I have just purchased a Long-EZ. N93EZ. 0235 LYC. I am still recovering from the experience. Burt Rutan is a genius.
My Long EZ (N600TD) was built in 1985 by Tom Duffy of Livermore, CA. It was bought from his estate in 1989 and transformed into a real fast moving machine that is a pure delight to fly. I have put 1250 hours on it. It was used to commute for three years from Livermore, CA to Edwards AFB and still resides in Livermore as a pleasure craft. It has an O-320 engine, Catto three blade prop, IFR, dual Jeff Rose ignition and does an easy 200 mph at 2650 RPM
Here is a copy of N94WD which took 7 years to build. It has an IO320 with electronic ignition. It also has a full engine analyzer, King KX155 with GS, Northstar M3 GPS and Terra XPDR. Also has autopilot with altitude hold, and an HSI. I have flown it coast to coast and currently has over 530 hours on it. I am installing a new canard and a longer nose to put heat to warm my toes.

I purchased Long-EZ N86WK from Willis "Joe" Kusy in September of 1997. Joe built her stock, straight & strong and she flies great. No plans to swap the O235-L2C for a larger engine. I've flown her to Florida twice (Sun-N-Fun 1998 and a snorkeling and camping trip in 1999), and many shorter trips. I added an electric landing brake actuator which I really like. I'm currently developing an ambitious, low cost, very full featured custom EZ multifunction display with an 8" color LCD touch screen. Feature list is "everything but the kitchen sink". Primary design goals are very low cost, reliable and intuitive. Just add GPS/NAV/COM, transponder and fly. Solid state gyro instruments when the price performance improves.
