French Long-Ez aerobatics group
« on: September 25, 2007, 11:59:22 AM »
The other night I was playing around on You Tube looking at aviation videos and a 5 minute clip of that French group came up. Over the years I have heard about them, but until now I had never actually seen their routine. I must say it was impressive.

Anybody out there know the details on their birds? What “improvements” did they do to allow their planes to do those maneuvers? What G loads are they sustaining?

Later on I’ll find the video again and post a link. It really was neat.

Another video that popped up was of a Long-Ez at the Marysville Airshow in 06’. I could not make out the tail number in the video, but it was also rather impressive to watch. I’ll see if I can find that video again as well.

Yep, found the same website as I did. However, no habla French. Although I am a big fan of their fries!

Hello,

Concerning the mods they've made, these are mainly the same as Klaus : High compression pistons (on O-200), electronic ignition, Hal Hunt exhaust pipes, ... + some aerodynamics mods like Klaus spinner, wheel pants, shorter canards, vortex gen, flow fences, wider carbon fiber ailerons, ...

See you  :wink:
