That's a fairly rare bird; Revmaster Q2 with a smile inlet and the carbon spar LS canard. Do you happen to know the old N number?

Somewhere… probably old newsletters… someone used some “half circles” made of plywood and secured to the firewall. The half circles were large – extended all the way to ground whilst sitting on the gear. This allowed tipping the tail up and all the way over using the plywood as the pivot.  Secured well enough, it seemed like a good option for a one man operation (and a come-a-long or rope and pulley).  Probably not describing it very clearly….

Greetings,

 

I am new to the group, but I could use some wisdom.  My Q-2 is basically complete with wheels and brakes and all, but I need to work on the bottom.  The engine is off.  Any great ideas for how to turn the beast over without harming it?  I am pretty isolated out in the country, so plans that involve a dozen friends are not very practical.  I have some 2 X 4's screwed to the engine mount and was planning to roll it over on its nose, and I do have a forklift.  Thanks in advance.

I've done it myself with the tail section, engine & canopy all off and instro panel out. Be careful you don't sit it on your fuel vent box ram air tube, like I did if you have one.

John,

Your plan will work but I would suggest finding 2 or 3 people to help you flip it. That way you have much better control than strapping it to a forklift and possibly damaging the fiberglass.

Re: Im Sorry, I Crashed my Q2

Jim Patillo
 

Good morning Joe,

I'm really sorry to hear about your accident/crash. You were very lucky to walk away from it. The Quickie is fairly forgiving (as opposed to a metal airplane), unless it flips and burns. Every time we hear of a Q crash, all of us are concerned and we all feel the pain and are sickened, especially if you built it or had invested a lot of time rebuilding someone else's.

It looks like you didn't have a chance with that 75 hp engine at your altitude,heat and density. My calcs indicate you had at most 45-47 actual HP (maybe less) when you tried to lift off. I know flying out of Lake Tahoe (6,200') on a hot day, even with a pumped up 0200 makes for a lot longer take off roll and slow climb.

Over the years we've seen this happen to many times. I would suggest that a Q, no matter what the HP, is at risk with at density airports.       

Best regards,
Jim Patillo

I would suspect you were well down on power.  If your report saves one person from a similar or worse fate, it was not a complete loss. I could not help but reflect that your images were the perfect metaphor for 2020...

What are the plans going forward?

I spent so much time learning how to fly my Q2 (high speed taxis and all) but didn't learn proper performance taking off at 8000' density altitude.

The alternate airport I chose from the air had way too short of a runway (3400') when just 20 miles more was a strip of 9000' (I normally fly out of 3500' runway (at 839'), so the normal warning bells didn't sound). My planned destination had a 10,000' strip.

On take off, doing the normal hold the stick back until rotation, then release pressure at 70: nothing happened. 75mph, still on the ground. 50 foot wide runway and my hold the plane on the centerline was not good enough to brake and remain on the runway. At the end of the runway was a cliff. I ended up trying to push the plane into ground effect, like other planes but only succeeded in porpoising and rolling right. I leveled on the way down, impacted terrain, then off a bluff, landing in a Russian Olive tree (overlooking a river valley at U10).

I am lucky to be alive.

In hindsight I didn't need to learn mountain flying at the same time as learning to fly the Q2; flying her was like having fleeting time with a high school crush. The Q2 was like the perfect horse, you could direct her whichever direction you wanted her to go.
