Low oil temp and roll trim servo question

VariEze 24 Oct 2015
G'day All,   Hope someone might be able to help me out with a couple of question regarding my Vari-eze.     The first one relates to oil temp.   Does anyone know a good product to wrap the 0-200 oil tank in so as to raise the oil temp.  Presently I am seeing around 155 F and it is just not hot enough to assist in vaporising condensation.  As a result and following a period of the engine being inhibited I discovered a LOT of sludge and varnish in the sump.  Some of this is attributed to the 4 years in storage with Phillips Anti Rust Oil in the sump but much...

Mark IVs Denver Area?

Introductions, Visits, Sightings & Rides 20 Oct 2015
Re-acclimating myself to the Mark IV again. Went in for a normal physical and somehow the doctor and I got started on planes. To make a long story short, we are both planning to build a Mark IV and wondered if there are any flying in the Denver area we can check out or possibly pay for fuel for a short flight.

Hello Canard Zone Members,   I am in the Canberra Australia area and I am looking to purchase either a Long-EZ or a Cozy Mark IV that is currently on the VH register.

spar cap template curvature

Chapter 14 12 Oct 2015
I'm noticing that the top spar cap templates for B.L.52 and B.L.67.5 are slightly curved in addition to being tapered.  Is the purpose of this curvature to make the top of the completed spar follow the shape of the airfoil more closely in that area?  What's confusing me is that the plans don't mention the curvature, and sections C-C and D-D do not show it either.   Joe Cozy Mk IV #1550
