I was fortunate enough to make a visit with Kent today and look at his airplanes, including the very beautiful Long EZ for sale. Zipper as Kent calls it. Probably a rare experience to have a hangar open and view two canard aircraft built by the same person.

 

I'm just not ready yet, or I would become a new owner. It is a beautiful plane, clearly well built. Whoever gets that plane will be one lucky person.

 

Kent was very kind and gave me a ride in his Cozy. Closing in on 65 years, and I felt like a little kid. Fly's fantastic. My first time in a canard. I'll post up later on my experience. Thanks Kent!

Photobucket not playing nice - apparently no 3rd party images unless one pays. I'll see if I can find something better and post a picture.

Today's ebay.  A sad looking project that appears to have sat outside for a while judging by the rust on the nosewheel pivot.  I put a section of wing outside in the sun about 10 months ago.  The fiberglass still looks pretty good but the exposed foam is deteriorating on the surface.  I'm guessing this fuselage is usable and good cores could be cut out of the beat-up foam but you'd probably cut off the nose to make a long one, toss the canard and build a Roncz, and replace the instrument panel [Another case of cutting the instrument panel in advance for 1980's instruments]  Do I see the shadow of a MLG hoop behind the pile?

 

A lot of buyers want original plans so that's something.  Yeah, a scrounger could make something out of that but not at his price, me thinks.

Today's B-stormers;  Nice looking EZ but the paint will raise the surface temp about 15F.  Saw this chart in one of Marc's posts

http://hallert.net/c...rCurveChart.gif

Mystery price.   Appears to be N234LE, 1983 build.

From the Cozy Mail List:

 

Nancy Patrick stopped by my hangar again yesterday, in Longmont, Colorado. She has a Velocity project of her late husband’s that she wants to get rid of. She has said that it may be worth about $20K.

The project apparently has everything except the engine. No one has seen it, AFAIK.

She does not use email. She has not provided her address, but here is her phone number.

303-651-7991

Thanks for any assistance.

This interesting Cozy/Aerocanard on Ebay today.  In S. Africa and with very few details.  For example, no engine pics of the turbo rotary.  I wonder about Ebay sellers.   In my experience, there is a period of courtship involved in selling a homebuilt which Ebay does not well-accommodate, but maybe there are buyers for a mail-order-bride who will say "Here is your $50K and I be over Friday to pick her up." 

 

Ad sez:  "Cozy MKIV rotary turbo with electrical front lift retraction, electrical landing brake, MGL challenger with fully integrated autopilot, avioguard electrical supply, transponder, MGL radio, MGL RDAC engine monitoring, Mgl back up for altitude and airspeed."

And this EZ project on Barnstormers.  Long nose, Roncz canard, big canopy.  Looks pretty nice.  I am certain he's selling for not more than the price of his materials but there's still a lot of finishing, engine, and avionics to add.

Probably a good deal, but it sure makes your EZ look really good pricewise...

Barnstormers today.  Wikipedia says 20 built, 5 flying.  Yep, it would be a fun piece of history to own.  Burt's site says 150 mph cruise (130 KTAS) with an O-320.  I'm sceptical an O-360 is going to get you another 30-40 mph but maybe so.  Sure would like to see the inside of it.

Seller of this EZ says "new price" but it's not one I have noticed before.

 

On another topic, the S. African Cozy/Rotary above has one bid at $35K.  The sale has already expired once on a $35K bid.  I see that the seller removed his $40,000 Buy-it-now price from the ad, however, I suspect his reserve is near $40K and it won't sell.   We'll see.

 

It would be fun to look up some of the tail numbers in this thread and see which ones have changed owners.  I have a tail-number Iphone app that will show the ownership.  Will have to play with it.

AT $185K, it seems a little expensive for an airplane in primer but I see he had it listed at $235K on Trade-a-plane.  That's quite a come-down!

It has some pricey parts.  Some things look a little slap-dash but could be improved fairly easily.
