It's great to know that this one is so resilient!

The pilot I have in mine is at motion rc. The link to him is below

http://www.motionrc.com/fms-scale-pilot-figure-008/

I think he's perfect for this plane. Hit the show all pictures in thread and you can see a good close up of him in the cockpit.

Mine is on the bottom of page 3 of the pictures in post... labeled Larry

I used the pilot from the parkzone albatross.

Not a great scale pilot but it fit and I like the scarf. If I recall from Miller's posts his pilot looks more scale. Mine was just a wee bit smaller than I would have like. But I love the period look on him.

Thanks and I think tenacity = reliance. I just missed picking up P-51's custom Waco he had on sale. I had been admiring his custom paint job. I think its for the best as I would feel bad shelving the Drunk Monkey.
Btw (and not to get off topic) but the dynamo geebee is like the Waco's zippy little brother. What a great plane to fly.
If you can find the pilot that comes with the geebee it would be a perfect fit for the Waco. Nitro planes does not have the part. Haven't checked Grayson yet.

Flying weather has arrived in WV. The WACO was one of three I put up today. It is a good day, everything came home in one piece!

I didn't have a Beaver with me yesterday, just the Cessna, Mustang and WACO. However, I have a Beaver that I leave the wheels on in summertime and switch to skis in winter and one I leave on floats all the time.
