It is important for builders to inventory the contents of all shipments within 30 days— from receipt— and to report all backorders and discrepancies to QAC in writing immediately.
As of April 1,1982, Q2 Package I was broken down into two smaller packages, called Package 1A and Package lB. The price breakdown will be as follows:
A builder electing to purchase Package 1A and Package lB and Package 2 together will save $300.00 at the $8500.00 combined price. The price for a complete kit purchased in the most economical manner is $l1,895.00 complete.
Package 1A includes materials to construct the basic fuselage, bulkheads, consoles, etc., and to mount, and hinge the canopy. Package 1B includes the remaining materials to fabricate essentially the remainder of the airframe. Package 2 is an engine installation, instrument, and miscellaneous materials package. Package 3 is the Revmaster 2100-DQ engine.
All packing of Package 1A will be done at QAC; we presently have Package lA in stock and ready for immediate delivery. Backlogs the other packages, except the engine, is 30 days. Orders on the Revmaster 2100-DQ engine will be filled in 60-90 days.
Many dealers have complete Q2 Kits in stock, please call your local dealer for availability.

NEW CANARD Q2:
Deliveries have begun on the new canard spars and control system parts. Delays were due to our changing suppliers in midstream. That old demon in aircraft sprung up: Product liability.
Everyone who has ordered should have received the plans by now. If you have not, call us immediately. Production rate is 5 per day and will soon jump to 10 per day when our second mandral comes on line. We estimate the current backlog to be 45 days for new orders. As long as the volume remains high for retro orders, we can maintain the price at $600.00.
Revmaster has installed the Turbo Engine on their Q2 and have just begun flight test. If all goes well, the Turbo Q2 will be on display at Oshkosh. Due to the extra weight of this conversion on the nose, the new canard is mandatory. Price has not been set at this time.
