Possible interest in the Squaw - - but only for the early '50s version (i.e., pollywog airfoil, 39.25" span) - - NOT the later "squared-off" 38" version from Veco and/or Dumas.

Mike,, you may limit your desirability by sheeting the leading edge,, I am pretty sure that would constitute a change and make them unsuitable for OTS, my understanding is that the model must appear identical on the outside,, a sheeted leading edge would be visible,,

Could be wrong,, just my understanding

Yes it would be looked down upon. Make the kits as per the originals. Any changes to be made, leave that up to the builder of the kit.
  A kit mfg. should try to make the kits as close to or exact as possible to the originals.

Mark I am not sure either.  Maybe somebody who knows for sure could clear that up.  Since I do no compete anymore I have not kept up with the rules.  If I built one for myself I would build it that way but you bring up a good point.

I am looking for the  flapped profile I guess the version on the Pampa site for the date. I was not aware that there are different versions.

Indeed there are different versions.  The basic Primary Force is a profile without flaps...there was indeed a version of that same airplane with Flaps and nother changes.

One of the airplanes Mike had at a past contest here in Tucson was a beautif full blown Stunter with a PA65 and bout 700 sq in of wing area.

If your purpose in finding a date is to see if they are classic legal, I think none are...I'm not sure about Super 70's but truly doubt it!

Certainly the one in PAMPA News Mag is not!

Maybe Mikey P. will weigh in here he does occasionally show up on the forum but hasn't been on for a while.

No sweat, Randy...I knew what you meant.  Those were the days of REAL Speed events:  Doolings, McCoys, Torps...two lines and no limits on fuel.

Anything forward of the firewall is for show or aero not structural.

Numbers transposed there?  Probably more like a 6-7 prop, I'd guess.

Yeah, good catch Mike...your post made me go to the shop and dig out some old records from those times...yes believe it or not I used to keep excellent recorda of nearly each flight (especially in Speed) and it said there were a plethora of props tried but the best times were with mofified tornado 7-7 cut and reshaped to 6.1-7.   Hey forgive the error it was 58 years ago.  I have trouble remembering what I had for breakfast today!!!

Your speed is roughly round 35 mph.  With a 20 ounce airplane I think that's a bit too slow for 50 ft lines 42 ft might fit a bit better.  I've flown 20 ounce Ringmasters on 60 ft lines at about 54 mph OK.   But slower than that is too slow.  That would equate to about 45 mph on 52 ft lines.

If it were mine to try I would expect about 42 ft line would work OK, but I certainly can't disagree with Tim in that starting with 50 ft and cutting them as required is a reasonable idea.  I would however be sure to test fly it on a day when there was little to no wind.

Like others here I would very much like to know what engine you are using.

I think I might just run it on something, but still undecided.
Plus I'm tired of asking DLR to help me with venturi's....
But, you should have seen that magnum boogie. It was impressive!

OK, T. If there is any pop left in the green head, I have a NIB Thunder Tiger 15. RC, inc muffler I would consider trading. If you're interested, i'll bring it to WN.
