Title: Hangar RASH, canard
Post by: nmflyboy on August 01, 2007, 11:44:01 AM
Hello fellow pilots.  I just bought a Varieze last week.  It was in flying condition.  It needs new brakes, disks, tires.  Not too hard eh?  Well I had the canard off and slid under the plane for storage, after taking the wheel off the gear slipped off the stand (1") and the whole plane started bouncing.  It tilted back.The prop was vertical and it poked right through the top skin of the canard!    :x   Can someone fix it?  The plane is at VNY.

By the way, I have the canard off because I am installing a Dynon EFIS!

I will post pics later, it hit midspan, trailing edge, 3" crack, scratched the elevator, nicked the prop, grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

 :cry:

Hi nmflyboy

I usually do not answer emails that are not signed with one's
REAL name.   Well, this is short.

Call bill Oertel at 909-738-8300......He probably is very busy but
maybe he can help.

Be careful, I let my Longeze flip TWICE.    :(

Try to avoid the 2nd time.    :)
