Here is a Sport 500 Q500 airplane built from a set of sport Q500 plans. I have used a prototype 12% airfoil wing that was given to me. Instead of making another type of plane for it I decided to build the airplane it was meant for just to see what this wing is really meant to do. http://www.hippocketaeronautics.com/rc_sp_q500.htm
 
Flies very well for a sport plane and I like it as a pattern trainer. I fly a .25 on this airplane and it's handles very well.

Hi Bruce-
Nice plane you have, bet it flies nice. I still have one gas plane left a Spickler quickie 500. It has a tame OS40FP for power and it flies great. I have had the plane for about 18 years with many hours of flying on it. Haven't flown it much since I have made the switch to electric. Would like to scale it down a bit and make a 400 outrunner powered Depron version of it.

That's a fine looking Q500, I enjoy mine as a sport plane instead of a racer. I am still a intermediate R/C pilot and I don't want to push the flying limit much and smack up the only working RC plane in the stable. Scaled down I think it would be a great design for 400 electric. Look forward to your thoughts in the scale down when you get to it.

Thank You for the complement Bruce, I covered the plane using Monocote in Texas Lone star colors when I was in California before I came back to Texas. Was good for visibility/ orientation. I don't race anymore leave that to the younger guys gets pretty hairy racing with a flock of planes but sure gets you pumped up. The first Spickler Q500 I built had a OS Max 40FSR on it. The old FSR was a much stronger motor but the Q500 was a solid flying plane but much faster.

Your quickie will be a good plane to get some quality flying with and help you continue to build your RC flying skills.

Hope you plane serves you well.
