Hangar Flying / Re: Long ez or Varieze?

I built/own a Long EZ, so I may be biased.  I would suggest that the Long is a better match for the majority.  40% more wing area, designed around the Lycoming instead of Continental, roughly twice the fuel capacity, better wing attach (my opinion) method, better resale value, Burt said starter is OK.

I wish I could have been there with you "big boys" to hear you discuss this big boy stuff.....

Very good decision to go away from the Subaru.

Haha. It's no doubt your neighbors are even more worried about you now.

I'm always glad to help.  Sure you should start a thread about your aircraft.  Tell us what you plan on doing.

What aircraft is this for?  Vari, Long, etc.  It would be best if you could provide the P/N too, to avoid confusion.

I sent you a PM.  Hope that worked.

If you are ever in the STL area when we have VFR weather and can get our schedules together, I would be happy to give you a ride.  WARNING - very few in your position that I have given rides to have been able to turn their backs on the canard design.  :-)
 I can provide references for this statement!

Great to see you again Rick and Bill!  It was a fun filled weekend.

I use the modified Craftsman 1/4" ratchet on my nosegear mechanism.  It has served me well.  I can't remember for sure, but believe that Curt Smith sold the product originally.

I've heard too many bad things about the Sky-tec starters.  My B&C has been flawless for 1200+ hours.

I hope you get better responses.  Here is a photo of my plane on the ramp on Friday before it got crowded.  We'll see how my first attempt at attaching a photo goes....

OK, it didn't go too well.  I got a message that the upload folder is full.

I googled to find a link for Vance's gages and found an old post of mine on post #11 here -  The email address there is still a good one for Vance.  On August 23rd, he posted that he will be out of touch for three weeks.  Email him after that time for more info on his gages.  The link above has a link that shows how James Redmon did the gage installation in his Grand Champion Berkut.
