  1. No website or anything that I am aware of. I'll try to get back in touch with him. The only other detail I can recall right now is that he had planned to actuate the canopies hydraulically as well as all-3 gear.
  2. Link to a couple of photos. I met this one and it's builder around 10 years ago, it was almost structurally complete then, but unfinished and the engine (Mazda Renesis) was just a core on the floor. I haven't managed to visit again since, as it is a long way from home. As noted in the link, this is the builder's third Long (he sold the others). His second, ZK-LET, you may have seen photos of, it is a jet now. I believe this one is also slightly stretched.
  3. Wing and canard polars are something like this. These are for solid 2D shapes - no separate elevator or slot.
  4. For me, I just keep an eye on the New Posts. There isn't too much new content in general, so I keep up with content that way exclusively.
  5. 2nd time it's gone down, but first time was overhead Valdosta and he landed safely. This is also a 'safe' landing, I guess, glad he is OK.
  6. Curious. All you really need is a short length of plastic tubing running to the outside that is connected via a valve to the ashes container. The suction will soon vacuum them out! On the other hand, I have heard simply opening a window in a C-172 and dumping them out is not a good idea unless you want to spread the ashes throughout the interior of the airplane and occupants' lungs. 😷
  7. Sorry to hear of your trouble, Bert. You can likely get $300 for them, it's just a matter of the right person finding you at the right time. Maybe someone from here will contact you, who knows, otherwise yes, Ebay works too.
  8. Just enough to maintain it's shape, right? It's just a fairing? Use a bit or core in select areas for additional stiffness as required. I believe some folks have used straws (with a lay of cloth over them) to add stiffness.

    Looks like the poster removed their content, leaving us hanging. Annoying.
  10. As you say, the prices vary considerably. Spend some time looking through the 'Sales I've Seen' thread you posted on to see what the going prices are in various conditions. Until you know more about the current condition etc., the price is anyone's guess. $80k might do it, or it might be substantially more if it's been updated and well maintained. If it is in need of an overhaul, it might sell for a lot less than $80k.
  11. Correct. LE, Cozy etc. simply bolt the wings to the center section with 3 bolts per side. There is Al in the hardpoints, but they are buried and protected.
  12. I'll second that. As a subscriber myself, I can say that the price is more affordable than ever (digital edition, especially good for those of us outside the USA) and the content is very worthwhile.
  13. Would work great at an airshow if the aircraft was in grey primer, and maybe some Hellfire replicas instead of external fuel pods. Put a sign next to it with some nonsense about close support and optional pilot, and you have the next big thing!
  14. Having operated primarily in training environments, leaning usually gets totally ignored unless flying high enough to gain noticeable power. Poor engines. Prior to my last check-ride, I flew a practice flight, during which I leaned carefully (despite remaining relatively low). During the subsequent walk-around with the examiner, he noted the healthy colour of the exhaust pipes. 😁
  15. Never a happy day to have your aircraft damaged. I think if I ever found my aircraft would not rotate, I'd abort right back to the ramp and figure that out, not go back and try to force it into the air! Something is wrong, and the airplane is talking to you!
