Specification

Designed in 1975 and intended as a low-cost, low powered single seat homebuilt aircraft. The Quickie, designed by Sheehan, Jewett and the legendary Burt Rutan, features an unusual wing arrangement with a large canard and wingtip mounted main wheels followed by a similarly sized aft wing.

Ultimately 1000 kits were sold by the Quickie Aircraft Corporation before it closed its door,s though the plans are still available to buy today and the aircraft has achieved a cult following.

For our 3D printed model plane version of this unusual aircraft we recommend a print bed size of 200mm/200mm/240mm (210z is available on request)

See the downloadable Assembly manual on this page for more details. Follow the blog for up to date Quickie news.
