Building of my Cozy Mark IV #1037. Over the next several / many years I will build before your eyes a
masterpiece, and if that is not possible just a good fun safe aircraft. :-)
And some other stuff I hope you find fun or useful....
Status: Plans Purchased: 04-2002 Built workshop that year. Started Project 01-2003 Scheduled completion 2015 - 18
Started working on the electrical chap23 engine
I've thought through the build process, decided to complete the electrical as much as possible and then go on to finish paint.
I've added a link "Interests page" to a video about a Cozy I liked, hope you enjoy it too.
2017 Goal is to have it ready for test by Q1 2018. I know it's a stretch goal.
Update to Chap 23 working the engine systems, lots to do!
Order my MT prop. I know that's a lot for 2015. got my MT prop see chapter 23 for pictures.
Currently working Chap-21, 22, 23, 24,25.
Chap-21, 22, 23, 24,25. build goes forward I will revisit these chapters as required.
See Chap. 23 Purchased my engine from Aero sport power
Total hours worked so far. 1955 hours up to chap-22,23, 24,25 Counting build time only.
Problem with your hands / skin when it comes in contact with the epoxy. Will it started with me, at first I had no problems. I was wearing the latex gloves and everything (I thought) was fine. Until one night my hands began to itch and then came the blister. You guest it I've developed a histamine reaction to the epoxy, what to do First I checked the can of epoxy and found that white vinegar stop the chemical reaction, second I switched to Nitrile gloves. To protect my arms I put ply-9 gel on, you can get this from Wicks. So the process is like this: Gel, Gloves when finished wash off the Gel and then put on white vinegar I wet a paper towel, that solved it for me. I hope this helps other builders.
Engine from AeroSportPower chap. 23
Got the engine mount from CG Products Chap. 23
Aero Sport will be the engine for me, I like the IO-375B1B 205HP Constant Speed, I will use a MT 3 blade propeller. Yes, I know it's big bucks but 90% of the aircraft is about the power train. We will see when I get there....
