Hello Mike,
I think you'll enjoy the build, it's a bit time-consuming but not hard.
I've flown my QF-II about 20 flights since replacing the elevator servo, and can say it's a very good intro DLG. Easy to trim, launches aren't difficult or scary, and the glide is flat and slow.
Although wintertime and snowy fields aren't ideal for thermals, the model has managed to find a few small bubbles of lift and I'm getting better at working the low level, weak lift. Can't wait for the hat-lifters of summer!
My throwing arm got a bit sore the first times out but now is used to the motion and the velocity is better. I still get the occasional Loopy, over-the-top launch, must remember to keep the nose level!

Hi Ron,

Thanks for the build thread and the great pics.

I've got a MM J3 almost finished, and a Magpie Sport is next. Still very new to this RC flyin thing and the Magpie is gonna be my "crash" course into 4 channel flying. The Magpie should be a pretty quick build then it's on to the QF II.

I've been through a couple big threads on the QF II and it does look a bit challenging, especially if you shoot for the lightest AUW possible.

If I do any posting about the build I'll do it here if that's OK with you. I don't really have the ambition to create a full blown build thread of my own. I did the same thing with my J3 build, I kinda tagged along on texasclouds J3 thread.

........Mike
