About this Plan

QAC Quickie - Sport scale model for .40 engines.

Quote: - "Ray Jenning's exciting sport scale .40 powered Quickie is a real eye grabber wherever it appears at a flying field... I incorporated the lessons learned from my first effort plus other changes based on additional information I had managed to gather on the real thing. This time everything turned out exactly right and the flight performance was outstanding. It was fast and smooth, capable of basic aerobatics and had ultra safe low speed handling and characteristics. Quickie has exceeded all my expectations and I can certainly recommend it to those looking for something different..."

I'm not sure how we missed adding this one ages ago. Well, it's here now.

Dear Outerzone-Team - To your new plan, the QAC-Quickie, I send you some photos from mine [more pics 003, 004] and CAD-file with helpful changes (wing-ribs with stands). The model flies very well and looks very crazy in the sky :) By the way: the CG of the Quickie has to be 1/2' further away the leading edge, then it's perfect. Keep it up and kind regards from Switzerland.

I scratch built a 1/4 scale (51in span) Quickie back in the '70s from an Aeromodeller scale drawing, very detailed with a flat twin glow engine (I can't remember what one). It flew superbly and stunted well. It was on display at the model engineer exhibition one year and won many prizes. Oh yes, forgot to mention it was a control line model!

I was interested in Simon's comments about his version of the Quickie. Glad to hear he enjoyed building and flying it. The balance point shown on the plan is what I used for many years of flying and I found it the best for all round handling. Looks like slightly further forward is fine also.

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.


This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
