Hello everyone. My name is Jean and thanks to J. Matcho, i now have an account. I have been a frequent visitor for a long time

and it was time to join. What brings me here is my fascination for anything experimental, especially the long eze. That same fascination and a huge dose of luck put a project on my way and i am now looking forward to complete it. In my opinion this build is about 90% complete on the airframe. it is a plans built long, sitting on gear, nose has quite a beefy electric actuator on it, and turns out the main is the Drybread system. it came with many, many redundant parts including 1 or 2 roncz cannards, 2 sets of wings, i also have a few canopies. a  performance propellers 3 bladed prop was custom made, and with the engine mount it will get a O320 on the back. 3 sets of cowlings also came with. It is for sure a very interesting project, and one that will be amazing once finished, but i know itll be a lot of work. I look forward to listen and learn from all the experience here, and to help anyone who needs help. I am an A&P and almost a private pilot, i live in addison, TX, and always happy to help.

Hi Jean, thanks for sharing your project with us. Sounds like it is at 90% complete, 90% to go, huh? ;)
An O-320 Long with the Drybread retracts should be very nice indeed!

hey guys. really cool to have a chat going already. 90% to go sounds right, but predictable. very little fixing and much finishing to go. the gear is installed and can be retracted however the reaction cylinder is not installed yet. I wish I could replace that for an all mechanical system, but I just found out it takes a lot of pull to retract that thing, hence it works well with gravity to overcome a failure I guess... I'll try and post pictures very soon.

You are welcome Jean... and I was wondering what time it was in France.  Silly me to assume you were in France.

 

Welcome to the forum and I look forward to following your project.  You may be able to sell those extra parts to fund some of your needs.

Jon, thanks again for answering and setting up the account, very happy to be here.

HA! I get it everyday. I make about a dollar per flight crew when they try to guess where im from, my father side is from France though. talking about money, not a bad idea. there's plenty to sell, i guess I'll document it and post it accordingly around here.

With the pending forum upgrade I am looking for an upgrade to the classifieds / For Sale section here. I have some items to sell myself.
