  1. Dynafocal Mount for long ez for sale. Appears to be new old stock and is drilled for mounting to extrusions. $450 plus shipping.
  2. Thanks to all for your inputs. I went ahead and installed my canard tips per plans and will probably mod once I start flying. Hopefully next summer.
  3. What are the fliers finding for elevator defection at their max cruise speed?
  4. I am trying to find who the supplier(s) for the nose landing gear casting are. So far I have only found Jack Wilhelmson. Is he the only supplier now?
  5. Purchased new bow from Featherlite. Post no longer valid
  6. I am in and out of internet locations so sorry for the slow reply. What i have is the standard Long Ez nose gear retraction mechanism. Never used, gear and sprocket are just as received from Brock. Manual system
  7. To fill in the blanks, I am retired and living LArkspur ,CO. I went to work for McDonnell Douglas and Boeing as a test pilot after a 25 year career in the military, USMC. Loved the Long Eze when it came out and built N33X with first flight in 1987. N33X is a long nose O-320 powered chariot. LOL. Originally had an O-235, but got involved the RACE events and had the “need for speed” bug bite. i was not flying for awhile due to cardiac issues the FAA didn’t like. Glad the rules have changed. Currently building a Cozy MK4. I love flying, but I also really enjoy the satisfaction of building. My Cozy, I guess I will need a new name, is wider and longer since I prefer to not be quite as “cozy” as Nat made it. I have several inches and a few pounds on Nat, LOL. Hope to meet many of you at events to come.
  8. Some of us are in both the have built and are flying group as well as tackling a new build.
  9. If anyone has abandoned their project and want to recoup some money, I am looking for a main landing gear bow for a Cozy MK4.
  10. Jon Matcho provided excellent advice. This isn’t a once in a while type of project. Folks that treat it that way never finish. Be prepared to spend between 1000 and 2000 hours completing it. The wide variation is dependent on your abilities to do hands on projects and how Much “extra” you decide to do. And one more thing, it is a project that you will be proud of forever. It will open advenures you never dreamed of. I have never met anyone who completed their plane that regretted it.
  11. Parting out an incomplete project. Main gear, wheels, brakes, nose gear, nose wheel, all fitting for nose gear and retract are available. Reply if interested.
  12. Vary Eze canopy for sale. Never installed but exterior frame is glassed. Interior is still foam. Located near Denver, prefer local pick up but shipping could be arranged, just expensive.
  13. Over the years I have acquired three sets of Long Eze plans. One I purchased from Burt and built N33X from, IO-320 Long Ez, and the other two from project that I purchased along the way. As far as I know the other two have not been built from but all are in fair, but used condition. If you are still interested please contact me. I also have a lot of parts from the two projects, enough to build a complete Long, but I am parting them out to builders that might need them.
