Default My 1st QHOR-there are no words to describe it

I know this has been pounded into the ground by everyone else but i am in tears here. I can't describe what FUN i had with this QHOR. At the end of the first flight and all of the second flight i was doing harriers all over the place and let me tell you.......

THIS THING IS A HOVERING MACHINE.

My god i think my 4 year old could do it. Well maybe his thumbs aren't up there with mine yet but god what a BLAST!

My wing is 26"w x 20"L with 2" ailerons. The tail is normal size except i made the rudder and elevator 3"

The power to this baby is a Saito 72. Hover is a smidge above idle. YeeeeeeeeeeHaaaaaaaaa

Anyhow, anyone reading this that has been thinking about making one, DO IT NOW. You wont regret it.

Gotta go, going back to the field for more fun this afternoon

I guess no one shares my enjoyment of this airplane. I thought for sure someone out there was flying these things.

Oh well........

Happy flying everyone

I DO, I Do!!!!! I'm going broke buying more fuel every time I head for the field!...It's the kind of plane you cant wait to top off and restart and just keep flying-flying-flying!

same here. I can't get enough of mine. Its kinda pitiful when i go to load my truck up, and throw in 2 of em, and then debate on whether to even bother taking anything else or not.

Default Yeah

RIGHT ON!!!!!!!!!!!! I knew someone was out there that knew what i was talking about.

I took it to the field this afternoon and no one had seen one before. Some had heard of them but that was it. I got laughed at, heckled at and some people were even going as far as putting bets on wether it would fly with the Saito 72.

Lets put it this way, once i took off and went straight into a tail touch hover and a harrier all around the field while all the time being 3-4 clicks above idle. I couldn't keep them away from the plane and they were begging for info on it.

I'm telling ya, the evenings don't last long enough do they..........

now it's on to buiding bigger ones :-)

I like your color scheme!
I found some mail box posts at Lowes made of 4" square black PVC. Might be a bit big, but I figure it can always be chopped.

mpj220, have you flown it? I am wondering how well the 36" is with only a .40 on it. I put .40's on the 30"ers

mpj220, the plastic electric outlet boxes at Home Depot or Lowes, they're usually blue, make very good control horns, probably a lot stronger than the white pvc ones. Each box will give you 8 horns and material left over for doubler plates. Sometimes I see these boxes go for very cheap.

BTW, hovering with a Qhor is almost like cheating I think, that's how sickingly easy it is. I went from not being able to hover for a single second to hovering for over a minute. Torque rolls however are another matter.

Isn't that the truth on hovering. It make s a little difference though that you dont give a hoot if it goes in while hovering. You cant hurt these things. I have got to the point if i dont dump it while hovering or doing something else, i'm not pushing myself and thats the only way we get better :-)

I think i had 5 flights in a row where i was doing tail touches one after another and would hit the tail just the wrong way and over it goes.

It gets a good laugh from everyone. Gas it back up and go...........

Default Qhor magic

It is true. I am about as new as any one. After the debbie, went to the qhor. Just finished doing the hover til u run outta gas thing! Nose first. BONK! Nothing wrong! Picked it up, fueled it up, cranked it up. Off we go....

flipa10, one of the video's on my site I purposely ran out of full in a 10-15' hover and nosed it in..

Mark, I also have video on my site of a 24" FP.40 powered QHOR, its fairly underpowered yet, but does some wicked snap spins!

John VH, could you post the dimensions of the FP .40 powered one in your video? Also where does the 24" wing version balance? Thanks.

Sure, its identical to the 30" one, but the wing is only 24" I had it balanced a bit closer to the fold, but you can play with that.. That is it. It did not have enough power to pull vertical out of a hover..that is why it got a 30" wing and a BB40!!
