|QUICKIE NEW CANARD: |
Carbon fiber spars similar to the Q2 Q-200’s have been fabricated for the Quickie. As our prototype, N77Q, has been tied up with engine testing, one of our dealers has agreed to construct and test a canard for his Quickie.
Recent data obtained from NASA makes us very confident that we will see some improvement in stall speed and complete elimination of trim changes due to rain or other leading edge contamination.
PINT SIZE LIQUID FIREWALL:
Liquid firewall is now available in pint kits for Quickie Builders. Price: $53.00.

For those builders who would like a true climb propeller for the first few flights, rather than the cruise propeller provided with the kits, we have created a 42” diameter, 27” pitch climb propeller and will make it available as follows: with a deposit by the builder of $150.00, we will send the special prop to the builder for his initial flights. When he returns the prop to us in good shape, prepaid freight, we will return his complete deposit.

Citroen Engine Testng is continuing at a slow pace. A number of changes have been made in the ignition system, camshaft and manifolding. Recent dyno tests show we were flying with about 26 hp instead of 31 as we had originally thought. This was due to a change made in the intake manifold to simplify the cowling installation. Another configuration has been fabricated and dynoed and we should be flying again shortly. Throughout our testing we have been impressed with this engine. It is smooth, powerful and we hope, reliable. It has potential for turbocharging and Revmaster has fabricated it with provisions for an oil controlled propellor.
