Jay,

The prototype is shown in ground effect and the Tri-Q out, correct? Looking forward to how you found out the drag data for a Tri-Q!

Also sorry for fat-fingering your positive karma :(

Hi Lex,
Not to rule that out completely. Each plane flies differently. But the actual independent flight test data for N81QA (factory demonstrator) done in 1984 shows:
80 mph IAS: descent rate: 625 fpm
90 mph IAS: descent rate: 857 fpm
100 mph IAS: descent rate: 1111 fpm
110 mph IAS: descent rate: 1154 fpm

Good Catch! Here is the plot for the Q-200 out of ground effect. Similar, but not the same.
