Recently I had a lucky opportunity to take a ride in a Cozy MKIV. This is a variant of the Rutan Long EZ design. There is room for two in front side by side with dual controls. I had a chance to fly the plane for a minute or two when the pilot let me take the stick. The responsiveness of the plane was just like a jet fighter.
If anyone buys one of these ...The 60 sized Richmodel Long Ez I highly recomend that you either weld the elevator arm on the supplied rod or avoid it and use a servo mounted in the side of the fuse like I did. Lucky for me the weld failed when I was range testing rather than in the sky.
Theres a few of these up for sale on ebay right now and for $125. it is a great deal.
