Quark 2M - Back to cutting innocent trees!
« on: August 19, 2011, 15:47:22 PM »
Yesterday, received the prototype kits of the Quark, like the EPP one, but in wood, and with a 2m wingspan.

Quick build last night, a bit of time, and a fresh bottle of cyano, and here we go :



I can already see a few things to change, and also to make it much much lighter, but will see how it goes like this!
I have modified the plan already, I might put it for download after the first flight.

Salut mon Erwan  :D

Revenus de la peche ?  :D

Non, pas prevu, mais faisable avec un coup de scie, y'a la place pour  les servos  :D

No quadroflaps, but do-able, lots of room for the extra servo in the wing. the plan shows the quadro version  :D

Thanks both  :D

A bit of progress this week end, with a bit (lots!) of sanding and the start of the wings.
All that is an hour worth of work  :D









With the daughter  :D



A relatively big machine by the way. A tad over 2m but actually looks bigger. Might be due to the generous wing chord or the high fuselage  :?:





Left to do : wing sheeting, servos, covering! Not much, but I really like how this glider "feels" so far! (Autosatisfaction ON!  :D )

It is also possble to make this glider extra light, I have added a few options in the plan for a very lightweight version.

Thank you all  :D

Chris, no plan to kit that one yet, but might consider it, not sure if there is a demand for this kind of stuff. More and more people don't want to have to glue things together before being able to fly  :(

We'll see how that thing fly anyway  :D

On the build, not much done so far, kids are taking all my free time! A few yeards back, I could have finish this model in a day!   :(
I'll make some photos tonight of the wing sheeting.

Are there people that can do the cutting of the parts from a plan of yours then, Fred?
