Q2 Actual1 (2 min 1 sec)

Thought I would share a 25 year old design finally reaching fruition.

2 meter span.

The plug was meant to be used for multiple glider plan-forms,
and was originally one piece, used for molds for my "Q-Continuum" high performance 60" canard V.1 and V.2.

I then shortened, and cut that plug into 2 pieces, and made the split plates.
At the same time I fashioned a canard from foam core and balsa.

I sandwiched the main cores with obechi 20 years ago.

All the main parts survived 25 years of raising 3 kids!

I started flying other planes at Daves Beach about a year ago, got the "bug" again, and lucky stars provided a meeting with Mike Frandsen.

He MOST thankfully moved the design ahead with his knowledge of molds, and positive energy, and continued support!

The video is a mix of build log and flying.

There will be more of the "Q2-Actual" ( as opposed to "virtual"), and soon, the Original 60" Q-Continuum high performance canard V.3 with the new fuselage.

California Slopes are the Best in the West, and more video content from the West is coming.

Check out and see what the USA can advanced composite, carbon fiber pitcheron (twisty) "Jester" designed by Mike Frandsen.
