Ordered Plans

Recommended Posts

I just put through my order for a set of Cozy IV plans.

 

I have to say thanks to all those pleople out there that I have talked to regarding my decision to build a Cozy IV.

 

I originally started out with the intent of building a Long/Open-Ez, but with discussion between my wife and I, as well as many other people I have decided to go ahead with the Cozy IV.

 

I now have to wait approx 8 weeks for the plans to get here (Australia), which works out well as the plans are meant to be my birthday present. (isn't my wife nice.:D )

 

Current status for the Canard Construction facility (CCF) is that I am fitting out the insides with benches, power, lighting and such.

 

Anyway I am now a Cozy IV wannabe. :)

Welcome to the fold Jamie.

 

Your decision to build the cozy, I think was wise. There are several advantages. Primarily, if you and your wife intend to travel any amount, the rear seat is a great baggage compartment also available for dogs, cats, and wallabies. in a long or veri, your small duffles are on your lap, or being shipped by common carrier. You also have the ability to put a couple more souls in the craft should you be able to convince them to fly with you.:scared:

 

Another benefit is in the construction, especially in the "hell hole". Having a wider fuselage will give you much more access to difficult places and make the construction easier since you can climb inside with plenty of room.

I Canardly contain myself!

Rich :D

Congratulations!

I'd agree -- the Cozy Mark IV is a great plane, a capable 4-place or 2-place with a TON of luggage space.

Put a lot of energy into this part as it's one of the last chances you'll get to setup a few things "right". Keep in mind that you can complete through Chapter 4 on a 4'x4' piece of plywood, and can build your large jig table/bench after that. I did it this way and it worked out nice in that I had a chance to change based on actual usage. Of course, you can always think through things more than I did and get everything setup now.

Well done Jamie. The plans are an absolute hoot to read & fondle, which is all I've done with mine so far. Don't get too hung up on John's comments above, the shed'll do!

Jamie, another like minded Adelaide dweller.

 

I have been looking for other canard builders/wannabes for some time in SA. We're all coming out of the wood work now.

 

Any one else in SA, I have the facilites to print the OpenEZ drawings. If you want a copy I'd be glad to pass them on.

 

Looking at your user name I assume you work at Edinburgh. I know of one of the electronic techs on the Orions there.

 

Perhaps if there is enough interest we should all meet a pub one day to build a "Builders group" or so on.

 

I am not building at this stage. I am in the process of deciding between an OpenEZ or a Cozy.

RAKAI,

 

Yes, you are correct, when it comes to user names, I really have no imagination.

 

There are a few Adelaidians floating around now. Good to see. I have not started the build either, spent a good 2 years procastinating on what aircraft to build. I was looking at the Long/Open-Ez but in the end decided apon the Cozy IV.

 

If you need all the Canard pusher newsletters, let me know.

I have the Terf CDs so I have the Canard Pushers in searchable format. I also have the plans are contained on them, the AeroCanard freeware plans and the OpenEZ templates.

 

I like the utility of the Cozy but the fighter feel of the LongEZ. Oh the decisions.

Just ask my wife about the questions regarding the choice of aircraft I was going to build. In the end I think my wife was just happy that I had made my decesion and got on with it.

 

In the end the deciding factor was side by side seating and cargo carrying.

 

I would have loved the fighter type feel of the Long but that would have been at the expense of having my passenger all couped up in the back.

The trouble I am having is my wife says it would need to be 4 seats, so far so good.

 

Then she said there is no way she would get in a plane that flies backwards.
