Default Wild Wiz

Here is a picture of my son with our third Wild Wiz. This one has an OS .32 for power, other one still flying has a TT .36 with pipe. Both planes are very fast, TT .36 is in the 140 mph range. Also, these planes are capable of some of the wildest tricks you ever seen. Roll rate is unbelievably quick. I found a bright color on top and dark on bottom work best to keep up with it.

Default muffler for Wild Wiz

I went and bought an expensive Jettfire muffler for my OS .32 and you are right, it hits the wing. Hence, mine in the picture above uses the stock muffler. Gets along just fine, just does not sound as cool as a pipe. My first Wiz has a TT .36 with pipe, I built a sorta tunnel for the pipe. If you drill out the exit end of the stock muffler a little you can pick up a little RPM and still keep enough back pressure. You need to be sure and not eliminate all back pressure, because the tank needs good pressure to stay running at the high G's the Wiz is capable of.

Good Luck!

I've got one too, with the O.S. 32. It's a fun little plane!
Having the rudder makes it more fun. It'll do one of the wildest blenders I've ever seen! It'll flat spin all day long. It has a roll rate like a drill bit. It's pretty fast too.
You're gonna like it.

Hey--I have one of those also. I am trying to include photo. I had a .32 on it but the engine did not run very well. Went to a TT Pro 25 that I had bought for combat--but it was a dog in combat and not very fast on WW. Next will try Norvel .25 with mouse can pipe. I like the comment about rolling like a drill bit--very appropriate. I would get it going fast as I could, then push all controls sticks to top center--it would practically stop in the air. Looked like a fluttering leave.

The Wiz designer flys at my field. You should see his spin, it's way overpowered and goes about a hunderd.

I had mine clocked with a speed gun at 101 mph in level flight. I think I was running a regular MAS 9x5 maybe 9x6 Thunder Tiger Pro 26 with stock muffler. Probable a speedier prop would have increased speed, but I'm not as concerned as much about speed as tricks. I want to learn the pile driver maneuver, but it kind of scares me. I got it into a flat spin one time and it spun right into the ground--kind of pancaked with no damage.

I have no radio gear in mine right now, but reading all these posts is rather motivating. I have a couple of months before combat kicks off at my field, soooooo...maybe this weekend.

Put Some washers between the motor mount on the muffler side to get some clearence for your muffler. Hope thi s helps. The wiz needs a bout 2 degrees down thrust and about that much right thrust to make it fly better. The down thrust will also help with the clearence on the muffler..

I think he's probably got it figured out by now. This thread is only 5 YEARS OLD. [sm=what_smile.gif][sm=wink_smile.gif]

It's an old thread but it's a fun plane and still supported by Rick Haslam. He has updated the construction. Mine has a World engine Brat 25 and goes plenty fast for me. The .32 probably helps with hand launching though. I think this was actually designed for a 40 but I'd have no use for something THAT overpowered.

The first Wiz I flew was Rick Haslam's own plane. This was back in 2002 or 2003 and he had a Norvel .25 with a home made mousse can setup. It was surprisingly fast and unbelievably maneuverable. I have kept one of these flying ever since. Mine is the older design with balsa cap strips for ribs. I think he now uses bamboo dowels for the ribs. I run a .32 on mine and although it is not quite as fast as a Dust it is really a blast to fly. It is on my "must have" list with the Dust.

I have got to get busy building my Screamin Demon!

Did you ever find out the CG on this? I just picked one up that someone started, no plans or manual.

The balance point runs 8 - 9 inches behind the front edge of the motor mount. If it is slugish, especially when the engine is not running, you are nose heavy. If you find it darting up and down, it is tail heavy. This is right from Rick's original instructions. I have three, one with a .40, very fast, one with a .32 on a pipe, still fast and agile. One with a .25 that is very agile.

Thanks, found a sight that gave the formula for deltas. I made this an electric should do pretty good. Had a TF Holy Smoke years ago with a custom built fox 40 very light on a pipe turning a 9x7 at 18,000 no jets were in that realm then. thanks again, gary
