Question on NACA inlets

Recommended Posts

Question for Cozy builders

I have been following the forum for a long time and have a minor question. In looking at the various Cozy IV’s, I have never noticed any “auxiliary” NACA scoops for ventilation on the fuselage, and yet I keep hearing about them. Are these now standard features on the plane?

Jack, as John said, the plans do call for a small NACA scoop on each side of the fuselage, just below and behind the canard I believe.

 

While at SnF, I spoke w/Carl Denk who built a Cosy Classic. His plane has the NACA inlet(s) underneath the nose, which he says prevents water from traveling UP into the fuselage. There's also the aesthetic benefit of having fuselage sides without the NACA vents, which I think looks better.

 

This is a mod I am considering, but since it's a Cosy Classic, is it really a mod? :cool:
