  1. I saw that this time around. I never noticed it before. So now the SQ kit is $20,000. I think I can get it delivered for the buyer and include delivery in the price. Just depends on where buyer is located.
  2. Yeah I realized that but this forum doesn't allow edit or removal of your own post for some reason. So yeah its 20K asking now.

    These numbers are from Paul Lee's SQ RG. He has about 200 hours on it. The kit I have is set up for an IO-360 and not Franklin like Pauls. I was planning on using a 2 blade Hertzler. Empty weight: 1410 lbs (1394 lbs w/o 9qt oil) Engine: rebuilt 6A-350-C2 Franklin 6 block, approximately 200 HP. Prop: 66" 3 blade, IVO magnum in-flight adjustable Fuel Capacity: 35 gal. (incl 2.25 gal sump tank) Landing gear: 3 retractable The following are at 1850lbs & 117 CG (values change with weight and/or CG position) - Climb: 2000ft/min (105kts, 2000 dens alt). - Ceiling: 18K+ feet. (still doing 200+ft/min) - Best glide ratio: approx 19:1 (105kts, 3000 dens alt) - Fuel efficiency: best about 5 gal/hr near 120 kts. - Canard stall: 66kts. - Takeoff distance: approx 1500ft, rotate at 80kts (IVO electric adjustable prop.) - Landing rollout distance: approx 2000ft (about best I can do and prefer 4000ft + runways) - Speed:180kias, 3000 dens alt., 2800 rpm.

    New SQ

    Not really sure. I'm not that set on selling it. At the time when I made the deal to purchase I was set on building again. I didn't want to back out on the sale so I figured I'd just buy it and figure out what to do with it later..Just figured if I got a good offer I would let it go and get out of the Airplane building hobby.
  7. Your right Steve, It is. With Dave's custom designed cowlings it really looks even better.And Paul Lee has gotten most if not all of the bugs worked out on the Main Gear and has his SQ operating nicely for almost 200 hours. Like Edge has pointed out the Seating set up needs some work. I planned on putting something more permanant in the AC and using the same dual stick setup as the Lancair with Engine controls in the center. Also extending the center keel all the way back to the firewal and to the Canard bulkhead to strengthen the fuselage. I placed the price high on this one because I was 100% on keeping it and building it as I always wanted one, but My Lancair is getting ready for test flights next week and I might not be interested in doing another project. So my heart is not set on selling the SQ and will keep the price high until I am 100% on giving it up. The workmanship on this one is really nice.
  8. Edge, Your not in the market for an airplane so why are you even in this section. Yes the seats are included. If your the type of guy who can only build an airplane one way and without the almighty "factory support" then an SQ isn't for you. Would I use the seats and the current installation. No. It doesn't take a genius to figure out they need some redesign. There are all sorts of things that can be done differently or custom to the builder. But hey, Cozy's never killed anyone.
  9. HAHA Spodman Your hilarious. I cant stop laughing. Wow, you should do some stand up.....good stuff.
  10. 4 place canard. Factory built wings, canard, fuselage, spar. Includes strake skins, cowlings and KLS Retract main gear and nose. Lots of work done already. Gullwing Doors. Engine mount for Lyc. 360. 30K o.b.o.

    New SQ

    As long as the inspection goes well I'm picking up an SQ2000 kit this weekend. Full kit with the KLS retracts not the Infinity. I still plan to install a rear seat bench but really its going to be a 2 place with large baggage area. I will try and start a progress thread on this build. One of the best looking canards out there in my opinion.
  12. How do we reduce the rotation speed on these canards? Any mods you can do to improve this area?
  13. Are you willing to sell me the info pack or make me a nice copied set? I will pay for it. I'd like to have one.
  14. Any body have some good photos of the SQ Prototype they can email me? Bryan
  15. Since its an airplane and you will be flying it. I'd inspect every single part on it down to every rivet or bolt. All metal for corrosion, cracks, poorly drilled holes, poorly bucked rivets etc. All nuts and bolts for corrosion and or re-used lock nuts. All composite parts for any delaminations, bubbles in the glass, or soft spots. Check the foam that is visible for deterioration or damage. Any hoses, fuel lines, brake lines should be replaced if over 10 years old. Or even if younger they may have fluid in them and are gunky. Id probably replace them anyway. Inspect all the parts that are not installed for currency and see if they were replaced by a newer design or were part of a service bulletin.
  16. Is the airfoil on the MKIV canard and wing different from the Long EZ? Is the span length different? What about elevator shape and ailerons?
  17. That Algae thing is pretty damn cool looking. Will be nice to see if he can make it fly successfully.
  18. Ok You want hours. I have at least 1,000 hours in the past year in filling, sanding, priming and fit and finishing. That does NOT include the time the interior guy spent making and installing that or the 50 hours the avionics tech has in installation of the wiring and avioinics. Oh and before I spent this 1,000 +++ hours finishing my plane it was 90-95% done. Bryan
  19. 90-95% done will take you 1 year of part time work. Thats my estimate. My Lancair was 95% done a year ago. I just ran the engine last week. Still tweaking things here and there but I have at least another month of part time work to get it flying.
  20. Does anybody have a list or know off hand which Lycoing IO360s if any can NOT be used in pushers? I have a 0-360 A1F6 I was considering using. It has the counterweighted crankshaft. Thanks Bryan
  21. Check out Barnstormers. There is a guy selling a gear up Cozy Mk3 with Infinity gear he says is undamaged and has nice wheels and brakes on it. All the parts. He also has a ton of Cozy MKIV parts premolded. Dont contact me im not the seller. Just posting it for you guys. HEY COZY FANS!!

  22. Anybody doing this in Southern CA? Camarillo CA to be exact?
  23. Anybody in Southern California available for builder assistance to come to my location and if so please email your pricing. vonjet@gmail.com
  24. wow 195K. That will never happen. I heard that plane is in pieces right now. I doubt it would pull 95K in the current condition. I doubt it would pull 85K in this market. But hey I could be wrong.
