Default Unknown Quickie Plane

I got this Quickie type plane in trade.
If you know what it is let me know.
It came with a JETTSS.40
I put the radio into it last night...

The fuse looks like a Spickler Quickee 500, but the rudder is different. The Spickler wing had landing gear mounted in the wing.... I suspect this is a airframe from different designs.

Yes, that would account for the tail feathers being different than the old Spickler. I believe it is a Dodger.

The wheels look like they are set directly under the CG.......is that so you can use the muffler like a nosewheel when landing?

that's how all quickies place their gear.... it helps to minimize bouncing the landing..... and that's 100% a doddger. a guy in our club does pretty damn good with those things.

The gear does tuck back a little, but it is not really very much and that is a 10" chord wing. I'll check the plans and see what the relationship is.



CP, if you remember the bare wood quickie fuselage I pictured maybe a year ago, on the nose was an FIRE ST X .45 and pipe because I thought it looked cool but I wish it was an X .40 actually. That was/is a Doddger fuselage. That thing needs about #$%# six hours of work to complete at most. I was just fondling it a few minutes ago in fact, thinking about this thread on Doddgers, and wondering if I should cut an 8% speed airfoil wing, move the firewall back a ways and fit a rear exhaust .65 in it for giggles. Brilliant idea, moron, go to sleep. It would be a lot of fun with that ST .45 on it actually, probably something like a 115 mph sport hot rod I'd guess.



*** is going on with stupid RCU [:@]? All kinds of people are having posting fits.

Yep, it's a Doddger for sure! Here's a couple of pictures of mine...

I've had three or four of the doddgers, still very strong in the beginners class of quickie. The way I fly it really dosn't make much difference what quickie I use, I stiil suck. But I have fun .

Having fun is #1.

Igot to fly my dodger today The JETT SS40 really screamed.
Only one flight since one of the wheel came off its brass hub.
the 4 oz tank made for a short trim in flight, but it was still a blast.

this plane may not be current or competitive...but still gave 100+ mph performance!

yep even deadstick, out of fuel landing, it did sail on down the runway.

I'll bet you had fun, but I can't figure out why you didn't find the wheel collar so you could fly some more?
