This is the beautiful, radically different, extremely futuristic, high performance two-seater seater American home-built aircraft that was capable of cruising at 140-160 knots. Featuring an all fibreglass and kevlar airframe, the Quickie Q-200 was fitted with the powerful Continental O-200 100HP engine.

This package features THIRTEEN paint schemes, many different cabin upholstery themes and several different versions of panel colours, from grey to carbon fibre to lite-blue, racing stripes, car colours and even one in varnished light wood. This aircraft is fitted with Team Asobo's leading edge avionics stack, with GNS530, transponder and a bare bones autopilot for lite help in managing flights and climb outs.

Graphics in the Q-200 are mostly 4K HD in PBR format with a few bump maps. It is not too hard on most computers. You should not need a powerful rig to run the Q on. If you are running MSFS with no problems, this should not pull down performance too much.

The PDF manual can be downloaded here.

See the Detailed Description below for more details of the aircraft features!


THIRTEEN DIFFERENT EXTERIOR PAINT SCHEMES

The Quickie Q-200 is mapped with high resolution 4K textures that give it crisp line graphics. Some of the paint schemes are in wild neon colours, some are in white, and several look like air racers with rich graphics and stripe work.


OVER FIVE VERSIONS OF INTERIOR THEMES

There are quite a few interiors with panels in various materials and colours, from auto paint, regular grey fibreglass, carbon fibre, to very nice racing stripes. The seats range from cloth to nice leather. The interior shell is painted with a spatter paint which quite a few Q-2 and Q-200 builders used when finishing these kit aircraft.


MANY PANEL COLOUR VARIATIONS

The instrument panels are what really set the Q-200 apart from other planes. They had a very 'automotive'-like appearance with the instruments in cool, rounded pods, similar to the Lotus Esprit, and the avionics were housed in a cool tower structure between the two instruments pods. The centre console added to the car-like experience. So sporty, including arm rests.


4K HIGH RESOLUTION TEXTURES

This aircraft was originally built in regular FS graphics tech, but for MSFS it was completely reconverted to PBR Material Technology including bump mapping. Much attention to detail was carried out to make her as precise and realistic as possible.


PLEXI RAIN AND SCRATCH EFFECTS

Team Asobo present a brilliant rain effect on plexiglass that shows movement and wind effects on drops on the windscreen and with radical realisation. Once more, they also feature 'Albedo Detail Maps' that show very nice, detailed scuffing and scratches in the plexiglass.


TWO CENTRE TANKS WITH FUEL TRANSFER SYSTEM

The Q-200 features the realistic actual 'two fuel tank' system, where the front 5 US gallon header tank gravity feeds (through engine pump) to the engine, while a second 15 US gallon tank resides under the front of the seats. The fuel from the seat tank must be transferred up to the header tank by electrical pump. You must remain aware of this and keep the header tank from going dry during your flights.


OSHKOSH CAMPING MODE

In honour of the famous yearly Oshkosh home-built EAA airshow event, I wanted to have a neat little camping tent theme that can be deployed when you park your plane and shut it down. Behold OshKosh mode! A small button on the far right of the instrument panel launches the tents. Happy camping!


AUTOMOTIVE SUPERCAR COLOUR INSPIRATIONS

You will find that some of the colours of the Qs look similar to Lamborghini and Tesla colours. They are inspiringly bright and beautiful and so I used nearly identical colours. Midnight Blue is from Tesla; the Neon Green and Electric Orange are similar to the Lamborghini Huracan colours.


AVIONICS

The avionics stack of the Q-200 is all by Team Asobo, makers of Microsoft Flight Simulator. This suite is state of the art technology, using HTML and Java code. It features things like boot-up screens and in-depth page layers. This suite includes the AS530, AS430 and a nice transponder.

I have also created and included a very 'bare bones' autopilot that features the basics LVL mode, HDG, NAV and VS, and you can adjust your VS rate as well as adjust your altitude via an input knob. It is not capable, however, of radical automated flight management. It is only there to help out on busy climb-outs and holding altitude.


SOUND SYSTEM

The Quickie Q-200 uses a 4-cylinder Continental O-200 100HP 'high performance' engine. I used the Asobo 4-cylinder engine option that I thought sounded best for this sleek little X-Wing beast. I think you will be amazed at the sounds.


COOL FEATURES OF THIS RADICAL, FUTURISTIC 'X-WING' BEAST

Q-200 flaps 'Flexor' system - the Q-200 uses a radical flight control called a 'flexor' system. This rotates the rear wing-mounted ailerons upwards, creating drag and aiming the aircraft upwards. These act like flaps and spoilers.

Plexiglass tint adjustment - I have included a way to change out the darkness setting of the exterior plexi bubble with three settings: dark, medium and nearly transparent. A small button on the right of the panel manages this feature. The interior is not tinted.

Fuel range - the Q-200 with continental O-200 engine should yield 400 NM range at about 5,000 feet, weather permitting; that puts it at about 5 gallons per 100 NM. that is how much is in the header tank. Remember to keep an eye on fuel levels.

Q-200 fuel transfer system - the Q-200 uses a unique fuel system similar to Concorde and older Learjets, where fuel must be manually brought to the main tank. In this case, the Q has a top/front-mounted header tank that is quite small, and fuel from the main lower tank under the seats must be brought up via electric pump. You must keep an eye on this and make sure the header doesnt run dry during your flight.

Warning lights - I installed a mesmerising amount of warning lights in this bird - almost as much as a Christmas tree. You can read up on them in the Owner's Manual.

Custom registration numbers system - a lot of people are into doing custom registries for their own countries, so I went to a great effort to adapt this feature of MSFS custom registries into the Q. The manual shows the basics for those who know little of how to do their own customisation to the registry settings.

System Requirements:


  • Microsoft Flight Simulator (i.e. the 2020 Standard, Deluxe or Premium Deluxe PC/Steam edition - NOT FSX or any previous edition)
Note: You MUST know where your MSFS Community folder is and manually direct this plane into that folder to install it. This installer cannot 'see' MSFS on computers.
