This Aerocanard FG airframe today on B-stormers.  Offered at a discount from his posted quickbuild price ($39,900)   https://aerocad.com/

I do not hear of people building these much.  Nothing wrong with them and at less than $35K and all the labor to get to the QB stage, the price seems fairly attractive.

I noticed this ad on ebay today:  It is probably the same as the Open-EZ plans that are available on this site but it might be handy to have on a CD if you just want a cheap source to study the construction.  These days, even original plans are a little dated.  There have been many good ideas and improvements to the EZ since RAF closed shop that have not be incorporated in the plans but the basic design is still quite viable.  Follow-on owners would probably do well to have a copy of the plans, too.  [FYI, Burt said publicly a few years ago that he did not object to persons building from copied plans but he hoped they would not call it a Long-EZ in order to reduce his potential liability.]

I spoke with Mr Parker on the phone a few minutes ago. He told me that he built this Eze and first flew it in 2005. Currently he's got so many airplanes and projects that he had to disassemble this one to make hangar space for the others.  Presently the wings, canards, engine and canopy are removed.  Last flown in 2017.

This Long-ez tub today, Barnstormers,  No pics.  Fair price with the gear, foam and glass:  LONGEZ KIT BOATSTAGE W/GEAR • $2,500 • AVAILABLE FOR SALE • Longez kit, in boatstage, w/foam to almost finish, fiberglass cloth, prints w/serial #, have pics • Contact Ricky Escovedo, Owner -  located Oroville, CA United States • Telephone: 5109108536 • Posted January 23, 2020

This EZ on Trade-A-Plane with O-360.  He must have a ton of lead in the nose.  Rather ambitious price IMO considering engine time, somewhat dated avionics, and  little things that need fixing.  N916TB. 

Also a Gee Bee!  No price.

This EZ today on Barnstormers (pic 1).  Couple more pics in the ad: Cowls, pre-formed NACA.  Has a GU canard and short nose but those could be changed.  A good start on an EZ.  Think of it as a Quickbuild fuselage for $1500-2K.  The seller probably wants more but compare to the last airplane listed here for $2500.

LONGEZE • FOR SALE • Unfinished Long EZ Over $10,000 spent. 49% of the work is done. Air frame is mostly complete. Includes wheels and brakes. Does not have engine, instruments or radios.

Correction:  I previously posted this was in Colorado.  It's Ohio.  Likely N47VE.  The owner owns several canard airplanes.  A 1600 hour engine is basically a run-out but if it has good compression and is not making metal, it could be nursed a while longer.  Don't know much about Continentals.

I saw this BD-5 on Ebay today which reminded me of a Peanuts cartoon where Snoopy thinks thoughtfully (yes, a dog can think thoughtfully)  "Sometimes we do smart things and sometimes we do dumb things.  One of the smartest things I every did:  I never bought a Nehru jacket".  One of the dumbest things I ever did was buy a BD-5 project (twice!).  Here's a chap on ebay today who wants to get his hand out of the BD-5 jar but he is asking $18K so I suspect he will will be stuck a bit longer.   What interests me is that he wants to sell it with no documents--not even a bill of sale!  It has Canadian registry, which could likely be imported but the inspector/DAR will undoubtedly want to examine the chain of title to make sure it was not just hijacked from a Canadian hangar.  Anyway, the ad had some good photos of the drive system.  Glad mine is gone.  If you ever want to buy a BD-5, lie down and take a nap until the urge goes away.

Seen on FB today.   Cozy III with a Subaru . . . in Puerto Rico.  At $15K, it is likely to stay there, too.
