Thanks for downloading my rendition of the Rutan Quickie for FSX.

Installation is accomplished by placing the 'Quickie' folder in the SimObjects/Airplanes folder, and placing the included font file where ever the stock fonts live for your OS. I use WinXP, and my fonts are found in the root Windows folder...Windows/Fonts.


To toggle the pilot in / out of the plane click on the engine controls housing.
The original Quickie used an 18hp Onan generator engine. My version was modeled after a real one using a two-stroke 50 hp Rotax. There is no internal oil system, so there are no gauges for oil pressure or oil temperature.
The high idle RPM is based on what I found researching the Rotax 503 specs.
The prop rotates in the opposite direction, which is correct for this engine.
The flight model is somewhat close. Canard configurations are not really modeled well in FS, and I decided not to spend a huge amount of time trying to get the stall characteristics correct.
The prop does NOT use the 'traditional' blur texture. In real life you would see it as I modeled it. If you don't like that I am sorry...but I have sat behind spinning props for many hours. I know what they look like :)
