    Want to buy: Rutan Vari-Viggen plans

    I think your friend should look at the Vari-EZ as it is only a 100 hp canard. Unless your friend is an aero engineer, advise hime to stick to designs that are working.

    Want to buy: Rutan Vari-Viggen plans

    Hi Karoliina I would advise your friend to look at other canard aircraft, not the Vari-Viggen Have a look at web site like http://www.ez.org/ http://www.eracer.org/ Cheers Don

    Small canard design single seater

    Hi You can not put that plane on this forum its a normal plane. It also has the canard in the wrong place ha ha. It must be very cold in Finland now. It was when i was in Helsiky many years ago at this time. Get a canard plane as they fly better i feel than normail plans. Well i think im just going to carry on building my Cozy 4 and leard from the costruction prosess. Have a look at this http://qmain.tripod.com/raptor.htm

    Small canard design single seater

    Hi karoliina's Thank you for that As for the Rotax 503 and other 2 stroke rotaxes, it is cheep engine and reliable if you manage it. I have many flight houres with them, Good engine managment is needed with 2 stroke engines I was thinking of a cheap,fastbuild kit. ill look into it after doing my cozy4

    Small canard design single seater

    Dear All There have been small single seat canard design aircraft like the Quicky. but i have never seen a single seat canard design that is like the Long-EZ or Cozy. So hear is my Design Brife for one Single seat canard design like Long-Ez fast build Powered by 503 Rotax Pilot weight to 110kg Fast Good visability I would like to hear other peoples thoughts on it. My thoughts are that it may get builders to build composit canard aircraft. I am not an aircraft engineer so do not feel i could design my self.
