Stop putting words in my mouth Jim. I never said shit about it handling like a 152. I said the landing speeds are not terribly far off. A direct result to the op's list of concerns.

Mathew,

I also agree with Paul and Sam. If you feel your plane is to fast on landing or that it will be unreliable flying over populated areas (I fly in SF and LA area) you may want to consider a different horse.

As far as Ryan’s statement about a Q landing like a 152 goes, its obvious he doesn’t fly a Q.

Regarding the BRS system on a Q, go ahead and mount one to your plane (costs more than you paid for the whole plane). Test,test,test, gather as much empirical evidence as possible and then return here and publish the results. We may show some interest then.

I can’t tell you how many times we’ve heard this stuff from people who never end up with a successful Q.

While this site is about Q’s, we set it up in 2000 to promote building and flying, not reinventing the plane. Experimentation is wonderful but not real helpful in getting pilots to finish their projects.

I fly my Q weekly as a commuter and “Baby” rarely lets me down.

Re: BRS Chute in a Q2

Science 101....  The Kinetic energy of an object goes up with the square of the velocity.  So a C150 at 35 mph is say 35 squared or 1225.  A Q2 at 70 mph is 4900 or 4 times more than a C150!

That's a huge difference.

There is no official document, but some have tried. I would reach out to the U.K. folks. Several Tri-Q's over there and the certification process is more rigorous. In the end, you will have to construct your own.

Glad you're still with us Charlie. Not sure how comfortable you are sharing that story but it's love to be it of you are. 

What's the issue with landing speed anyway?  It's basically the same as a 152. What plans is someone coming from that that's too fast?

Who would engineer this BRS? Jim Handbury died developing the SR22 system if I remember correct. What would you use as a test vehicle to assure you that the whole system works reliably? Just asking? 

Another factor is parachutes do not always work as planned. I experienced a structural flight vehicle failure and subsequent parachute failure. It was not a Q bird but still unexpected double failure.

Not sure why you say that as far as it being the wrong aircraft. There are a lot of factors but in general the lighter the aircraft the more realisitic a BRS is. I think the only good justification for a BRS is added safety for single engine airplanes flown in environments where an engine failure is critical. I would say for any cross country airplane that lands at speeds greater than say 60mph an engine failure is critical if you're missions take you, basically, outside of the Midwest.

I'm pretty sure the only place you could mount it would be aft of the rear wing, in the tail cone.  Sounds like a pretty adverse effect on W&B.

Anybody installed a BRS chute in there Q2? seems like it would add buckets of safety depending on your mission.

Obviously there are some structural and W&B concerns to look at but I am confident they can be analyzed and mitigated.


How this came up. . .I have been in talks with a fellow up in Alaska who is looking into buying the sister ship to the Q200 I recently (6 months ago) purchased and have put about 20 hours on.

He is located up in Alaska and would be looking to fly the Q200 he is looking up that way from the same airport as mine is at in Ohio. Shortly after moving out here I came to the realization that everywhere I have intentions of flying is very unsafe for the quickie in terms of making a safe landing following an engine failure For example. I'd like to be able to regularly fly to into John Wayne which includes flying over mountains and city. That's just an example but most of my missions with it will be flying over mountainous terrain with not particularly straight or level roads to follow and then over highly populated areas where highways are your best option. I mentioned to the guy in Alaska looking to buy the Q200 a similar concern -while he doesn't have to worry about the city areas almost anywhere he flies an engine failure would total the airplane and likely be a death sentence. In most airplanes you can slow down enough (ie - less than highway speeds) to make engine failures in these areas survivable.

Do you have pictures of the kit that I can look at?
Would be good to know how much of the work has been done.

Thanks,

Where are you located? 

I have a spare partly built Q200 kit in England bought from a Swissair engineer. 

Lots of good equipment with it and flying surfaces load tested to meet swiss requirement.

Hi Guys, I have plans for Quickie 1, purchased from quickheads, but was interested in 2 seating airplane.

Been searching for any Tri-Q/Q200 unfinished kit and since quickheads.com is down, it has become hard to even look for ads related to Quickies.

Let me know if anyone has a kit and wants to part with it.
