Guys,

With summer winding down, I am begining to pick back up on several buildiing projects, including the Q-Tee that I started last spring. About to glue in the firewall.

Has anybody found the need for any right thrust? I normally build some in, esp. on high wing models.

The Q-Tee uses a touch of right thrust. On the original RCM plans that were also used in the Airtronics kit, it stated to use one set of washers on the left lugs of the engine, for right thrust. You can build this into the firewall (say 2 degrees) or dial it in with washers under the engine mount/tank mount. Choice is yours.

Hi Guys! here a video of my Q-tee, this was his second flight... so almost maiden, well, if i builded this plane as my learning plane, everything could be easier, as some know, i learned alone, with a "pulga as my first plane, and a reduced Tomboy as a second, but this is much much easier to handle

Sometimes, the simplest solutions are the best for an old repaired airplane. Installing the TT GP-07 will require a new throttle servo, extending the needle valve and I don't have the proper threaded lock pin. A screw will work but will require trimming away a significant portion of the left cowl cheek, plus installing a fuel tank. Been vacillating for too long on this one.

Due to close fit and servos are already placed, I finally decided to complete this plane by installing a Norvel .061 Big Mig CL engine with the 1/2 oz (15 cc) CL tank, with pick-up tube relocated to the bottom for more complete fuel tank emptying. Previously I used this engine on a venerable Sure Flite 40" span foam Cessna 180 of the 1980s. Even with the Mecoa standard long glow plug head with additional cooling fins (Texaco?), it pulled that plane briskly along even in windy days. This Q-Tee is considerably lighter, and as a two channel it will really move along, with generous tail control area, should be a decent stunt plane.

For me, it is evil but Happy Halloween. My Q-Tee should be ready for flight in the next few days.

Well, I started scratch building a Q-Tee about 20 years ago, but never finished for one reason or another. I recently decided to finish it off, and power it with a Cox production engine Reedie. I also decided to upgrade a Cox Cadet radio to 2.4GHz to control it with.


I did a write-up over on CEF about it, so I won't take up space here repeating it. The thread over there on my build is:

That's a good looking model Mark.
The little Q-Tee is really a timeless favorite.
The cherry on the cake is the modified Cox transmitter, it never occured to me. I have a few period radios as well KRAFT, ACE, PROLINE, EK Logictrol, Orbit ............... hmmmmmm .......... food for thought.

I also I agree. I posted a positive comment to his build in the Cox Forums.

Visiting Mark's thread in CEF is certainly worthwhile. His transmitter conversion is innovative and a very interesting read.

His 2.4 GHz transmitter conversion of the Cox/Sanwa Cadet III has inspired me to consider resurrecting my Charlie's R/C (Cannon 810) transmitter.

I still have my Q-Tee, built late 70's early 80's. Has flown many many flights. first with .Cox .049 reed valve, then with Cox TD.power.

Unfortunately times change and I have converted it to electric power. Fly's absolutely fantastic on a stock GWS 350 gearbox set-up. 8x6 prop, 3S-1500 lipo. Has at least 2x the power of either Cox set-up, and now i have throttle control.
