Sales I've seen

Recommended Posts

The engine is interesting, but at nearly 100 lbs over plans weight I feel like it would really complicate w&b. Also that prop is pitched on the short side. You'd have to spin it at 2800 rpm to get maybe 150-155 kts. 

As for the body? If he's not an aerospace engineer the changing of the fuselage dimensions is a hard pass for me.

I wonder about the ability to rotate or suffer a dropped-in landing without hitting the prop.  It depends on the position of the axles, the prop tip and the deck angle. I would like to see a full photo with the engine in place.

Dang, Kent, You beat me to it!

I've contacted her via Facebook, She's looking to make sure they have all the logs and whatnot. Very unfortunate that her dad passed, but she has been really friendly, and may like advice in order to sell it. Anything I should pass on to her? I am not terribly familiar with EZ's since I am not an owner (yet) of any.

Yeah, you and a dozen others!  At this point, it's still a-pig-in-a-poke.  No price, no information, no idea about the avionics.  It appears to have a Hertzler prop but old 4-into-2 exhausts.  A lot depends on the model engine and hours.  The idea of getting a cheap airplane at an estate sale is enticing but I wouldn't drive from Minnesota without better info--especially with a dozen wolves growling over the carcass.  Be patient, you will find one in your neighborhood.

Can one of you send me her contact info? I may have an interested buyer...

Ah, the Picasso-on-the-curb has been to the Antiques Road Show.  I'm expect an ad for a $50,000 Long-ez but maybe showing up on her doorstep with 1000 $20s would look pretty good.  From the same heir this morning:

*EDIT*
I have gotten so much advice and interest in this. I am going to find needed documentation and figure out cost. May take a few weeks. Just wanted to give folks a heads up in case I am unable to return a new message on it. You guys and gals were great. Thank you!
