I need help. I have a Long Ez in the UK and have completed the airtest to increase the MAUW to 1600 lbs. The aircraft is fitted with VGs on the canard and wing (I bought it like this). However, a local difficulty with the authorities means I have to submit paperwork to regularise the VG set-up. I also have to come up with specific CG calculations with min front seat weight. Despite the aircraft having done three test pilot flights, I have to prove the safety aspects of the installation and the effects on 'stalling' speed - it nods at 50 kts. I found that Micro Aerodynamics declare, and issue a placard, of airworthiness provided no more than 5 VGs are missing. I can supply photos of the installation but am short of a suitable/professional diagram of placement and chord etc detail that would satisfy the scrutineers  Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Whilst I enjoy my Long EZ (and just fitting an electric nose-wheel), it really needs a reasonably long hard strip. We have a shortage of them here. Now being built to the north-west of Cambridge, England, is a new canard, single-seat, that will operate off 300 yards. It's called an E-Go. Have a look at It doesn't have the legs of the Long EZ, and it can't carry talking ballast, but will be fun to fly. It is factory built, all carbon fibre with a Wankel-style rotary engine, and for those of us with limited spare time and skill, it is a exciting opportunity. The test aircraft has displayed to an enthusiastic audience. I'm sure it will make it to the US in due course.
