Cozy MKIV - Unofficial Documents to Share
- I used the COZY checklist as the basis for mine, and then added some
stuff from the Cessna and Warrior checklists that I use(d), as well as
some stuff I actually figured out myself during the first couple of
- I adapted Tristan Vincent-Philpott's adaptation of Nat Puffer's
original, generic COZY MKIV POH to fit the specifics of N83MZ's latest
incarnation. I removed a great deal of the generic info that was not
specific to MY aircraft, but talked about how to get an airplane set up.
- Kevin Walsh has created what I consider the canonical Phase I Flight
Test Protocol for canard aircraft. You can download this in PDF format
or MS Word format and modify for your own aircraft and test program.
- I've also got a COZY MKIV W&B
spreadsheet for downloading.
- Nigel Field created a
spreadsheet for Weight and Balance Calculations for the COZY MKIV.
This is in WK4 format (for Lotus 123), zip'ed:
- I created a cost spreadsheet in Lotus 123 to examine the
relative costs of different vendors, as well as to evaluate the costs of
different options. It's pretty raw, and needs some work, but here it is
(in WK4 format, zip'ed):
- Spreadsheet for: cost - WK4
- Nigel Field also created a spreadsheet for doing the stress
calculations for his propeller fabrication technique. this is an MS
Excel format file, zip'ed:
- Al Wick and Tim
Hustad have created spreadsheets for Time Tracking for the COZY
MKIV These are pretty spiffy. These exist in XLS format (for MS EXCEL),
(Remember to set "Load to Local Disc" or the equivalent on your
browser - you don't want [unless you've got AMI PRO, MS Word Excel
and/or 123 set up as viewers] to try to view these on-line).
Ed Richards created this Excel Spreadsheet with his entire wire list for
his electrical system:
George Richards, a Falco
builder/flyer in New Zealand, provided this Excel spreadsheet
for calculating wire sizes given amperage and wire length. He said
it was from a Kitplanes article long ago.
Larry Jansch scanned in a COZY photo for use as "wallpaper" for your
PC/Mac. You can download these JPG images here and convert them to
BMP format with an image editor.
Here's a paper from the Sensenich Corporation about wood propeller hub
forces and bolt compression forces.
There are a set of wheelpants molds traveling the rounds - this is the
instruction manual for the fabrication and installation of the same.
