Bean Counter Posted June 1, 2008 Share Posted June 1, 2008 I have been researching the Cozy Mk IV for a while and will likely buy a set of plans within the week. I have some questions I need answered before I do, so I hope you folks can help me. 1. Aerocad's website mentions a canopy with more headroom (2 inches in height and 2 inches in width) for the front seats. Does the standard Cozy MK IV canopy lack in this area? How tall does a pilot have to be before needing the extra height? 2. I would prefer to build from plans rather than a kit (hence the Cozy). I would like to buy some pre-fab parts to speed the process, however, but I'd need to be thrifty about the cost (hence my screen name ). If you were going to recommend some pre-fab components to go on a Cozy Mk IV based on the most "bang for the buck" (build time saved per dollar spent) what would be the top priorities? 3. What is the limiting factor for the 220 mph top speed? When I see planes like the Berkut going much faster, I wondered what limits the Cozy. If more horsepower were available at the same installed weight, what would have to be modified or redesigned to cruise as fast as say, a new mooney. Thanks in advance!
