A different 3" spar tape - usable?

Materials 04 Mar 2018
I have bought some 3" uni tape from France, believed to have been intended for someone's canard project, but never used. It is a bit different to the 'usual' heavy stuff.  See photo for side-by-side comparison.   I have enough of the usual tape for a canard, and enough of the lighter tape for an entire cozy (estimated by weight). There are more cross-threads, and they do not seem to be readily removeable. Obviously being a lighter / thinner tape, I'd need more layers to fill the troughs.   Can anyone advise on whether this tape is a good substitute? Perhaps this stuff has b...

Nose Gear Collapse

Long-EZ 02 Mar 2018
I'm the proud owner of N16AV, long EZ built by Kent Ashton. Kent is truly a master builder, and finished the plane in 2014. I recently purchased it from him and he was kind enough to fly it out to southern California from North Carolina. He also spent a few days out here transitioning me into the aircraft. During my transition I found the aircraft to be a little hotter than the Cessna 172 that I trained and certified in. Several of my initial landing attempts, well let's just say I stressed the gear. I also know that I bounced the nose gear up and down off the runway numerous times in my fi...

A heapin' helpin' of builder links

Builder Progress Reports & Motivation 15 Feb 2018
Credit to Chris Groenewald for resurrecting links from the late Tom Tugan's website.  Unfortunately some of them are dead links but a lot are still good and there were quite a few I was not familiar with.  This'll give you a few pleasant hours of reading.  I started to weed out the dead links but it was driving me crazy.  :-)   -Kent   http://www.ez.org/ca...mars/index.html :  Craig Kossowski  http://www.marcnadine.com/ : Marc/Nadine Parmeleehttp://www.mykitlog.com/crazycanuck/ : Aaron Fennellhttp://www.cozybuild...glia/index.html ...

Newbie with questions

Long-EZ 14 Feb 2018
Hi all,   I'm an airline pilot and always wanted to own a plane. So recently I have been looking into experimental aircraft, more specifically aircraft like the RV8 and Long EZ's. The idea is day VFR with the occasional night flight (if that is even allowed under EASA).   I do have quite some questions about the Long EZ. It would be great to have some input from owners/pilots. So here are some of my questions.   - Is there any company that manufactures something like a Long EZ kit?  - Is it a viable option to buy a used Long EZ and strip down the interior in order to reb...
