Any ideas? Some are calling this a cicada killer but those look MUCH more like wasps…this has a more dragonfly like tail but appears to only have two wings..

This is a predatory Robber Fly, and you were astute to observe that it has a single pair of wings. We believe it is a Giant Robber Fly in the genus Promachus which is well represented on BugGuide.
