Yes Jeff it is one of the nicest looking hulls. At one time I heard that someone had a mould? We need a mould and drawings or pics of the hardware.

Peter,

That very pretty rounded fuselage would be hard to build without a mold.

Correcting last post Jeff I guess you are referring to the lack of any
drawings for the hardware bits or the hull and that is a problem. Maybe
someone will get a round tuit.

With all due respect, I would have to say the Dragonfly is not being
supported very well these days either. I know Jeff Letempt is on this list

and maybe he can shed some light on the subject. However, do compare the

Re: Quickies and Dragonflys "long post"

REBECCA SIMPSON
 

Brad,

Where are you located ? About a year ago, I was exactly in you shoes Q vs DF - Build vs buy etc. Spent a lot of time reading old posts from the Q and DF pages (learned alot) also emailed Jeff extensively and read Dave Morris's web page cover to cover and many others from both groups. After 100s of hrs of research, I started looking at projects for sale (huge variance in price and quality). Ended up with a once flying project that has been reassembled and with good weather this weekend should get the final sign off and some some intype experience so I can begin enjoying it.

Post of interest that helped me decide were ones pertaining to:
VGs and LS-1
Trike and taildraggers
Flight characteristics etc

To me the issues were safety, cost and timing and both groups will help you with all the details on either (90% you get overwhelmed with varied responses so you can appreaciate it from several views).

I am far from an expert but would be happy to share anything I have learned over the last year.

That's Lankford! with a K! You're gonna upset the Langfords if you don't
stop using their name so loosely.

By the way, the well built Q200 is a better airplane than I thought could be
in existence - Two people side by side with modest baggage, 180 MPH
everywhere, 6 GPH, small footprint and capable of sharing a hanger with other Qs,
D'Flys or Long Ezes.

Re: quickies at Oshkosh

Letempt, Jeffrey MR <jeffrey.letempt@...>
 

The Dragonfly rights were sold last year and the new owners are getting
ready to offer quick build kits "soon". The Dragonfly is a plans built
aircraft with the option of buying some pre-fab components or an complete
kit (soon). Plans are available for purchase today. The Dragonfly design
owners have a web site at www.dart-industries.com There are some errors on
their web site, they even show a couple pictures of Dave Dugas's, Ernest
Martin's, and Jim Patillo's Q's.....but they are trying.

I would say there is considerably more support available for the Dragonfly
than the Q2 family of aircraft. It is not practicable (possible?) for
anyone to build a Q2 from plans. There is a company who claims ownership of
the Dragonfly design and are wanting to make a go of it. With a set of
Dragonfly plans and support from the Dragonfly email list and Dragonfly
Builders and Flyers Newsletter you can scratch build a Dragonfly today from
plans. If the company goes out of business tomorrow you can still build
that same Dragonfly from those plans. The plans are not the most detailed
in the world, but an average builder with average skills can (has been done
hundreds of times) build a Dragonfly with the information provided.

The Dragonfly owners are planning on updating the plans. Dragonfly's have
been scratch built in less than 2 years (I would not say that is typical by
any means). My Dragonfly kit was built in about 20 months (not by me).
There are several "low cost" airplanes out there. I considered a wide
variety of airplanes before I bought my Dragonfly project. I thought it was
very hard to beat the bang for the buck and the safety of the Dragonfly.

I am not saying anything bad about the Q family of aircraft at all, I think
we are one big happy tandem wing family. I hope to see some of you guys at
the Spring Fling in a couple weeks.

whilst is is possible to find latent projects around,(and these are
often the lowest entry cost option) you might be better to consider
the dragonfly or the raptor as projects with more complete
documentation and or support. My understanding is that it is still
possible to obtain all the parts for Dragonfly without undue
difficulty. The decision you make now will knock on for several
years. May I also suggest that you do what ever is required to get a
ride or at least a sit in the project you intend to build. There is
nothing worse than the late realisation that your expectation did
not equal the reality. That said, there is nothing better than

Re: Quickies and Dragonflys "long post"

Jim Patillo
 

Brad,

While John Tenhave is correct in stating the decision you make now
can take several years to build, there's nothing faster or more fun
for the money than a Q200, which I doubt John has ever riden in.

I know I'll get hastled for this but, the fact of the matter is,
when a Quickie and Dragonfly event takes place almost anywhere, the
planes flying and giving rides are Q200's. Why is that?
I've been around the show circuit and Tandem Wing events for many
years and the last 5 with mine. I know what I'm saying to you is
true.

I'm really not knocking the Dragonfly, in fact they are neat
airplanes with large cabins, great headroom and docile
characteristics, but they don't haul as much, handle turbulence as
well, respond to stick commands as quickly or go near as fast.
That's what makes a Quickie a Quickie.

Given the fact Rex started Dragonfly the same time as QAC and out
sold Quickie in sheer numbers of kits(Quickie went out of business
in the early 80's), why aren't more of them showing up at shows or
Oshkosh than Quickies for example. There's no question the Dragonfly
had much better backing over the years (Quickie Factory help was
nonexistant). Despite that many sucecssful Q's flying. Just look at
the Builders List and compare.

Either way you cut it these planes take a long time to build. Which
airplane you pick is obviously is a matter of preference for your
skill and comfort level. Whichever catagory you fit into is the way
you should look at it. You might want to talk to Tim Iverson on the
Dragonfly List as he got his first ride in a Q200 a couple of weeks
ago. He should be able to make a good comparison.

Further if you are serious, you may want to search out one already
built and flying. I've directed friends that way over the last few
years and there's no question it can be a good way to go. Just ask
Phil Langford, Brad Moore and Geoff Rutledge. If on the other hand
you like building and want to spend several years doing so (mine
only took 19 years)go for it. Many of us started our kits when we
were young now were getting old. That doesn't leave many years for
flying.

I can honestly say that "reality has exceeded my dreams" but knowing
what I know now, I would have bought my Quickie if that option had
been available then! I hope this helps, By the way, I'm an idiot and
biased!

Jim Patillo 600 hours in N46JP Q200 and loving every minute of it.

possible to obtain all the parts for Dragonfly without undue
difficulty. The decision you make now will knock on for several
years. May I also suggest that you do what ever is required to get a
ride or at least a sit in the project you intend to build. There is
nothing worse than the late realisation that your expectation did
not equal the reality. That said, there is nothing better than
finding the reality exceeds the dream!

To Brad & all. I have requested a forum for Airventure but do not have a location or time yet. I'll keep you posted.

Haven't decided on a BBQ yet. Fellow QBA'er Mike Brown has had one in the past, so if he is listening maybe he can speak up on this topic. I'm camping as well, but have planned anything yet.

We didn't do so good at SnF this year, for the lack of good planning.
Maybe we can do better at OSH.

We'll be there camping, very near the main gate, with a 5th wheel trailer and 2
spaces. We certainly could host some sort of gathering with a lot of help.

Correcting last post Jeff I guess you are referring to the lack of any drawings for the hardware bits or the hull and that is a problem. Maybe someone will get a round tuit.

Jeff how so you say the Q cannot be built from plans? Is there another way ?

With all due respect, I would have to say the Dragonfly is not being
supported very well these days either. I know Jeff Letempt is on this list
and maybe he can shed some light on the subject. However, do compare the
Quickie to lots of alternatives as John says. Take your time and become
informed. You'll be happier in the end.

PS: I like my Q2 a lot! :)

Re: Stripped Sparkplug Hole

Dave,,,

use some spark plug anti seize to help stop plugs from striping out your plug holes....also , make sure the plug isn't too long....its carbon build up on the protruding threads that make it hard to remove plugs...
