rogerbacon Posted May 31, 2009 Share Posted May 31, 2009 My Long-EZ parks outside and we get terrible rains down here in May and June. I went out to fly yesterday and found a couple of inches of water in teh nose. I spend 30 minutes bailing water out and then soaking more of it up with a towel. How do you keep water out of the plane (other than putting it in a hanger which is not an option). I think most of the water came in through the elevator openings in the canard. I've wrapped that are with some plastic bags and stuffed the ends into the holes. I hope that makes a difference. Does anyone have a better solution? Also, when I lifted the nose up a lot of water ran out of the wing. I have tape over most of the seams between the areas wher the wings attach but some of it has come off. It is no big deal if water gets in there because it will drain out once the nose is lifted up, right? It can't get in anything important right? I mean soem people don't even tape up those areas.
