Sales I've seen

Recommended Posts

This E-racer project first seen here over a year ago at $15K, then $11.5K, then $9.5K relisted again at $9.5.  Very reasonable at the price with most of the big parts done.  I imagine he would take a bit less if you showed up with cash.  Centerspar and molded strakes in other pics.

Plainfield is just 15 minutes down the road from me, if anyone really wants me to chase down more information.  There was a Long-EZ (maybe the same one?) posted several months ago with a Plainfield address, but I think it was hangared in Morris, which is more like 45 minutes from me.

Almost anyone could take a better picture of the instrument panel.

In the picture of the entire airplane, not the excess stuff: carts, etc. 😟

The easiest way is to google search "site:craigslist.org [your item]" or if you have selected an aviation section for one city, keep clicking new cities and it will show their aviation sections.  Yeah, you can waste gobs of time with that one.  😞

 

Another option is https://www.searchtempest.com/    There is a version for Canada too.

Kent -- A public thanks for the recent private message and for posting here your continued effort to keep up with the market.  My re-entry into the world of aircraft ownership is at the point of acceleration without velocity (pun not intended).  Medical is renewed and my banker/bride of 30 years says go for it.  After I square away things like insurance (does anyone have the insurance presentation given by Ryszard at RR recently?) and tend to some other issues, I'll consider myself to be in the "serious buyer" category.  Ground school at RAFE is on my Christmas list. 

A public plea while I'm at it.  I'd be super interested in flying in a Cozy 4.  Really looking for a 4-seat canard, but I am turned-off by the center yoke on the Velocity (I drive most-times with my left hand, even though I am right-handed.  It seems that one's dominant hand would be preferred for button-pushing and knob-twisting).  And I'd prefer the economy of a 4-cylinder. I live in Maryland and would be happy to travel pretty much anywhere east of the Mississippi to lay hands on one before the next RR fly-in.

I have only flown in a Velocity twice.  Once in front, once in back.  The back seat was very roomy compared to a Cozy.  I didn't get much time to compare in the front seat but it seemed to me that Velocitys land rather fast.  OTOH, you don't have to worry about tip-backs and parking on the nose.  I think you'd get used to the center stick and left-hand switchology--or you'd just switch hands or fly in the right seat.

Check out the airport accommodations in your area.  Hangars are tight everywhere.  Around here (Charlotte), the waiting lists are 25-60 names long.  The FAA is not doing it's job to make sure federally-assisted airports accommodate single-engine aircraft.  A grass strip-capable airplane has more options.  The Glastar and Bearhawk models interest me.  They are nearly as fast as the average canard.

Ryszard had Tracey Martin at the Oshkosh presentation.  She helped me get my VariEze insurance.

Forgive me is this inquiry is unwelcome but you seem to be open with your opinions here.  What do you think of or know about the Corvair powered mark 2 dragonfly listed on barnstormers?


I’m looking at getting a PPL and thinking a small experimental like this might be more interesting than puttering along in a 150/152 while I learn and build hours.  
 

I don’t need something perfect, I’m an automotive mechanic by trade so small repairs and engine work are welcome but I’m not a composites or airframe expert so it seems wise to ask around before I travel and pay for expert inspection just to be told the obvious.   
 

will someone here be kind enough to explain how I’m being completely stupid.

Who me!?  🙂   I'd be glad to give you my opinion but it'd be a long one.  Give me a call (text first) and I'd be glad to talk to you Seven Oh Four, Seven Nine Six, Oh Nine One Nine.  Overall, I think you'd find it better to stick to a certified airplane for training because instructors and examiners are used to them, they know how to fly them, and they trust those junky spam-cans.  Perhaps you could partner with a couple of guys to buy a trainer and sell it when you're all done with it.  It would also give you a chance to learn the maintenance on a certified airplane (with the cooperation of a kindly A&P/IA).  See particularly 14 CFR 61.45 for what aircraft is required   https://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/14/61.45

I would look more kindly on something like a Zenith for training but you would still want to find an instructor willing to instruct and insure the airplane can do the maneuvers (soft-, short-field takeoff, stalls) that are required for the checkride.  However, I imagine the FAA would want you to use a Cessna/Piper/Diamond type for a checkride.  Just a guess.

https://www.faa.gov/training_testing/testing/acs/media/private_airplane_acs_change_1.pdf

I have never flown a Dragonfly but those airplanes with the wheels on the canard tips have a reputation for squirrely handling and many were built with close-set main gear.  The Corvair engine has a weak crankshaft nose but there are mods for that and good support by William Wynne  https://flycorvair.net/

That plane is very heavy.  It needs a crankshaft.  I would suggest updating it to use the current Wynn designed parts. Then you would need to fix the broken wingtip, rudder, and tail spring. The gear on that plane are not on the tips but are the MK2 spring gear.  It still wouldn't be a trainer as Kent said.

This morning.  I thought we had seen this one before but seller Jamie Hicks has sold a couple other airplanes seen in this thread.  No pics.

Also this Q2 looking a bit sad (pics 1,2) but the price is right with engine & prop.  More pics in the ad.  "Purchased, covered, placed in hangar where it sat for 5 years, [now for sale]".  A man's gotta know his limitations.  🙂

Finally, this seller back with his Long-ez project.  No pics, no price, same ad, no buyer.  I wonder why?  https://www.canardzone.com/forums/topic/21972-sales-ive-seen/?do=findComment&comment=67078
