Default RE: 30 SIZE SWIZZLE STICK??? 30 SIZE ???

Frank, I had one of those easily over 30 years ago and flew it with a K&B21 with a Davis Diesel head in it. The only problem with it was it was a ground looper. Don't know what it was but I tweaked that gear and wheel set up infinitely to no avail. Also redid the tail wheel geometry which helped a little. Hate to say it but I hand launched it wuite a bit.
If doing it today I'd do like the competition C/L boys do and make the tail wheel long enough to set the plane at flying attitude. Makes ground handling a lot easier.
Put me down for a set.
