Sorry to hear about that Jon.  Not sure if it helps at all but I'll note that those connections - at least the people connections - don't have to be lost.  I haven't had a Q in a decade but many of the Q-folk, some of which I've known for thirty-plus years, remain VERY important to me (even though I'm a terrible communicator and horrible at staying in touch :-(). That said, I do occasionally see them pointing and laughing at my odd looking airplane. My point is - stay in touch - friendships don't have to end with the sale of an airplane.

Hi Jim,

 Osh 95 I wasn't even going to have my airplane judged. I was just happy to have a flying airplane. Some of the Quickie guys kept twisting my arm to get it judged. I was rather surprised by the outcome. To answer your question, the Cozy won't have all the additional hours invested to get it to that level, I am trying to get the Cozy done before I get to old to fly it.

Kevin thanks again for hosting and all you do. For those of you that have never been to Decorah airport, the airport manager and his wife, Mike and Ava go out of there way to support the fly in. This airport rates really high on my list I wish there were more like it.

Jon, I respect you for your decision.  It is not an easy choice to make but it is an incredibly important one.  As far as the quote I took from your email, I really like it in the positive way it waseryv phrased following your statement of stepping away from the project being seen as a success.  I mean, not many people on this rock can say, "I did fly at least as far as the Wright brothers..." so that alone is success on top off all the knowledge you also walk away with.

Hi Corbin,

 

A couple of thoughts. There appear to be square patches on both the fuselage and the canard at the root on both sided of the plane. This is the location of the carbon fiber spar and could spell trouble. I would query the seller as to what was done there. Perhaps a repair after a huge flex or even failure of the spar on both sides?  Also on the left side canard, top surface, the sanding has gone through the weave. At least one, maybe two plies are compromised. This will need to be repaired to be airworthy. It looks like there are two Q’s there. The one that you are looking at is set up for the revmaster engine. Firewall will need to be modified to accommodate the O-200. Maybe the canard from the other one is available? Can’t see it from the views you sent. Also, beware of UV damage if these have been sitting outside for a long time (looks like they have).

Good morning all,

I have attached the only photos I have for reference.  I am picking this project up by end of the month and will get all the details once I get it back to my hangar.  It is supposed to have everything except an engine and avionics and the tail "needs work".  I will either keep for parts or bundle the avionics that I am taking out of my plane now and sell it to anyone wanting to take on a project.  

Looks to be the LS1 wing as well as the forward sliding canopy.  I am not yet sure of the condition of the canopy.

Not sure what price to put on this yet as I need to see the condition, inventory parts, complete the purchase, and then value my avionics that I will bundle it with.  I maybe even have my panel guy cut a panel for it while he is doing mine.

I just wanted to get the word out if someone is interested and wants to be updated as I acquire it and get it home to Dallas.

With heavy heart I'm selling my project #Tri-Q N12XD;  It is a hard decision to sell my project, not so much for the loss of the object but for the loss of  all the connections it represents. After giving it, what I feel, was  a fair attempt I have to admit this is not the right airplane for me at this time in my life.  On my second, "First Flight" attempt I came up short as a pilot and damaged my Corvair powered TriQ.  On takeoff I wasn't able to maintain flight and bounced on the runway and broke the front landing gear off.  The bottom of the cowl is gone and the Warp Drove propeller was ground down to a nub.  There is no other apparent damage but It will be up to the next owner to determine the integrity of the structure. I plan to sell the fuselage and engine separately.  It will be up to the new owner to get it re-certified as a "Parts Built" project.  I have all the documentation and it will go with the project.  Please contact me through the list.
It has been 18 good years of building and I cherish the time I spent on this  and growing as a person.  I especially value the great friends I have made during the process and I hope that you all know how much I appreciate your efforts to make my journey a success. Without your help and support the end of this tale may have been very different.  What the Q group members do is invaluable.  Thank you all.
 I have reflected long and hard about this and choose to see my stepping away from this project as a success on more levels than it was a failure.  I did fly at least as far as the Wright brothers and I came away without physical harm (just my pride took a hit) One of the biggest lessons I will offer to anyone beginning the same journey is to listen to the guys who have done it and follow their advise.  Their knowledge is based on experience and is invaluable.

Thanks, Jay.  This is very helpful information and, to be honest, I am halfway looking for a reason not to go to the trouble of "rescuing" this Q.  Therefore, any helpful information like yours below helps me make the decision to walk away.  I plan on talking with the owner again this week for questions and clarification on history and condition before I even think about going to see it.

The one in the back he is keeping and plans on completing by next year.  He gave up on trying to do two of them.

Hi Corbin,

 

A couple of thoughts. There appear to be square patches on both the fuselage and the canard at the root on both sided of the plane. This is the location of the carbon fiber spar and could spell trouble. I would query the seller as to what was done there. Perhaps a repair after a huge flex or even failure of the spar on both sides?  Also on the left side canard, top surface, the sanding has gone through the weave. At least one, maybe two plies are compromised. This will need to be repaired to be airworthy. It looks like there are two Q’s there. The one that you are looking at is set up for the revmaster engine. Firewall will need to be modified to accommodate the O-200. Maybe the canard from the other one is available? Can’t see it from the views you sent. Also, beware of UV damage if these have been sitting outside for a long time (looks like they have).

 

Cheers,

Jay

Good morning all,

I have attached the only photos I have for reference.  I am picking this project up by end of the month and will get all the details once I get it back to my hangar.  It is supposed to have everything except an engine and avionics and the tail "needs work".  I will either keep for parts or bundle the avionics that I am taking out of my plane now and sell it to anyone wanting to take on a project.  

Looks to be the LS1 wing as well as the forward sliding canopy.  I am not yet sure of the condition of the canopy.

Not sure what price to put on this yet as I need to see the condition, inventory parts, complete the purchase, and then value my avionics that I will bundle it with.  I maybe even have my panel guy cut a panel for it while he is doing mine.

I just wanted to get the word out if someone is interested and wants to be updated as I acquire it and get it home to Dallas.

Re: For sale #Tri-Q

Sorry to hear about the fate of your plane, Jon. So glad you were not hurt. The decision you made is a hard one, but the right one for you because you have thought it through. No shame in that. Keep in touch and I can say from experience, no one in this group is any less friendly if you fly your spam can into the fly-ins. Did it for years and everyone was great. Best to you and your family.

 

Cheers,

Jay

With heavy heart I'm selling my project #Tri-Q N12XD;  It is a hard decision to sell my project, not so much for the loss of the object but for the loss of  all the connections it represents. After giving it, what I feel, was  a fair attempt I have to admit this is not the right airplane for me at this time in my life.  On my second, "First Flight" attempt I came up short as a pilot and damaged my Corvair powered TriQ.  On takeoff I wasn't able to maintain flight and bounced on the runway and broke the front landing gear off.  The bottom of the cowl is gone and the Warp Drove propeller was ground down to a nub.  There is no other apparent damage but It will be up to the next owner to determine the integrity of the structure. I plan to sell the fuselage and engine separately.  It will be up to the new owner to get it re-certified as a "Parts Built" project.  I have all the documentation and it will go with the project.  Please contact me through the list.
It has been 18 good years of building and I cherish the time I spent on this  and growing as a person.  I especially value the great friends I have made during the process and I hope that you all know how much I appreciate your efforts to make my journey a success. Without your help and support the end of this tale may have been very different.  What the Q group members do is invaluable.  Thank you all.
