Default Taking a MKIV project to finish it

Hello everyone.

I'm Jose. Originally from Colombia. Now living in Texas. A few hours away from getting my Private Pilot License. I had built a series or RC / U-Control / Free fligth aircrafts. I always wanted to build my very own airplane, debating between Veloctiy and Cozy. Then, today I had the change to get hand on an abandoned Cozy MKIV project auctioned on eBay. I think it is #1033. I plan to pick it up next week from Oshkosh.

Fuse has been put together an is standing on wheels, it is almost a kit, that will save me a little time and money. Then I'll be asking a lot of questions.

So, it sounds like you bought it? It could save you alot of time.
Do you have any way to have it inspected by an experienced Cozy person?

Good luck with the new project! I hope you find that it is what you expect when you pick it up.

As Andrew suggests, it would be a good idea to have someone experienced take a look at the project for you.

Just West of you at Taylor, TX is where we have two SARLhttp://sportairrace.org/sarl/ races each year. I'm nearly always entered in the race with my Long EZ and sometimes there are some other canards there that you could check out. The schedule for the 2017 races should be published in another month or so.
