One thought on “Coraggio Long Ez – Details by Chapter

  1. Look forward to starting the build process. Some really outstanding Long EZs out there, many with helpful web sites. Where did I put that wish list!

    I watched Glen Waters build his wonderful Berkut. He has a background at the highest level in Motor Racing. He recons that for a modest amount of extra weight he can make the fuselage as safe in an accident as a single seater racing car. Using the latest techniques with carbon fibre need it be any heavier?

    Best wishes,
    James Boswell.
