That’s clever, Dave!

Looks like the shaft broke off.  There is not enough sticking out to put a knob on.  You'll have to find a new shaft.  Take it apart and see what it looks like.  The trim lock is a nice thing to have on a LS1 canard.  Not sure about your GU canard...

Re: Watch “Dr. Steve’s first solo flight in his Q2 - 1989” on Vimeo

Brad Baerg
 

Dr. Steve was a hanger partner of mine for many years, and was a great guy. He was a low time pilot on Cesnas before flying the Q and eventually got very good at short field landings.

Steve loved to fly and made many cross country trips from his home base in Abbotsford B.C. to places like Reno, Vegas, Oshgosh ( 3 times ) and Whitehourse in the Yucon Terratories.

Steve eventually switched to a Jabaru 6 cyl engine after having 3 engine bloc failers with the Revmaster.

Steve was a good friend, and still miss him

My first flight was nothing like this and I’m sure many others experienced the same as me on their first flight, as it was a non event.

Apparently Steve didn’t have much if any complex or fast slick airplane time. As the old timers on this list know, it’s all about controlling speed and not over controlling the plane. 
Every time he was too high and too fast and out of control. I’m just glad he finally got it and went on to put all those hours on his Q which I don’t believe has been matched to this day. I think Rene knew him well. He flew in the tribute flight to Steve.

That electric Q1 isn't a Q1, exactly. It's from Quickie founder Gene Sheehan and is a completely new design, all carbon fiber, and actually a bit smaller than a Q1. I doubt that it is for sale. MY Q1 is definitely not for sale.

There was a guy working on installing an electric motor in a Q1 (I think it was a university project) a few years ago. He had it in Tehachapi. Not sure if that was ever finished and/or is still there. Maybe that became the ill-fated twin jet Q1 at Mojave?  Maybe Mathew Curcio has some more updated news on whether that project may be available.

My son is currently looking for a Q1 that is flying or close to it and needs some work.  He would like it for some testing of a new engine being developed locally.

 

Anyone have one they would let go reasonable?

 

Thanks
