Hi Jeff,

Yes I was aware.

Which begs the question: What happened to the Q2 tooling?

I'm building the tooling for the Q1 as 4 main molds and a bunch of little
molds for details like spars, bulkheads and canopy frame. The fuselage is
split on a vertical plane, the wings are on top and bottom molds with
integral molds for the wheel pants. Despite the move towards the LS-1 wing
I'm favoring the GU for the Q1. I think I might have the only Q1, drawings
in 3D, now.

At this time, there is no intention to commercialize. I build very precise
carbon fiber microwave reflectors for compact antenna ranges with mirror
finishes. It was just a natural thing given my interest in the Q1 to build
this tooling. One part from a tool is not unusual although it will
certainly work for thousands.

It's a tedious process, isn't it? I'm enjoying every minute.

-Ben

Ben,

In my original post I specifically stated I was talking about the Q2 family
of aircraft, not the Quickie. It is a lot of work to build most any
airplane, especially if someone wants to do all the work. And as I am sure
you are well aware, anytime you deviate from the plans or well documented
modifications, the time required to complete the project will escalate.

You should be very proud of your accomplishments building an airplane from a
set of plans.

I've lofted a Q1 using the original plans and my own experience building
one.

Making molds for a carbon fiber version.

It was very difficult to get specs on the aircraft from the drawings. The
moldless technique for the Q1 worked very well. However, there is a weight
penalty using fiberglass and hand layup. Using a vacuum transfer technique
uses up a lot less epoxy for the same wet-out. Also there is no requirement
for all that body filler on the outside since the finish is taken from the
molds.

I've lofted a Q1 using the original plans and my own experience building
one.

Making molds for a carbon fiber version.

It was very difficult to get specs on the aircraft from the drawings. The
moldless technique for the Q1 worked very well. However, there is a weight
penalty using fiberglass and hand layup. Using a vacuum transfer technique
uses up a lot less epoxy for the same wet-out. Also there is no requirement
for all that body filler on the outside since the finish is taken from the
molds.

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.

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: Fuel filler problem and brake seals.

Ah, now I get it.
Originally I thought you meant that the header was essentially empty unless the main was full.
Thanks for the clarification, Larry.

Re: Quickies and Dragonflys "long post"

JohntenHave <Jtenhave@...>
 

Bloody hell Jim,

my bride is a saint but even she would lynch me! A Q1, a Long Eze and a
Helo meet all my requirements.....

Maybe I will be lucky enough to share my hangars with a Q2XX one day -
better finish building them first though!

By the way, I salute your enthusiasm. My comment was not intended as a
slight, we need more of it. It does much to inject the required
positivity, aircraft building can be a solitary pursuit. As for speed?
whatever blows your hair back, I guess....I remain entranced by being
able to fly into my friends back yard at 10 kts, 20 ft above the
ground, now that is cool....

Regards

John

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.
