Default I'll tell you what we need for a sticky..

.. is a sticky that covers all the tips and tricks and recommendations etc. associated with getting into fast airplanes via the ARF Quickie 500 kit route. Primarily concerned with the Viper and the Predator, but also addressing other products like some of the high end quickie airframes, the Zoomer, that sort of stuff. Not prop jets, and not pattern planes with huge engines, but strictly Quickies and their very close relatives derivatives. And engine/exhaust/prop combos that work well. There is a pile of that info here in various threads, but a sticky would make for an easily found compendium of all this.

Whatchoo all say? [sm=thumbs_up.gif]??? [sm=thumbs_down.gif]???

I disagree. That forum is for Q500 racing. Quite a few folks come here without Q500's or racing in mind, heck they might not even know what a quickie is, but they are here to ask questions like "any good ideas how to get into fast aircraft easily/successfully?". Since the ARF quickies are such a good start, Q500 racing or no, they then become extreme-speed trainers.

Whatever.. if there ever was a sticky here I thought some common, practical information in a place that requires no cross-forum searching would be appropriate. And it would save the denizens of this forum the trouble of repeating the answers all the time.

Print out and place in the "reading area" Dave Norman's "Speed Secrets" series.

I could start one in the Q500 section, it would be good for racers and non-racers alike.

If I get some time, I'll start on it by pulling older posts pertaining to the viper. The Predator has been discontinued, so not sure it makes sense to include that.

Great idea.

Here it is. I'll add more as time allows, but for now, I'm going to lunch.

That was hard work

Nicely done. At least now we can point speed newbies to this thread.

I'm curious - what is the resistance to "stickies" in niche forums like this?

Probably just cause it fits better in the Q500 forum.

...management is not particularly fond of sticky threads, in fact
a while back they clicked a button, and every sticky thread at
RCU went adrift. I really don't know the exact reason, but my
best guess is they just don't want Forums cluttered with stickies
for clean housekeeping reasons.

FBD.
