Issue 164

Hey Member,
This issue is being sent a few days late because I am just now starting to recover from a bad bout with the flu. I've heard people say that they "had a touch of the flu." For me it felt that "touch" involved being beaten with a baseball bat, and left for dead in some remote alley. Not fun!


A Touch of the Flu?


At any rate . . . and without further ado . . . Thanks again to everyone who contributed to this fine issue . . . as always . . . I simply couldn't keep this going without you!


I still look forward to hearing from each and every one of you, and I'm eager to hear what you've all been up to! So drop me a line any way you can get it to me! Spring has officially sprung in the Northern Hemisphere, so that means that lots of Q related events and activities should be ramping up as well. Please take a moment to let us all know what you've been up to . . . or what you're planning on being up to.


Remember, "Together we build better planes," and newsletters!


Warm regards,
Dan Yager

FAQ Update


The question people most often ask me is: "Can you build a Q2 Fuselage using nothing but the plans and templates as a guide?" I don't know YOU . . . but I know that it has been done before.
