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.

Seen today on FB.  Seller in Spanaway, Washington.  Only two pics but you can track her down

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!

I see that the SQ2000 previously offer for $50K or trade  https://www.canardzone.com/forums/topic/21972-sales-ive-seen/?do=findComment&comment=62991  is up for auction again with bidding closing April 8th.  https://online.auctionnation.com/auction/17437/item/sq2000-canard-experimental-aircraft-4-seater-lyc-io360-200hp-exterior-color-white-interior-color-blue-2133973

Ad says "Wings have a dutch roll, Bill [Ortel] is recommending new CozyIV or LongEZ wings get fitted, the factory ribbed/molded wings ran heavy @ 120lbs per wing. Looking into other correction options right now. Being sold as is."

There must be an interesting story with that one.  I seem to recall Marc Z. has discussed it but I am not motivated to look it up.  According to the ad, the seller has put lots of new stuff on it but good luck selling it with that condition.  54 TT hours in 10 years.   I am guessing the seller just wants to get his hand out of the jar.  🙂

Kent,

It was last flown in December, has a current conditional inspection from the builder Dave Hanson, and spent 5 months with Bill Oertel for safety improvements and a complete check-out. It's not a perfect plane by any means, but the motor runs very strong, has good compression, and was scoped. I'm selling because I'm not well equipped to do winglet surgery to improve the roll control. But I do have a plan moving forward.

I knew I recognized that SQ2000. Dave showed me pictures of it, as part of his "portfolio" if you will, to convince me to let him finish the build on my Cozy. I've got to say I'm surprised to hear it's had the issues that it has, as he'd built at least a Varieze and a Long by 2005, and from what I can tell this thing was built in 2011 (though I'm just guessing based on the timestamp of the photos he sent me. I can't make out the N-number)

I replaced a winglet once. It’s documented in my Kent’s Long-ez thread.  It sounds difficult but actually can be done fairly easily.  Probably not much more work than making someone else's wings fit.  I show a jig in the thread to let you check the alignment.  Might be interesting to make one and see what you’ve got.   Good luck with the sale.

I went down and took a look at the plane with Bill O. and the owner. In my opinion, it is NOT safe to fly as is, and needs a LOT of work to make it safe to fly. It's extremely heavy, poorly built and a pig in a poke. I was hoping to be able to tell the current owner otherwise when I went to Chino to take a look (at my time and expense), but I couldn't in good faith say that anyone should fly the thing, even though Bill O. did once. He said (directly to me) that it was almost uncontrollable. The fact that Mr. Hanson signed off a CI on a plane that he himself had built, in my opinion, isn't worth (in the words of John Nance Garner) a bucket of warm piss. There are MANY safety issues with this plane that need addressing - I have a list...

For QO, I wouldn't let Mr. Hanson look at any plane I was going to fly in, much less work on it.

That reminds me of when you told me you wouldn't even let someone "tie your shoes" (which I believe was prior to your shoelace incident).

I give up though... what does 'QO' stand for?

We saw this SQ2000 in June, last year.  https://www.canardzone.com/forums/topic/21972-sales-ive-seen/?do=findComment&comment=61757   Apparently a 2008 build by David J. Hanson,  pics here http://www.n416.com/builderdh.html  and here   https://www.longezpilot.com/PG10 SQ 2000.htm   Then transferred to Ticon Storay of Fayetteville, AR in 2012.  https://flightaware.com/resources/registration/N440DH     This guy?  https://www.facebook.com/ticon.storay    Registration canceled in 2018   https://registry.faa.gov/aircraftrenewal_reports/CanceledReg_Results.aspx?NNumtxt=440DH&PageNo=1   Now it has a new panel (sort of) and new paint in San Diego.   I did not find a new registration under that N-number or the seller.    There are  few pieces of the puzzle missing here.  🙂

Two today: First a chap on the Cozybuilders list selling a project.  He says

Quote

Fuselage tub - this is 95% complete thru ch 9, F-22 to firewall, MGS epoxy used, 90% of surfaces peel plied, speed brake installed, main gear mounting hardware installed, probably best for a new or existing builder in New England area......$ make offer

Main Landing Gear - complete except for fairings, this is a Featherlite supplied bow (from about 15 years ago?) with torsional layups completed (peel plied), tabs also completed and finished off to fit above fuselage, all work MGS epoxy, tab holes could be adjusted or just sawed off and redone to fit different fuse....$ two thirds of whatever Featherlite (or current company) is charging for the raw bow  -  may be able to help with delivery as I will be back in area in late August and driving back to west coast in September.

Canard - 50% complete?, cores from Featherlite, shear web completed with attach tabs, front/back cores combined, spar cap completed on one side, all work with MGS epoxy ......$ make offer - may be able to help with delivery in September see above.

No pics avail right now. Did take some progress pics way back when before the invention of digital photography  ;- (.  I could scan the pics and email them to anyone interested but they are small sized pics without nearly the clarity of today's smartphones-much better to go see if serious about these parts. Arrangements can be made to view parts where they are stored at an industrial park warehouse outside Boston.

This Ellison TBI today.  Heck of a deal, they sell for over $2000.  I like my Ellison (is is a 4-5).  I estimate it gives about 85% of the fuel savings as you'd get with fuel injection.  About 1 gph improvement over a standard Marvel carb.
