Hull Insurance cost for a Long EZ

Coffee House 22 Jun 2016
I was quoted $1,700 for Hull insurance on my Long EZ. This is for $38,00 in Hull insurance only.  Is this in the ball park of what other EZs are being insured for?

Question. Considering the Mark IV

Coffee House 19 Jun 2016
Hi, there!   I'm a new pilot; well, almost. Should be finished by end of July. Just prepping for my oral exam.   I'm considering building a Mark IV but am a bit concerned about the cabin space. I'm about 220 and my son is every bit of that. The max weight for the front seat appears to be 400lbs.   Additionally, there doesn't appear to be a great deal of leg room. I'm 6'3 as is my son. Are there any modifications you can make to accommodate bigger, taller folks? Perhaps cut away the bottom few inches of the panel, maybe?   Any input would be appreciated.   Thanks so...

Long EZ in Atlanta I can sit in?

Coffee House 18 Jun 2016
Hi gang,   Finally got to sit in a couple of Cozy IIIs - one a "normal build" and the other a Cozy Girlz strakes mod.  I always thought of myself as thin build, but those were a lot cozier than I expected in the hips and shoulders!   Since they are only trying to hold a single pilot in width, are the Long EZ's any roomier or are they just as tight for hip and shoulder as the Cozy IIIs?  As I'm getting older, I'm finding I have less tolerance and flexibility for being totally shoehorned into a little box.  Just for fun I tried out sitting in a KR2 today - made the Co...

New Canard Design - Oshkosh 2016

Coffee House 28 Apr 2016
I was offered a spot on the team that is doing the Vacuum Infusion demo this year at Oshkosh. Talk about a learning opportunity!!! It will be a new canard design that should prove to be a screamer.   All of the components will be fabricated onsite over the course of four days (Mon.-Thurs.) This will be located in the big tent next to the Warbird Replica building.   It’s not often that we get to see the birth of a new Canard design. ​

New EZ dreamer from Europe, Slovakia

Introductions, Visits, Sightings & Rides 24 Apr 2016
Hello all!   I was born and studied automation and aircraft control systems in Ukraine, Kiev. After I first time boarded Antonov An-26 being 7-year old kid, thanks to my dad, I got infected by aviation. In my childhood I was lucky to see and touch monsters like Tupolev Tu-95 and Tu-22, before they were smashed into metal scrap. I was also very lucky to watch Mig-29 military training from the edge of taxiway in now-Russian Crimea.   I'm 26. Working with composites for ~6 year. Last 3 years have been working for small helicopter company, Skyline. Was responsible for all composites m...

Long-EZ 24 Apr 2016
Hello canard builders and pilots!   I'm new here. Want to build Long EZ. Now in the planning stage.   I want to make it light, ideally same weight as in plans. I know, some might say it's impossible.   ----   I'm particularly interested in weights of airframe components.   If someone has any info, statistics, please post your weight of airplane parts (wings, canard etc). Also would be great to know before and after finishing etc.   Particularly I want to know the mass of canard (Roncz) without elevators to check if I calculate it correct.    May calcu...
