Hmmmm... that in and by itself is a strange perspective.... why would “Experimental “ be a depreciating term? Considering that ALL product development and every aspect of top performance is rooted in “Experimental “....

Re: COZY: For sale or trade: Cozy 3

Marlon,
 Good Afternoon.  I have been watching the bantor of you post and wish to extend some of my knowledge of the last 40 years. 
I currently have 6 owners with canard aircraft I support.  The reason they want to use me as their go to guy is that they have some interest in maintaining their aircraft and like you want a capable and dependable aircraft.  We have made an agreement that I put the aircraft in great condition without any issues and they neer let anyone else work on it unless I am directing it and that goes for them working on it as well.
I will make it clear I no longer have the time to care or refurbish any other aircraft but I still want to pass to you some knowledge that should be useful as you go forward. 
The first item is a little bit of ego shrinking on the part of the owner to admit he needs help to make his or her aircraft trouble free so it will be like my clients airplanes... They literally only need to maintain the oil and fuel level and ensure they have enough air in the tires and there are no pools of fluid at each main gear before each flight.
They sought me out and I made sure the aircraft performed as it should with no leaks, no overheating and insured all the mistakes made by the previous builder and owners were corrected.  Some corrections took months to get rid of the problems but they each consider it worth the cost for having a canard airplane you can just get in and go.

There has to be someone with many years of EZ experience that could assist you in making this happen for you. 
One thing:  If or when you should get your airplane in this kind of shape the resale value is higher and it is EZ to sell. 
It also gives you the ability to be "more about the family or your business" rather than the maintenance guy for Cozy NXXX.

I really don't like working on the COZY 3 because of the hassle of working in the back seat area but they are a pretty good airplane if setup properly. 
I hope this is something that you're able to do.  Also, if you find "a guy" for your plane have him get those wheel pants on there.  They make a world of difference in climb and cruise speeds plus the elevator will ride higher because there is no longer any drag count below the wings.  Also, listen to him if he as many hours of flying canard aircraft, he can teach you things!

Regards and Best of Luck,

Dale

As I've mentioned, I pulled the ad after a change of heart on trading up to a Bonanza.
I was getting frustrated with still not having the cooling or oil leak solved in my fourth season of flying.
After going for a really enjoyable flight on Sunday morning and considering the doubling or tripling of my costs to operate a Bonanza, and the legal liability that I can't eliminate from selling an airplane that I built, I decided I just need to push through to get my remaining squawks worked out.  With the Cozy 3 I'll never be able to do a long flight with 3, but it will suffice for cross countries with two, and 80% of my flying will continue to be solo anyway.  13gph would really sap the fun out of my solo flights.

I chose a low price that was reflective of squawks to be addressed by the buyer and to motivate the explicit transfer of operational liability to the new owner, both of which I believe would effectively limit my market to canard repairmen or A&Ps.  It was also roughly what I have invested in it, which is low because I took a risk on buying a 20 year old project, a calculated risk that I think has paid off.


Re: COZY: For sale or trade: Cozy 3

Legal liability—think about it:  First the buyers of Experimental airplanes are generally people who accept the (small) risks.   Full disclosure of aircraft condition, the fact that it is a non-certificated airplane built by an amateur out of non-TSO’d parts and maintained by an amateur are all good defenses.   Then if the buyer works on the airplane he leaves himself open to blame for his own screwups    Lawyers realize it will be an uphill climb to prove you deceived the buyer about a homebuilt airplane and  disprove your contention that the buyer’s lack of skill or poor maintenance was not the cause of his own  injury.   And there being no rich engine or vacuum pump Manufacturer insurance millions to collect, the lawyer will refuse to waste his time.   This is why worrying about sellers liability is equivalent to worrying about being killed by a meteor strike.

Cooling and oil leak problems can be solved if you post some pics and info.

