Canard weight comparison.


Recommended Posts

Is there any reason why you are not tracking the plane's designation? In the extreme ideal case, you'd have several thousand canards in this spreadsheet. I would think that without some description per line of "which plane" you'll loose track.

Thanks for doing the data collection Rick. I should have told you that I have an O-235-L2C in my Long (not an O-235-C1 as listed). It is the 18th Long EZ on the list (line 22).


I hope it isn't picking up too much weight during the current re-build/painting.

I have an update on my empty weight after painting and now re-weighing my Long with certified aircraft scales. It is now 885 pounds!!! The huge change from 791 pounds had to be from two things. Naturally the filler and paint made a change, but I'm thinking that I didn't apply 94 pounds of filler and paint. I think the big change was from bathroom scales to certified aircraft scales. Don't use bathroom scales to weigh your aircraft!
