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:
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:
|Q-200 KIT PRICES|
The Q-200 Kit is now available. Package 1A contains the material to construct the fuselage, pre-mounted canopy and raw materials. Package lB consists of wheels, tires, brakes, welded components. machined parts and other prefabricated parts to fabricate essentially the remainder of the airframe. Package 2 is the Continental 0-200 engine installation package. The prices are as follows:
Q-200 RETRO PACKAGE
This packagec includes the components required to convert from a Q2 Package 2 to a Q-200 Package 2. It consists of:
Continental mounting hardware, spinner kit, carh heat transfer valve, 5” propellor extension, prop washer, cowling, oil separator (a must), stainless steel carb heat muff, patented AR exhaust system, fiberglass inlet air and carburetor adapter pieces, elevator and aileron counterbalance arms, engine mounts, fuel pump, sheet metal baffling kit, liquid firewall, and appropriate hardware.
QAC is continuing our credit policy for returned Q2 components. See NL #20 or contact QAC for details.
BELLY BOARD — Q2/Q-200
The belly board is intended to be used for increased drag in the approach and landing phase.
The hoard is sized to provide increased drag and better over-the-nose visibility during approach while not preventing a go-around with the board deployed. Obviously, if the board is retracted after initiatng a go-around, climb performance will increase.
The board is positioned on the fuselage SO that very little trim change will be noticed when deploying or retracting.
The board has been found not to affect stall characteristics on our prototype N81 QA. This is because it adds only drag and not lift. Also, its sized and positioned so as not to blank the vertical fin or rudder.
The drag of the board has about the same effect on landing as a 10-15 mph headwind. It also allows a 5-10 mph fa.cter approach for improved visibility.
Deployment. We recommend that the board be deployed at a maximum speed of 110 knots (126 mph). After deployment, a maximum speed of 130 knots (150 mph)
should be observed. Below 110 knots opening and closing forces will be small enough that operation will be very easy and quick. With experience you should find that even Ofl short final, instant descent control and speed control will be available.
An introductory price of $175.00 is being offerred thru November 15, 1984. After that date the price will be $205.00. We are considering making this option standard in the near future. This option consists of a carbon-fiberglass sandwich board, operation handle, and associated hardware and drawings.
Testing on the new cooling air inlet for Q2s (Revmaster engine) is now complete and the drawings are ready. They will be included with any new orders.
If you wish to incorporate this change on your aircraft please send $10.00 to cover the cost of development, printing, postage, and handling.
As mentioned in Newsletter #23 QAC has developed vortex generators to help alleviate the trim change due to rain and bugs on the GU airfoil. Testing is now complete on the Q2.
The results show the following:
