That's crazy.  It looks like a T-38 on the ground and an insect in the air.

Like shoes, cockpits come in all sizes.  Some wore blisters, others would accommodate inserts.

A good story of adapting your environment to fit you, then you adapting to fit your environment, Jerry. How in the world did you ever fit into those air force shoeboxes???

Somewhere around here I have a tape of a telephone conversation I had with Tom Jewett over how to get my 6’ 6” self into the cockpit he had advertised as accepting two people 6’8”, 250lbs ea.  Being neither, I still couldn’t get into it.  With his generous advice, I was able to square off the canopy, add 2” to the turtleback height, slip the base of the seat toward the seat tank, and hoist my rudder pedals off of the canard.  Now it only takes a shoehorn to get in, instead of a compactor.  Fortunately as time as passed, I have misplaced 2.25” in height.  Life is good.

I met Tom Jewett when I got a ride in the factory Q2 with Revemaster engine about a year before he died in "Big Bird"'off the end of the runway in Mojave. He was the brains behind QAC and one hell of a nice guy! If he hadn't died Quickie Aircraft might have survived.

Gene was a pain in the ass and hard to deal with. It was no surprise when QAC went down the tubes, even though he had Scott Swing and his dad working for him.

I am going to be in Houston in a few weeks.. Would it be possible to visit the Rutan Flying Experience Museum? Has anyone done this previously?

Thanks.

As I recall/understand it, Marc Waddelow passed away in his kitchen when he discharged a halon fire extinguisher in a confined place. Really sad, he was a smart young man.
 
I understand that Sheehan is still alive and kicking in Mojave. Tom Jewett was killed in Big Bird, a non-Quickie type aircraft that he was hoping to fly around the world in. It broke up in flight.

Does anyone have the drawings, construction info for the Waddelow wings, and canard? I am rebuilding a damaged Q-200, changing to Tri-Q, and am considering the Waddelow wings.

Kris, My Q2 is just that an original Q2 with the GU canard and VW power. The advantage of the belly board is the steeper approach, I didn't mind slipping the plane in as it was how I was taught and how I fly the Pitts. What it has offered was the ability to get stopped on shorter runways and in the days before the internet I was flying out of a grass field with trees on one end and a big hill on the other it did make for a little less work and let me stay ahead of the power curve on the VW.

Not to be contrary Mike but I regularly slip my Q200 on final if I'm high and fast. It's like an elevator ride and totally controllable. I just slip it with the nose deck a little high and round it out befoiore touch down.

I've entered base to final many times at 150k close up and had no issues.


As I said in a previous post, I notice the speed brake really helps to shorten roll outs.

I found that slipping a Q200 was very inneffective.  But pulling up into a stall really increases the drag and looses altitude fast!  So now if I'm high and fast, I pull up to stall or near stall.
Mike Q200 N3QP  No belly board but would like to have one.

In the case of my speed brake I used the park brake handle from a MG Midget with a rod to a simple bell crank. this option gave me steps just like the Johnson Bar in Pipers and old Cessna's. It was no issue to deploy and really didn't take any effort.

If you have a front hinged belly board will it not require a more substantial operating system ?
My TriQ had the belly board bolted shut , which has now been reinstated to the rear hinge version as per plan, which I mused must be the lightest version isn't it ? It uses the airflow to open so no springs or bellcranks needed.

My Velocity has a small 12 volt linear actuator for the speed brake and it is hinged from the front side. Velocity sells these. I am planning to hinge mine from the front and use the same set up as my Velocity. Very easy set up and just requires a  toggle switch for up and down.
