Sales I've seen

Recommended Posts

As Marc said, it's more an AeroCanard than a Cozy.  From what I can tell, it's a plans-built AeroCanard FG, possibly with the kit SX top and cowlings (although it could be entirely plans), and with a handful of other modifications.

 

It's worth looking at to only see what the AeroCanard design is mainly all about (with the exception of the AeroCanard SB, a copy of the Cozy IV) -- a widened rear section to eliminate various curves for purposes of aesthetics, improving airflow to the prop, or both.

Looks like they're packaging a bunch of stuff and selling on CD. eBay is full of sellers like that, repackaging Popular Science articles and whatnot. I see that seller is also selling KR-2 plans.

 

The biggest concern is whether someone thinks they can build from any of those by assuming they are 100% accurate.

Price seems fair for all the stuff that's there.  Still a lot to be done so you could probably get the repairman's certificate.  Not crazy about that rear-opening turtledeck.  Seems like an unneeded complication like putting four doors on a CE-172.

Very nice but "fully priced" as they say.  For me, building is as much fun as flying but If I spent 5000 hrs building and only put 95 hrs on it, I'd be a little depressed.

Wow, that's a nice plane.

Y'aint kidding, but maybe the joy was all in the build and creating this marvelous flying machine for others to enjoy.

Nice indeed. I really like the naca plenum extension that they built. Nice work, plain and simple.

I bet they are more draggy, due to more interference drag, than similar intakes that are integrated into the turtleback.  But are they more or less draggy than an entire NACA cooling system?

 

 

As you know, it is the whole system that matters: take in the minimum amount of air, stop it, run it through the fins, accelerate it back to free-stream velocity.  You might get away with somewhat draggy intakes if you are saving energy with a lesser amount of air to stop and reaccelerate.    Klaus said that armpit intakes are better than top downdraft intakes because they get good flow in a climb when you need the extra cooling.  OTOH, it is harder to baffle for updraft cooling.  And you still have to provide for oil cooling and carb air.

 

IMO, it's hard to beat a NACA intake.  It provides cooling, carb and oil air in one simple-to-built configuration.  You just have to eliminate every air leak so it all goes through the fins, carb, and cooler.

The Cozy/Aerocanard mentioned in posts 25-26 now on Ebay with a $12.5K buy-it-now price; being sold by an Ogden, Utah EAA Chapter.  I imagine the reserve is the $10K they were asking in the Controller ad.  Lots of parts there but sometimes these things are not worth the hassle of getting them home and trying to make something of it .
 
However, I bet it would be a lot less work than our late friend Zubair put into that two-engine project he trucked across the U.S. and rebuilt.  If it had a Lycoming, it would be sold by now.  Looks heavy.  I see two rather stout roll-over structures.
 
Build to plans, keep it light, use a Lycoming, go flying before you get too old.

So true.  Sometimes you have to imagine even getting it for free, and then think through all that would be required to finish.

 

Build to plans, keep it light, use a Lycoming, go flying before you get too old.

Aye! (although in my case my plans design calls for a Continental O-200). Modified: "Build to plans, keep it light, use the plans engine, go flying before you cannot."

Berkut Project

 

Are my eyes playing tricks on me or has the F10 Bulkhead been highly modified?  It's difficult to tell from the posted image,

but doesn't it seem like the F10 bulkhead has been chopped up?  What doesn't look right here?

The instrument panel has definitely been cut out but an aluminum panel was a Berkut option.

Berkut project. Out of my price range for a project  ...

 

Yeah, $55K seems rather steep considering you can buy a nice flying O-320/Long-EZ for that.  A Long-ez or Cozy at that stage would be, what, $15K?  Clearly, he hasn't been reading "Sales I've Seen".  :-)
