This months aircraft is the Quickie, Q2 & Q200.
One of my EAA chapter 203 friends & former co-worker Kevin Sheely built one and has been flying it for years. The craftsmanship is immaculate and many of the design features are very unique. You can read more about his aircraft on the chapter 203 web site, formatting of this page you have to scroll about half way down before it starts.
I’ve also seen a single seat version built and flown buy a very thin man under the age of 20.
Surprisingly the EAA web site does not have a page dedicated to the Quickie?
The original Quickie was designed by Burt Rutan in the 70’s. Gene Sheehan & Tom Jewett created a 2 seat-er based on Rutan’s work. The original company is gone however quick heads has taken up the support for the aircraft.
The aircraft is very compact (like Pitts Special compact) while being very fast and fuel efficient.
You can still buy plans for both the single seat & 2 seat versions on the site at low cost. The kit version had a pre-molded fuselage, with plans its built from templates. Quickheads also offers CNC cut foam cores and hardware packages.
Now for some videos:
There are some RC options as well for the Quickie.
