Keep seeing pics of this pretty little EZ, LV-X383

Coffee House 27 May 2017
I can't keep myself from looking for pics of pretty birds, particularly Long-EZs. I've run across a lot of pics of a particular bird with red trim and the number LV-X383. http://www.airplane-...n.php?p=LV-X383 There's some nice pictures of this plane around the internet. She found her way onto my wallpaper before I spotted her LV number and realized it was the same plane as in a whole bunch of the other pics I found.   Can't find a lot of info on this bird but I noticed that she's sporting a Nasa logo on her nose. http://www.airplane-...-rutan-long-ez/ This confused me a little since...

Whatever happened to the Junqua Aircraft website?

IBIS 23 May 2017
Just out of curiosity I was researching the Ibis canard. I'm not planning on building one, but I was curious to see what other tandem canards have been designed besides the Vari-eze and Long EZ. The wikipedia article had a link too the designer website: http://www.junqua-aircraft.com/ . I clicked on it. Instead of finding the designer's site, I found myself at a site featuring an article on breast-enhancing creams, of all things. Huh.   The domain name www.junqua-aircraft.com seems to be owned by a web portal devoted to aromatherepy and women's health issues now. Hard to imagine a less...

MGS Epoxy & hardener for sale

For Sale (or for FREE) 22 May 2017
For sale, MGS epoxy at about 50% discount:   MGS L285 resin (2 gallons) - $150   MGS H285F fast hardener (5 quarts) - $100   MGS H287S slow hardener (7 quarts) - $150   These have dates 2008 and 2012 on them, so they are somewhat old. But as I understand it, they don't actually expire as long as they are stored in a dark place, which they were.   Local pickup (Arlington VA 22205 only), as I don't want to deal with hazmat shipping.

N-number inquiry turns up an Open-EZ in FAA registry, hav...

Open-EZ 22 May 2017
I'm thinking about building an Open EZ. I've been wondering, though, if any actual airplanes have been completed using these drawings (especially considering the scaling confusion).   When I get interested in a design, I often run a make/model inquiry at the FAA Registry to see if any turn up. This isn't absolutely reliable since a plane could be registered under a different name, but it does turn up interesting info often. So I ran a inquiry for "open ez", and a result popped up!   N-number N871CG (http://registry.faa....Numbertxt=871CG) is assigned to a fixed-wing, single engine...

New guy in Arizona, gotten bitten badly by the EZ bug

Introductions, Visits, Sightings & Rides 21 May 2017
Hello everyone, I'm a total newbie from Arizona. I have never built a plane, nor learned how to fly yet (in fact, I didn't find out about experimentals in general until a few months ago). I've dreamed of flying a Long EZ since I was a kid paging through a back issue of Air & Space, and ran across an article about the EZ-rocket that mentioned the LEZ. At that time I thought it was a kit airplane, and heard something about it be discontinued. So I was pretty sure I could never build one. Years later, I finally found that the Long EZ was always built from plans, and I could build one (or a...
