This is a short kit that includes only the wood structure for the fuselage and tail, as well as wood support structure for optional plastic or fiberglass wing tips. Plans, landing gear and optional wing tips are available from the designer Jim Allen (see the Instructions tab for a link).
This short kit is an updated version of the AMA legal Quik-V6 Quickie 500 pylon racing plane that was used to win the AMA Nationals 426 Super Sport Quickie class in 2014 and 2019, as well as numerous other contests. This short kit of the latest version, the Quik-V7, has some structural improvements to the previous Version 6 that was sold by Great Planes as an ARF. The external dimensions are the same as the V6 and it uses the same airfoil so, a wing from one of the Great Planes ARF’s will fit great. In addition, a wing for a Great Planes Viper 500 can be used by sanding a bit on the saddle area of the framed fuselage.
For wing options, foam wing cores are available directly from Matney Models - see the Instructions tab for a link.
In early to mid 2020, a molded composite version of the Quik-V7 wing will be available from Jim as well. Jim also has landing gear available but, many racers will have landing gears from previous airplanes, including the Great Planes ARF, that will work fine on this short kit.
