Started building this Frank Knoll One Design October 2011, finished October 2022, not bad!

Say Joe was looking to comment on an old build but can't seem to find it when a click the Forums button. Are they still available?

Smokin Joe No, I don't know what happened to them. It costs Almost $400 a year to keep the site running and since there isn't much interest and hardly anyone on here anymore, I just might let it got. I spent $3,000 for a guy to design this years ago thinking that all kinds of clubs and flyboys would have a nice forum, but I guess this hobby is loosing lots of people just like the fields and clubs around...

Let's just say the maiden didn't very well. The builder programmed the stabilizer receiver switch backwards!!!! What a dummy. I will build it back however!

Smokin Joe What a hobby! all that work and one simple mistake! That's the fun of it. I just got my cataract surgery. $,4000.00 and now I can see with 20/20 clear vision. Only problem now is that I found out I have double vision. Came back from Eye Doctor and said, I spent 4k to find out I got double Vision? He said yep! Now I can see two perfectlly clear airplanes instead of one blurry one! I asked him... Show more 1 month ago

Designed & made an alum. upgrade strut for the QQ out of 1/8 bar stock, & milled it down to 3/32.. Bends & angles were pretty tricky.. It also has about an inch more ground clearance now,, & is ''way'' stouter than the stock wire gear .. Think the stock strut design was definitely figured to short .. Also only added about 35g... Needed the extra nose weight anyways.... I

QQ Extra 300 V1 ''blue'' scheme.

''Happy 4th everyone'' !!!!

I74 Down loaded this with the Aura 8 Gyro system ect. on my sim today,, & all I gott'a say is ''wow''... Never flew with that stuff before, other than my new little Citation EDF jet ..I always thought it was like ''cheating'',, especially a 3-D plane. LOL .. It sure smooths maneuver's out though,, & gives lot's more confidence,, especially when like hovering ect. close to the ground. 5 months ago

This post is going to be some extended reading, so it will be broken up into multiple sections,,, due to limited word space per post.
Anyways,, We are getting closer everyday on our ''still'' going full time RV,, here in the near future... Have been down sizing & reconfiguring my fleet of planes,, & currently have 2 left that are up for sale,, because they don't break down good enough for full time RV.

I74 ''2' .. Have been looking @ top shelf mid size 3D planes to replace my S-bach, that the wings don't come off of unfortunately,, & got a reply the other day from a wanted ad on RCG,, with a Guy from GA. that has a QQ Extra 300 - NIB,,in the ''blue'' V1 discontinued scheme that I have been ''specifically'' looking for... This plane is rated pretty much as the best EPO- carbon/ply layup 3-D plane... Show more 5 months ago
