Hi yall. I bought Joe Dubner's Long EZ from Independence, Oregon. I'm looking for someone generous enough to give me a ride in their Cozy IV or velocity(?) I don't need to land it all the way to the ground, but i'd like to fly some approaches to make sure I'm not going to crazy my EZ on the first landing. I got to fly the Long-EZ I bought from the back seat, and felt good about the handling. I feel even better about the airframe and A little about me: I'm a young engineer in central coast California developing unmanned aerial vehicles. Truthfully, only 20% of my job is designing, because I spend 80% of my time running the company's internal machine shop where I have a passion in helping designers make their parts economical to machine. I'm also a glider pilot and have a glider that I keep in Avenal CA for most of the year. I'm at about 170tt, which is a bit low to fly a high performing EZ, but I've transitioned to single seat aircraft 3 times in the past without problems and have a history of passing check-rides and not damaging aircraft. If you're in California or near it, and have the willingness and time to give me a ride in the next week or two, please give me a ring or a message. I'll leave my phone number here for a couple of days: 805-503-0264 Thanks, Eric
Is there any owners of a Long-EZ in Tennessee, N. Alabama or S. Kentucky? Do't worry I'm not going to steal it. I just would like to see one up close. I am trying to decide between a Cozy or a Long-EZ and concerned about the 'fit'.
I'm new to the forums, so I hope I have this in the correct place. I've got a strong pitch trim motor, that runs on a lead screw into some kind of cylinder/shock. My trim motor "ratchets", sounds like a cordless drill when it reaches max torque. I can move the cylinder by hand, but it's pretty stiff. So I screwed it all the way down and cleaned the screw and put a little oil on it, but it didn't help. It has safety wire on both ends and overall it looks like it's seen better days. I'd prefer to maybe disassemble and thoroughly clean it, but I have this vision of the shock shooting out and me never getting this back together again! I thought I could replace the cylinder, but I have no clue on what it is or where to find it. I tried to go to www.strongpitchtrim.com but got some odd website. ANY help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance
