Finally got my radio back. Surprisingly it worked after installing. Got the Q airworthy at 2:30 and gave it a test flight. 

53-deg, great vis, calm winds.  Went out to a local practice area and knocked off the rust with some airwork.  Back to the pattern for some crash and dashes and on to the hanger to wipe off the big grin.

Ya gotta love the Q.

Hi Kevin. Thx for the note.  You guys have had some tough wx,  so it appears from here. 

Fortunately, while my Q was down, Nancy would take me for a weekly ride.  Saves me a trip to the bar.

What's Jeff doing these days?

Wishing better wx for you.  J

Yes, AP is fun.  I use the heading and altitude controls when approaching an airport to comply with Appr Control directives.  That way I can put all of my attention to looking for traffic.  I also have a better chance of not being violated due to my erratic flying practices.

Congrats Jerry. Glad you got back “on the air” so you could get back “in the air”.  

I also got up there this afternoon for a nice jaunt around town. 30 minutes in the air and a good landing do wonders for the soul!

I flew the TriQ 200 yesterday!  Nice 55 degree day!  I worked on arresting the descent on final after setting up the speed (100 st mph) with the elevator.  Seems when I try to pull on the stick at the last minute to arrest descent it always slows me down (with the help of the MT electric prop) it gets slow and the nose gets to high and then it pays off with the nose gear getting punished by bouncing on the runway.  So the moral to the story for my Q is something I heard years ago “power is altitude and elevator is airspeed”.  Once close to the runway pull out the power.   I did that and the landing was fantastic!  Your mileage may vary.

So that was my 1st flight of 2021!

Changing the oil in ‘er next week getting ready for “Spring Fling”!  Of course there is a condition inspection due in May so hopefully SF can be early this year.

Congratulations Jerry.  Glad it all worked out.

 

I finally got my hangar shoveled out, but the taxiways are not plowed wide enough to get the Q to the runway yet.  Oh, and we're supposed to get another 2-3 inches of snow over the next two days.  I don't think I'll have my first Q flight of the year for a while!

Thx. Wow! You have it bad. Not to late to begin planning your 2022 first flight.  How about Q-skis?  Take care and stay safe. J

Congratulations Jerry.  Glad it all worked out.

I finally got my hangar shoveled out, but the taxiways are not plowed wide enough to get the Q to the runway yet.  Oh, and we're supposed to get another 2-3 inches of snow over the next two days.  I don't think I'll have my first Q flight of the year for a while!

Finally got my radio back. Surprisingly it worked after installing. Got the Q airworthy at 2:30 and gave it a test flight. 

53-deg, great vis, calm winds.  Went out to a local practice area and knocked off the rust with some airwork.  Back to the pattern for some crash and dashes and on to the hanger to wipe off the big grin.

Ya gotta love the Q.

Hi Jerry,
Glad to hear your Quickie is back in the air. 

We fired up Bob Farnam’s Q today. Getting it ready for Mike N. (new owner) to fly it over to Nevada. We’re now down to a couple non flying Q’s on the field. It’s getting 😞 lonely. 

Best,
Jim

Listers,
I am sending an update to the info below. I got a text from the owner of the Q2 below.
He has found the log books and the AW cert, along with some plans, etc.
I had told him that without those documents, the plane was a lump of parts.
With the AW cert, it is magically an airplane.
He is asking for an offer. Maybe begging for an offer. They would like to see it go to a good home, and someone get it flying again.
Could be a great opportunity for the right individual!
If interested let me know. Questions, ASK.

Listers,
This evening I went to look at a Q2 that is for sale.
The plane is located near Postville IA.
Some of the Spring Flingers will remember Keith Kerr.
He had a masive stroke in Feb and only lived a few days.
Now his family would like to sell his plane.
Q2 with revmaster. Was flying and I believe built in IA.
If interested let me know and I will get contact info to you.
They don’t want a fortune, just that it go to a good home and fly again.
Keith didn’t ever fly it, just worked toward that end. I don’t really know what he was working on, or changes he was making.
I hope someone will have interest, and I can help his family.
