Quantum F3F

Recommended Posts

Incoming... 

The first two (UK owned) Quantum's are currently in transit and due to arrive in the UK this week. Both are double C80 carbon versions for stiffness and lightness. 

Below are some sneak peak pics, once they arrive I will post some more pics and take some weight measurements. I will also post some pictures of the install when it starts but I'm not really looking to do a build thread, just give people an idea of the quality and ease of instillation. 

The bags are the professional version that are a 50 Euro premium, standard bags are available and included in the price. Models come with a full set of accessories and 2 kg worth of brass ballast, allowing you to load to max FAI limits without forking out on tungsten.

They must be washing the windows at the Gliding Club today then Mike.

Had a great day with the first flight of my Quantum.  Really impressed how good it was straight away.  Did a few fine tweaks on the elevator and snap flap and got it fly on rail. Very f

That one was wasted on me Phil... :huh:

Mine is the predominantly green one, the predominantly white one is going to Les.

Nothing brings me solace... you robbed me... :angry:

The Quantum was supposed to be "congratulations to me" purchase... Now that you have mentioned it, it will always be a reminder of a lonely time spent eating worms :cry:

Bring on next season when it helps me kick your :blink: ... :D

I think you are right there Mike. I particular like the wing and tail root lines and how they merge with the fuzz, I will take photos of what I mean when they get here.

Sorry Phil, I'm too slow on the old uptake.

I've only been classed as British for 2 weeks, you need to give me time to get into James Bond, Monty Python, tea, fish and chips and all the other things that make people quite essentially British (all though I do already have a jolly good moan about the weather so I'm halfway there).

Very nice Brett. What’s the build quality and fit like? Good as Baudis and TUD?

Will have to get back to you on that, they are only due to arrive on Thursday. 

I have seen one before and the quality looked really good but I only had a quick look at it, will need to look closely when it arrives.

A few pics of my Quantum and notes on the build quality. The quality is amazing, its not  absolutely perfect but there is nothing I am concerned about, I would say it would be a 9.5/10 and that's only on my plane. On Les' plane I would say its probably 10/10.

Mine has a lot of carbon on show and some of it you can see the weave is a little distorted, I knew with loads of carbon this was a possibility and its something I fully expected and don't hold anything against Ivan or his build standard (he even offered me a small discount on mine).  You can see he is a true craftsman and I wouldn't hesitate to buy another plane from him again. In fact, I'm already thinking of saving up for the next one. If anyone us thinking of pulling the trigger, go for it.

Packaging was very secure too.

Very nice Brett 👍

Lots of nice little design touches on that model and I love the Kawasaki green.

Just wait till you see it in person... The pictures dont do it justice.
