certainly want to simulate that and not be stuck
with a volkswagen bug performance in a maserati craft.

You might need to update to the 2004 Flight Simulator.

The more I learn about the Q200 the more I doubt the
accuracy of this plane in the flight simulator.

Ross,

I live in Golden Valley, MN. That's the first ring suburb to the west of
downtown MPLS, off HWY 55. I'm working on a TriQ-Vair. Give me a call if
you're going to be in the cities.

Sorry James,

Geoff did come back late that same afternoon. He determined he had a
gauge or electrical failure.

He does not answer his telephones. Can someone in LVK verify that
his

Ron,
I just moved the folders into the right places and it works now. I had to move the Q and tri Q folders to the airplanes folder then the panel to panel etc and it brings it up. The 1st time trough it looks like the default plane but when I tell it to fly and go back through it all looks right.

Thanks Again,
Tad

I have always wanted to build a Long-EZ but had never flown in one. I
just got Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 and down loaded the Long E-Z
and the Quickie Q200. If this is anything close to real life I would
rather build the Q200. Has anyone tried this flight simulator?

I have been looking online at some of the Q200 for sale and I am
unsure about how to tell if it was built correctly. How can you tell
if it was built to specification? I worry about someone not putting
the correct number of layers, sanding through some of them,
delaminating, etc. What can I look for to be sure it was built to
specification? One of the Q200's I was looking at is painted.

Re: New Member and a Question

Robert,
I had a similar plan last year - ended up buying a project and renting a 172 for the lessons.
Spent a lot of time looking for a good affordable cessna - Found a good project so I bought it and just rented the cessna for lessons. Lessons, and completed project with a rebuilt to new c90-12F for less than the 152's I was looking at. The project was once flying and I have it air worthy and in inspection/test flights in less than 8 months.

Suggestions:
Get a pre - med exam 1st and make sure that you will get the physical. If you get turned down you are done. My Dr was a pilot and actually said that he would give me the physical and if I failed would just write it up as annual- I passed so he did the full.

Take lessons at a small town airport (cheaper, friendlier and committed) I took mine at Purdue and spent an extra thousand or more because they changed my instructor 4 times and you have to get the sign off from each (like taking many check rides)

The time & money you loose hunting down a good cessna that would be a good time builder/trainer that will resell quickly could be the time it took to get lessons and locate the long term plane. ( I looked at several - days drive - expenses etc )

Make sure you have a nearby hanger and a back up before you get a plane. I had a verbal commitment at the local airport and bout a plane 3 weeks later and ended up rebuilding it at my vacation home 300 miles away and then hauling it closer to home (another $500 over the $1000 delivery fee). It is now in a hanger 80 miles from home but I moved from 7th to 1st on the wait list at the airport near work (30 miles)

I bought the plane - then took lesson and rebuilt concurrently - having read many cases of 17 year projects I wanted to commit and follow through before the life events took over and all was gone. It took about 6 months for the family to loose their enthusiasm and support and that really slows down progress..

Check the old posts here and on the dragonfly list . You can see a lot of good, bad and ugly from other builders or flyers. Tail dragger vs trike, GU vs LS1, vortex generators etc...
Good Luck.

Plan would be to buy a 150/152/172, learn to fly and get a license,
sell the Cessna and buy a canard.

I've been looking at the Q-200, Tri-Q200, and Cozy. Mission is to fly
my wife and me (5'6, 180' and 5'2, 100') to see the grand kids four
times a year (1,000 miles one way). Speed is more important than
economy. There is also a restaurant we like a lot (Gaston's) with a
3,000' grass field that we'd like to fly into once a month for dinner.
It's about 30 miles from Calico Rock.

There is an asphalt strip in Calico Rock that I could use if grass
strips and these planes are incompatible.

Anyone have any insight for me on Q-200 vs. Tri-Q vs. Cozy? Also,
critique my plan please! Thanks in advance.


I'll take a stab at this. Probably get flamed good-n-plenty. If you are going into a grass strip, I don't think you want a canard. By nature, they land fast and most have pretty small tires. Some guys fly them out of grass strips but they're mostly pavement planes. If you plan on long trips with two people with a fair load of luggage, and are set on a canard, I'd go with a Cozy. This is simply a matter of horsepower. Most Cozy's have a 160 in them and will pick up a bigger load. It's a bigger plane with more motor, simple as that. Your wife and you are fairly small so you might get along okay with a Q-200. In my limited experience flying them both, the Cozy is a more stable but the Q is more fun to fly. Fun to fly is relative. Both of them are worlds apart from a Cessna. I'd learn to fly in a Cessna or a Cherokee and mooch rides in the canard types you're interested in and then get serious about buying one. Don't ever be afraid to go up and ask for a ride in any canard.
Most are flown by nice guys that would just love to give you a ride. Fly in more than one of each type, they're all a little different. My qualifications for this one data point of pure opinion are these. I've built and flown a Q-1 and a Vari-eze. Ridden in Q-200's and Dragon-fly's. Helped to build two RV's and flown them. I hate to say it but they are better grass airplanes. (Lot's more money, too) Learn to fly first and fly every type you get a chance at and enjoy them all.