I guess it requires critical thinking to go from asking $30k for a 200 mph canard to a 20 year old 200 mph certified Bonanza that you pay over $200,000 to buy.  I’m just saying we shouldn’t give these airplanes away.

Unfortunately this AC doesn't work for flying my family, due more to my dimensions and my passengers' agility than to the Cozy, although honestly the Cozy 3 is really is better suited to early 20th century sized people (like Nat Puffer).

It's great for me solo (I'm 6', 210 lbs.), but I need a comfortable alternative to commercial flying for my family of 3 particularly during Covid, so I'm looking to get a fast flying station wagon, maybe a Bonanza, and I can't have a 3rd aircraft.

 

I am only advertising on the Cozy and Canard forums, and the price is reflective of the fact that this is a flying project and I'm going to need a buyer who is capable of working on the airplane and is willing to contractually indemnify me of liability.  

The biggest squawks are: I still don't have adequate cooling on cyl #4, it has a nuisance oil leak that I haven't been able to find, cabin heat is anemic, and I haven't installed wheel pants yet.

What is the cost of a production airplane that goes this fast?  Try that for a comparison of price.  I’ve never understood why builders want to give these airplanes away at such low prices.

I agree that $30K would be near the low end for just about any flying Cozy III. You just have to look a lot of them and compare quality, engine, etc.

I am only advertising on the Cozy and Canard forums, and the price is reflective of the fact that this is a flying project and I'm going to need a buyer who is capable of working on the airplane and is willing to contractually indemnify me of liability.  

The biggest squawks are: I still don't have adequate cooling on cyl #4, it has a nuisance oil leak that I haven't been able to find, cabin heat is anemic, and I haven't installed wheel pants yet.

Canard Calendar - August

Erlend Moen <erlend@...>
 

The August Canard Desktop Calendar is ready for download.

As always: Thanks a lot for the many beautiful pictures I have received so far. I’m always looking for new pictures, if you have pictures to share, please send them over to me. I need as large resolution as possible. My bandwidth is no problem, so don’t be afraid to send over large images!

 

Safe flying (and building)!

 

Here is the link: http://ljosnes.no/cozy/canard-calendar

 

PS: If the new calendar doesn’t show up, it’s probably because the website is cached in your web browser. Try to hit F5 to reload the page if this happens.

Hi Bob, If I ever get up to your neck of the woods, I'll beg you for a ride in your plane for gentle aerobatics. I'm too chicken to do by myself!

Jose, that's exactly right, A barrel roll is 1 G all the way around if done properly after the pull up and you can't "feel" it. When my wife was more enthusiastic about flying with me than she is now, on cross country's I'd practice barrel rolls while she was sleeping in the back seat. Wouldn't wake her up either. A way to "cheat" is to push forward on the stick (progressively) as you go inverted so you're (almost but not quite) going negative. That way you don't have to pull the nose up as far and finish the roll less nose down. When my niece was going through the Air Force Academy she belonged to the glider club but had never flown a powered plane. When she was home on leave in summer I'd take her flying. After some practice she could do rolls from the back seat just as good as I could from the front. Now she flies C 140 (Super Herc's)  over the Atlantic refueling fighters on their way to Yerp. In the photo I AM going negative but I have a flop tube in the sump for inverted flight.

Ok, ok , I was casually thinking "gentleman aerobatics". So what is the perceived g load on the top of a well executed barrel roll? Should feel the same as in level flight (1G),no?

Jose, what are 1 G aerobatics? You exceed 1 G just pulling the nose up to do a barrel roll. A loop (or a cuban eight) is around 4 G's. EZ's are fine for "gentleman aerobatics". Not so fine for inverted flat spins, etc. LOL.

Congrats to Kyle for a nice video showing off his airshow Long-EZ on the Flightchops youtube channel. Its good to bring exposure to the type.  The type was never recommended for aerobatics, but I've seen several Vari's and Long's doing 1 G aerobatics. Harmless enough, if properly trained as Kyle obviously is.
