Charles Belshe's beautiful Q2. Too bad we can't show you in color.
Don't try this on your GU airfoil! On a recent test of the new airfoil, we applied Elmer's glue mixed with cotton flox and food coloring so it would show up on film. It's .050-.070 thick and had no significant affect on flying characteristics.
|Q2 PACKAGING |
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.
Available options for the Revmaster 2100-DQ engine include:
Fred and Belle Baron recently flew their Q2 7,000 miles in 40 hours and on 170 gallons of fuel!
Don London's Q2 "Snow Bird."
Marvin Getten with his version of the forward mounted canopy.

|CONTINENTAL ENGINES WHERE DO I FIND THEM?|
One source is Trade a-Plane, Crossville, TN 38553.This is aviation’s biggest classified advertising source. It’s published three times a month, In the 3rd October, 1983 issue we found nine 0-200’s, two C-90’s, and eight C-85’s listed for sale.
Another interesting approach several builder’s are using is to buy Cessna 150’s, fly them while building, then use the engine for their Q-200 project and sell the airframe for parts,
