April 21/16. An exciting time getting back working on my Quickie Q2 after 4 months off. Beautiful warm days allowing me to get the airplane out in the sun. Yesterday was overcast and the airport quiet. I got the airplane out for taxi practice for 20 minutes on the unused Runway at Springbank. The plane performed well doing s-turns, braking, 360's and straight runs. Last week I had to fix a radio interference problem and also found the starter had a loose wiring connection. Just a few more items to tune up. I found the brake sensitivity lacking and the right wheel still needed adjustment. The weather is staying rainy and cooler for a few days so I can give these attention inside the hangar.
