I would guess that by the time you find a canard and get it shipped to Switzerland, you would find it better to just build one.  I rarely see canards for sale anyway.  If you bought one with the lift-tabs drilled for another airplane, you might not be able to use it without replacing the lift tabs which is possible but not a small job.

 

What's the story on your Varieze.  We are more likely to help folks who communicate.  :-)

I got this post from Urs replying to the email notification (which brings an interesting thought to allow that manner to reply to these posts, but that's another topic -- if even possible).

 

Anyway, Urs wrote this:

 

Thanks for the reply Kent,

I have purchased the bird damadged . The Pilot had started the engine with trottle slightly open and id got away from him. On Impact with an other parked Airplane it ripped the Canard off. I think i will repair it,

it seems easyer for me than building from scratch.

Without seeing the type of damage in-person I would favor Ken's recommendation -- build a new one (assuming the damage is anything beyond cosmetic). You could get someone to build one for you, but it was designed for you to build yourself.

Ha!  Well tell Urs that my friend in Europe who wrecked his new-bought Cozy not only built a new canard but also just about everything in front of the instrument panel and did it pretty quickly for a chap with no homebuilding experience trying to order parts from the U.S.  I have tried to get him to post pics here but he is not the posting kind of guy.  Anyway, I will post a couple pics of his repairs in a different thread.  Just get to work and bingo, in a few days, he'll have a new canard.
