Canards and long runways, why do we need them?

Coffee House Yesterday, 11:06 PM
I keep reading that people need what some people consider insanely long runways for their canard planes.   Ignoring the question of what constitutes 'insanely' here, why do they need such long runways?  Lack of acceleration?  Lack of deceleration?  What can we do to make this...

General Engine & Fuel System Topics 29 Oct 2014

General Construction 27 Oct 2014
I am currently in the recon phase collecting as much information as possible concerning building a Long Ez. Combing thru a few builders blogs I see myriad of modifications that have been added to the original design. This of course is to be expected for a design of this age but few if any were ev...
