Q-talk Newsletter
Jul/Aug 2012
Issue 154


Hey Member,
Well summer is starting to wind down, but there has certainly been a lot of great Q activity including lots of building and flying.


There have also been a lot of great "get togethers." These include a great turn-out at the QBA Forums at Oshkosh, a highly successful "Livermore" event, and even a few spontaneous fly-ins like this meet up between Sanjay Dhall and Paul Fischer at VPZ:


Impromptu Fly-in


I'm hopefull that the next newsletter will contain a report from Livermore and "Field of Dreams." For now, I want to send out a HUGE CONGRATS to Sam Hoskins for finsihing the AirVenture cup race with a blistering average speed of 218 mph! Way to go Sammy!


I received a couple of great article submissions for this issue and I am grateful, but I’ll need your continued support in order to keep publishing the newsletter. So keep those submissions coming!


I hope all of you are having a great summer, and I look forward to hearing from all of you. . . And yes. . . That means YOU! LOL!


Remember, "Together we build better planes" (and newsletters.)


Warm regards,
Dan Yager
QBA Editor

Great turn-out for the QBA forum hosted by Doug Humble. But perhaps EAA needs to adjust their priorities a bit? Check out Doug and Mike Bergen's report from the field!

Air and Space Update


The Quickie is still on display at the Smithsonian, but their sign hasn't been updated since my last visit 2 years ago. Maybe a petition will help?

Q2 Original Plans and Templates


I have several sets of "brand new" original paper plans for the Q2 kits in the online store. These came fresh from a ex-QAC dealer's hanger!
