I was using a practically new HP DesignJet 350C as one of the printers, but this was a casualty of the same break-in that caused the Canard Zone to go down.  

 

Thanks for the offer... I'll keep you in the loop as soon as they're ready to go.

The challenge is that no matter how much I improve my project management skills, time remains the limiting factor.

I have broken down the next steps into a project plan (also including the other Open-EZ projects and the Canard Zone itself), and Ill be looking for various forms of help in the near future.

Thanks for the poke!

The upside here is that I have an improved method for establishing the verification rulers (to confirm accuracy of printed pages) that will also be applied to the Long/Open-EZ templates.

Both are in the queue and will be produced as soon as possible.

Did the Open-EZ Twin plans ever get released?  I sure hope so because the Open-EZ/Twin appears to the the only aircraft that exactly fits my needs.

I am planning to use the upcoming "inside months" (winter) to take care of the remaining work (for which much remains).  Updated Open-EZ drawings will be released as well.

 

In the meantime, keep your eye out for abandoned Defiant projects.  The Defiant is the most labor-intensive of all Rutan homebuilts.

 

Thanks for the nudge!

Google image search "Coscio Twin" and you will see a couple of twins.  The Coscio twin was not successful; got modified into a single (which later crashed for unrelated reasons).  Of course Velocity is flying their nice twin but taking on a scratch-built twin engined project (unless it's a Defiant) is really biting into a big schnitzel.  Even the Defiant is a pretty big schnitzel to swallow.

 

Take a couple of years (or 22, like one recent builder) and knock out a Cozy or EZ project.  I bet you will decide that a single engine is just fine.  :-)
