For Sale
LPU Great Planes Waco YMF-5D RTF $300

this is my giant scale Waco Biplane. 72" WS. I absolutely gaurantee it flies and runs Superb! Has a Evolution 1.20NX glow engine with a $40 Pitts muffler. JR 2300mah 6v Rx battery. Standard ST47bb servos all the way around. AR500 Spektrum receiver ready for binding to your Transmitter. Just fuel up and fly. The cowl is cracked from a previous mishap but that could be replaced for $40 from Tower hobbies. The ARF alone runs $450 if you have Tower Super Saver discount. I don't like having to take the wings off to transport it in my Jeep. Local Pick Up $300 Olivet, MI. Serious buyer can see it fly right at my own private field at my home. Please send me a private message if interested. I have lowered price because I have to pay Uncle Sam taxes I wasn't expecting.

Would you sell it without the motor,? a 4 stroker would be cool on this plane.

It sells for the price listed. What you do with it is up to you. There is a video of it flying with this motor on my blog site. Just click on my username and you will find it. By the way I am about an hour and a half from Fort wayne straight up I-69

Was the landing gear torn out? Coming thru your area in a couple days, very interested. Just trying to figure out why the gear is different and why it's so cheap?

Yes I knocked the lg off. The fiberglass that surrounded it was badly cracked so I removed it. The LG is permanent. It could be removed but would involve some recovering. I promise it is rock solid and would be worth your while to check it out. I don't have any way to haul it around without removing the wings. The planes is solid, runs super and flies super. I lost my job and need some funds.
