I just recently completed the Joe Wagner Sioux. I have about 5 flights on it so far and looking forward to more. Since the loss of my Dakota a few months ago, it has left me a bit heartbroken over losing it. I built this one over the past few days and I might be able to get a flight on it this weekend pending on the weather. I did it in the same scheme, clear dope and the blue trim just like the Sioux. Power is going to be a couple of choices. I have a OK .049A with tank, OK .049 B, Cox Babe Bee .049, Pee Wee .020 or a Anderson Spitzy .045. The OK .049A has me a bit concerned due to it sticking out a bit more due to the tank. The Babe Bee has too much power in my opinion. Nonetheless, blind nuts are in the firewall for all. The Pee Wee has a spacer to put it out more.

I didn't see you mention weight? what does she weigh? that seems to be the big limitation for the Pee Wee. Two Cents

Joe Wagner says: "My involvement  in the  model  industry began in1949 when the  MHIA  chose  me  to demonstrate model airplanes  on their  coast-to-coast  “Bandwagon” tour.  While on that  trip,  I  first met Roy Cox.  He  told me  about  troubles  he  was  experiencing  with a 1/2A  racecar  engine he wanted  to produce  –  and I suggested that  reed valve  induction might  solve  the  problem."

I think that a Babe Bee is the right choice for the Dakota.

Thanks all for the compliments. I didn't weigh it because I really have no need too. It's much lighter than my previous Dakota. My wood choices were far superior on this one. As for the Babe Bee, it really is too powerful and there's a You Tube video of Ritchie flying his Dakota. A perfect example of too much power and what happens. Free flight of this category demands a anemic engine. The Anderson Spitzy is the ideal choice. A Atwood Wasp would also be a good choice. My original OK powered Dakota flew out never too return again. I prepped the firewall for a Cox engine due to the possibility of making it a diesel. My Sioux was very successful using the diesel and it really tames down the engine.

Ken,

Beautiful airplane!

I've always loved the Dakota and have a kit somewhere at home to use for templates. Haven't checked but expect the kit wood to be heavy.

Another sheet wood design I love is the Ranger 30, which was my first fly away on it's maiden flight! Last I saw it was headed for the Atlantic Ocean and the new Pee Wee was still running strong when it went OOS!

Bill, the Ranger 30 is a really cool plane. My buddy Dan flies one and we had it out a few weeks ago. He also has a Sniffer which is dynamite. I would love to see longer flights on the Sniffer but I know the inevitable will happen.

Ken,

I also love the Sniffer and have a kit of that beauty at home. Can't check at the moment, because I'm sheltering with my daughter's family, while that communist virus is running wild.

Doubt I'll be flying FF again any time soon, but keep hoping anyway.

I seem to remember Willie Nillies telling me he plans to release a kit oh the Ranger 30 later in the year and will be sure to get my order in as soon as it's announced.

The Ranger is kind of small for R/C assist, but the Sniffer should handle it well. I would not fly either one without some kind of safety system.

Nice Dakota build, super light. Pee Wee would be a shoe in. My Ranger 30 FF with Pee Wee, built may be 25 years ago. We have very few calm days annually to fly it though here in the high desert. Yes, inside is very limited except for micro RC equipment, must be done during construction.

Outerzone plans, I supplied photos, instruction sheet (did not come with plans), someone else provided the parts sheet.

Outerzone: Ranger 30 Plan# oz3830

Joe Wagner more or less upsized to 30" wingspan his Dakota for RC, renaming it the Osprey. This would be suitable for .049 Bees:
