The Dakota was designed in September 1949, and was Joe Wagner's first design kitted. The Dakota was designed as a "foolproof" 1/2A free flight, and incorporated several features that provided automatic stability in flight. The BMJR kit includes all laser cut parts, includes notched wing leading edges and the pre-bent landing gear wire. Everything needed to build this model is in the box except glue, engine and a fuel proof coating. BMJR is delighted to have had the opportunity to work with Joe on his re-release of a true all-time-classic. 24" span. Model was originally flown with an OK Cub .049. We have also built and flown 1 with a Baby Bee (went OOS on an almost full tank) and a Pee Wee 020.
